Kitaro/ Kirby Crossover4014 views{PLEASE READ}
Happy Halloween, Kirby's Rainbow Resort! This year, Daimyo's conjured- up something great for the holiday spooktacular; a “Gegege no Kitaro” & “Hoshi no Kirby” Crossover! But, just what is this Kitaro, you may ask? Gegege no Kitaro (AKA: Kitaro of the Graveyard) is Japan's most famous classical manga about Yokai (mischievous Japanese spirits/ creatures) with an anime spanning nearly 6 whole series (one every decade)! Created in 1959 by Manga-ka, Shigeru Mizuki, it tells the story of a goblin-boy and his bizarre Yokai friends who get into freaky adventures, and meet even creepier characters, all while trying to preserve the peace between the human and Yokai realms. There have even been two movies made of the series to date; yet despite all of this, Gegege no Kitaro remains in Japan, untranslated, while the rest of the world (or, at least the U.S.) misses out, much to my dismay. I love all of the creative and often humorous Yokai-monsters of Japan, and just thought that it would be appropriate (and necessary!) to present the Resort with a little something this Hallow's Eve. So, with that, Have fun finding all the Kirby and Kitaro characters listed here~!

Kabimaru-Matsuri Cho-man'in-E~!3989 viewsAfter months of AWOL-riddance, your beloved Daimyo has at last returned to KRR, friends and fans! Here, we have a super-jam-packed picture (of which I am so well-known for) featuring a literal metric tonne of characters from my planned/upcoming/still-long-off dojin-manga, inspired by “Samurai Kirby”. Depicted are creatures from all over the Kirby-canon, each painstakingly redesigned by yours truly, and even some of my own creation and IF entries. Most importantly, each individual has a distinct purpose and is relevant to some aspect of Japanese/Asian culture (You have only to inquire, and I may expectorate...). Picture was drawn in pencil on watercolor paper, outlined in India ink pens, and colored with watered-down felt tip markers. I started this before college, and only got to finish over winter-break. All-in-all, it took no more than one week of cherished free-time~!
In all actuality, I really wish I had the wherewithal to go through with this majestic manga undertaking, as I am filled with glorious ideas aplenty. However, dern art-college courses be taking up all my me-art-time! Last semester nearly “broke” me in every regard (physically, mentally, financially, not to mention emotionally! Dem dames~). And so, I could not afford to create this masterpiece for no personal gain. Selfish, I know; BUT, there IS something to look forward to, from me, soon enough! Does anyone remember the bygone and neglected “Pic Fics” (or Picture Fictions) of yesteryear, here at the Rainbow Resort? No? Well, once I unload my next masterwork, a year in the making, no one shall forget again! In the meantime, feast your eyes on this delectable pic of over 100 characters and see if you have the skills to recognize them all!

Essence_of_Dream_Course_001.jpg
Essence of Dream Course3943 views12th in my "Essence of" series. Boy, this was fun to draw! So much Dedede-influence! Kirby's Dream Course for the SNES was a 'different' type of Kirby game. Its main premise was golf. Kirby could roll into a ball to charge up his shot, then spring forward to try and reach the hole. He could destroy enemies and obtain abilities just by bouncing into them- all in all, the game was quite fun, but tedious. The only boss in the entire game is King Dedede, fighting in his giant, robot replica, with Mini-Dededes.13 commentsDedede-Daimyo
Epic-Yarn__Baggers_001.jpg
Epic-Yarn'Baggers3925 viewsHai-low, Rainbow-Resortto! I hope everyone is as excited for KEY as I am; only half a month away, now! This pic was supposed to appear in last week's mailbag release, albeit a rushed version, but it was somehow forgotten/overlooked. That is okay, however, because now that I've had more time to work on this, it is at least an acceptable product of yours-truly. Actually, time-itself has been hard to come by, recently, since my workload at art-college has demanded much more of me than previously blurted. Not that it's anything beyond my almighty-art-abilities, just extremely time-consuming, even with no other preoccupations. So, please excuse my rather distantness lately. Much good fanart has been made by gallery members over the past few months, and I wish to comment/congratulate them when I get a chance. Keep up the good work, everybody! Tonikaku, this piece may be used as October's Front Page Picture, if the admins wish...;P
Was drawn in pencil, inked in extra-fine ink pen, outlined in manga marker, colored in felt-tips, and edited in GIMP. (This may just be my most digital-made artwork yet? Cut/Paste is a lot less stressful than drawing the setting out-and-around the characters.) All credit for the background goes to Nintendo and the opening cut-scene of Kirby's Epic Yarn for Wii. Whaha-ha-no-ha~
Ohirah! And Happy 11th Birthday, Website! (Glad the notice was sudden, and I didn't have to kill myself making another pic this year!) And did'ya hear about the new DS Kirby game stated for next year? There's just too much awesome goin' on down here~!

Mischief_Knight___Moon_Knight_001.jpg
Mischief Knight & Moon Knight3882 viewsThankyou, Bimblesnaff, for waiting for me all these months, so that I may finish my creations for the latest IF contest, before you drop the guillotine. I didn't see the submit option, but I didn't see anything saying there couldn't still be more submissions, so here are the two of mine, surely to be winners. I have been planning these guys since friggin' September of last year, but could only now finish, due to art-college. I humbly ask you may accept my entries. ~Daimyo.

**Mischief Knight**
Named after the night before Hallows Eve, Mischief Knight is Pop Star's biggest prankster (even more-so than Prank, himself). This puff-ball is violet in color and wears a mask of a halved jack-o-lantern. His yellow eyes peer through the pumpkin's mouth, like fangs- giving him a false-face, similar to Bukiset. His armor consists of pure season's sweets; the shoulders are made of mini chocolate peanut butter cups, while the shoes are candy corn colored. Protruding from the back of his head are two floppy points, akin to the style of a jester's hat, with dangling ghost and lollipop decorations. Like TAC, on his back, he carries a giant spherical sack, filled with stolen candy, and imprinted with a large spiderweb motif. Mischief Knight brandishes a tall candlestick as a weapon and swings it like a sword.

His basic attack is a quick downward swing with the candle, however, he will sometimes swing the candle back up again, which will create a brief fire-forcefield, good for blocking a single attack. Another candle-attack involves him using the stick's flame like a blowtorch. Mimicking Meta Knight's move, a wave of fire ripples across the ground until it hits a wall, where it will produce an inhalable star. If the foe is persistently flying above Mischief Knight's reach, the prankster is able to shoot his bag up in an attempt to either score a hit, or use the spiderweb-print sack to actually stick to the ceiling, allowing him to fight in the air until it releases. Mischief Knight goes “Egging” for a projectile-based attack. These exploding eggs are thrown either one or three at a time, and are inhalable, similar to Bonker's coconuts. Finally, in a desperate move to restrain the foe, Mischief Knight hurls a roll of binding toilet paper. Thrown in a straight line, the TP is easily dodged, but if it makes contact, the opponent will be wrapped in white sheets for a few seconds (struggling will allow for quicker escape) permitting Mischief Knight to bring the burnin' blaze. Outside of battle, Mischief Knight takes over Meta Knight's niche for very rarely passing-out Hyper Candy, elusively throughout the game. I am sometimes mischief...

**Moon Knight**
This celestial knight is Goddess of Pop Star's moon (unlike that poser, Mr. Shine) and takes her style and appearance from the Chinese holiday of “ZhongQiuJie”, or the Mid-Autumn Festival. She is an orchid-colored blob wearing a Chinese-Opera mask, in the shape of a rabbit (or, as I'll have you know, the emblem of Dedede). The mask is painted with the makeup of a beautiful woman, with cherry-blossom petal designs for the ears and mouth, and two very thin slits for her turquoise eyes. Instead of warrior's armor, she wears a pink waist-skirt that covers 2/3 of her body, which is secured with her mask by a red string, tied around the center in a bow, with jade endings. She holds no weapon in her hands, but constantly clutches a light blue shawl which floats behind her head and loops at both ends like sleeves. She wears black shoes with white bottoms, and a row of buns on her head, along with a huge black headdress shaped like a tire. Within this inner-tube (which is actually based on a real Chinese hairstyle) is Moon Knight's weapon- a mirror (symbolizing the full moon in Chinese art).

This mirror is Moon Knight's primary means of attack, and she uses it as one would the Cutter Ability. The mirror is hurled from her hairdo, out across the screen at rather slow pace, then returns like a boomerang. Attacking the mirror like this, but not simply colliding with it, will cause it to shatter and respawn on her head. Moon Knight also sometimes uses a rice-pounding mallet to inflict damage in close range, which produces an inhalable star on impact (this relates to the rabbit-in-the-moon of East Asian lore). A more passive attack involves Moon Knight floating up on purple clouds and slowly approaching the enemy in attempts to collide with them, akin to Dedede's float-attack. In yet another offensive maneuver, Moon Knight launches a “mooncake” (the special treat of the Mid-Autumn Festival) into the air with her mirror. It will then return onscreen, where the foe was last standing, in one of two forms- either a small mooncake that can be inhaled for ammo, or a humongous mooncake that could easily catch the player off-guard (and requires a full-strength inhale, if possible). Finally, Moon Knight's ultimate and rarest attack is the Moon Beam, in which she reflects the risen-moon's light off her hair-mirror, into a concentrated laser that is directed at the enemy. The beam can follow the foe almost anywhere on screen, but will stop if attacked, or after a few seconds. Despite all her abilities and the theme of a reflecting mirror, Moon Knight has less than average endurance and little defense. The one time she can shield herself is during her short hops, where she rapidly somersaults, like Kirby with the Star Rod. The mirror-headdress revolves around her round body, reflecting projectiles and damaging those who come in contact with her.

Wood_Knight_001.jpg
Wood Knight3648 viewsWood Knight is my creation for the Round Knights of the Table “Interactive Fandom”, which took nearly a month to completely render-- planning, picture, and prose! Anyway, I’d thank you for actually reading what I have written, as it contains a great amount of knowledge and thought put into it.
Wood Knight draws especially from Chinese history and philosophy, and if you had not figured it out by now, is a Kirbyfied version of the “Terracotta Warriors”, which are thousands of realistic, life-size clay statues unearthed from the tomb of China’s first Emperor. This is part of the reason he is sometimes referred to as Terracotta Knight. The clothing he wears is reminiscent of that worn by Qin Dynasty soldiers, with plated metal or leather armor instead of clay. His wood staff takes the shape of a horse head because horses and equestrian skills were very important to China’s history. Also, all the original Terracotta Warriors’ weapons had deteriorated from age, but the large horse statues in the tomb had survived. The sonar on top of his helm is based on a type of hairstyle generals in the Qin army wore. Terracotta’s blindness comes from being buried under ground for so long; his great age being the reason for his one-hit-K-O lifespan.
Also rooted in Wood Knight’s being is thought from the Chinese oracle, I Ching; in particular, the Hexagram of “Pushing Upward”. Its basis is that of wood springing forth from the earth (I.E.; the growing wood staff extends from Terracotta> ‘baked earth’). In addition, I believe this fortune applies to me as well, as the underlying meaning states: a man will reach a high position if he is steadfast in his actions and puts in the work for success! Anyway, feast your eyes on my hard-made comic! It follows the description on the IF page.

Essence_of_Tilt_n_Tumble.jpg
Essence of Tilt'n'Tumble3625 views16th in my glorious “Essence of” series. My, it has been far too long since my last entry, but with all my other accomplishments in-between, perhaps the great wait will be excused!? Anyway, Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble was one of the most unique K-games made, and most innovative for it's time. Released exclusively for the Game Boy Color, KTnT's game play utilized motion-sensor technology to move Kirby throughout the stages. It was as if the pink pudge was sitting right on the screen, and he would roll any direction the hand-held was tilted, and would even jump if the device was flicked. Very groundbreaking gravitational controls, for sure, but I prefer a traditional Kirby platformer, thanksmuch. A 3-D sequel was once in the works for the Gamecube, but was eventually abandoned. Come on, HAL, produce! Any Kirby game would be better than none! This pic is a first for my essesnces, in that I have added characters that are less than actual bosses, some unique to TnT, but I figured that there would be no better time to showcase them. The Orbservers are observing youse~!9 commentsDedede-Daimyo
Shippuu_001.jpg
In Honor of KCCh: Shippuu3622 views[Full View Please] Dedicated to the fine team working on the Fan Game, Kirby: Cosmic Chaos, composed of Huwpow00, Mico, KlonoaWarrior, Booman77, T3h-Sparksta, Alby, GBAKirbster2007, Caat, Mamthew, And the great Minon! (everyone, yes?!) Anyway, Shippuu is an original character included in KCCh that holds the new Fan Ability. He is also a Tengu, hence he has caught my interest. I have modified his look a little, giving him a Shimenawa rope with Yuigesa pompoms. Also is wearing Tengu-Geta and Tokin. Sakura Pen, Colored Pencils, and Watercolor Markers.8 commentsDedede-Daimyo
Samurai_Kirby_Crew.jpg
Samurai Kirby Crew3622 viewsTeyande! Over the past few months, now that my epic-ordeal known as the Mailbag Manga has passed, I have been contemplating the creation of a new manga, based on the universe of the Samurai Kirby subgame in Kirby Super Star. I am unsure about committing to such an endeavor (I really should start spending some time on an original work) but if there is enough positive response to this proposal, I will create a chapter and see where the story goes from there.
Tonikaku, here we have the three main characters- Kirby, Meta, and Dedede- with modified designs, drawn and colored in the KSS style. Each comes from a different class of Feudal Japanese hierarchy; their personalities reflect their game counterparts, but the characters and setting are separate from traditional Kirby-canon. Their names derive from the Japanese pronunciation. The locale is Eastern Popstar, Dreamland of the Rising Sun, a place where everything is Oriental-style with a Kirby-twist.
Dedede-Daimyo: the highest ruler in all the 'Land (disregarding the unseen Shogun)! He commands the country from his prodigious castle-fortress and demands absolute loyalty from his retainers and subjects. Very much like the games, Dedede shows his influence by ordering his citizens to pay high taxes to him as tribute, in koku (i.e. stealing their food). He is dressed in traditional Samurai Kirby costume, with a high-collar, kabuki-style trim, and ceremonial Odachi sword. I finally got the topknot hairstyle down, by incorporating Dedede's crown from Kirby 64, to create a true chasen-gami look. The name is a play on his Japanese name, Dedede-Daio (great king), with the last character changed to signify him as a Daimyo (samurai lord).
Metanaito Musashi: the most advanced swordsman in allegiance to the Daimyo. He is a warrior of unparallelled skill and discipline, enthralled by the samurai code of Bushido and Zen. As in the games, Meta is a great general and commands an army under Dedede, but secretly plots to overthrow him one day. His appearance draws from his official look, combined with plated samurai armor and neck-guard, and dual, Daisho swords, one of which is the Master Sword from the games. The iconic slash on his mask from Samurai Kirby here comes with the loss of one eye, so as not to fall victim to the tired cliche. Meta Knight's forename follows the romanji of his Japanese name, Metanaito, with the surname baring a reference to Miyamoto Musashi, Japan's greatest swordsman.
Kabimaru: a young boy from a peasant-farming family that claims the title of Samurai Kirby in order to rise through the ranks, and right the wrongs that plague the country. He is just a Beginner swordsman, having labored in the fields most of his young life, but with continuing effort, eventually becomes a Novice, and finally an Expert fencer. However, there is more to this Samurai Kirby than meets the eye-- he has the power to inhale enemies and their attacks to copy their abilities. He channels the copied power into his Rainbow Sword, the Kaleido-Katana, similar to ability combos in Squeak Squad that gives him a boost in skill. Samurai Kirby's appearance is unchanged from the Titular game, except that he has a more cheerful disposition. The name Kabimaru stems from Kirby's Japanese name, Kaabii, and maru, meaning circle, a naming-suffix for boys in feudal-era Japan. Very fitting, no?
So, that's it. Based on the fans' judgments, I may make a manga in accordance with what I've laid-out here. Drawn in pencil, inked in India ink brush pens, colored in color pencil, and sprite background added in GIMP.

Kabuki_Kirby~!.jpg
Kabuki Kirby and Co.3600 viewsIt was inevitable~... Who other than I would produce such an impressive work pertaining to the brand-new Kirby of Kabuki ability? Wha-hohoho-no-hoi! Daimyo returns to the Gallery after a well-deserved rest from the 10 Year Anniversary Party-Pic (which is STILL on the front page, thanks!); I plan now to resume submissions of 2-and-3-D artwork on a steady basis. Here-and-now, we see the special, Hoshi no Kaabii 3-D mini-episode, “Take it Down; Demon Beast Ebizou”, (if you haven't seen or heard about it, go to it!) which debuts a new Kirby ability, known as “Kabuki”. Kabuki is a form of traditional Japanese theater, dating back over 400 years; stories center around historical drama, action, and myth; actors are highly stylized, their actions are expressive and exaggerated, and it all has a very distinct appearance that has withstood the test of time. When Kirby acquires the ability, he first appears to take the form of an actual costumed actor- specifically a Yamabushi (mountain-monk). He goes through the classic Mie-poses and Aragoto-movements common to the art, which all turns out to be 'just an act' to distract the enemy. Kirby ultimately attacks by a “Stare of Death”~ launching a blast from his forehead, the enemy is left paralyzed. He finalizes by obliterating the enemy with a long Bo-staff.
Accompanying the picture is the cast of 'Samurai Kirby' and others. I might as well say, that throughout next year, I plan on drawing a traditional manga (or doujinshi) based on the concept and world of this minigame. It will surely be my greatest work~ but a whole lot'a work! As the year closes, I will try to get done with the “Essence of” series of 2D artworks, and paint my final KSSU figure set. And maybe another mailbag. Gotta 'nother Emaki to finish too, shimatta... Also plan to submit a few stories to 'Snaff's new “Pic Fic” brain-child, in due time. This is all just a reminder to myself, for future reference, and a foreshadowing for others. Oh yea, the media used in picture as follows: Outlined in India Ink, Figures colored in Colored Pencil, Background colored in Felt-tip Marker. So, until next time, Bye-cha!

Ukiyo-e_Dedede_001.jpg
Ukiyo-e Dedede3506 viewsDedede is dressed like Horibe Yasubei, a character in the Japanese classic play, 47 Ronin (Chūshingura). Ukiyo-e are woodblock prints, literally "Pictures of the Floating World"; most with a major focus on actors and Kabuki theator. This picture is based on Toyokuni Utagawa III's work, entitled "Kanadehon Chūshingura", which are three paintings showing the first kabuki production of 47 Ronin. (I saw the giant hammer 'Ōtsuchi', and just had to do this :) Mine is done in markers and ink. The original print can be found here.14 commentsDedede-Daimyo
Koi-Mono_001.jpg
Koi-mono3477 views(Also known as the Koi-sode) Well, another semester of art college comes to a close. This outfit is based on my final project, a piece of wearable art- designed, sewn, and painted by myself. For the holiday of Japanese Children's Day, I have combined a fish-shaped kimono/kosode with the pattern of "Koinobori", Carp-streamer-windsocks. Also, the appearence of my sorta-fan-character has changed to reflect the impact of my training. Can you spot all references to Kirby's past and present, among others? Drawn in pencil, inked in brush-marker, and colored in felt tips.
(Well now that it's finally been posted, I can continue my comments)
~Now is that Gratitude, or is it really love? Some kind of reality, that fits just like a glove. Now is that Gratitude, for everything I've done? Or is it something else, that's got me on the run.~
What is this!? No longer can I instantly upload? No more #5 Gold Kirbies on my ratings? Who am I? I am not afraid to state, that I'm not particularly fond of the current state of KRR. Though I hate to admit it, I feel like the site is becoming the same stale shell of itself it was before a certain “rebirth” of humor and creativity, which has since passed, sad to say. This “renaissance” was what motivated me to get involved with the site in the first place, instead of just lurking as I'd done for years before, and it pains me to see all the witty efforts (including some of my own) having been buried by the dust of passive conformity. As I have displayed in art college, it is not enough to settle for mediocrity, you must not compromise your skilled potential for the easier path. Constantly push yourself farther, raise the bar for standards, and lead others through good example, and no doubt prosperity will flourish. The new KRR needs to take a clue from the past few years and give the viewers something they would really enjoy, in a way that incorporates the individual, and encourages others to join in, too. DO THIS, instead of activities which are ultimately just vainglorious attempts of self promotion by the few to many faceless titled-staff. Be steamed at me all you want, but first look at yourselves and see it you are really doing all you can for this great website. If so, you will really not have time to spare on me...
Yeah, I've had a bunch of art in the works for the site for a long while now. New sculptures, big drawings, picture scrolls, pic-fics, etc. Now that it's summer, I actually have the time to get some of that out here. However, I'm not sure if I really want to now. Simply put, I've lost the motivation. I still have my passion for Kirby, of course, but the site isn't exactly welcoming to me at this time. I guess I am partially to blame, having been out of the picture for so many months, but there is no excuse. Whatever happens, I wish all kirby fans the best of luck in the future.
