Born in Brooklyn by TheBourgyman Born in Brooklyn by TheBourgyman
OMG Mario Fanart!! *party time*


Here's a picture I particularly liked working on : it depicts Mario on his natal Brooklyn, ideally before he landed in the Mushroom Kingdom. I'm aware of the fact I didn't use the old colour scheme on a scene that particularly asks for it, but after a couple trials at different states in the colouring process I thoroughly hated how it looked like, so I just gave up. Anyway the sepia look make the colours fade a bit so it's not too much of an issue. I used a few references to get the Brooklyn-like background acceptable, but most of the infrastructures here are fictive.


This thingie is completely drawn in Adobe Illustrator, then brought into Adobe Photoshop for the colouring job.


P.S.: I know there are a lot of contentiousness surrounding Mario's origins, as to know if he's born in Brooklyn or in The Mushroom Kingdom. I ask you to keep that topic at a minimum, please. I don't wanna start a debate. Just comment on the pic, and everyone will be happy. Thanks.


Enjoy!

I like the Brooklyn theory more because:
1. He's been that way since 1983 (until 1995?)
2. Baby Mario is a different character (why does he appear with Mario in the spinoffs?).
3. Babies do not come with storks. I bet the people at Nintendo received the WRONG talk. (A.K.A. "Where do babies come from?")
4. IT'S THE SUPER MARIO BROS. SUPER SHOW! (90's kids would orgasm at the nostalgia)
5. If the MK only has mushroom people, THEN WHY WOULD HE BE BORN THERE? (Nintendo: 'CAUSE FUCK LOGIC!)
(6. Because Mario Bros. (1983).)

My theory he was born in the MK, but was brought to brooklyn to be safe from the koopas.
