Marker Art #37: Lolo and Lala

Adventures of Lolo 3 came out in 1990 for the Famicom and joined us in the United States the following year on the Nintendo Entertainment System. While the prior two games were excellent in their own right, the third entry broke the formulaic feel by adding a colorful world map to navigate along with the ability to switch between our two main heroes: Lolo and Princess Lala.

If you never played the Lolo games, you might remember seeing similar looking characters in Kirby’s Dream Land for the Game Boy in 1992. They appeared as the second stage bosses going by the names Lololo and Lalala (not to be confused with this iconic song by The Police).

One of my first ever experiences with the NES involved playing the original Lolo game, so my nostalgia for these characters runs deep. I decided it would be fitting to memorialize these memories by creating a bit of pixel art from the Lolo 3 end credits. Enjoy!

After creating my template, I started with the black outline and filled in the character colors.
I outlined all the light green blocks and then colored in the shades for the tree branch.
For the background, I started with the pink flower centers and then worked my way around with the light green leaving white spaces for the petals. I love the result!
