Why a photoshoot? It wasn't intended at first, but someone pointed out that it looked like they were posing for one. I don't know how you would go about to gather all these enemies and make them stay in one place for that long. Bowser, Chain Chomp and Shyguy are the only ones who seem to look into the camera, though.
Photoshop CS2, too many hours. I'll go lay down now.
Outstanding! The level of detail you put into each character is amazing. You rendered this beautifully. The concept for this piece is also great! This is fan art at it's finest! You are tremendously talented and your work is very inspiring. Excellent job!
