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?
poster done up for a video game auction at an upcoming coming children's event. i was commissioned by head of the auction committee and was honored. last of my email based commissions for a while. so im pretty happy about that.
----layout on paper, lines in sai, colors in photoshop----
--UPDATE!-- got featured in game informer magazine!
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."
EDIT 2 (edit 1 at the end xD) XD: sorry for the update, but I made some corrections to the drawing.
<<I'll rule a great galactic empire with Peach by my side. It will last forever! I will rule every pitiful corner of the universe. So, Mario, as you can see, I've got big plans... and stomping you is at the top of my list!>>
If only I was a famous moviemaker and/or if I had a mountain of money thanks to this (or also thanks to other!!!), I would take seriously the idea to make of Super Mario Galaxy the most epic animated movie of ever!
Even if some gamers won't agree with me, I believe that Super Mario Galaxy is the best Super Mario Game of ever!
And the second part, Super Mario galaxy 2, is coming soon this year!!! Yayyyyyyy!!!!! CAN't WAIT!! ^o^
I don't know if you saw it, but Bowser got amoveset very similar to the Mario ones. I have choosen the best move (in my opinion ) for this drawing. ...I must say that Bowser scares me always when he makes this kind of dark tornado, because he becomes very fast all of sudden! Anyway, you can shield this Bowser's attack with the same move: I think also this particular situation is precious in the game! ^.^ drawing made by hands and then coloured with Adobe Photoshop CS4. Time spent on this: maybe more than 24 hours...mamma mia!
Bowser moveset is similar to the Mario one I noticed:
1) He makes triple jump (little, medium and high), just like Mario, but staying in the place and creating also dangerous waves when he touches the ground. 2) He swings on his feet and he creates little black-sparkling lights from his arms, like that Super Mario attack of Galaxy (with the difference Mario has blue-white sparkling lights coming out of his arms) 3) Bowser jumps and knocks down with his bottom sometimes during the battle..just like Super Mario!!
I don't think these attacks are pure coincidence...
EDIT: "Musical drawing" here >>> [link]* Hope you like Super Mario galaxy music! ^_^ (I have some projects to work with this program and I am not thinking of slideshows...XD)
