Pretty old piece, but still one of my favs. Done back in good ol' 2003. Believe it or not... this was inspired by Mario carts. lol.

My sister was playing, and she chose the little 'shroom dude as her driver, and I was like... dude... you could do, like, people mushrooms. Yes, my brain is articulate like that. :D

My mom actually wrote an awesome poem that goes in that big white/yellow/misty place. I'll post it later.

Ikr? Haha. I've been exploring a few different styles over the years. I wish I had time to do more pieces like this one, but they don't sell as well as the simpler style, so that' been part of it...

I love your technique, use of color, and level of detail in this piece! The trees in the distant background are a nice touch. Each little mushroom seems to have their own personality. Great work :w00t:
