Epic Mario Battles by KickStartDesigns Epic Mario Battles by KickStartDesigns
Here is my latest Fan Art (or tribute if I may) to one of the first and far most best franchises I have ever played...

Through today now, Mario and all the characters are seen a cartoon like and not taken seriously. Back when I played Super Mario Bros. on the NES, this image was in my mind. Not exactly like this but it came pretty close.

I made Mario more gritty, but not too much. I designed him to be more of a Revolution Leader then a plummer, I also gave him his trademark hammer from the first Mario Bros.

The Koopa Troopers were designed after the Hawk Men from the Flash Gordon movie, and the Gumpas came from the Head Carps from Half-Life.

I kept all characters the same, except for putting Peach in a Prison Uniform and Designing Luigi like Shaggy form Scooby-Doo.

I took a whole day to color, shade, detailed, and textured Bowser. I designed him to be more brutal and more reptile than the original one, not to mention demon like.

Every thing else was just a quick touch up.

Please leave a comment on your thoughts on my piece of work....

I do not Own the rights to these characters, This is just Fan Art.

Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bower, Koopa, Gumba, Toadstools, Toad, Toadet, Yoshi, Super Mario Bros. and all related content are officially the right of Nintendo

P.S. quick shout out to Deviant user FuelFireDesire :iconfuelfiredesire: who made liquid brushes for use in Photoshop that was used to make the Splashing Lava effects.
