Could use a little polishing, but I like it.

Looks good! Just needs some anti-aliasing.

I don't know what that means.

Anti-aliasing is when you reduce jagged edges - in this case, the outside of the badge is fairly jagged-looking, which keeps distracting me from enjoying the rest (which is pretty awesome!).

The other thing that's distracting me is, the yellow of the badge background is just slightly off from the yellow used in the text/star. If I were to think about this as like, being a real, printed badge, you'd be re-using the same yellow.

I definitely like the ones where the text is all the same color over the multicolored text versions.

Also, ideas/questions:
How would it look if you put the characters over everything, including the text? Or if you shrunk them to fit inside the star. I don't know if that'd be better or worse, but it'd be interesting to see.

Last tidbit - what would it look like if the text had a black outline? Again, running with the real badge idea - I think that's how it would appear on a read badge, but maybe not, I'm not sure.

On the whole, I like it!

^Exactly what he said, actually.

I was trying to think of a way to explain why it looks a little off to me, and he totally explained it flawlessly.

But, I really like the idea. If it was actually a badge, I'd totally want one to sew onto a backpack or something, haha.

I still can't figure out how to smooth the borders.

Did you make that badge background, or is that sourced from something else?

One super-easy way is to just do everything at a higher resolution (like 3000x3000 or something), then scale-down for the final web-ready copy.

EDIT:
Also - I definitely prefer how this looks, with the Goomba inside the star and not covering text. This looks awesome!

Oh, ha! I hadn't even noticed it was the same backgound image.

Yeah, the reason it looks rough is because it was so low-res then blown up, and there isn't much you can do to fix it. Maybe you could just try drawing your own background image?

Also, that Lakitu one looks great!

I painted something for Snifit's birthday. Sadly, it will arrive today, instead of yesterday, but I really want to share this now. It might be the best painting I've done so far. I'll pull off the spoiler tag once David confirms that he got the package. No one ruin it before that.

New painting! I'm really pleased with myself on this one.

This one is 16x20, btw. Almost all my others are 8x10.

I like it! That would look great in the nursery (once I get it ready).

Yeah, I liked doing that one. Really primary-colory and simple.

Here's a work-in-progress for my next one. I'm going to bed.

How can one commission you for some work? Including painted copies of the Bowser patrol?

These all look awesome.

I dunno, make a request, I'll paint it, and if you like it, I could just give it to you. That's what I've given snifit for birthdays and christmas for like, 2 years now. I just like painting stuff. As for the Bowser Patrol stuff, I'm not sure if I want to paint those, since I kinda suck at lettering.
