Samus and the Metroid Busters by Hyper-Wil
Samus and the Metroid Busters
Metroid via Hanna-Barbera and viewed in the back of an old comic. You just know they would have changed a load of stuff and added a kid :)

Whoa, THE Wil Overton on DeviantArt - nice!! I've always loved your work ever since N64 Magazine. Never knew you were the creator of that Hannah-Barbera style Samus artwork too. You're just a big bundle of groovy!

Hope you're taking good care of Worldly Bloke too...

Thanks :) I like me some groovy. Yes, Worldy Bloke is doing fine in the home for lost magazine mascots. Well, as long as he takes his meds.

Make sure he takes good care of your mahjong sets! :D

Hey dude, I love your art style. I didn‘t collect NGamer as frequently but man was I surprised to know that the guy who drew that Samus and the Metroid Busters picture was actually an illustrator for the NGamer. I even saw your illustration for the final volume and I honestly must say you have quite a grip on capturing the style of the characters. I think in all honesty, your style is interesting and I like what I see in your gallery, too.

Keep it up, man.

Hey! Sorry for the late replay. Back to full-time work and all my free time seems to have disappeared! Who'd have thought it?

Thanks so much for the kind words. I can't deny that I like to draw the Nintendo characters but it's nice if I can put a little spin on them sometimes :) Some I can do better than others but I'll keep trying :)

Honestly having your own little spin on them is pretty fun. It's just that you have to find a way to make it work and I think you do that quite well.

I'm sure you must get this a lot (...I'd hope you get this a lot!) but N64 Magazine was a huge part of my childhood and naturally your art and mascot characters created for it (and NGC) were a huge part of that whole experience so just wanted to say how super cool it is to rediscover your art here (and what you've been up to since)!
