I'm not really a big fan of Mario, I dislike Super Mario Bros. 3, World, 64, and while I liked Sunshine to a fair degree, Mario Galaxy really amazed me and it was the first time I ever looked at a Mario game and said "I have to buy this!" Of course, that was after I played the demo at Wal-Mart for over an hour a few years back.
While Galaxy 2 was fun, it doesn't beat Galaxy 1 in my opinion, not by a long-shot. I decided to draw a little Mario fanart to share my love of Galaxy with everyone.
Also, I'm not including a not-so-custom-watermark in my future art. I pieced it together by using a random assortment of brushes my teacher gave me while including my initials in the center.
This was done moreover as practice, but I think I'll continue with a series of tributes to Nintendo heroes. Next is either Link or Samus, but first, I need to work on a more personal piece. This will probably also be the last time I use such vivid colors.
