I knew that I wanted to make some pixel art pieces that featured one of the most beloved characters of all time but I was having a hard time deciding on which sprite. After some searching I decided to create the Raccoon Suit Mario in flight. He’s whimsical, he’s flying, he has a tail…it’s pretty much as good as it gets. After Mario was created I got the Mario 3 sprite bug! The sprites are so wonderful and full of memories that I started to do more pieces. The goomba was next, then the Boo (thanks to my friend Brendan for insisting I make it), then the question mark box and finally the 1UP mushroom. I think the dark outline of pixels makes the pieces really stand out when mounted on a wall. I found the green stain for the 1up mushroom at an unfinished furniture store and I think the green turned out great!
Like what you see? Want to buy one to make your home more delightful? Easy!
@8bitwood and we’ll get the ball rolling!
Thanks to my friends Ryan, Kristina, Aaron, Anet and Jake for modeling the various pieces!
