Jump Man by NextGrandcross Jump Man by NextGrandcross
Felt like drawing something Non-Sonic for a change. And who better than the King of the Video Game Industry, the world renowned Super Mario!

I haven't drew Mario in ages. I can do better than this folks, so expect more Mario stuff in the future.


Gah, how I urge for a 3DS so I can play Mario Kart 7, I'm crazy for Mario kart.

Jumpman was the original name they gave Mario. Look up a game called "Donkey Kong."

Maybe that's how Mario would look if Archie Comics gave him a comic of his own!

"Jump Man" haha oldies video games XD
I wonder why they stopped calling him Jump Man and game the name "Mario"? hmm... anyway yeah when you have drawn something for a long time, it starts to fade ,but the skill isn't completely gone :3
I would really like to see more of this too ^^

They named him Mario because in the US, Nintendo of America didn't want to call him "Jumpman." They wanted a name that Americans could relate with, and an employee pointed out that Mario looked like the landlord of their office, "Mario Segali."

Mario Segali was Italian, so not only did Mario get his name, but he also got his nationality from him!

Ironically, my first Mario game was Super Mario 64. I've been in love with our favorite Goomba-stompin' plumber hero since then :D
I'm getting a 3DS tomorrow, so I'll be able to get Mario Kart 7, as well as Ocarina of Time. Can't wait! :excited:

Nice, the long-limbed proportions kinda make him look a bit Sonic-y, but not to Sonic-y. ;) Really great work on the M-man. Nice shading to.

i noticed you draw his fingers alot longer than that of most other mario art i've seen. i think for me its just easier to draw hands like that. what do you think?

You should do a Mario and Sonic back-to-back drawing, that would be KILLER! Maybe for a Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games piece or something. Great job on Mario by the way!!

Nintendo would've join with archie comics if they hadn't just book it but no they chickened out because they are way protective to the franchise but sega not a problem at least they don't regret having the comics itself to be made unlike nintendo but oh well.

If Tracy Yardley ever illustrated a Mario comic book series, this is probably what it would look like.
Of course, that's impossible right? :D This is probably the closest we're getting to that kind of thing.
Oh yeah,INSTANT FAVE! :lol:

Though some of those new characters are just weird choices. Especially Metal Mario. It doesn't make sense to me. If that were SHADOW Mario, maybe...

I have to ask, which game does Metal Mario even COME from?! I know you can be metal in Brawl, and yeah, it was some kind of power-up in 64 (right?) but there was never an actual separate character from Mario called Metal Mario, at least to my knowledge.
I think they should change that to Cosmic Mario from Galaxy or something, at least Cosmic Mario was a separate entity from Mario...

Well, as a power-up, Metal Mario first appeared in Super Mario 64. But as a character, he first appeared in either Mario Golf or Super Smash Bros.

Ah, but in Super Smash Bros. he was just an alternate version of Mario, was he not? :)
And, I didn't know about the Mario Golf appearance. I'm looking that up on youtube right now.
