The Odyssey

Woo, here it is~ After watching the trailer I immediately felt like drawing fanart of this game, but due to school and other irl stuff I didn't really have the time to do it right away. But hey, it's done, hope i'm not too late to jump into the hat bandwagon. ;P

I just love everything about this game so far, it seems so unique and creative and i'm really looking forward to it. While drawing the ship, I noticed that most things seem to be hat-themed. Heck I realized the ship itself is modeled after a top hat, lmao. That's super cool, I'm hoping we can see Mario (and maybe Luigi? I hope so, please, that's why I included him here lol) wearing other fancy hats and stuff.

Anyways yeah, hope you like it! <3

Only if the sequel could let us play as Luigi and not as npc like the ballon mini game maybe this year we get odyssey 2 never know

Luigi definitely should have been playable in Odyssey. He should have been alongside his brother, exploring the kingdoms and worlds with him. Such a shame that he was demoted to a mini-game host which is really disappointing

Let me start off by saying, I LOVe "Mario Odyssey". To me, it's the best game since "Super Mario RPG" for the SNES. But, I will say this about the game (and it seems I'm not the only one who thinks so), I was disappointed that Luigi wasn't in it. But I'm rambling, let's focus on the artwork.

I really like that you put Luigi on the Odyssey. Luigi is such an over-looked character (he's over-looked by Nintendo, and yet, Nintendo fans love him).

I am in love with the highlights and shadows on the Odyssey and the brothers. I'm especially in love with the glare on the headlight, I'm a sucker for little details like that.

The clouds and the sun's rays blend to together so well, it's pleasing to the eye.

One thing I have to nitpick at is more on my preference and what I grew up seeing. Mario seems a bit tall. I don't know; I grew up seeing Mario portrayed as this stout little dude.
Again, it's just what i grew up seeing.

Overall, I love this piece. It show what the game could have been like (and should have, in my opinion).

P.S. I REALLY hope we get a full-fledged Luigi game in the future. I, mean yeah, we have "Luigi's Mansion" and "Luigi Super U" (and I love em), but those games seem smll to the Mario titles.

This is my first critique, so I'll try to be the most honestly :

Vision : I like you put Luigi on the Odyssey, many players really hoped Luigi was playable on the adventure...

Originality : I see just ONE another drawing with the Odyssey, so this is not like another many fanart about the game, good !

Technique : Shadings and lights are smooth and fresh.

Impact : I LOVE the background with the clouds and the sun, that make me dreaming. And we also think where our heroes going.

Final : This is a very good drawing, good work and continue to make others quality arts like this ^^ !

You know what's ironic? Galaxy was about going into space (of course) but Odyssey is about traveling the world, and it already looks much larger and grander by comparison. This gorgeous drawing does it justice. The shining sun, the ocean of clouds, Mario pointing at something ahead and Luigi shading his eyes to get a better view. It screams adventure. Where are the Bros heading today? It's a big world, and, to me, you've encapsulated that fact beautifully in one drawing. Wherever Mario and Luigi go, there'll be fun and excitement along the way, this picture assures me of that.

All in all, I actually really like the style this picture is done in, and the inclusion of Luigi in it perks my curiosity to if Nintendo is either gonna include him as part of the game's story as a simple NPC, or have a multiplayer mode where you can play as him. Please keep in mind that I don't plan on getting a Switch until they either drop in price, or come in a special bundle set where you get more for about the same price you would pay for just the Switch right now. The art style this is done in really reminds me of those Mario and Luigi RPG games (which I really ought to play), and it appeals to me. Good work.

The background, shading, lighting and depth you added to this is just amazingly perfect! I too am excited for the upcoming switch game, Super Mario Odyssey! It just seems like a whole new adventure that's like Galaxy and 3D World all put together, only THIS TIME, they're bringing back the exploration thing they used in 64 and Sunshine! I am interested in this hat theme, and those bizarre levels, like the New Donk City level feature REAL-LIFE people, The Ice/Desert Level with those shivering skull guys in Sombreros, and that forest level! I'm glad you've decided to express your excitement of the new Mario game! Makes me want to express y excitement about it too! Thank you for this inspiration! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

Totally agree, this is one of the best artwork I ever saw. When the super mario odyssey come out, maybe I should get a nintendo switch for christmas. OwO

I secretly wished to get my own Nintendo Switch too, especially since it might also replace The 3DS as the Handheld Console.

Luigi may be in this as an unlockable character, like they did with Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 as well as Super Mario 3D Land.

Somebody doesn't know the meaning of strikethrough text.

On the bright side, at least your username is accurate. :/
