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.

This is really cool.  I like how you used the sprite colors.  You also really captured the feeling of Bowser's frustrated anger panic at being bested by this no-name plumber. :)

They need to bring the axe back. Pushing a button just doesn't have the same feel to it.

Yeah, I know I never played the original game, but the axe is STILL MORE AWESOME THAN A MEASLY BUTTON!
