This is my second attempt at making a drawing based upon an old cabinet video game. I chose to do Dig Dug as it is similar, yet inferior to Mr. Do! in many ways.
There weren’t as many elements to include to ensure I encapsulated this game as there were for Mr. Do! I needed to make sure I had the main character, a Fygar, a Pooka and a flower, the pump and it needed to be set underground.
I based the characters off of their original, 8-bit appearance. Dig Dug always looked a little schlubby to me, and I was never sure if his skin was blue and he had short sleeves on his suit, or if he had a blue visor and blue sleeves & gloves on his suit, so I tried to make that happen here.
