When shading, I suggest using complementary colors, not just simple darker versions of colors, and not black. For yellow, use like a dark purple (lightly). For reds, try greens. Blues, use oranges. And so on.

Thanks for the tip! I'll try this from now on and see how to works.

It's been quite a while, but here's some new creations:



My current avatar, up close and pixely.



The dark blue, mirrored version.



My previous avatar, which I essentially never finished. You can see the most green around the hand and egg area.

Aaaand that's about it! Although I do have a sneak peek for a WIP recolor of the Piranha Plant SSBU art:



Say hello to the Putrid Piranha, in all its glory WIP ugliness!
Theme change?  *hint hint, wink wink*

I was going to change to Merry Moldo for the holidays; maybe next year. Here's the badly edited GIMP creation I had prepared for Christmas:



The Santa hat was ripped straight from the Santa Mario artwork I found on the Wiki.

So after seeing the (awful; official, but awful) updated BIS artwork of Bowser, I changed the OG artwork into Bowser's supposed bro., whose definitely-creative-name happens to be...Blue Bowser.

Yeah.

Colors are taken from the Sm4sh alt. art.

EDIT: New art!

New paper-drawn art!



I decided to make up for pink Mario by making normal Mario! I used a thinner tipped pen for Mario's head. And also, yes, the left hand was intended to face that way. Now that I look at it I'm kinda put off. Otherwise, I'm happy with how it turned out.

Up next, a crossover!



For those unfamiliar with the comic series Peanuts, this is one strange site. For those familiar...actually this is a strange site. This is Yoshi looking at the bird Woodstock, very confused as to why this little yellow bird has landed on his nose.

I haven't taken LGM's advice to heart yet (because I forgot to write it down XD), but I hope you enjoy these! Tell me any advice, criticism, or just plain comments about it.

I know how it feels to draw hands and fingers Moldo.

Just as a lot of us do it and keep yapping, always try to either place yourself in front of a mirror and do a pose similar to the one you need to draw or just position your own hand in front of you to be able to know how to draw it right. You could also use official artwork of Mario with his hand tilted that way, so that works too. The point is, and it has been said numerous times by many people on this forum, it's important to use reference.

It does look pretty good, though, nice work!

I'm fiddling with some official Mario artwork in an attempt to revitalize my art thread.

...
Hey.
I'm back.




I got the (basically) right Pink color! Compare the two pics above (the bottom one isn't mine, obviously)!

Yeah, the egg came out weird. It isn't supposed to to look fuzzy, like the Yoshi.

Mario's ears are tinnny. Remember, they're a little taller than they are wide, and if you look at a picture of Mario, top of the ears correspond with the top of the eyes, bottom of the ears correspond with the bottom of the nose. Also, since you're doing perspective, less of the left side should show, so you shouldn't be seeing the hair, and the ears should either be not visible or just barely visible.

Overalls wrap around the body, so just draw a curve where the red meets the blue, under the armpit, and have the overall straps curve over the shoulder too.

But this is pretty cute, I hope you draw more Marios! :)

Speaking of which, this is an older creation; since it involves Weegee, I figured I would post it now that L64DD's back:



It never really was finished (apparent in the pants and left arm), but it's some Luigi's Mansion artwork recolored to be Fire Luigi.
I have some other stuff but it'll have to be posted later.

Sorry for the long bump, but I realized that I posted some drawings on my Twitter a while back and didn't post them here!

Professor E. Gadd (holding a F.L.U.D.D. box)


The Toad Brigade Crew (Purple/Mail Toad on bottom left btw; the color was washed out)


Still not good with arms (most evident with Hint/Blue Toad's left arm, stretched more than it should be), but I think I've been getting better (kinda) since I drew these.

EDIT: You can also see some rejected drawings for the Toad Brigade (Yellow Toad next to Green Toad; Captain Toad on the bottom)
