Hyper Play Nov13 - Super Priestess Pumpkin! by Hyper-Wil Hyper Play Nov13 - Super Priestess Pumpkin! by Hyper-Wil
In another life I used to do the odd cover for video games magazines so while I was trying to think up reasons to draw Nintendo characters (do I really need a reason?) I thought I'd do my own cover, for a made-up magazine using made-up games. What better way to start things off with a Halloween-themed issue. Gonna try and do a different one each month. So many characters to make up games for :)

big super play fan here, and like many, it was specifically your covers and Helen's writing that got me into drawing anime/manga. I've neglected it for a good few years and just felt the pull to get back into it after finding an old super play mag [the one with the chun-li cover!] in some dusty boxes a couple weeks back. so glad to see you're still turning out covers, whether they're for real mags or not!

Thanks so much Ben :) Not sure I'm really turning them out as quickly as I should be, though. There's nothing like a mag deadline to get you generating more silly pictures!

If Super Play ever came back, with a fresh Wil Overton cover every month, I'd pay 10 an issue :D

I cried on the inside when I saw this.  That magazine and its propensity for pretty pictures is probably the reason I even have a deviantart account now.

If that mag got you into drawing then I consider that a big success. Consider yourself watched! :)

You're too kind. I was a Sega and a Nintendo fanboy (still am) but you couldn't be both in those days. Could you?

I couldn't,i was religiously behind Sega.Any good things  said of
Nintendo always fell on deaf ears.Bizarrely,hearing the news that Sega were
to discontinue the Dreamcast is what broke the spell,i immediately went out and bought
an N64.:D
I don't we'll ever see a rivalry like that in gaming again!;)

I'm sorry :( Apparently people don't buy video game mags anymore.

Well this is all-round wonderful. A gorgeous tribute to a certain wonderful magazine no longer with us.

Do I get bonus points for recognising Doshin the giant? =D

Why not make your own little magazine? Just 10 pages in length. Sell it digitally :)
