Firaga Mario by VariaZim Firaga Mario by VariaZim
This is actually deviations #100!
I'm so slow

I originally started drawing Samus and then somehow this popped into my head. I've fallen in love with fire, it's so challenging to draw but it's so rewarding~

Also, Mario... It's probably not surprising that this was inspired by Brawl. XD

Totally messed up the eyes... oh well
Edit: Changed the eyes a bit, dislike them slightly less now

Well done! I hope you didn't totally abandon Samus, though...

I haven't had time for digital painting because of school :/

But no, I made this (though this is an unfinished version) [link] for an anatomy project. And I'm making a high-poly model of Samus' gunship for my 3D portfolio. Super Metroid is still my favourite video game :p

Brawl?

Oh! The final smash eyes. I see it now.

It's such a beautiful piece, now. I especially love that detail on his mustache.

Thanks for reminding me that, for every amazing Mario fanart, there's always more to see!

I think it was replaying Mario galaxy that inspired me to make this. I really dig Mario's fire-flower colours.

I admit, I missed the Fire Flower when it was gone from the games, good thing it's back nowadays.
