Sean's Stripes by Tikara-the-Mew
Sean's Stripes
While doing some research on the different Splatoon Vendor NPCs for a potential comic project I have in mind, I learned that Crusty Sean is canonically a tiger prawn, specifically a Japanese tiger prawn! Seeing how IRL prawns of his species have these really pretty stripes, I couldn’t help but headcanon that Sean also has some nice looking stripes he keeps hidden under that fried jacket of his haha~

Sea Snail Salad by Tikara-the-Mew
Sea Snail Salad
Everyone’s favorite alley dwelling street urchin having some lunch~

For those that don’t know, this is Spyke from the Nintendo game Splatoon! It’s heavily implied that he eats these Super Sea Snails you bring him for upgrades (tearing them out of their shells with his handy screwdriver), but here’s the thing about that. *slaps marine biology goggles on*

Nearly all species of sea urchins live off a diet of marine plant-life, such as kelp, algae, seaweed, etc. Occasionally they‘ll scavenge around for any decaying animal matter that falls to the ocean floor, but that’s usually in cases where their main food sources are scarce.

Of course that gave me the dumb idea of Spyke making kelp salads with bits of sea snail in them, kinda like a chicken caesar salad, while also using the empty shell as a bowl.

Ten Years of the Most Excellent Game by Tikara-the-Mew
Ten Years of the Most Excellent Game

Ten years ago today, a very special game by Double Fine Productions was released. While it’s initial physical sales were severely underwhelming, thanks to digital distribution it’s since become a cult classic amongst videogames with many dedicated fans and more people discovering it even today.

I’ve only been a fan of it for around eight of those years, but this game has been a huge influence to me in regards to how I see storytelling, character design, gameplay, and so much more. I’ve met amazing people through this single game that I’ll remember for the rest of my life and I’m forever grateful for it. It’s helped me improve my art and taught me to work outside of what I was familiar with to become a better artist. I wish I could have done a much more involved image for this special occasion, but hopefully this little piece will still get my undying appreciation for this game across. It’s been in my list of all time favorite games for years and I’m sure it’ll be there for many more.

Happy 10th Anniversary, Psychonauts! You’ll forever be in our hearts and minds!

Thanks for the llama and have one in return. Remember to give it a good brush everyday or it will end up all poofy like this: :iconrunllamarun: (unless you want it all poofy of course, then you just give it a good brush every second day!) ;D
