Nintendo 3D Mario

This is the main culmination of my work over the last 8+ months. I don't mean that this render literally took over 8 straight months to create, it's just that all my previous 3D SMB renders created in that time span served as stepping stones, leading to this final "8-bit magnum opus".

This is my 3D modeling take on the landmark 8bit video game Super Mario Bros., for the original Nintendo. I tried to cram everything but the proverbial kitchen sink into this render (unfortunately, I can't really find a way to incorporate Bowser, Podoboo, and Blooper in this deviation). Here's a 3D SMB scene with Bloopers in it, so they aren't left out:

Everything in this deviation is 'built' by plotting cubes side by side, not that unlike if I were to build everything with Lego blocks (which I'd like to try doing soon, if money permits). Many have asked what program I used to make this...I used Bryce 5; Bryce is the only 3D modeling software that I use for my voxel Nintendo renders.

Infinite thanks to all those who comment on, fave, download, and use this desktop wallpaper.

wait, that wouldn't work... cause in the game, you have to jump on top of the pipes to get over them you don't just waltz on by and say its part of the background...

Sweetness! Would love to see Nintendo make this type of 3d version of the classic Mario.
