Ink Drawing Challenge 2021 Day 14: Iggy Koopa

Hey! It’s Iggy Koopa!

Fun fact: All of the Koopalings except for Larry are named after musicians: Ludwig von Beethoven, Wendy O. Williams, Morton Downey Jr., Roy Orbison, Lemmy Kilmister, and Iggy Pop. Allegedly, Larry was named Larry because “he looks like a Larry.”

Anyways, Iggy Koopa here has had the most drastic transformation in his appearance over the years. He originally started short and squat, just like all of his siblings. But as time has gone on, he’s gotten taller and lankier, and his hair style has changed from an electric rainbow mohawk into something resembling a palm tree.

I gave him the spiraled glasses that he sported in the Super Mario World character art, which otherwise looks like his Super Mario Bros. 3 art, above

While I can’t account for the changes in hairstyle, I feel like it’s possible that his newfound lankiness is to better match him up with his namesake, Iggy Pop. But who knows, it could just as likely be so he has a more distinct silhouette from Larry and Lemmy.

I dunno about today’s drawing. But I already completely redrew it once, and I don’t care enough to draw him a third time. Hopefully tomorrow’s will be better.
