MOTHER by KurkoBoltsi

The first in the series, also nicknamed as EarthBound Zero.

I could write three pages on how much I love the MOTHER series, but I think I'll spare you from that. Plenty of characters and other stuff that I would of have wanted to add in this, but oh well.

MOTHER by Nintendo and Shigesato Itoi.

whats the series about?
SpiderLondon Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Basically it's about a group of kids(3 groups, 3 games) who, one day after some dramatic exprience, discover that they must save the world from an alien named Giyagas, for the first two games. The third game show another group led by a kid who had his mother die and his brother run away from the family, and they must go search for the brother and find out what is going on at a strange company and who the masked man they keep seeing was. Also, the games are very witty and funny!

This so beautiful... my eyes actually teared up a bit, especially at the bottom. :D

This is so beautiful... Earthbound zero is my favorite of the series.

I just beat Mother 1 at 4 AM this morning, and goodness I loved every moment of it. This is a really awesome piece that represents the entire game wonderfully. I haven't played EarthBound yet (I'm waiting for the VC release of it on the Wii U), but I can't wait to! I really love the coloring of this work. You did a great job!

If they ever make a remake of EB0, this should totally be the box art.
pkstarstorm1up Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013
Amazing job! :D

This would be great as a movie poster. Or a musical poster....
Earthbound the musical. Write that down guys.

I just beat this game for my first time two days ago. I've been waiting to look at this picture but I refused to until I beat the game. Now I have so much love and appreciation for it. Thank you for making this lovely art :heart:
FlowinJazz Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2011
This is fantastic, it really is.

You've managed to sum up a game so well with so little, and you can tell that everything you put in this has a purpose, and isnt just there to be there.

if it wasnt for copyright and such, I would practically beg you to make this a poster sized print.
SergeantMuffins Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2011
I always had a soft spot for the story of the first game. I won't deny that the gameplay itself isn't fairly comparable to the other two, but I honestly think that as limited as it had to be to fit onto the NES, it's a great story, and out of the three, would probably be most suitable for a movie, if there ever was one. This piece demonstrates why perfectly, and I thank you for displaying it in such a manner.
Frozenskin Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011
The gameplay, IMHO, ruins this fantastic game. Without that heavy level grinding and the targetting bug, and with a better graphic, It would be a great game
SergeantMuffins Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011
I myslef usually play the game with the fanmade "Easy" patch on, which doubles the amount of EXP earned from fights and really speeds the game up. The targetting bug was VERY annoying to me, though.
Frozenskin Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011
I used the easy patch too. I tried to play the "normal" game for a while, but I died at every enemy encounter (like Hippies) so I started to use the patch.
The targetting bug was a little depressing, I wouldn't use so many times SuperHealing at Mt. Itoi if it never existed.
SergeantMuffins Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011
Did other RPGs of the time have the same targetting bug, or was it just MOTHER?
Frozenskin Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011
Final Fantasy I have this bug, but I ain't played other RPG for NES and I don't know about the others, but I think in Final Fantasy III was fixed (FF III is of the next year or so)
SergeantMuffins Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011
Fair enough, it makes sense that it had the bug then, if it was a common problem.
kyrielxx Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2011
If it were a movie, this would be it's poster.
xrebal Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Wow...just wow.
FinalGamer Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2011
Beautiful. Just fits everything......also love that little picture at the bottom that makes me weep a little bit.
Frozenskin Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2011
Take a melody, simple as can be, give it some words and sweet harmony~
For some elements, I like most Mother 2, but Mother 1 is still a great game.
For me, It's a little bit melancholic than the second chapter...I haven't finished neither of them...but I feel like this.
Great job, anyway. I faved this...but I like all three (and the other Mother art).
IMHO you caught the spirit.

this makes me want to try those games. such a wonderful work!

Ohgod the scene with Giegue at the bottom made me feel all emotional :ohnoes:
Incredible illustration, this is beyond 'amazing'.
Nessearthbound Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011
Mother 1 doesnt get enough love as the other two. As A matter of fact Mother 2 gets just about all of it. XD But all three of them are pretty much masterpieces :')
GrayFoxNinja Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011
Tbf Mother 3 wasn't released out of Japan and wasn't popular in the West till Lucas came in Brawl, so of course Mother 2 would get more love, even though it may not deserve the most. As for Mother 1, sorry but imo as good as it was the other 2 were FAR better!.
lvl27-Cubone Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2011  Student General Artist
Wow, Giegue in the bottom is crazy. Very cool. I love this series to death as well. Nice work! Mother 3 probably has the best story of any game I've ever played.
CruxianAzelf Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Aw man, these are awesome (and totally came out of nowhere!). I finished EB0 recently, so it's really cool to look through all of this and see what I know. c:
Brendan-Mudk Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Never actually played the game. But this makes me wish I had D: How do you make awesome things like this anyways? Do you have a tablet?
