Mario was the theme for this classic. The client was pretty specific on what they wanted, the challenge was to recreate it. The one major task involved was the heavy recreation of the backgrounds from the new super mario bros Wii game. They wanted Big Bowser and little mario. All backgrounds in this art were hand painted and recreated to get the right effect, The red lava and the cave walls set the mood, they make the characters POP. Love the idea, loved the game.
