Here I am! Rock you like an hurricane! (or so goes the song) Once again I submit something to deviantart
This time around I portraied a unique scene from the game New Super Mario Bros. Wii,and what's more interesting is that I had this fanart completed on last december but because of a contest wich I was in with this illustration and of obvious spoiler content issues, only now it's being released!
Despite the showdown between Mario and Bowser being the center theme of this piece I tried to go back to the old nes days displaying the characters in similar stances(ex.Luigi and the princess running away from Bowser) with the original artwork of the last page of the instruction booklet of Super Mario Bros.3! I hope you all enjoy it !! XD

Amazing job on the art style; really did remind me of the style found in the instruction manuals from the remakes in the Super Mario Advance series. Love the way you did the fire effects, and just the overall piece. :D

I remember this boss. I remember when I defeated him with a fireflower. I thought I won, but then I realized it was too easy, that's when that stupid magikoopa turned bowser into a giant and the "doom and gloom" music began playing. Then I realized I was fucked.

OK this is soooo cool. But did it ever come to mind that this is a spoiler to people who haven't even played the game?! You're not a bad guy. though. Honestly, where are people like you in this world?! But next time, to no offense, think before you post. You just showed the thing every spoiler-hater dislikes:final boss spoilers. But keep up the good work.

That's an issue that made me wait for awhile until posting this rendition and still concerns me. So I thought it would be okey after months the game came out, but still I totally understand your point of view and I'm sorry if I spoiled the ending to you and to others. It never was my goal to ruin your experience. I only wanted to share my excitment for that segment of the game with all of you.
But still I'm glad you enjoyed this piece, so thanks for your comment!
