Hoshi No Kaabii: A Recurring Nightmare #23 by ssbbforeva Hoshi No Kaabii: A Recurring Nightmare #23 by ssbbforeva
finally got this thing out, and still not very happy with it. so many things to explain... lets get started.

first off, i decided to use zero's cloaked design that i made for fun, as her looked rather plain and unimposing without it.

i didnt want just plain black and white chess pieces, so i used bronze and ivory instead. hope you can tell the difference.

I KNOW HE LOOKS AND ACTS LIKE FREAKIN NIGHTMARE. i did that on purpose (well not the looks part). i always liked how nightmare was using a chessboard in ep. 3, but felt they didnt expand enough on it. so i will instead, and i hope i do it well.

its my first try at vague, yet important scenes like this, and i hope it is not as bad as i have a feeling it is.

there is a reason why i have the figure at the end faceless.

ill find some other things to explain, but im to tired at the moment :stare:

I've not posted in a quite a while, I admit.

Considering that Zero and Nightmare are technically the same villain in your story, I think it's nice for you to actually take advantage of the chessboard point.


But most importantly is Zero's humanoid form. Compared to your first designs, which looked extremely goofy, this new form looks MUCH better, looking actually impressive and fitting. I think that keeping Zero's eye hidden was a good decision.


My guess? Zero will do like she (canon is ambiguous, leaning more toward 'she' due to being the Dark Matter Queen) did in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror ; incarnate the lifeless Nightmare/possess him, bringing forth Dark Mind.

well, they arent the same villain, but they are closely related. and nightmare will not be happy when zero "plays his piece"

and thanks, im glad you like his cloaked design :) ill be using it most often, until i get to the battle with him.

ANOTHER. EPIC. PAGE. I get everything, the sibling rivalry and the character at the end, and I love the way this page has been done. Everything is accented by the reddish glow, and someone's brain has just exploded from the epicness!!!

Wow really interesting page. Is actually the dark matter swordmen who is playing the chess??
I see now Forta is one of those characters who save the world and are the only hope for the universe...
Yeah...

that is not the dark mater swordsman, it is in fact my version of zero. [link]
and seeing as how there are hundreds of the good-guy chess pieces laying on the ground, knocked out of the game, all of whom were the hope of the universe, ide say that our current heroes dont have much of chance.

it means that if you have a common enemy who is too great for you to tackle on your own, you team up with whoever is willing to. even if you dont like that person.

It doesn't! Its pure genious! I actually find this comic one of the best I've seen.

I'm reading another comic by a guy name KajuKing, but his comic killed: Tokkori, Coo, Whispy Woods, Dyna Blade, and Kirby's heart. After I found out Dyna Blade was going to be killed, I immediately named your comic my number one kirby fan comic because its hand-drawn and main characters aren't slaughtered like the star warriors.

aw, thanks so much! :happycry:

i tried reading that actually, but the fact he traced all of the scenes and had kirby having a serious relationship with a twelve year old girl turned me away.

and doesnt it take place before hoshi no kaabii ends? so how the heck will he explain all of those deaths?

:iconkirbykips:
KirbyKips Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah, that's actually a good point. He shouldn't kill those people though! The tracings and real-like backgrounds don't compliment it either. I don't like Tiff's relationship with Kirby, but I did put her with a Kirby OC who I think is about her age.
