The Pac is Back by dynamicsketch The Pac is Back by dynamicsketch
In commemoration of Pac-man being announced as part of the Super Smash Bros. roster. When I was about the age of 4 or 5, my parents took up bowling in a league. The bowling alley was where I had discovered arcade cabinets. The one that caught my eye was Pac-man. They even had one of those table top arcade machines in the cafeteria. After playing it, I fell in love with the game even if I was not very good at it. Back then, I was wanting to draw and I would tend to draw Pac-man and the ghosts. Sometimes with just crayons. Good times.

After so many years this would make my first attempt at drawing Pac-man since I was little. I wanted to give him that retro shading that I enjoy from retro games like Super Mario.

Tools used:

Mechanical pencil, paper, a pepper shaker (improvising to draw the perfect circle for Pac-man's body), and cleaned up in Photoshop.

I can't wait! I just hope he won't be too difficult to unlock.

I love the fact that Nintendo used the arcade cabinet design for Pac-man in his appearance for Smash Bros. not only does this give it a more of a 'throwback' vibe, but in your style it makes the throwback look of Pac-man more fun to not only see it on screen. But wanting to see it in motion. plus I've always enjoyed looking at this design of Pac-man.

In Pac-Man's own words "I look fantastic!"

yay!!!! Yeah I always was pretty sure he'd be in, but it was a very nice reveal! Should all make for many good times! Also, awesome with that retro old timey shading. I love it. I think Sonic the Hedgehog still uses is something similar!

Something like that. I know that it had been used in Super Mario 3D Land.

Despite looking at color references, I hadn't noticed. I was worried about getting the right shade of yellow and the colors for the inside of his mouth. I think he looks better now.
