    This was posted on Joystiq recently, saw it on CAG again today which reminded me that I needed to post it here.

    Thoughts? It seemed as though several posters around the other places I have seen this picture posted actually responded negatively. I think it's pretty cool, has a darker more intense feel to it.

    I don't like the style of art, but the picture itself is not that bad.

    What Kickback said.

    The art is kinda messy. The picture in and of itself is nothing short of win.

    I think it's stupid. I get so frustrated and sick by the tendency among gamers and comic artists to think that everything has to be "mature" and "dark" and all badass to be worthwhile. Perhaps that motivation wasn't the intent for the artist, but it still combines both into one giant pet peeve for me.

    I'm not saying that dark subject matter doesn't have a value and a place, but I really, really hate with a passion when they bleed over into things they don't belong in (like Mario).

    Nothing against you for liking it Deefuzz. We're all entitled to an opinion. :)

    I think the dark tone for such silly subject matter is pretty funny.
    However, I wonder what exactly Bowser did to Peach.

    Anyway, didn't the artist play Super Paper Mario?
    They're all friends now.

    +1 The tone just doesn't suit Mario tbh.

    Mario's head was hard as hell to find, but once I did the picture was pretty badass.

    That's pretty cool, but I'm kinda with KD on this. One of the reasons I like Mario so much is that the franchise is so goofy and (relatively speaking) nonviolent.

    I think the pencils are great, but the color job (apparently done by the friend or something) is awful. I'd rather see the raw pencils or someone who was interested in inking and coloring it properly post a new version.

    Subject wise? I don't think it's so "dark" to immediately drop into the "mature" category. It's not like it's "Mcfarlane's Mario" or something with Peach bound and gagged with a ball in her mouth, Mario shirtless and wielding a sci-fi flame-thrower attacking Bowser who is some giant penis monster.

    The designs are rather faithful, just made a little more serious.

    I like it a lot, actually.

    thats not that cool as that other mario art i saw with mario and princess sitting on one of them floating bricks and you can see pipes and eater plants in the background, which kinda looked like new jersey. that was cool. it was very painterly.

    It's all good man, I understand where you are coming from, and I respect your opinion.

    Didn't want to post something that would frustrate you though. :)
