I’m back again with more awesome Nintendo fan art to share with everyone. This time around our featured artist is Amanda aka ‘Manderz’ (@Nrrrd_Grrrl_). She not only games on her WiiU but also uses it to create really cool character artwork. With a wide variety of different TV/video game references there’s surely something that will appeal to everyone, enjoy!


KD: What program do you use on the WiiU to create your artwork?

M: I use “art academy” sketch pad.

“Gotta Jet!”

KD: How long does it take you on average to finish one of your drawings?

M: Oh man, on a good day I can pump out between two to three drawings a day. The more detailed I get I’d say it takes me about three to four hours maybe longer



KD: While browsing through some of your pics I noticed a wide variety of different video game and TV show references, are these your main forms of inspiration or do you paint other things?

M: YES! I am a huge retro Nickelodeon fan. Joe Murray the creator of “Rocko’s Modern Life” really inspires me a lot. As for Nintendo, it’s always had a positive feel for me growing up, I cant say there’s one game I didn’t like.


“A Ripping Good Time”

KD: What TV show or video game do you use for reference the most, and what character do you enjoy drawing the most?

M: Rocko’s Modern Life for sure, I like drawing video game characters that people know, but kinda forget about. They need some love too :D



“Happy New Years! From Me To You”

KD: Do you post these on Miiverse? Could we share your Nintendo network ID so our readers can check out more of your artwork?

M: I sure do!  My NNID: ManderZByteZ Feel free to stop by and say hi!! I post pretty much daily! :D



KD: Are there any other websites where we can see more WiiU drawings or other things you’ve done?

M: I put my WiiU work everywhere really, but you can find the first WiiU drawings I ever did, to the current ones on my tumblr which is : http://8bitbiscuitz.tumblr.com/Wii%20U%20ART
