This is a fanart of Super Mario, the one and only Video game Hero
, hence the title. I wanted him to look a bit more badass and realistic, while still retaining his characteristic look.
This is obviously a huuuge tribute to the style that the great Dave Rapoza
uses on his Turtle fanarts
. Cred to you Dave, if you ever read this. Your turtles are amazing (and on my wall, bought them straight from you!) and I wanted to do something similar with a fanart of one of my childhood heroes. Since you already picked the Turtles, which are my number one choice, I had to settle for the second best, which is Nintendo.
If anyone wants a poster of this one, in INSANE HI-res, on maximum quality photo paper, that looks like this.
contact me via Note, or via email@example.com! There's a limited edition of these (like 50 or so), so if you want one, you better be fast! The price will probably be around 45 USD(shipping not included, shipping to the states are 20 USD in a enforced postertube), depending on print quaity... but take word for it, they look amazing printed (the pic above doesn't make the real one justice)!: D
*Luigi is in the works and coming up! Stay tuned, more to come!
**After Luigi.. I guess.. Peach, and bowser, and well, the rest : D
Here's the pic
I did some year ago which kinda led to this.
A friend of mine did two fanarts from Phoenix Wright in a similiar "more serious" style, if you like this one, you should check them out too, here: [link]
