Ice Climber by ATLbladerunner Ice Climber by ATLbladerunner
Another video game character portrait! This here is my version of Popo from Ice Climber. Some of you youngsters may know this one from one of the Smash Bros. games, But he was initially in the old school game Ice Climber! here's the wiki page about it - [link]

8" x 8" acrylic on canvas

By that, I mean Popo is probably closer to his original 1985 conception than the modern day renderings of him in the Smash bros. games.

Indeed, you are correct! I was looking for older 8 or 16 bit games from the 80s for this series. ;)

This is probably closer in spirit to the NES Ice Climber than the Smash Bros. games.

Ok, I laughed at this because of the seal bg. And I got to thinking about that controversy a while back dealing with clubbing baby seals, and I STILL giggled. What the hell is my problem?! :slow:

The texture on this, oh boy. Fun stuff! Especially just from the canvas alone. Smexy!

Hmm you gotta point there. He probably got that wooden mallet to defend himself from gangster polar bears wearing sunglasses and pink shorts.

Never played Ice Climber eh? It was one of those I played just a few times in my youth, but the character kinda fit in with the rest of the ones I was doing. ;)

Are these all for some exhibition? The wood on his mallet looks great.

Yeah, they're all for the 3rd annual Cartoon madness show at the gallery I show at here in Atlanta. The owner's pushing a toyland sub-theme this year so I did videogames. I think the wooden mallet may be my favorite part of all four of these!
