Yoshi’s New Island Art Makes Us All Warm And Fuzzy Inside


This month’s Nintendo Miiverse Art Academy contest featured Yoshi’s New Island. And man, are these things cute. Like, really cute. Sitting in on the judging panel was Tezuka Takashi, whose choice of winners leaves us feeling really warm and fuzzy. That picture of poor Yoshi in the pot trying to keep Mario out! TOO CUTE!!!!


As in past contests, these illustrations were all done using Art Academy: Sketchpad on the Wii U by the by, showing how versatile that piece of software is.
