The Very First Time by The-Quill-Warrior The Very First Time by The-Quill-Warrior
Oh yeah, fan art... I still do that, don't I? X3

Yes, I realised how little I've done works like this since I made my new channel, but even though I want to put more time and focus into my own stories, I'll try to fit some time in to draw fan art of games, TV shows, or films and such.

By the way, if you're wondering what's up with Mario and Peach's clothes, take a look at their sprites in the NES game, "Super Mario Bros."

Drawn by me, *The-Quill-Warrior :iconthe-quill-warrior:

Oh. My. God. Very Interesting! I honestly thought i would never see anything like this, but you have bypassed my expectations on something like this by alot! I honestly thought I was the only one who still cared about SMB. but no! Anyways, Mario's pose is pretty cool, and you got the clothes spot-on! The only thing that is missing is a couple of warp pipes, some Mushroom Retainers, and Luigi, but other than that, this is really fantastic! I like Peach's floatig hearts! The background is really dynamic. Basically, you get a 20/5 and this is the most amazing Mario-related thing ever!

A perfect blend between old and new, this portrait clearly shows that the original Super Mario Bros. has withstood the test of time and will forever be remembered as the game that started it all.

Blending Mario's old design with Bowser's new portrayal, while mixing Peach (or rather Princess Toadstool) with her current and older look shows how the series has changed over the years, and the smaller details, such as the chain links breaking, the stand for the axe, and the destructive, cloudy landscape in the background make this art stand out from the other tributes made to this timeless classic.

I remember being introduced to the original Super Mario Bros. thanks to Super Mario All-Stars on the SNES (I was too young for the NES), and it quickly became a favorite game of mine. This work brings back memories. Good memories.

My poor brain cannot hold up to this awesomeness and nostalgia. Mario first used a hammer, then an axe, at the final he decided to go unarmed with his jumping ability. Looking at this art shows me how much time I've spent for the badass Mario.
Why there is such a big hole in the castle? Did Bowser throw that many hammers and fireballs at the wall?XD

Thank you! That huge hole in the wall is mainly there for atmosphere. :D

Oh my freakin' goodness!!! :wow:
This some awesome coloring and shading buddy! :D
I can tell this took quite a long while with the background and everything! C:
I especially love, once again, the shading as if you used a paintbrush. How did you create this effect? I really wish to make shading like that! :noes:

Thank you! I just used a standard fuzzy round paintbrush in Photoshop with the Flow meter set to a mid-percentage; say 60-80%.
To be honest, I don't remember exactly how I did it because it's been a long time since I did this kind of shading.

You're welcome! ^^
Hmm, so you pretty much have to tweak with the brush settings, huh?
I kinda figured that, although it may take quite a while to figure it out. ^^;
Anyways, thanks for the advice. :D

It's not that hard to figure out. You'll get the hang of it. :)

Well, to be honest, I have tried messing with the settings before, just a little trial and error. XD
But try, try, try again; it just takes a little imagination. =p
