Dry Bones - SotD 149

This one was definitely highly requested. It seems like Dry Bones has a much higher fan following than I would have ever imagined. Although he was definitely one of my personal favorites as well, even though he was sometimes irritating to deal with. He may hold the spot of the only skeleton based enemy I actually like in video games.

While I was painting this out my buddy chimed in that maybe I should paint him reforming after he's been struck down by the mighty Mario, but I was far too into it to restart. Sort of regret that, but no one would probably be able to tell who it was if I had. I've been sort of putting this one off for the same reasons that I haven't done more of the koopa variants. Jumping around gives me a better variety and with these ones I feel like I have to keep it more consistent. Although while doing this, for the first time, I had the urge to tackle someone like Bowser even though it would go against the spirit of the series.

I hope everyone is having a great holiday. Happy New Years!

Bowser has to happen... your style would def bring out a more ferocious and terrifying version of what he should prob look like! i think you must do it!
