I honestly got bored playing Yoshi’s Island

A note about the outlines: I start with a straight outline. You could skip the single width outline if you’re in a program like Photoshop and can set your line width to 2. I use the same outline color (which is black) for shadows. You can see almost half of the cactus is covered in shadow. So after I make a nice and straight 2 width outline, I vary it a bit. I don’t go crazy with the pencil tool. But every few pixels, I’ll just add on to the outline and make it 3 width.  You’ll really want high contrasts for this one. For this style, diagonal lines are good for the highlights.

The result.
