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

Kooper is the second partner to join Mario on his quest to save the Princess.
This young Koopa lives in Koopa Village and needs Mario's help to get back his shell that Fuzzies stole.
Kooper seems to have a a friendly rivalry with Goombario.

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

Kooper's band aid is on his left cheek,Koopas has only 4 fingers,and you should have put his leg,his pose is weird...
I'm just disapointed that the only character to be screwed in my opinion is my fav...

Due to the sprite limitations, Kooper can have either no band aids or band aids on both sides. I chose to give him band aids on both sides.
Koopas sometimes have 5 fingers, sometimes 4.

you mean the unused sprites from TTYD? the game that's the sequel? he didn't have the bandages in Paper Mario, which means he didn't have them yet

Yep. They probably didn't include it in the game because he only has it on one side of his head.

Hey, the sprite is nice, but there's one thing I kind of have to critique - in the original game, Kooper's mouth was a bit higher than those of other koopas, and he seemed to have kind of a longer face than them. This new sprite is great, but it doesn't preserve his facial structure.

Thanks, I based his appearance on the way he was portrayed in PM:TTYD, I guess they used a more generic look there.

Ah, I see. They had sprite data for him in that game? Wish I could've seen his cameo. I know Lakilester had sprite data.

Yeah, all the original partners had new sprites in the game, but only Lady Bow made it into the final cut.

Sorry to butt in, but actually, Parakarry made it to the final cut of TTYD. The beginning he delivers a letter to Mario. Its a short cameo, but at least he isn't trapped in the game's sprite data and unused.

Anyway, great series of pictures here, you did a good job! :D

KOOPER!!! MY FAVORITE PARTNER ALONG WITH BOMBETTE!!! xD This makes me so happy! Although a bit sad at the same time 'cause I can't find one of the chords to hook up my N64. And I've been wanting to play this game for ALMOST THREE YEARS.

Mainly the way he looks, kind of like a fighter and nothing like the regular koopas *nod* He looks like a koopa that will not let anyone jump on top of him xD

Interesting choice of pose. Anyway, as always, very nicely done. Excuse me for nitpicking you on this, but you need (normally I wouldn't say need, however in this case it really is necessary) to fix his fingers. Koopas only have four fingers on each hand, not five, and the fingers are thicker. (Normally I'd also say that the fingers should be pointed, but for some reason Koopas always have rounded fingers in Paper Mario...)

About the fingers: I used mainly Koops' appearance in Paper Mario TTYD for Kooper. For whatever reason, the number of fingers changed depending on the texture used. I then decided to use 5 fingers everywhere.
However, I don't really see why it's "really necessary" to give them 4 fingers instead of 5.

That was Koopa, and Kops only. The NPC Koopas in TTYD have four finers; it seems that the creator of Kops' graphics was fond of genetic mutations.
Then there's SPM, where all Koopas featured in the game had four fingers. Also, in every other non-Paper Mario game, Koopas have four fingers. It's just how Koopa anatomy works.

tl;dr Koops is weird. Don't ref him for Koopa anatomy.

Nelde Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011  Professional General Artist
Ok, I'll change it.
You're lucky that Kooper is the only Koopa that I animated so far. Otherwise it would've been too much work for a considerably small detail (that nobody would realize besided you, anyways ;) )

Yes, I added his band-aid, but now he has it on both sides of his face... there's nothing I can do about that. But I like it better that way than without one, gives him more character.
