Here we have another Mario themed painting. This time I went with a Goomba instead of another power up because once you’ve done the Mushroom and the Blue Shell there rest are all derivatives or less interesting. I like how this turned out but if I were to do it again, I’d aim for a more realistic feel and less of a cartoony look to it. Not easy with a Goomba, of course, but I like a challenge. As usual, this was painting in Manga Studio on a Wacom Tablet. Speed painting vid below.
This is another nerd painting, but I enjoyed doing my Power Mushroom so much, I had to return for the classic Blue Shell. Truth is, I hated this one when I painted it but that was about 24 hours about and today I feel a lot happier with it. Again, painted in Manga Studio with the oil paint brushes. The original video took around an hour and a half. Check out the vid below to see this painting right from the bank page!
