30 Day Kirby Challenge - 19 - Yarn Dolphin by CelestiaDragonKnight 30 Day Kirby Challenge - 19 - Yarn Dolphin by CelestiaDragonKnight
Day 19 - Yarn Ability

The dolphin, aka the best transformation I've ever seen, is, as I've just said, the best transformation ever. Not only do I LOVE the water levels in Epic Yarn, but this transformation's movements are so smooth and fun and elegant and MAN I just love it. My second favourite is the penguin one, it's so fun. Man, that GAME is just so much fun! xD

I definitely had fun making this one! I tried to mimic some sort of fabric/patch/yarn texture on the waves and making the little stitches and the little details was really fun. Something simple for a simple game! ^_^

Hope you like it!

I love the yarn effects that you did on this. :) Kirby's Epic Yarn had some great transforms, my most favorite one was the UFO but I despised that darn train.

Another thing I love about Kirby's Epic Yarn is the Waddle Dees and that squeaky duck noise they make when either they fall on their face or Kirby/Prince Fluff bumps into them from behind. :meow:

OH MAN that squeaky noise gets me every time xD I just love to run up to the Dees and push them around, it's a guaranteed smile xD
I liked the UFO too, but it's controls were pretty hard to grasp because it just floats and drifts around when you go in a direction. xD Let's not even mention the train x)

Indeed it is, I feel bad for pushing them but that squeaky noise is too cute to pass up. :XD:

True and yes, cause the train stinks. :lol:

Definitely one of the best underwater controls around. The game had some pretty fun transformations in general (except for the train. No one likes that one xD) and the dolphin was definitely my absolute favorite.
I do like the fabric effect you were aiming for with this one. It works pretty well with how you used different hues to create this kinda "fluffy" look. Would also be cool to visualize different materials through the coloring (i.e. like felt, silk or denim). But that would be pretty complacted actually, so ignore that I said that XD Also, maybe the stitches would pop out more if you used a different color for them? Here they sadly just face in with the lineart.

(Yeah, no one likes the train xD)
There are definitely a lot of things I could have done to make it look more fluffy or textured, and you're totally right about the stitches, I hadn't thought of that. x) It's the kind of things I could've worked on a lot more if I didn't just have a few hours per day to make these drawings. xD

(Clunky controlls, slow as molasses, and you need to keep pointing at the TV. Yeah sounds like "fun" XD)
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing too while I was writing my comment. Sadly the challenge doesn't leave a big room for more complicated things, so some aspects simply have to suffer. It's still admirable that you're able to pull this through though. I wouldn't be able to do this at all, so kudos to you!

This is so detailed! It's the best. OoO The water is so cool and Kirby looks so happy sitting in that dolphin! :happybounce: 

Epic Yarn has to be my favourite Kirby game that wasn't made by Hal. The music was the main thing that always got me. I think Lava Landing is my favourite song from the game, especially when it hits the one minute mark. It makes me want to just twirl around the room with someone.

Thanks! :D
Man, I love Lava Landing, it's the perfect mood for the kind of level it's in. My favourite track from Epic Yarn has to be Dark Manor though, it's just so great (the level's awesome too!)

Ah, Epic Yarn. I love that game. And of course dolphin is the best. As you said, it's very smooth and the water levels are just so good. How could anyone in the Kirby fandom not like this game?

I love the stitch effects on the wave. Makes it look like it came from the actual game.

I heard a lot of people didn't really like the game when it came out, but I feel now that the game is older the people that actually love the game are coming out more. xD
