Manly Mario

Well, whattaya know? It's Mario the bear and his cubbish--or maybe I should say otterish--bro, Luigi!

Actual title: "Enter the Mushroom Kingdom"

This piece was created by Australian artist Jeffrey "CHAMBA" Cruz (aka lastscionz), who shares on his deviantart page that it was "drawn on A4 size paper using 4H and HB lead [and] coloured in PSCS3 using an Intuos2."

I have no idea what that means, but I'm happy it allowed him to produce such awesomely imaginative imagery.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't have any clue what that means. What a sweet image, though!

The baddies in the image are especially impressive -- and scary -- don't you think?

Viewtiful_Justin said...

Absolutely. I love it when people draw video game characters how they might look in real that creepy-ass shyguy image from way back...

So neat.

And this is completely unrelated, but I laughed my butt off when I looked down and saw that my word verification was "weepods".

Ha ha! The word verification thingy often is a good source of chuckles, isn't it?
