Mega Mini by Imson Mega Mini by Imson
Did I mention that I'm doing a bunch of these? No? Well, I am. We'll see how many it'll be. I'll have to mix up the style to keep it interesting I suppose.

So I'm exploring the Mario consept here. Always been facinated by that "small" form Mario has in the sidescroller games. It can be discussed wether the small form is his "normal" form, or that the Mushroom Kingdom makes people shrink and he needs to scoff shrooms to say normal. Either way, he has a pretty peculiar look that I tried to translate somewhat while playing with the shapes a little. Luigi is in giant size here to kind of play on the whole idea.

Again, I guess I didn't deviate as much as I'd like from the original style of the games. I tried a bit of a wonky fireflower and some odd details here and there, but nothing fancy. Fun non the less.

My favorite game series ever. I grew up with the Mario Bros and this picture is the perfect tribute to them. Very well done!:nod:

BEST Mario game ever. When I was younger,I always used the Super P in the desert level with the angry sun.....until I found out you could kill it with a koopa shell....

Awesome style. Very much preserves the flavor of the old 8-bit goodness.

Looks like the Angry Sun is out to get Luigi! And I like how the fire flower actually has flames coming out of the middle. Nintendo's doesn't.
Imson Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2009
Or maybe it's just intensely trying to picture what Luigi looks like without the mustache. We may never know!

The fire flower has gone through so many renditions over the years that there's bound to be one with some fire in it. (If I remember correctly, there were some flair particles in galaxy) It started out as a glowing, white pettled orb, moved to a tulip, in the shows it looked more like a daisy of some kind, then got some eyes with a ring pattern.

I was tempted to recreate one of the versions, but this was about messing things up, so I altered it a bit. Should really have changed it more.

Aw, Mario looks cute when mini ^^ But that's not his "normal" form, as we can see on other games.
Imson Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2009
It's just a gameplay mechanic either way. Trying to pinpoint logic in a world with levitating bricks and talking turtles isn't very fruitfull.

Doesn't make his tiny form any less facinating though. :9
LuisaRafidi Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2009
That's right :D

This little series of work you're doing is getting really enjoyable!
Lovely contrast between the two brothers' heights
Imson Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2009
More on the way too. Well, probably at least.
