Tips for Buying EarthBound

June 7th, 2011 | EarthBound, Images

Josh sent this in the other day:

The title of the piece is “Good Friends/Bad Friends”, named after the ending song during the credits. In this piece is every single enemy and boss sprite from the game (not including color palette swaps/clones). Also included is friends/allies, such as the Hint Man, Weapons Dealer, and Apple Kid. Yes, even the white and black sesame seeds. Altogether, there is 142 characters in this piece. Each character, depending on size and complexity, took me from 1-3 hours. I took the utmost caution in paying attention to detail. You see, I wanted this to reflect the way I remembered earthbound as a kid. So I wanted the characters to reflect the game sprites as closely as possible, but have my own little touch of personality and style.

I really like it when people make big collections of characters like this. I bet you could even do a “Where’s Waldo” type game with this pic 😛

Hi all, thank you so much for posting this and your compliments!! Here is a link to my deviant page, with a much higher resolution pic.


Thank you again, I really appreciate the honor!

Darien said on Jun. 7, 2011

Yeah, that’s really nice. Might print that sucker out and hang it on the wall. 🙂

Kyle said on Jun. 7, 2011

I would really love a print of this!

Pablo said on Jun. 7, 2011

Wow! This is surprisingly similar to the fanart I made, only this one is way more complete! It’s great!
Even the title is pretty much the same, haha.

Hey Viking!

I love your work. I went to reply just to see if there was a higher resolution picture and you already posted it! Thanks so much for my new wall paper!

I can’t find the sesame seeds anywhere!

KyleRXZero said on Jun. 7, 2011

What about Mr. T? Is he included? It’s fine if he isn’t, but I gotta know. I can’t find him anywhere.

Leirin said on Jun. 7, 2011

Great fanart. Can’t imagine how long it must’ve taken!

KyleRXZero said on Jun. 7, 2011

I think I found the black sesame seed. 🙂

TheLHP said on Jun. 7, 2011

wow this is truly amazing..i wonder how much it would be to have this printed?

Viking011 said on Jun. 7, 2011

@Angryeyebrows17: Black sesame seed is near the Loaded Dice’s foot; white sesame seed is near the Zombie Dog’s back leg 🙂
@TheLHP: I have only made 1 print so far – for my younger brother for his birthday. With printing and framing, it costed around $35. I wasnt %100 satisfied with the quality though (the lady at Kinko’s wasnt very helpful…). I still plan to make a print for myself one of these days!
@KyleRXZero: Unfortunately, Mr. T is not included 🙁 sorry.

Thank you so much, everyone, for your compliments! It was a labor of love, so it means a lot! I think I want to do a very similar style poster of Mother 3, next.
Also, feel free to check out my current project on my deviant page – a full size wall poster of every single pokemon.

@Pablo: I LOVE it! Great minds think alike! Plus, Good Friends/Bad Friends is probably the greatest EB song, ever. How can you not be inspired by it!? 🙂

Rafael R120 said on Jun. 8, 2011

Woah, you deserve a Gutsy Bat for this one, Josh! XD

Jungyin said on Jun. 8, 2011

I thought the song played during the credits was called “Smiles and Tears”?

santiagoff said on Jun. 8, 2011

Excuse my ignorance, but what does “Good Friends, Bad Friends” have to do with “Smiles and Tears”? o.o

Viking011 said on Jun. 8, 2011

“Smiles and Tears” plays during the credits. “Good Friends/Bad Friends” plays right before the end credits, when it highlights all the cast and characters. So it is fitting for this piece.

Definitely an awesome piece! Kudos!

Nesskid said on Jun. 9, 2011

I don’t see the atomic/nuclear powered robot.

Carl said on Jun. 9, 2011

He’s at the bottom, about a quarter of the picture’s width from the right-hand side, between Pokey & the Octobot.

ben said on Jun. 11, 2011

@Pablo who’s that guy in the glasses between Ness’ mom and Andonuts supposed to be?

Sillik said on Jun. 11, 2011

I think that’s Itoi 😛
