I just wanted this tribute to be the first deviation of the year, and it's finally done! Wohoo!
This drawing has been inspired to the first deviation I've uploaded on deviantart: [link] (and also one of my first digital pictures drawn back in 2005!). I have been always thinking to draw a remake of it with my new style and add the Koopalings instead of the other enemies...but I have been stuck in my personal opinion :"not drawing again the same thing"...than I have changed my mind, as you can see!
This drawing took me soooo long...I have to care to many commitments trough its time. As soon as I had free time and enough inspiration, I worked on this. I have put a lot of effort on this piece because I tried to be as near as possible to what was in my mind (because sometimes I am too lazy for it XD).
I really love Super Mario Bros 3: it made my childhood and I still enjoy playing this game. I guess it has something magical...hasn't it?
Yes, I realised how little I've done works like this since I made my new channel, but even though I want to put more time and focus into my own stories, I'll try to fit some time in to draw fan art of games, TV shows, or films and such.
By the way, if you're wondering what's up with Mario and Peach's clothes, take a look at their sprites in the NES game, "Super Mario Bros."
