Pixel Series // Raccoon Mario
Project 365 // Day 136
This is a pixel style rendition of Nintendo's mascot and quite possibly the most recognized and loved video game character ever created – Mario. There isn't a lot I can say that hasn't already been said by many, but Super Mario 3 was one of most vibrant memories growing up with the original NES. For this shot I wanted to recreate a little bit of the look of that classic game, using yellow as a dominant color, since the original packaging was all yellow.
This figure was hand-crafted from perler beads by a very talented local artist.
