nomarios is a Tumblog where artist Ashley Davis draws all the coolest videogame characters who don't get to be under the spotlight too often.
This means no one from Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Sonic, Portal, Kirby, Pokemon, Tetris, Mega Man, Final Fantasy, Street Fighter, most other major Nintendo series and most games made in the past five years.1 Basically, any character that doesn't show up on Tumblr's gaming radar very often is fair game. 2 No licensed characters either!
1 Exceptions may be made for the stars of less popular spinoffs
2 I have nothing against these guys! I love Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Link, Pokemon and Nintendo as a whole very dearly. But there are tons of other cool guys who deserve lots of attention too!

NOMARIOS IS GOING ON CHRISTMAS BREAK!
Hey everyone! I’ll be away for the next two weeks, so I just wanted to let you know the following:
1. No new drawings until the new year. I’m so sorry for the scarcity of updates lately, this has been a very busy work season for me. But once the new year gets into gear, so will I! Feel free to continue putting suggestions in the ask box while I’m away!
2. Any orders placed from now until January will not be shipped until the 9th or so. Any orders that have been placed within the past two weeks will be shipped today or Monday!
3. Have a great holiday season! I’ll see you next year!
FAVORITE FORGOTTEN ZELDA CHARACTERS?
We all know that there are hundreds of cool videogame characters that rarely see the spotlight. But did you know that a lot of these guys have to actually live in the same world as the popular guys? It’s true!
And it’s so, so sad. Which is why I want to do something special to honor them: a huge group portrait. I plan to visit many universes, including Kirby and Mario. But the first universe I want to visit is Zelda.
So tell me, who are your favorite forgotten characters of Zelda? Is it Prince Richard? Ezlo? Purdy?
PRINTS ARE BACK, AND PAX PRIME IS HERE TOO!
Like the title says, you can order nomarios prints again! Just hop on over to the store with this link! If you order this week, though, please note that it will be a week before I can send out your order.
Why? Because this week is PAX Prime! It’s a super fun videogames convention that’s held in Seattle, Washington. I won’t be able to update more this week because I’ll be at PAX, but hopefully you’ll be there too!
I’ll be on a panel Saturday morning at 10 AM (for Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’?, a webseries that I help make) and hanging around the Fangamer booth a lot with other great artist friends (Maré Odomo, Zac Gorman and Chris Furniss, to name a few), so if you want to, come say hi!
(I might be dressed as Kaylee from Firefly or wearing a Prinny hat if you need additional help locating me)
PRINTS TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE
My old printer finally kicked the bucket after five years of service, so prints will be gone for just a little while. I’m planning to get a new one over the weekend, so hopefully they will be back by Monday! Any orders made within the last week have to wait until then to be processed. I apologize for any inconvenience!
