HAPPY 11th BIRTHDAY ROSALINA \(^o^)/
I know yesterday was so fun and crazy for many people but for me even more important than Halloween come Rosalina’s birthday on November 1st. It’s not an official birthday; Nintendo never told how old is Rosalina so this date is from Rosalina’s first appearance on Mario galaxy released on November 1st 2007 in Japan… °w°
I must admit I wasn’t able to make a SFW decicated post for Rosalina’s birthday last year, all illustration were to much explicit so for this year I wanted to be sure get something extra sweet and adorable to be sure no one miss about this special day. I had to deal last week with my phone stolen by a pickpoket then when I had time to go on the project there was less than a week to find an artist and Kiomaru1 was able deal with this deadline even if it was really short. He really did his best to finish in time even if Kiomaru1 was disturbed during the stream or close miss the last bus to get back home.
When I first talked with Kiomaru1 about a commission, the original idea was Lumas made so many gift that the floor was totally overflowed around the two girls, after all Rosalina’s is the adoptive mother of Luma race and no doubt they all wanted make a little present for their mama’s birthday. Having short delay for the illustration I offered Kiomaru1 to pick the girl he wanted to be with Rosalina and he decided to go with Stephanie from Lazytown, though I must admit he had to pick a girl that never meet Rosalina but still many choice left.
Then after details and payment set, Kiomaru1 started the sketch with the two girls appeared as fullbody but legs were cut since presents on the floor had to be reaching both girls knee. Finally after a few hours sketching the scene looked so cute that I told it wasn’t use to add the gifts floor. I really love Stepnanie pose and look that turn so adorable and the size difference between both girls making is even more sweet, I still like the original idea I had but I’ll get it for next year, like this wont be a hurry to prepare 2019 celebration piece… XD
Kiomaru1 really have an adorable style and did a marvellous job, as you can see with the wip on the right it started with a rought colouring giving a sketchy look before a cleaning process turning the illustration more smooth as you can see it now and also adding many details as on the cake or the gems in Rosalina’s crown but also the texturing for both girls clothes. A friend told me it’s “kinda warm and fuzzy” (I wasn’t able resist quote him). I hope you guys like this illustration, if you are tempted see more from Kiomaru1 then you can follow him on Picarto, just be warned he also do NSFW stuff so I can’t link more… ^^’
