Redesigning Super Mario Bros. Will Return Monday!

Gotta recharge over this weekend - That doesn't mean I'm going to stop working on the pieces...I'll be at work but gotta catch up on other stuff as well. Will definitely try my best to apply critiques over the last few days for the coming batch.

To make sure this isn't just a regular ol' blip, here's some art for you.

I did this a while back. In case you didn't know, MGS is my all time favorite series. Konami set up a special website where they had digital paintbrushes you could use to paint in the website various pieces of art for weekly contests they held. I only entered the first one, and my theme was "ninja". I didn't win, but I still enjoyed working on the piece.

My goal was to recreate the style one of my personal favorite artists, Yoji Shinkawa, who is also responsible for the now iconic Metal Gear art style and infuse a little bit of my own energy to boot.

After the Mario series, I have another, shorter series (should last a week, one a day) in mind but probably after a few weeks of Pokemon One a Day. Aaaand soon after all that is done, I'd love to tackle some sort of Metal Gear art series, but I have no idea what it could be. Any suggestions?

Oh, and also, I didn't want any lettering on the piece - Konami slapped the title and the subtitle for it on there for whatever reason...:P

Enjoy your weekends folks, see ya around TAY!
