Super Mario Spikers by Nintendrawer Super Mario Spikers by Nintendrawer
Artwork based on a cancelled Mario sports game called, Super Mario Spikers ( [link] )

I personally love the gritty style from the Strikers games, so to have this again on another sports title would have been awesome! Instead we got Sports mix, which was ok-ish but kinda on the boring side...:shrug:

Anyways, I wanted to do the whole cast for this "game" but then I just decided to go with the main guy in the title. This originaly came to mind months ago, but it wasnt until today that I finally moved my ass lol ( [link] this helped~ )

Was trying something new here, so I hope it worked out well.

Mmm, I wish they continued to do this game as a love-letter/sequel to Super Mario Strikers.

Yep. Mario Sports Mix banged off of me pretty quick, I thought Hockey was fun, but it got boring quick. Basketball was a bit challenging, but it took to long. My faves are Dodgeball and Volleyball, on the bright side. They have party games, which makes the game a more fun experience for friends. It's sort of a casual Sports game.

Would have made an interesting game, but they didn't even release Super Mario Sluggers over in Europe, which was kind of a shame but hardly anyone here plays baseball... :D
And Mario Strikers is my favourite Mario Sports game! The gritty art style is awesome too, yes :D

Lol Strikers to Spikers. Neat idea. :D

Wait....


Seriously?! That was a CANCELLED game?! And moreover, it was once planned to be made by Next Level Games no less! :ohnoes: This is definite news to me. Goodness, what a waste of hard-core summer sporting with wrestling on top! Haha. Yeah Sports Mix was a bum mix all in all. I only liked dodge ball. Hockey was fun, but got boring very quick. Volleyball took DAMN long.

One thing is certain. You definitely gave Mario a rocking summer sport outfit. :D See, it's not only outfitted for the summer, but the design pattern screams, HARDCORE! lol Also, it's neat how you put his "M" emblem under his sandals. ;D The thick black outlines surrounding Mario's flaming spike sure are reminiscent of the Strikers art, so yes, you pulled off the "trying something new here." ;) On closer inspection, this type of skin blending is also new coming from you. :dance: It's a smooth balance of light and dark that doesn't contrast too sharply, and I'm speaking about this by looking at his arms, shirt and hair. :nod:

I do like how you pulled off the overall coloring. Oh and the flame does look a bit alive, since it's blazing up from underneath Mario's upper arm. =P

Seeing Mario and co. playing volleyball with some different suits(like SM STRIKERS).
(maybe daisy and peach in a bikini? :3)
Nah, anyway, mario sports mix was kinda boring.
Great art, though, loved the shading :D
