More pottery! This time, a box I labored over for some time, with each side being a different kind of Mario block. Yes, you may notice some innacuracies, but I have a terrible photographic memory and that's what I went off of. However, I think the glowing side turned out excellent...

Actually, I didn't notice any inaccuracies.  Maybe I'm just ignorant too, but... in any case, nice work.

Good work. I didn't spot any glaring inaccuracies. I think the SMB side should be more orange, but that's just my OCD talking..

So what do the top and bottom sides look like? Have you/are you going to decorate them? My suggestion for the underside would be a dark blue colored ?-block (as seen in SMB, New SMB, and New SMBW), and the top side be either a dice block (to represent the Mario Party series) or just leave it alone (so you can tell which way is up on the awesome box).

The only discrepancy I can pinpoint is that the bricks should be rectangular, not square. But still, that box is so awesome that it probably contains the cure for cancer.

I think the exclamation point should be white, but yeah, that's pretty sweet. I don't know why it never occurred to me to make Mario stuff in my 8th grade pottery class.

A clay tsuchinoko!

I'm sorry, a clay what?

A tsuchinoko is a mythical snake. You can find one in Metal Gear Solid 3 if you meet certain conditions.

You can also find one in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow. Equipping its soul makes store items cost less.

Funnily enough, both of these are Konami games...

So what's the difference between a tsuchinoko and a normal snake, then?

It's proportionally wider and doesn't actually exist, for starters.

I thought the difference was they were pretty stubby and had an almost triangular body--along with myriad mystical properties, of course.

Well, the art does look triangular... but I doubt it's magical, to be honest.

On the contrary, they're every bit as magical (and fictional) as tanukis and kappas. According to Google Images, they are indeed depicted as being "stubby", but not very often triangular.

I don't recall kappas being magical, although they are indeed mythical.
