Don't forget my twitter for news on next works [link]

Hm hm ! Some of you are going to be a little surprised here i guess lol.

I wanted to try something really faithful to the original this time, no realistic setting here. I firmly kept the plane floor and the blank background (well almost^^).

It's really an experimentation at what would be something stylized and HD with the original game setting. I'm not really happy with it, as i'm not really skilled for this, but anyway...

If i was artistic director, and i could hire, or invocate artists, i would have :iconerwinsart: or :iconken-wong: (particularly this art [link] to work on this! But anyway, it was fun to do.

Though Orioto chose this time for a different, more simple technique, it does tend to work in his disfavour, as well in his favour.

Many followers we're expecting something 'traditional' from Orioto, as his work comes as a surprise every time. When i first saw this work, i - as some more of us might have felt - felt dissapointed. Mainly because Orioto's traditional style isn't really used here. The fact that this artwork isn't that different from the looks with the original, makes for a less impressive impact.

It actually doesn't look like a remake this time, but more, just a piece of 2D art. I feel that they're could've been done a lot more, starting off with the background; it's not as detailed as it could be. The blocks have they're 'unique' style, but Nintendo's own 2D style over-shadows Orioto's to be honest.

There are also some positive things; being so overwhelmed every time by Orioto and his make-overs sets a new bar for his next work. I think i (we) need to step a bit back, and accept that some things are meant to be simplistic once in a while, and this artwork is a great example. Though not as spectacular as previous artwork, i still see this as going down memory lane, but not with the 'wow!' effect.

Nintendo should be so lucky as to have you on their payroll. You'd breathe new life into old franchises, with the art alone.
