I don’t quite remember where this was exactly, but it was somewhere in norther Florida on the way up back home. Dad had stopped for food and bathroom, and while I was waiting saw these ancient things. Pictures had to be had as I was surprised to just see something so old still being used there normally, everyday. I still had my Gamecube but everyone keeps jumping over them like some retro Hot Pocket.
A little while back, someone I knew on deviantART was having hardware problems. They were getting quite behind on requests and even their personal work, and it was coming to a complete standstill. All because a mouse on their PC wasn’t working.
Since my parents had come back from their store, they had a ton of computer stuff sitting around, including obsolete desktops. I took a spare PS/2 mouse lying around at the time, mailing it across the country to them. Long story short, they were extremely grateful and were able to resume work once again.
In return, they drew Princess Kida, together with Raine Sage and Twilight Princess Zelda. The joke is that Kida lost some sort of bet, and such she has to take on a “kawaii” persona, outfit included. They drummed up the last part but I really enjoyed it.
This is the first time I got thank-you art for anything I had done online, so it was quite thrilling to know I was able to help someone out! You can check out the artist here.
