so i managed to stuff three video game references in to this.
any way, i decided to do this one with a different style then normal, because you learn more by doing different things, also for the obvious reason.
EDIT: the moth is not a references.
EDIT 2: okay since its been awhile the references are: the art style, the fire, and the mushroom, i'm not going to say where they are from because what's the fun in that.
edit 3 : since so few have actually figured it out, (judging by the comments) the mushroom is from a certain NES game.
