True Faces of Mario

by Steve Napierski to Images

It’s really interesting just how different the various incarnations of Mario look. Very interesting concept.

So for this project, the artist doubled the scale of the original, ignored the official artworks and box art, mirrored the original color schemes, and tried to preserve as much likeness to the shapes as possible. Personally, I feel he did a very good job doing just that.

I now want Nintendo to create a New Super Mario All-Stars using these sprites.

    Super Mario All Stars (SNES) didn’t feature “Wrecking Crew”, neither “Mario Bros” (which was later overused in the GBA versions).

    Else, I’d be totally up for it. As long as we can switch to “classic NES” mode.

    Super Mario World Mario looks a little like Tim from Braid.
