New Paper Mario: Fishmael by Nelde New Paper Mario: Fishmael by Nelde
Fishmael
in New Paper Mario style.

He's a fishing buddy of Goombas and can be seen fishing at the port of Toad Town.

I wanted to change his appearance because I didn't like that fish thing and made him a Pianta because their builds are really similar to each other. If you imagine the lower lip gone, the resemblance is quite intriguing. Maybe he was some kind of prototype for the Piantas.

Edit: I changed his appearance thanks to some suggestions I recieved in the comments.



Also have a look at the rest of my New Paper Mario gallery.

I remember him! It took me forever to find the whale. I thought it was the fish. I went a little farther and there was the freaking whale.

Hmmm, I don't think a pianta is very fitting for him as it just doesn't feel right looking at him revamped as a different species. However, you did a great job here!

And I've heard the opposite, so in the end, it's my call and I like the new look :D

Ah, OK! It is your own idea after all, and you can't please everybody, so that's a good point. I still love the way you drew him. Do you use Illustrator?

I can appreciate your creativity and how well-done this artwork is, however I sincerely think you should have kept him the same. The Pianta design is extremely unfitting.

The name is the biggest problem. Piantas are not fish. Fishmael not only fishes, but is a "fish".
It's also very bland to have a generic blue Pianta with a fishing pole. Fishmael is much more interesting and humorous.

You don't have to be a fish to be called Fishmael ;)
Oh, and he isn't a generic blue Pianta anymore.

Yellow. I meant Yellow. I don't know my colors dsgjklfd;
While you're right, the pun is directed at the fact that he's a fish-thing.

Well, you could always play the original game with the old textures. Or if you want prettier textures, you could play Paper Mario an the Thousand Year Door or Super Paper Mario.
The only things you have to wait for are my New Paper Mario texture pack and Paper Mario 3DS.

Why do you need to play it so badly right now?

Aw... this guy was one of my favourites because he's was so weird.

Hey are you going to keep that hairy bush hobo guy who tells you not to go to Forever Forest or are you changing him? Because he was my other favourite unique character.

I haven't decided yet what to do with Oaklie...
I thought about Whittles: [link]

Nah whittles are really lame and I didn't feel they added much to Galaxy. If possible I think you should leave Oaklie as he is. Because he was all creepy and mysterious like the forest he protected.

Very nice idea,
It's a creative way to include Pianta to an old Paper Mario game, well done.
Maybe adding the cap could reminds gamers the original character! (=
