So, thanks to ShampooTeacher's glorious bead sprites and painting skills, I got inspired to start doing some myself! Granted, I have no experience with canvas, and very little with paint, but I did my best!

My biggest complaint is that, in mixing the colors for this, I made them look far too realistic, nothing like the bright background to Mario, or even the brighter background in the coop itself. Oh well, just more to learn from :)

The detail of the process can be seen in my newly created blog here!

I absolutely adore the white mage one!

Especially the little red triangles on the sides. Reminds me of the white mage costume I made one year.

This is so cool! I'm honoured. I agree about the red triangles on the white mage. It's the PERFECT touch. Before I started pixel painting, I had no painting practice. (I almost failed Grade 10 art because I sucked at painting! (51%))
But as with most things in life, you have to start somewhere and the more you do, the better you get.
