The cutest Kirby drawing ever

I don't know if you're aware, but I've become a huge Kirby fan in the last year or two--ever since I played (and enjoyed the hell out of) Kirby's Epic Yarn. (Buy it here if you haven't already done so.)

As such, I practically melted in my seat when I came across the absolutely adorable illustration below while perusing the awesome Games With Boys tumblog a few days ago.

Unfortunately, I can't tell you who produced this wonderful drawing. I can tell you, though, where he/she first shared it: pixiv.net.

The drawing itself does remind me of Epic Yarn. They did a nice job

I tried to find someone to credit, too...but...to no avail. Thanks for the shout-out. I thought of you when I posted it, actually.

Bryan Ochalla said...

Yes, Adam, you're right! And anything that reminds of Epic Yarn is a great thing, IMO :)

Bryan Ochalla said...

You're welcome, Justin! And it's cute that you thought of me when you posted it. Have I become that much of a Kirby fanboy? LOL.

BTW, I've been meaning to tell you somewhere, anywhere -- here, Facebook -- that I've really been enjoying your tumblog as of late. Keep up the good work :)

Aww, bless <3

(I'm sorry I have nothing more constructive to say!)

Bryan Ochalla said...

No worries, Kimimi, you don't always have to say something constructive :)

Viewtiful_Justin said...

Thanks! I appreciate that! And...it's more that it was teeth-decayingly sweet than that it was Kirby. Adorable illustration=thinking of Bryan.

Bryan Ochalla said...

Ha! Well, I guess that makes sense. I do have a huge soft spot for adorable illustrations :)

That is... the cutest thing. I need Kirby's Epic Yarn in my life ASAP. Too bad it's still running for $80 over here D:

Anyways, just wanted to add that since you asked, the name of the user that drew the image is "Yugudora." His/her main page is here: http://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=2373359 I'm not entirely sure you can view that without an account, come to think of it... I have a Pixiv account for perusing the lovely art there, so I'm kind of familiar with the site.

Here's his/her gallery: http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?id=2373359 does anything show up for you? Maybe it's high time I made a "how to join Pixiv" tutorial...

Bryan Ochalla said...

Thanks for all of the info, Anne! Much appreciated :)

As for you getting Kirby's Epic Yarn: Yes! You should buy the NA and have it shipped to you after you've bought enough games. I think it can be had for about $19 here now...

Marco Grande Arbitro said...

I fully agree it is a nice Kirby!

Bryan Ochalla said...

Thanks, Marco! Granted, it's tough for Kirby to *not* be cute, but I think this illustration is especially cute :)

apricotsushi said...

$19?? Australia is robbing us blind

Bryan Ochalla said...

Actually, right now it's about $25 at Amazon, but I've seen it as low as $19. I can't believe it's so expensive in your neck of the woods!

GamesAndBiz said...

Wow. I didn't realise this was your site! Apologies for taking so long to visit.

I'll add it to my site's friend list and be sure to visit more often!

Also, Kirby is adorable.

Bryan Ochalla said...

No reason to apologize, GamesAndBiz! Also, thanks for adding my site to your friend list. Have I added your site to my links section? I'm going to have to check...

Anyway, I'm glad you find this particular drawing of Kirby adorable. too. Of course, who couldn't?
