Mario: Star Struck by NatSilva Mario: Star Struck by NatSilva
I hope you are all in for some reading.... :iconteheplz:
I haven't uploaded anything new for a while now, and since I'm slowly getting my mojo back I decided to master up something simple to get me started...

I'm sure most of you are aware of the Wii U and it's game New Super Mario Bros U.. kick ass game in my whole honest opinion, it's so fun and exciting I constantly freak out when my boyfriend plays his little speed run style, forget Gangman..I actually shreak and jolt as I watch him fly through the levels..

In this particular picture, we have typical Mario on hyper drive! Star power anyone? :D seems it's useful for most things and just running through a level like mad, collecting 1UP's and such.. and can also be used on the actual map itself as you navigate through it..grab a star and run in to a penguin or whatever else is in your path and watch the sparks fly!! Mwahahaha..

Lots of cool things have me excited about New Super Mario Bros U, even though the game play itself isn't very "new" but for something FINALLY being done in lovely crisp HD I am not complaining.. ;)

Multi player is yet to be played here.. even though we did test it before Didz got his copy from Santa so it was fun, I just need the motivation to get me in to gaming again like I used to be.. it's in me some where! *checks*....

ART RANT
Has anyone seen the player manual that comes with New Super Mario Bros U? *u* I miss the instruction manuals these days as they used to be full of colourful pictures and cool stuff back when we were kids.. But anyway, in the booklet I flicked through I saw a pic of Mario all rainbowy and stuff! So I said to Didz "Hmm I wouldn't mind doing that in my own style" ^_^ It just looked so cool and full of colour, I wanted to give it a try..so yeah that is where the main idea came from. C: Thanks Nintendo for the little pics here and there!

I'm not 100% happy with the pose though, Mario looks awkward and I dunno..his legs look odd. It was a quick muck a round doodle at first but when I started colouring it, it started appealing to me more and more.. In the end I didnít even use a ref or look at the booklet picture :lol: I will now though..pre typed comments are so fun >:] now all I need to do is wait for Didz to fix the internet.. :typerhappy:

I guess this oneís for you bubby! <3 *sits patiently and waits*...

:pencil: Crayola pencils and edited with GIMP (just a little sparkle and colour around the border).

Watermarked due to theft

Enjoy!~

I thought some thing like balloon feeling, you know if there was a balloon Mario out there it'd look shiny and metallic looking *u*

I was thinking you should do another drawing with you and Didz in the Mario world, with Didz super, kind of like the one where you had him eat a ton of mushrooms, if he was like that with mushrooms, god help us if he goes super…

I have New Super Mario Bros. U and it's really awesome. It's feels like a rehashed version of Super Mario World, which is probably one of my favorite video games of all time. And I love the world map. It's so vast and wide like Super Mario World's world map was :aww:.

And yes I agree. I miss when the instruction booklets were much more detailed and colorful. Nowadays they just give the basics and how to play and that's about it =(.

yeah same, I loved Super Mario World on the SNES, and I believe NSMBU is almost identical to it's original counterpart, the game play is awesome, levels are fun and can also be frustrating..just like Super Mario World lol..Playing on the new controller is sooooo nice, and the map itself has so much in it that takes me back to the SNES classic..:aww: If only Nintendo would remake Super Mario Bros 3!! That is my crack right there haha, and Yoshi's Island...and, and...

YESSSSS~ the instruction booklets where awesome to have as refs for drawing too, packed with lovely art work, I took them to bed with me and studied them before I went to sleep :la:

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! ^_^

Wow, Natz, this is an awesome drawing of the incredible power up. :clap:

The rainbow colors on Mario is very well detailed and colorful.

I seriously go crazy speed-running and not stopping at all when I get the Super Star =D, I am not joking =p and let's not get to the music. *coughs*itsamazinglycatchy*:cough:

Anyways, amazing artwork, there. :handshake:

It's a shame that the booklets are so small now, I really liked smelling them =p Not sure if that's healthy ^^;

RAe you kidding? Smelling the booklets was the best part! <3 lol we still have a sniff here and there, but yeah they are pretty small now with hardly any good artwork except for a few little things..
