"You denied my happines and now I shall return the world to ZERO to NOTHING, because if I cannot feel joy, no one ever will"*


Zero two from Kirby 64.
The master of Dark Matter.

I really don't know what to say about this one, it's one of the few fully colored pieces I've finished in a day,I finished it yesterday at.. 4 am I think?  I wanted to upload it before it got waxy so here it is.

Call it inspiration or a cosmic something or whatever, the thing is... it took me nearly a full day to finish it and I had a really strong feeling of unreality all the while. There was no pencil lineart, no inking, no planning, nothing.  It's as if the image created itself, it's so hard to explain! as if I wasn't really there to begin with or as if it was someone else doing the piece and not me. Has any of you experienced this? I'm a bit freaked out about it, but nevertheless, I like the result so I'm posting it here. 
I don't know why I get so inspired by villains from games meant for kids, but in this case, the music that plays during the final battle may have had a lot to with... whatever it was that compelled me to draw this.


When you really think about it, 02 is pretty creepy, villains are usually really dark looking but this being looks almost benevolent.
Even in the games it seems to be glowing in a place filled with dark matter, wich absorbs light, very little is revealed about it in the actual games, it's ovbiously sentient and powerful but it's motives are unclear.
I get a really strong "corrupted deity" vibe from it (that's why I depicted it with multiple limbs, like a hindu god) like something that is trying to destroy the universe for a supposedly righteous reason instead of trying to conquer it due to of ambition.

And it's not the first time it manifests, it tried to achieve whatever goal it may be pursuing before but it was defeated, yet there it is again... bleeding from previous battles but still able to summon enough strenght to swallow planets.

"Negaste mi felicidad ahora voy a regresar el mundo a CERO a NADA, por que si yo no puedo ser feliz, nadie mas podrá *

Zero two de Kirby 64.
El amo de la Materia Obscura.

No se que decir sobre esta, es una de las pocas piezas coloreadas por completo que termino en un día, la temriné ayer como a las... 4am, creo? Quería subirlo antes de que se pusiera ceroso así que aquí está. 
Díganle inspiración o una cosa del cosmos o lo que sea, pero la cosa es que me tardé casi un día entero en acabarla y mientras la estaba haciendo tenía una sensación de irrealidad tremenda. No hice lineas a lapiz, ni delineé ni planeé nada.
Es como si la imagen se hubiera creado sola, es dificil de explicar! como si yo no estubiera ahí desde el princiio o como si alguien mas estuviera dibujando y yo no. Alguien de ustedes ha experimentado esto? me esta asustando un poquito, pero aun así, me gustó el resultado así que lo puse aquí.
No se por que me inspiran tanto los villanos de juegos para niños pero, en este caso, la musica de esta batalla final tiene mucho que ver con... lo que sea que me inspiro para dibujar esta cosa.

Si realmente lo piensan 02 da miedo, los villanos normalmente se ven muy oscuros pero este ser se ve casi benévolo. 
Incluso en el juego parece que da luz en un lugar lleno de materia obscura que se supone que absorbe la luz, casi no se rebela nada sobre el en los juegos, es obvio que es poderoso pero su motivación no es clara.
Me da una vibra como de deidad corrupta (por eso lo interpreté con varias extremidades, como un dios hindú) como algo que quiere destruir el universo por razones supuestamente justas, y no conquistarlo por ambición.

Y no es la primera vez que se manifiesta, intentó lograr lo que sea que está tratando de hacer antes pero fue derrotado, y aun así aquí esta... sangrando por las batallas previas pero con suficiente fuerza como para tragarse planetas enteros.

One of my most favorite bosses (and boss themes) ever. You did an excellent job portraying an ethereal sort of vibe for 02, it looks as if there's some kind of aura around it. The vortex below is perfect as the background. Clap 

I'm also very interested by your experiences in the making of this piece. Very curious...

Sorry for the late reply! thank you so much for the comment! :)

I still don't know what to make of it, I haven't experienced anything like that again.
It was just a sudden urge to do draw this, everything else seemed unimportant, even things that would usually take priority over art like paperwork.

Hey, no problem at all! ^^ And I think other artists have had at least a similar experience as yours. This is the first time I've seen somebody talk about it here on DA, though.

Love this! I think it's cool how you made Zero's inner wing segments into arms; it really plays into the godly aura you were trying to portray. His (her/its) expression is so serene, too. Very majestic piece; nice work!
