Captain Falcon Is Made Of Win
Ok, it’s Birthday Card time again, the 22nd of this month being the turn of little brother Jon (he’s so wickle! Yet he’s 20! How can this beee?)
ANYway – my brothers and I are big fans of a video game series called ‘Super Smash Bros’ – it comes in three flavours: Original, Melee and Brawl – and is only found on Nintendo consoles *looks smug* – this is mostly because it only used to feature Nintendo characters, but recently it’s been joined by the likes of Solid Snake (Konami) and Sonic The Hedgehog (DUH!) meaning that i can finally stage the battle I’ve wanted to witness since i was 8 => Sonic Vs Mario!! (with no sissy Olympic events to put official polish on the madness). Sonic Rules Fools.
Err, getting back to the point of ART (specifically, MINE) one of my favourite characters in the series is a chap called Captain Falcon. He has many a name related fighting move and looks like this:
Now, I’ve ignored internet lingo as long as I possibly could, but I decided a while ago to finally embrace some of it by using words such as ‘Epic’ and ‘Fail’ – sometimes in combination – “Epic Fail, Dickwad” (little film ref for you there…)
While I was still struggling with it, I once provided ‘Because he’s Made Of WIN’ as an answer to my brothers mid-smash-bros question: ‘why is Captain Falcon so good’.
I thought it summed it up quite well, so here’s what i drew for his card:
See what I did there? I also used the same design to create what I think, would make a pretty cool T-shirt:
I’d like to put ‘MADE OF WIN’ either in white next to the image, or in red on the back to really ham up the idea 🙂 – watch this space.
Finally I’m just going to include another pic I did on Photoshop, featuring the Captain – like time it was for the Christmas just gone. Enjoy!
