Ink Drawing Challenge 2021 Day 13: Lakitu & Spiny

I drew this right after dinner last night, and then just kinda kept doodling until I was too tired to scan and upload this, so here it is the next morning.

It’s kind of easy to take it for granted because he’s been a character for over 30 years, but Lakitu is one of the weirder enemies, I think, in the Super Mario Bros. series. Think about it: he’s a turtle, wearing oversized glasses, that floats on a cloud, and he throws spiked eggs at you. And when those eggs hit the ground, the immediately hatch into angry red turtles with spiked shells called Spiny.

Truly bizarre.

Come back later today so I can hopefully get back on track with this year’s ink drawing challenge!
