It’s now officially my Birthday! (20th July), this time, I’ve taken a bit of fun inspiration from gaming nostalgia to help my creative juices – Mario. I used to play Super Mario games in my younger days, and I’m now looking forward to playing #SuperMarioMaker2 on my new Nintendo Switch for my Birthday this Saturday to cheer myself up.
I’m excited because Super Mario Maker has older styles of Mario in it, and I love the Super Mario World and Super Mario Bros 3 themes the most… very nostalgic and fun. I’m torn between the two, but right now, I’m in love with SMB3. That style is bringing out the inspiration juices in me.
I decided to draw these ACEO’s in the style of SMB3 to re-spark my love of the retro style, but also to translate that into art so that I may get a bit more excited about drawing in general like I used to feel before. They’re trading card sized – 6.5cm x 9cm, drawn in inks. Hope you like these!
Disclaimer: This post is fan art related, I did draw these little “Tiny Treasures”, however, I do not intend to infringe any copyright. These are just for fun. Mario is official intellectual property of Nintendo.
