Marker Art #32: I Am Error

If you’ve played the NES sequel Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (1987), then it’s very likely you’ve run across this guy. Calling himself “Error,” his Japanese name is the symbol for “Bagu.” In English, this means “a computer bug.” So, it’s very likely that the localization of Zelda II resulted in this translation error – which probably originated as an amusing little joke for the developers.

Do you remember Error?? Here’s a bit of pixel art I created for the character and a few of my steps along the way.


I knew if I nailed the black background, everything else would fall into place easily.
I found exactly the right colors I needed for the floor, wall, and window.
My only purple marker is a little darker than I’d like, but it does the trick – especially when applying a photo filter that brings out its hue. Very happy to add this to my art collection!
