partial zoom Mario Mural WIP by Don Benito L by DonBetinoL partial zoom Mario Mural WIP by Don Benito L by DonBetinoL
So only a very select few people know about this... but basically just about all the stuff I've upped on deviantArt so far has been all a part of one big mural project. Just a little project I thought I would try to do for fun in my spare time, whenever I have any.

However, I haven't had much time to work on it lately, and being busy with work and studying for exams and being busy with life in general, I just haven't been able to put as much time into this as I would like to. I anticipated being done with the whole thing by this year, but not sure that is going to happen, and seeing as I'm going to be extremely busy in the near future, this project probably won't get done for quite a while. Sad face :(

So while I was going to wait till the project was completed to make the big reveal, I decided to just show what I have so far as a WIP! Might as well share what I've got going... If I waited till I was finished, that would probably take years.

Here's a more closely zoomed in portion of the mural.

Here's the link to the whole shebang, mostly white space for now but i have more or less a general idea how it is going to
Here it is zoomed out just a bit more:
Here's a zoom in of the star field above mario:

Used Photoshop CS5
No custom brushes. I'm a photoshop noob, don't even know how to do that :/


Very helpful wiki, and looked at a lot of their images for basically every single Mario Character in the mural.

Ran into this a while ago, inspired my take on Bowser…

Used as reference for Rosalina:…

Used as reference for the shadow queen…

Referenced works by Titian informed overall composition……

Am I the only one who thinks Mario looks like Captain Marva?
