Kirby's 20th Anniversary by Torkirby Kirby's 20th Anniversary by Torkirby
Buy this as a print here!

Happy 20th, Kirby! I felt the need to commemorate the event through a giant mural composed of the 12 main games in the series. I had this planned out for quite some time and it's exciting to see it finally finished. C:

Hoo, jeeze! Kirby's Dream Land, Kirby's Adventure, Kirby's Dream Land 2, Kirby Super Star, Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby 64 The Crystal Shards, Kirby and the Amazing Mirror, Kirby Canvas Curse, Kirby Squeak Squad, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Kirby Mass Attack, and Kirby's Return to Dream Land!

Be sure to click download image to see the many details!

I would've totally included the spin-off games, but all of this was overwhelming enough for me to handle! I dunno how I managed to get this whole thing, including the video that goes along with it, done within the two weeks I spent working on it!

So, happy Kirby day, everyone c: I dunno about you, but I'm really excited for the classic Kirby collection Wii disc and the "other activities" planned coming soon!

You can watch the process of how I made this picture here!

Update (9/1/12):
Holy moly, a Daily Deviation?! This is so incredible! I could not be any more happy seeing that. :love: However, I'm actually adding on to this picture! Characters I neglected to include, filler space, and whatnot. Please check back sometime within the next week or so!
Again, I feel so honored given this milestone. Thank you so much, everyone. ^^

Update (9/16/12):
I haffta say, Kirby's Dream Collection came out today and it is absolutely BRILLIANT! :love: It's pretty much every single fan of Kirby's dream come true! Six classic Kirby titles, extremely difficult new Challenge Stages, a fantastic music CD, and a history booklet that reveals concept sketches and EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS GAME IS THE BEST EVER. :love: I really love how Magolor is a friend now, too C:

Anyways, this mural has received an upgrade! I added additional characters, items, and generally cleaned it up to make it look a lot nicer. C: There are too many additions to put in a list here on DeviantArt, but I'll be making a video detailing what's new in the near future.

Thank you so much, Kirby, for staying with me throughout my entire life. You helped make me the person I am today and I couldn't ask for it any better. C: Happy 20th anniversary!

Now. First off let me say that this drawing is just simply awesome, and that's an understatement. I'm very jealous of your awesome art skills, i would NEVER be able to pull of a drawing like this one.I really like this drawing, and i'm SUPER EXTREMLY impressed by it. Some of the things even made me laugh (Espicially the Kirby's return to dreamland one") I really liked the speedpaint too. I can easily tell you worked very hard on this, you should be proud (i know i would be). Everything looks just pure awesome. I also love the freaking out Bio-Spark at the bottom :XD: 02 looks so awesome.

So yea.....this drawing is very awesome.

I can say that this is, without doubt, your crowning achievement as an artist. This masterpiece pretty much sums up the whole Kirby series for everyone. My favorite part of this is how each "game" varies. Some are more happy and easy going, while some seem more serious. Some look pretty hectic, while others are just plain silly and light hearted. It all meshes together so beautifully, that I don't really see anything wrong with this picture. So congratulations! this picture rocks and you rock. You have done an astounding job with this picture. I can bet this'll be pretty hard to top, huh? Shows that you'll just have to work that much harder!

Kirby's anniversary is 4 days after my b-day. I'm combining my birthday party with an anniversary party for Kirby! We're even going to try to do our own Gourmet Race!
