"Snowman" is the 22nd video game painting by Mal on MalMakes.
MOTHER 3 is Mal's favorite game of all time. While she and Stephen haven't done a full Let's Play of the game, they covered the first chapter of the game for Extra Life 2016.
Mal was also inspired to paint this picture after feeling a bit nostalgic for winters in Wisconsin, where she grew up. Coincidentally, some of the techniques she uses in this painting are the same ones she used to create a mural while she was a student teacher in Wisconsin.
