This is a belated Valentines Day art piece I decided to draw, after seeing some recent Pepe Le Pew art, and Super Mario Sunshine being on my mind again. I know it's a completely random crossover, but seemed right for the holiday!
Basic story, is that the Magic Paintbrush falls into the hands of Pepe Le Pew next. With the power in his hands, and after getting a bit messy with the paintbrush himself, he decides to work towards the betterment of man/fur kind. In order to help others in finding true love, he uses the paintbrush to imbue willing subjects with his essence, gifting them with Pepes charm, suave, and even Pepes skunkish anatomy and good looks as an added bonus. The process can be either quick, taking a swim in Pepes paint pool, the paint seeping into the subjects mind and body, molding and reshaping them until the desired transformation is completed. Afterwards, any further exposure to the same paint will cause it to stick, but can be wiped off, if needed. The second option is slower, but also a good choice, to receive a more personal touch, letting Pepe use his brush to paint the sources body, one limb at a time, until the magic paint reconfigures the subject into Pepes image. Post-tf, all those affected will gain all skunk-related abilities, including the option to use their scent as a weapon. As well, Pepes essence will have also imprint some of his influence onto the subjects mind. The subjects will still retain their sense of self, their memories, and personality post tf, though they will slightly compelled to exude the Pepe-equivalent of charm and suave, along with the ability to speak perfect French when required. The downside is that they will also be imbued with pepes lack of inhibition when pursuing the maiden ( or man, whichever is prefered) of their dreams, as well. Depending, this could be a positive or a negative, all depending on the personality of whomever the target paramour is. With restraint, the subjects can hold back any new aspects in their personality, if desired. Any underage transformations however, will rather than imparting an aggressive intensity for romantic love, will instill a familial bond of love towards their other skunk family members, one which the older members will also feel as well. Once the younger skunks reach the age of maturity, they will develop their older siblings zeal for romantic love, also. Post-tf, as well, the eye colors of the subjects will carry over from their old form as well, and though most clothing and articles will be dissolved in the paint, a few of them may carry over as well ( evidenced from the glasses, scarf and necklace on the 2 post-tf subjects.)
The picture here shows Pepe with his 2 newest skunk converts, Nuffie and Shinytotodude, relaxing in the pool with a few Swoopin' Stus accompanying them and watching, while Pepe eagerly and delicately finishes sculpting Agent into his 3rd masterpiece. Also, Penelope Pussycat watches and realizes if Pepe imprints 100 or so subjects with his mindset, the # of Pepe-like skunks romping about could possibly be fatal for her. u.u
Drawn with Copic Multiliners and pencil, and drawn with copic sketch markers and light photoshop editing, and sunk over 6-8+ hours, but was worth it for the final result. Hope it looks decent. Comments are always welcome! ^.^
