<<One day, King Bowser Koopa, the great and powerful leader of the militaristic Koopa Troop, invades the peaceful Mushroom Kingdom. He and his Koopa Troop are jealous of the beautiful kingdom, and King Bowser decides to take it for himself. To do this, Bowser casts an evil spell upon the kingdom and transforms all of its inhabitants into blocks, weeds, and other odd objects.>>
Darkness seems to win over the Light!
I made the drawing wirth pen and then coloured with Adobe Photoshop!
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?
First of all, this composition was made for a contest of...LAST YEAR. So it's almost one year old (on the 5th of nove,ber). You can see some random items on this drawing (listed also at the bottom of this long post lol) and they were meant to be there just because of the contest rules (you had to add some of the items listed from the rules in a “logical” scene with Nintendo characters as subjects, in very less words). I have finished this composition at the very last moment and so I had to took a photo when it was evening and my camera doesn't work very well when there isn't sunlight. That's the why that it seems a drawing but, in reality, it's a big composition made of many different drawing...almost like my Paper Mario 2 drawing, but much more tridimensional.
Why have I been waiting so much to upload this drawing on deviantart? Well, simply because I wanted to take a different photo with a different lighting which could show better its tridimensionality, but my cats slept on this composition (sooo comfortable! ) and munched some figures...and ruined it, so I had to rebuild it...but I was too tired of all of this!
Do you understand what I am saying?
By the way, I have arrived only 14th at this contest (also predicted by a night dream! D= ) and I could win Art Academy for NDS...but I don't like it so much. lol
This piece is pretty particular and I've spent a lot of time on it (about 1 week and a half) ... shame is that this is a photo and it doesn't show very well the main idea! Let me explain you (with a veeeery long post) how I made it..if you have enough patience!
MAKING OF This piece is like a “scene” standing by itself. Almost every layer of this drawing stands upwith a paper support (while other are attached on the background_ like on my Paper Mario drawing!). In the first layer there are 3 different figures of Peach and her Umbrella, Mario and Bowser Jr and I have used the "Chess" floor as paper support for them; close to their layer, there are Daisy and Morton (which are only 1 figure) and I used a white strip of sheet as support for them (it's hidden); Wendy and the "servant-koopa" are two distinct figures attached on another strip of chess floor (paper support).... same thing for Kamek, Bowser and Lemmy (even if you do not notice ... (sigh) Bowser and Lemmy are 2 different figures, they are not part of the same drawing like Morton and Daisy). In the background I attached a big paper strip of chess floor, where I attacked Luigi, Ludwig, a mandolin and Koopatrol (or guard koopa ... he is too cool, I had to draw one!! X3). The arch with Bowser face on the door is directly attached to the background, which is the latest layer (I painted it black with watercolour) and on top of it, I attacked Boos, Lakitu Boo, Roy and Larry. I did the same thing with columns and curtains (I folded some of the columns figures_ those who are meant to be “nearer”_ to make them more 3D): all of these figures are directly attached to the black background (which is a A4 sheet I coloured black with watercolours). On one of the columns, I hung Donkey Kong and Iggy (wich are the same figure).
TOOLS I've coloured each characters figures with pastels; the checkered floor is a simple pattern I made with Adobe Photoshop CS4 and then I printed it to use as part of the scene (and as paper support for the figures, of course). The background is a big piece of paper sheet I coloured with black watercolour (and I have put a lot of water to have more boat effect, which seems “fog” for the scene).... Every figure I made a different drawing cut out and attached on each floor layer, rolling behind each piece of tape "stick off" (so you do not ruin anything when I will have to adapt everything XD): even rolling the tape, you gives a more three dimensional characters, so it does not seem one with the bottom. Each floor layer has a white strip which is a paper support to make the floor (and all the rest), stend up! I used Adobe Photoshop on the photo to make the torch's light.
Last but not least .... pure and real COTTON. It works as fog for the background and mainly as foam coming out of the estinguisher. I enjoyed a lot working with cotton, also because it can be shaped at will.
SCENE Mario has just defeated Bowser for the umpteenth time ... BUT switched off his fire with a fire extinguisher this time! Poor Bowser, you feel very disgraced after this last failure. Lemmy does not understand that with with what (and WHO) has to do, and then passes a toothbrush .... Lemmy Bowser, you're crazy. Kamek thinks that if is deliberately going to try ... Vabbuò. Grins Mario and Bowser Jr. for the incident ... rightly rebukes him. Do not do this, a bad guy Mario! Meanwhile, Louis goes to inspect a dark door with just a torch ... but is frightened by the minions of Bowser that suddenly appear from the darkness (they run away because of the light of the very simple flashlight Luigiiii though ... XD) ! Poor Luigi stumbles and falls straight on for fear of Ludwig MANDOLIN liq. Nuooo! I do not want to know how it will end. DK, who meanwhile has come to the aid of his friends ... or maybe not? Is focusing too much on the funny hair Iggy: I smell everything! Meanwhile, comes to the rescue: Daisy Morton hit with a frying pan (THAT MUST HURRRRT) .. but also their coming-Larry and Roy are returning to the castle to help Bowser and others! The only ones that do not seem to care much about all this chaos, seem to be Peach (which is easily repaired with his umbrella) and Wendy, wiping her new hairstyle with a frothy PHON, reflected on a heavy mirror (do not tell the koopa !)... not carinaaa?
ITEMS Fire extinguisher (Mario), umbrella (Peach), mandolin (between Louis and Ludwig), fishing rod (Lakitu Boo), rope (Roy and Larry), pan (Daisy) Torch (between Boo and Luigi), hair dryer (Wendy), toothbrush (Lemmy), bananas (in the comics of Donkey Kong).
NOTE: * The scene: For this design, I am just inspired by Super Mario All Stars (it was my very first video game ... the first one who sent me for Mario and company fixed the age of 5 ... woooo) , for what we are also Bowserotti (or koopalings XD) and the scenario is deliberately inspired by the levels of Bowser's castle, as they appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3 (I like both these levels, because they have a lot of "atmosphere" ...)! * Donkey Kong and Daisy have nothing to do with Mario Bros All Stars ... but seeing the list of objects to be used, I thought they were pretty good in this megamix!
Update 2014-09-01: Now includes Pom-Pom and Antasma. Changed the format of the picture to fit with the rest of my poster-like artwork. Also put the new watermark over the picture. I'd normally say I'm sorry for ruining the picture with a watermark, but this time, I'm not!
Another remake of an old picture, with an appropriately updated title! This time for my tribute to all of the major bosses of the Mario universe, reloaded for 2011. Of course, since almost 6 years have passed since the original, there's a few additions, from new characters to old ones that were omitted in the original. Can you name all these characters? And better yet, can you tell from WHAT game each of them come from?
Paint Tool SAI, about 30 hours. All characters above belong to Nintendo! See the original below:
Mario and Bowser are puttin' their dukes up... on a DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION BATTLE! Who is going to win this epic confrontation between good and evil? May the best dancer win!
This picture is mostly a thank you gift for my dearest girlfriend, *lamarce. Her constant presence, support and help in my comic booking "career" (if we can say so) is really one of those things that keep me going on when times get hard. Her help was especially precious during the writing of The 3 Little Princesses. She proved to be a great brainstorming companion when came time to find ideas, or when I just plain hit a wall.
Some of her great ideas found their way into the final comic, which are:
The cosmic duct tape; The TV presentator's dialogue on page 8; The Sleepover Cap of Destiny (inspired from a concept she came up with a long time ago); The cement cake becoming a Mistake; The Whacka Juice (the name, not the idea).
She also played the "editor" role by pointing out my typos, and helping with the French translation of the comic.
This picture is one of her ideas as well.
So I want to ask you all a little favour. If you liked T3LP, instead of commenting here with the usual "good job" kind of message, I ask you to go to her gallery and leave her a message of your appreciation for the ideas she gave for the sake of the comic. If you can't do that, at the very least, just look around and check out her stuff. I'm pretty sure she'll appreciate it, and that you'll find something interesting along the way. She deserves her part of the cake for her contribution.
Not sparta. He is evil, badass, good lookin', talented and every other thing that exists that people love about this guy including myself! If you don't know Bowser by now, you clearly have to get out/ play video games more. This was requested to completion by ~nokamarau NO THAT DOES NOT MEAN I TAKE REQUESTS OF ANYTHING OR FOR EVERYONE! LEARN TO READ DAMN IT!! Enjoy!
Inked in Colored in All artwork done by me~ Bowser belongs to Nintendo-
After talking to the other day, it kinda made me feel bad that I put koopa art on the side lines considering I used to draw it so much in the past. I still love Koopas, I just wanted to give other fandoms a shot since I love more than just the Mario franchise. Me being a true fan artist at heart, I still remain a Koopa artist too, but that isn't the ONLY type I am. Anyways, for the record, I still love Bowser incredibly and he will always remain the greatest character of all time to me.
I just wanted to take it easy from the Koopa art for a while. I am sorry for having Koopa fans wait longer than expected for the type of art, its just I will not draw it as frequently as I used to. Long story short, I still will continue to do Koopa art, just not as much as I did back then. Time to make other fandoms shine in my style. I am hoping to continue impressing you guys with my other fan art as much as I did with my Koopa art. I hope you guys don't mind the change. For the love of all Koopa and Bowser fans, here's Bowser from me to you folks! Enjoy!!
I got this idea from when I was iscribbling with She randomly started drawing Boo Mario and I was like.. ha!! Boo Bowser!! That means I should practice 3D coloring again. Anyways, the drawing didn't take too long. It was the crazy bg that took me a while, but hey, isn't he cute? don't make him mad, or he will use his ghostly fire on you!!
trying Paper Mario style... i think i should have drawn Mario's Partners(Goombella,Vivian etc..) these are final-bosses of paper mario series,Mario&Luigi series and marioRPG (some of them are incorrect)
i love Count Bleck and Bowser New Paper mario is NO partner..No Original Characters ;_; i want to play though (unreleased in japan yet )
Bowser,BowserJr.,Count Bleck,Dimentio,Fawful, Cackletta,Elder Princess Shroob,Shadow Queen and Smithy belong to Nintendo

Well!!! i think i don't drew Bowser so much,i don't know why,he's one of my favourite characters!!
Finally Bowser will get a kiss!! but not from Peach poor guy,i don't want to know what will happens next,so,better run Princess!!! I took this ideia from Mario Power Tennis,when Bowser wins the tournament
For the more perceptives,yes! i changed the bowser's colors agaain,i don't like the old colors,i think it's better this way (from now ) And Birdo,yeah! she's wearing shoes
this month probably i'll post a lot of drawings,finally i take some days of vacation of school,it's not like a summer vacation,it just some weeks,but it's time enough to do some drawings
Well,this drawings shows how small people can be stronger like tall people,like Mario!! Poor Bowser,he needs to stop eating a lot and go to a gym!!
i changed my comment because i said Mario is stronger than bowser,actually he's not Bowser it's stronger than Mario,and really powerfull,he's problem it's your bumbness,that why Mario can defeat him all the time!
A quick painting of little Mario I played "Super Mario 3D Land" and i really really like it! And i love little Mario! xD He's so adorable, i almost avoid it to get a mushroom. But well... thats not very safe. I'm not that satisfied with how Mario looks here, i think i can draw him better next time.^^
Seems like i always draw the nintendo heroes while relaxing. [link]
For everyone who loves the new game 'Luigis Mansion 2, Dark Moon'. It's so awesome and cuute! And to all Luigi Fans!! I know you always want more fan arts where Luigi is the main character!^^ Now i go back and play! muhaha
Some might noticed, i'm a huge Super Mario Fan, so i made a new fan art today. I saw some new artworks of the new game 'New Super Mario Bros. 2' which i'm very excited about! : D All those coins!! It's awesome I'm really looking forward to it!! ♥
First i didn't know what title this painting should have. I've shown it to and she gave me a hint.
