Mario vs. Tarma Roving

I’ve been working on and off on this for a couple of weeks at least so I’m glad to finally be done with it. It’s not that there was anything particularly difficult here but it was a lot of work and, even though I basically traced a screenshot for the background, it took a while. Didn’t help that I was detailing the background heavily for a while there when most of it would get lost anyway.

But yeah, Metal Slug. Some of the best sprite animation out there even to this day. Always a blast to play. As I was drawing this I toyed with the idea of how I would handle the rest of the characters and, let me tell you, I’m looking forward to tackling those.
