Married to competition by TheBourgyman Married to competition by TheBourgyman
Here's an interesting piece I never thought about submitting here before.


This is a commission I got a few months back from a guy who doesn't have an account here on DeviantART. It was intended to be printed and shown at his friend's wedding (the newlyweds are, of course, at the centre of this picture). The sides characters are the commissioner (the groomsman) and his girlfriend (the bridesmaid). The four of them like to play Mario Kart together, so you can pretty much make the connection here. :D


I didn't hear from the commissioner since the wedding's day passed, I hope everything went as planned for them!


Paint Tool SAI + Adobe Photoshop CS4. Can't remember how much time it took to make, but by looking at the karts I'd say I spent A LOOOOT of time on this.


A LOOOOOT.


Yup.


Enjoy!

Lol, my wife and I got married the day before Mario Kart Wii came out. I was at the Gamestop the next day to snag my reserve copy. My wife and I spent the day after the wedding packing for our honeymoon and playing Mario Kart Wii.

By the looks of the friction coming from the newly weds wheels, i'd say they share a spark together! :laughing:

I'm like 10 days late replying to this, sorry about that.

These karts came directly from the game. I had to take different screenshots from the game itself to be able to draw them so accurately. ^^;

Not really, the camera angles in Replay Mode (in Time Trial mode) are really random, I had to take 30-something pictures to get a few good shots of the kart from various angles.

The amount of detail is quite evident of how much time you must've put in this, and I can only imagine that this must've been a very, very special gift, considering how it incorporates what these people like to do together. Just goes to show how powerful of a game Mario Kart really is.

Aww, that's so cool! But I think that Double Dash was kinda better because you could have someone on the same kart. I liked that courses too.

Sorry for the late reply!

It would probably have been better given the "couple" context but the reason why the commissioner choose Mario Kart Wii, is because they are playing it online to keep in touch, something you can't do with DD. :)
