Mushroom Revolution by KidNotorious Mushroom Revolution by KidNotorious
Boy have I been waiting to post this one!


I had been trying of and on to draw my own version of the Mario gang with the only problem being that I would only think of tackling the task when tagging along with a friend who's group of friends were all gamers... that went on for maybe a couple of years with no success.

Then one night out at the theater when Watchmen came out Hawt Girl (yes, the very same Hawt Girl that I'm always drawing) asked me to draw a picture of Mario for her friend Liliana and I said "sure, I'll knock out a good one for you tomorrow"... it turns out that's all the motivation I really needed, I'm always at my best when I feel that I'm drawing something for someone and the very next morning I knocked out this sketch.

I knew from the moment that I drew this picture that I couldn't post the lines here. The hastily drawn Princess Peach I drew years ago for Anime Vegas has to be the most requested picture in my gallery that colorists have wanted to take a stab at and I just couldn't stand the thought of seeing the bright video game colors on this picture (which has already happened a couple of times with a separate Mario that Ive' drawn) when I drew the brothers here to be a bit more gritty, they are plumbers after all.
So there was only one man for the job! > :iconcopperthistle:


One of the unexpected effects was that after seeing the colors on this picture and reading the comments on it in Thistle's gallery was that a Pandora's Box of repressed memories from my childhood was opened.
I'll share a couple of those memories with you here > [link] & [link]

Hope you like it.

Well done. Clean sharp lines, and a coloring job that respects the 8bit roots. I like the diversion from the atypical goofball representation of Mario.

There's a notable God Father feeling to Mario in this, with Peach glammed up like the Don's girl, and what is easily the most bad ass version of Yoshi I've seen. Hard to believe he lays eggs :P

Nice job.

Well, it's drawn traditionally and colored digitally, makes for a good mix.
Copperthistle always has a nice organic quality to his color work.

This is just awesome. I grew up with the mario bros and it's great to see them all freshly redone and cool looking. It's like, I grew up, and then so did the characters I grew up with. Nostalgia meets coming of age.

BTW, that yoshi looks mean

Mario looks tough as can be.
Luigi looks @#$%ing BAD$#@!!
Peach looks like a slut.
Yoshi looks beastly.
And Toad looks like he'll eat your face off!

I LUVS IT! :D

One of my favorite personalized Mario's. All of the characters look awesome and the sky looks cool with the pixelized clouds. Not sure if I like the shadow's though... Kinda blocky and they draw your attention.

Peach's smoking in that new outfit, and that Yoshi in the background is the icing on the cake.
