Fan Art: Pixelart SirTapTaps By @RaysofRed

These Pixely Bois come from watcher and YTPer @RaysOfRed on Discord and YouTube! Neko and Goose TapTap are my favorites. Surprisingly you’re not the first to draw Leggy TapTap. Cum Hat was made at my request, as I felt the Piss Hat, while funny, was a bit out of character.

And a non-pixel art one in the finest of art mediums (MS Paint)

Edit 2: And another one!

🔞Commission: Reverse Bunny Suit Nath by @ari_kaggs!

It’s Easter, so have a bunny Nath for the bunny season! This one is from @ari_kaggs on Twitter. Posting it a bit late but it’s never too late for Bunny! Ari’s stuff is great, soft and round just like I like, enjoyed how this one came out. This might be the first reverse bunny meme outfit image of Nath there is too.

SirTapTap Art Reference & Fan Art Submission Info

So you want to draw a SirTapTap, or maybe I’m commissioning you and just sent you this page. I tend to like to see how people draw TapTap on their own, but here’s a good set of info for consistency’s sake on how I tend to like my spikeballs.

  • Anatomy
    • Pretty much just a spike ball/mace head with two eyes, two shoes/feet, wide smug grin, and a big red nose
    • They’re basically smug Kirby with spikes
  • Colors
    • Darker blue-grey for the ball/body, brightly shiny silver/white for the spikes
    • Bright white teeth
    • Big red nose, shoes
      • For mood purposes, pink can do
    • Solid black eyes with white glints almost like pupils
  • Spikes
    • Wide and slightly dull, shouldn’t be TOO scary
    • Not too many, I like to see about 5 to give the impression of them being all-around
    • My favorite orientation is a “crown” of 3 spikes on the top and two on the extreme left/right, sort of like “arms“
      • See the Woofycakes TapTap for an example
    • Unevenly set, giving a sense of personality, not uniformly spaced
  • Expression /Mood
    • The grin is very important, something between chill contentedness and glib smugness, erring towards the chill side
      • Teeth are shown as plus signs marking the intersections of teeth only. It’s one of my favorite aspects of the TapTap
    • Generally looking to the side to showcase the grin. Sort of like Sonic it’s a bit odd to see it face-on
  • Do what you want
    • This is how the TapTap usually looks, but any embellishments/deviations to fit your style or piece are always welcome

These could be considered the most authoritative examples as they’re images I’ve commissioned myself, though generally I haven’t asked for too many edits to be “on-brand” either. I wanted art, not a factory-pressed widget.

Commissioned from @Klobstrosity. Though this is my most “official” art due to how often I use it, the palette isn’t quite standard; note the pinker nose/shoe tone used to blend in with the palette of the piece. But it’s my favorite piece overall due to the mood it gives.
A recent favorite, Commissioned from @Woofycakes of Blue Revolver! The palette is very Woofycakes. Love the shape of this grin.
stripicon
My first commissioned piece! Made by Andrew Stewart. A few more spikes than usual, but I like the sense of action it gives. Though generally the TapTap is more laid back.

The Origin

Yep, it’s a Tap-Tap from Yoshi’s Island (I pull the hyphen for simplicity’s sake). Here’s the official art from Nintendo for TapTaps:

Note the eyes being perfectly straight and not being afraid to pop up over the silhouette of the body in a very cartoony fashion.

Tap-Taps were nearly invincible (and in a few cases, literally invincible) enemies in Yoshi’s Island. They’re usually found just roaming around or hopping up and down, completely ignoring Yoshi. It’s often best to maneuver around them or gently push them aside rather than try to beat them.

Fan Art Submissions

It’s preferred that you email me at [email protected], if you must reach out over social, my Discord Server is acceptable but notifications can be messy on the rest so I really encourage a direct email.

When sending art please include the image/work in the least compressed method possible (PNG is great), your name/how to credit you, any social/art site links to include, and any notes you’d like me to include in the fan art post! You can see how these posts look in the Fan Art Section.

🔞Commission: Pink Bunnysuit Nath by @9HF__!

Here’s a few variants of the pic too.

Commission: Nath & Bunny by @Riloyoy (Nath Day 2021)

It’s Nath Day today! 7-10 is read similar to “Nath” in Japanese apparently, hence it’s the day for fan art of her…but that’s actually not why I got this commissioned, I just wanted two of my favorite underrated characters in a cute outfit swap. I bought these from @Riloyoy on twitter!

The theme was Bunny from Bunny Must Die and Nath from 100% Orange Juice swapping outfits. BMD was my first Doujin (Japanese Indie) Game and Nath is my favorite character from one (along with Bunny) so it seemed natural.

Dynamite Body is an item in BMD that doubles your defense, and also…

I also got a TapTap avatar from them I’ll post separately. And here’s another Bunny Nath they did that was apparently inspired by my commission!

I have some other Nath commissions as well, check them out in the 100% Orange Juice Tag. Yes, I like bunnies and bunny suits, and bunnies in bunny suits, and even Bunny (ironically NOT in a bunny suit in this case).

Fan Art: SirTapTap & Channel Background by Miranora

I’m shocked I never put these up on the site, but looking back I didn’t get a response about what information I should include as credit! These are from an OG fan Kayla AKA Minanora as they used to be known on Twitter (the account is since gone). These were made years before I had a site to put fan art on! About 2012, I believe, when I did my OFF playthrough.

These were close to the first fan art I ever got and from a close fan so they still mean a ton to me! I feel a bit bad since I know every artist hates their old art (even me, and I haven’t drawn since high school!), but I’d feel even worse not featuring heartfelt art that I got on my site!

And this was my first Channel Art! If you look…not all that closely, you can tell that the style of text here was used by Klobstrocity for my current channel art.

Fan Art: Sir TapTap vs AbyssRium Valentine’s Event 2018

ACK, I missed this one! (If I forget to post your fan art as a post here, please let me know!) This is a Tap Tap and Parker doodle by AmnesiaMoons from back in 2018 when the Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium Valentine’s event kind of…sucked.

I had it in the Fan Art Gallery but somehow it missed having its own post, so here it is in all of it’s a n g e r y glory even if it’s a bit late for AbyssRium Valentine’s Day. Thanks as always Amnesia!
