Really amazing.
The cutest beings of the Mushroom World are the good Koopas. I have made many artworks with those cute turtles.
With time, i realised, the Koopas are not truly enemies of Mario, but rather the victims of Bowser cruelty and bad tyranny.
All good Koopas lives in the Turtle Valley near Toad Town, and their greatest enemy is Bowser!
I hope you like it.

This is what Mario's battle with Bowser in the last level of Super Mario 64 should look like.

Oh, man, so epic! You have a great painting style!
TMystery Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2011
Wow... it's a very dramatic scene. Bowser wants blood, Mario wants him dead.

Giving Bowser no eye pupils shows how determined and deadly he is - Also I like Mario's POV, as the audience is clearly in Mario's position

Where do I even begin with this?

I am in love with the angle. Bowser just has an awesome look to him. The way you did the stars and Bowsers fireball look realistic. I also love dust and clouds as they are shaded appropriately shaded and well approached. Awesome shading, too. I'm guessing...photoshop?

Nice job, overall.
SkullKidGirl Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
How EPIC is that? O.e
KoopaKrazy85 Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ah, there will never be enough "Mario and Bowser final stand-off" pictures, their nature alone is enough to make it epic, but this is beyond the standard of such a pic :D the lighting alone blows me away, like seriously, wow!

bowser comin' out of the clouds like that, his eyes glowing, stepping toward his foe, showing off those powerful claws, wild mane blowing in the cold air, flames forming in the back of his throat, ready to torch Mario - it's a sight to behold, he really is just classic bowser :D just bowser in all his bowser-i-ness!! :lol:

and I love how Mario's standing, fists out and at the ready, strong stance, prepared to leap up and give ol' koopa stoopa the smack-down, as always :D

these two characters alone are enough to make this pic awesome, but the smoke/dust cloud looming, and the fireballs falling from the darkened sky and the incredible dramatic camera angle REALLY up the ante! everything here is simply mind-blowing, the fire and clouds look so good, it's just so.... I don't even know, I just know it's DAMN GOOD, MAN IT'S AMAZING!!! and again, the lighting on BOTH characters, even if there's more of it on Bowser, making him look almighty and unbeatable, the strength and placement of the light on Mario is perfect, and the angle (again I know I've kinda mentioned this XD) just adds that bit of equality in how powerful each of them look.

reminds me so much of facing bowser in SMG1, I can here the final boss music playing and the tyrannical koopa king steps forth to confront his archrival, thinking once again that he has the upper hand :D my god, this is like a summary of everything I love about Mario and Bowser's rivalry, it's just epic XD
