Happy 20th Anniversary Starfox

Twenty years ago today, on the 21 February 1993, Star Fox was released in Japan for Nintendo's Super Famicon console and was the first game from Nintendo to use 3D polygon graphics, generated by the Super FX processor. When it was released in Europe in June that year, its name was changed to Starwing due to a trademark issue.

Five years later, Star Fox 64 – called Lylat Wars in Europe – was released for the Nintendo 64 console, and was notable for the voice acting featured in the game which included a number of memorable phrases, especially Peppy Hare's "Do a barrel roll", which eventually went on to become an Internet meme and even a hidden easter egg on the search engine Google (try searching for "Do a barrel roll"...).

So I thought I'd draw something to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Star Fox...
