Ok SSSsssoooooooo, this is my spin on mario, inspired by the idea of, what if MK9 and the supermario bros on Wii were blending into the ultimate barbaric 3D side scroller ever. And this would be an ultimate power up mario's, like a special move where he not only fires fireballs at you but the ground opens up behind him and rain volcanic rock and ash your @$$.
A painting that took quite some time^^ I did the sketch 1 year ago, but pretty much forgot about that and finished it today. Iīm not quite happy with the result yet, especially the composition still bothers me, but I donīt know where exactly and what to do about that :/ Anyway, it was fun to paint and I loved the pixel fucking in the end XD
Here`s the thing: If you have any advice on improving the piece, please leave a comment and let me know what you think! It will be highly appreciated!!
You can also add me on facebook if you dare [link]
By the way: Special thanks to ~Lankya for kicking my ass on that
After like the hundredth time, she's getting kidnapped by Bowser, all over again. If I was her I would be tired of playing the victim too. Sure, she got to be "one of the guys" in Mario Bros. 2, but that turned out to just be a dream. And she did eventually get a starring role in her own videogame... where she had to use her emotional powers to overcome obstacles and defeat her enemies. She's just as much perpetually trapped by old tropes just as often as she is stuck in Bowser's clutches.
Among the weapons she has utilized in various Mario games: Slapping gloves, an umbrella, a frying pan, pink hearts, and her emotions
*Surprise! This was a partial crop of a mural WIP. Here is part of the mural: fav.me/d6mghk7
UPDATE: I finally got around to fixing the error with his beard-sideburn tie-in oh and btw, Luigi will probably bedone soon!
This is a fanart of Super Mario, the one and only Video game Hero, hence the title. I wanted him to look a bit more badass and realistic, while still retaining his characteristic look.
This is obviously a huuuge tribute to the style that the great Dave Rapoza uses on his Turtle fanarts. Cred to you Dave, if you ever read this. Your turtles are amazing (and on my wall, bought them straight from you!) and I wanted to do something similar with a fanart of one of my childhood heroes. Since you already picked the Turtles, which are my number one choice, I had to settle for the second best, which is Nintendo.
If anyone wants a poster of this one, in INSANE HI-res, on maximum quality photo paper, that looks like this. contact me via Note, or via firstname.lastname@example.org! There's a limited edition of these (like 50 or so), so if you want one, you better be fast! The price will probably be around 45 USD(shipping not included, shipping to the states are 20 USD in a enforced postertube), depending on print quaity... but take word for it, they look amazing printed (the pic above doesn't make the real one justice)!: D
*Luigi! **After Luigi.. I guess.. Peach, and bowser, and well, the rest : D *** Here's the pic and 3D-model I did some year ago which kinda led to this. **** A friend of mine did two fanarts from Phoenix Wright in a similiar "more serious" style, if you like this one, you should check them out too, here: obsessedkitten.deviantart.com/… and here: obsessedkitten.deviantart.com/…
