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.

This just look likes a mixing with 2D pixel sprites and 2D Paintings, just beautiful!

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

Great Work, maybe next week I will try to do a Draw with the Super Mario Theme :D

C'est mon jeu Nes préféré, cette peinture est tout simplement une oeuvre d'art qui retranscrit à la perfection le jeu d'origine.

Don't get me's good, but I don't think it has the same oomph as your other work.

Beat this game on my Wii twice in the last 2 weeks of December. Definitely one of my faves. :)
feeheelee Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2009
An odd one this. While it's very nice and obviously, as stated by Orioto himself, it is a bit of a departure from his previous works. This is probably my least favorite of all of them but it's still very cool and I do like the different direction. But I love the dream-like romanticized style of previous works. Orioto's works as we remember them not how they actually looked, it's how we see them in our minds thinking back to the good old days...

Hahah cute and awesome XD
bradjolly Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2009
its really weird seeing mario go from right to left. my brain has been programmed for him to go left to right. I'll be flipping this one before i use it as wallpaper...
gamesage Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2009
Can't post an actual critique but...
I think this is a bold new route and I like it. I think this stirs up emotions that make you remember playing this game for the first time.
A classic peace in a more classic kind of style I think.
I do feel that the background could have stood out more without taking away from the beautiful foreground here in this piece though.
But still this is goin' to be a fave from me and I think a lot of other people will be saving this piece as well.

It's a cool picture, but I liked the 'realistic' versions you were doing. :shrug:
C-Dave Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2009
Makes me feel like a kid again. Man, video games like this aren't made anymore, now you need 1080p resolutions, epic soundtrack and story. This game... simplest thing ever. Don't take this the wrong way, but this picture represents simplicity. Simple and easy entertainment. Good job, dude, big fan of your work.

Ah ah, excellent ! Un univers au final très différent de l'original, mais qui fonctionne pourtant parfaitement.

Dude, it's perfectly OK you want to try a new style but I have to say that I really miss the old one.
cbrucc Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
This piece stays true to the original design fairly well but I feel the problem with this is the coloring. One of the things the Mario franchise is known for is the use of color and this piece just doesn't capture the "Mario feeling", color wise. Other wise, it is well put togther piece.
Orioto Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
well it's the exact colors of the game actually ;)
cbrucc Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
haha yes they are, but they are toned down quite a bit. Except for the green that is.
NathanGreenx Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2009
epic, as usual

Good time.

I prefered your other ones much more, mostly because there was a very strong sense of depth.

This one seems really flat, maybe im just being picky because your other works rocked so much, but thats my 2cents :)
