No Crying Until the End by Kyomu No Crying Until the End by Kyomu
Done during July 2009. Alas I ran out of time, stamina, and brain power at the end (poor Ness, you'll never forgive me will you?) but nevertheless July 27th reared its head and whether I felt satisfied with it or not (the later was certainly the case), that day was the 20th anniversary of Mother.

Originally, I only posted this on Pixiv. I thought I would go back and fix up stuff, but no time.

I also sent this off to Itoi, expressing my gratitude for such a simple, yet heart rending story that made me cry countless times. If you haven't played Mother 3, stop reading this and go play it right now!

誠に感謝しておりますので, もう一度お礼を申し上げます。アリガトウ------MOTHER! >___<

Edit: HOOMMMGMGGGGSFJSF Thank you so much for the DD! So not worthy of such an honor but I am beyond grateful!

No Crying Until the End by *Kyomu is beautifully detailed and brings the characters to life. The colors are inviting and exciting--a wonderful tribute that represents fan art and the love behind it! ( Suggested by ArtofCelle and Featured by aunjuli )

I've been in a sorrowful journey in search of this fanart... I'm glad I finally found it! I just love it! It represents the whole trilogy so well! Ahhhh (Also neither Hinawa or Claus are dead yay)

This is Amazing,I love the background with the characters

This is pretty much the definitive fan fan-art of the Mother fandom.
It shows stuff from all the games and I frecuently see this image when they make videos ir articles about Mother.

Yay! Claus isn't dead! ...I think. That's what I think it is and I don't want to be wrong! Mother 3 Ghost gif

Simple and Clear message of a picture. Absolutely a MasterPiece

Since this is old, I'm reluctant to comment on it, but it's to beautiful not too~!
This piece captures the mother franchise, bright and colourful, and that's honestly a rarity with fanart. I'm going to sound like a broken record, but this is probably the best Mother fanart I've ever seen.
MMelendez92 Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2015
I really can't say anything that hasn't already been said, but this just might be the single best piece of Mother art. Anywhere. It is like a visual medley, including all of the themes, characters, and symbolism of the franchise that makes it mean so much to so many people. I really hope Itoi actually saw this, because I imagine it would make him happy and proud of what his work has done for people. 
P.S I made this my phone background a few months ago, and only now have I finally discovered the actual artist who created this.

Even though only one game of the trilogy made it to the overseas without needing fans to make fan-translations, Mr. Shigesato Itol and the Mother franchise brought three of the most heart-warming, largely fan-favorited, and wonderful RPGs ever made. Now, I know Shigesato Itol stated there wouldn't be a fourth, and that's actually a good decision to make. Because if a 4th Mother was made, it probably wouldn't get as fan-favorited as the first 3. The Mother series would be at it's greatest if it's left as it is; a memorable Nintendo IP with three of the most heart-warming, fan-favorited, and wonderful RPGs ever made that may not be anywhere close to as large as Nintendo's other IPs, but still has an incredible fanbase, even to this day. There's not going to be a fourth, but Neither Nintendo nor Shigesato Itol would forget about the franchise(Take Super Smash Bros., for example)

One of the most...*profound* series in gaming...I cannot think of a more appropriate word for it. Quite possibly some of the most amazing fan art for EarthBound/MOTHER ever drawn, if not, the.

This is excellent. An awesome tribute to an awesome franchise!!

I really want those games to be re-released...either as remakes, a collection, or whatever. As long as I can play them again!
kennedyxinfinity Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The first time I saw this picture, the only ones I could recognize were Ness, Ninten, and Lucas. Now that I have played most of the games so far, I know almost every character in here! It's so awesome! Fan art can't get any better than this, seriously. This is soooooo WONDERFUL AGGGAHDHFSKAL;GJIRKEALGHJK;.
