Gosh darn... It went from a lil sketch like that to this page filler ❤.
The second hand on the left side was definitely an after thought, it was a art project for school but the teacher rejected it... So yeah know... That sucked.
It went from a shadow to a shoe to a monster design... I will digitally draw it to add proper textures, coloring and shading. It didn't take to long to make.
Here are some early concepts of my Julien's design here, my poison mushroom Mario OC! The first image is from January 2016, taken from an old 3-panel comic page that I was going to do, but never completed. This is where Julien's snow-cone stand gag came from, only it was originally a weapons stand on an island off the coast of Rogueport. This is the moment where I decided to give him a purple cap instead of the brownish tan one that I intended him to have in the early stages of his creation.
The second image is the first I ever drew of him in September of 2014. As mentioned above, he was originally meant to be brown with light, discolored spots here and there, just like the actual Galerina Marginata mushroom, which is one of the most poisonous mushrooms in the world. But, in the end, I felt that he needed a splash of color, and I am very happy with his current purple-green cap design!
