A Bowser-Tatanga Alliance by TheBourgyman A Bowser-Tatanga Alliance by TheBourgyman
Commissionned by BrigadierDarman. He asked to have Bowser and Tatanga (the final boss from Super Mario Land) form an alliance, possibly to have a slighty better shot at destroying Mario or something. He asked for their respective armies to be included as well.

The commissioner also wanted to dedicate this picture to LightningRod728, who he first talked with about the idea, but couldn't work on it due to personal reasons. I hope things get better for you, man!

About 3 hours. Adobe Photoshop CS4 + Manga Studio 5 EX + Wacom Cintiq 21UX. Watch me on FacebookTumblrTwitter and Instagram!

Is this actually legal to do as take a commission of Nintendo. They infamously hate fan games and those are even free!

I love the way you drew Tatanga. He actually looks menacing! At least more menacing than his original look.

Strangely, could Tatanga kidnap (or Koopa-nap) Bowser?

I really like your art work i mean IT'S GREAT.

Tatanga, don't do it, don't do it!
He's evil, don't do it!

It's better not to put Torions around Tatanga... because he'll eat them

DON'T do it Tatanga! :iconnoeslaplz: DON'T you know what happened to Antasma? :iconmonkeywhoopsplz: Bowser shares victory with no one! 
:lol: This would be an amazing idea! I wish Nintendo would consider this! :iconyoshilaplz: Maybe things would work out better for Tatanga than they did for Antasma? Or maybe they should just bring Tatanga back for his 'own' game. :icondontunderstandplz:  Either way great piece! :iconyoshiwinplz:

Peach and Daisy are doomed!

This is so cool. Mario Land was one of my favorite Game Boy games, right up there with Link's Awakening, DuckTales, and Pokemon. 

I imagine this alliance would create a lot of havoc for the Mushroom Kingdom and Sarasaland. I can also imagine Daisy being none too happy with Tatanga going after her again...
kasden95 Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2016
This should totally happen in an upcoming Mario game.

I wish there is a Super Mario Land 4. The third one was all just Wario that started the Wario Land series.
TheBourgyman Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Super Mario 3D Land pretty much acts like a Super Mario Land 4 game, if you want my opinion.
MigBird Featured By Owner May 16, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Heaven help us all.
It's always kind of weird to see Tatanga artwork. He's so obscure and I mostly just know him for his sprite. Look at those eyebrows. Look at those ABS!!

Now imagine if Wart was there as well. It would be a team up of Mario's original villains. I don't know how it would work, but it would be amazing.
The-Rarispy Featured By Owner May 14, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
Wart was only in a dream, though.
Iwatchcartoons715 Featured By Owner May 14, 2016
Oh... That's actually a good point. So he would need to find a way to get out of the dreams.
reizosaurus-64 Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is a Shigeru's new idea :)
(actually not bad at all :) )
thundervette Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2016
according to Mario Land 2, Tatanga was hired by Wario to distract Mario so [Wario] can take over the Mushroom Kingdom. 
Cheine Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2016
Super Mario Land 2's manual never says that.
SuperMikey128 Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2016
Well, the Mushroom Kingdom and Sarasaland are both doomed.
DnMStarsi Featured By Owner May 20, 2016  Student General Artist
And that should be the next Mario and Luigi game! I doubt we'll get something like this in a mainstream game so make this into an M&L RPG!

This has gotta be the plot to the next Mario RPG!
sesshowmall Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2016  Student Artist
This would make an awesome Mario & Luigi RPG.

This is epically evil. Great work!

Wow, two leaders and their armies meet! :D

Je m'ennuie beaucoup du temps où Nintendo acceptait d'avoir un villain autre que Bowser ou Boweser Jr...

Now I have the urge to play SML.... Hopefully I still have my copy xD
LightningRod728 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2016   Digital Artist
Mario has enemies, even from worlds away. This would've been a great concept somewhere in Super Mario Galaxy.
Reinhold-Hoffmann Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2016
Excellent idea, perfectly executed.
Banjoenelbano Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2016  Student Interface Designer
I remember before Super Mario Galaxy came out I was convinced this was gonna happen, cause like the opening cinematic (which had been released as a trailer of sorts) showed Bowser having UFOs on his side and I was like "Where did he get those? Must have been Tatanga!" but then the game came out and there were Zero references to Tatanga
koopaul Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I bet Bowser would betray him at some point.
mergeritter Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Now all they need is Wart and his army and the bros. are screwed.

Ah, for the return of the Superball. :D

This concept would be perfect for any future game.

Oh, boy!

Looks like Mario and Luigi are gonna be working overtime to rescue both Peach AND Daisy!

Oh oh ça sent les ennuis XD
Titeufii Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2016
Ha ha ha. Dommage que Nintendo soit trop centré sur *Allons bêtement sauver Peach de Bowser, alors qu'elle a des capacités comme on l'a vu sur dans Smash Bros, dans Super Paper Mario et dans Mario 3D World*, et sur Harmonie, alors qu'il y a Daisy qui existe depuis un bon moment, et qu'on ne voit que dans les jeux Party, Sports et Karts.
A force, on en oublie les bons personnages qui pourraient supers intéressants, ainsi que des scénarios neuf, genre Mario 3D World AVEC Daisy JOUABLE ! Ou d'autres jeux AVEC Wario et Waluigi qui auraient un vrai rôle.

Enfin bref, ton dessin est génial.
