Mario World by Orioto Mario World by Orioto
UPDATE : There is a new version (stylized mario and a lot more details)

For the wallpapers, [link] or find it on the internet ;)

See ya all !

Second Mario take !

I'm feeling i progress and it's a good thing. I really wanted to have a painted "ghibli style" background, and to re-imagine the Mario World from scratch (and not from a screen of the game).

I studied a lot of nature painting to have this result, the mood etc... ! I hope you like it^^

ps : He he THX for the DD :P But i realize everytime i don't mention it, people believe it's a painting from scratch ! As usual, (and as it will always be), that's a matte painting and painting over with some painted elements !

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-10-29
Mario World by *Orioto. From the suggester: "A fantastic piece of fanart for any video game fans - it's really wonderful to see this sort of art especially involving an iconic character like Mario. That and the piece is fantastically painted as well - it's a great piece of art through and through." ( Suggested by dmy-gfx and Featured by aunjuli )
This is truly Beautiful work! I love the colours, almost looks like a mario version of Charles Monnet! I love it! :D

Im digging the cloudy almost hazy background, like fog, so mario is on a morning romp through the mushroom kingdom eh?

His pose looks fun! And the little goombas are just waiting for it arent they? hehe. I love this, its amazing! Would be nice to know what media/tools you used for it :)

I also love the tones, shading and light effects, such as the pipes, and the coins! The whole look of it reminds me a little of a more realistic mario game.. unlike its traditional counterpart, this is a nice blend of nice realistic world colours, i love it!

Amazing work! And congrats on the daily dev! :clap:
This deserves an instant super fav! :+fav:

Wowie...this is amazing!
it's as if i'm really playing the game!!!
ok, so what i really like is that, you used great detale in your
picture. I also really like how you made the picture look
soft, and how you made it look foggy in the backround! that's
really well made and put together. What I really like the most
is, how you made the setting of this picture. I love all of it
but, what really cought my eye was how you made it look
more realistic:D

Well, there is nothing more to say because, let's just say it's
well made and it's most deffinetly BEAUTIFUL! :iconeeeeeplz:

Great Job and keep up the good work! :hug:

nannon1 Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I think this is beautiful! I can definitely see the Ghibli style in this image. I want to go skipping along with Mario too. I do prefer the update, however probably because the colours are a tad richer. Wonderful!

Great painting! :D The picture almost seems mystical, like Mario's walking over an ancient underground chamber, with the pipes as gateways to it. Great job!
DjFuZion Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012
Personally, I prefer the original work. Still, this is pretty stunning too.
