Danger Below by sketchris Danger Below by sketchris
After buying Homestuck Soundtrack Volume 9, I decided to listen to each track more thoroughly than I previously had. But as I did with my sister sitting next to me, we heard this track. And the beginning had such a familiar composition.... And in the end, basically we both thought this was the Feather Keeper soundtrack at first.

AND THE NOSTALGIA HIT ME LIKE A TRUCK LOADED WITH HORSES MADE OF TITANIUM.

This game, I was obsessed with it in elementary school. And it was the seedling of my art life. I actually really got more serious about art in 7th grade, but I started out with doodles of the Feather Keeper monsters in a small notepad.

~~~~~
Feather Keeper is a plat-former computer game in which the little blue guy you see up there is a feather farmer. He raises feather-covered monsters and harvests their feathers for the angels so they may have wings, but then a giant monster called The Slask takes his feather creatures. Feather Keeper [or Blueman] is left to follow them into the portal and save what belongs to him.

Now if you want to play, here is the original [link]

BUT I've heard many reports that this game is out-of-comission for some reason or rusn too slow and doesn't even load all the way. This applied to myself included.

BUT LOW AND BEHOLD, I hath found the original demo version on its original site. Plays all the way through, not any different from the link above other than it's in its old name "The BlueMan."

This particular picture is based on level 2-3, so keep that in mind C:

Feather Keeper/Blue Man belongs to Emil Norrman and Tomas Unosson and the weird production that made it (C) <---cheap copyright sign

Art belongs to me.

[I can't even with him not having pants. I'm not sure why this is. I've drawn PLENTY of creatures naked before. Humanoids. No genitalia like this one. But still I just get this eeerrrieeeeee feeling whenever I look at his crotch. Shorts maybe?]

If you read this entire description I'll give you a cookie.
