Hello, yes, I'm the only person that doesn't actually see this character as a souless murderer(even though I don't care if people see him that way because it's fucking hilarious too) I just see him as a badass that also looks really adorable.
he might actually replace Kirby as my usual SSB character : O gaaasp
ANYWAYS I SHOULD BE STUDYING RIGHT NOW BUT E3 IS REALLY DISTRACTING OMG
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 email@example.com! 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/…
The idea for this drawing came when I realized that Mario also grows just like the HULK and eliminates everything that comes in his path. So here is Mario shown taking a bite of his power-up mushroom and then growing bigger and his clothes are shrinking and ripping off!
