The Creation of Mario by TsaoShin The Creation of Mario by TsaoShin
Shigeru Miyamoto creates Mario in a parody of Michelangelo's "Creation of Adam" from the Sistine Chapel.

Oh boy! What a journey on this drawing. I was joking with my best friend around about doing a drawing like this and after a few ideas of doing classic game characters in well known masterpieces, we came up with this crazy idea.

I know there's quite a few inaccurate attributions to Miyamoto on some of the characters represented here but I really wanted him to be surrounded by some of Nintendo's finest :iconhurrhurrplz:.

I'm aware that I'm also missing some females like Pauline from the original Donkey Kong but it was getting a bit crowded in that little swarm so I kept it limited to some of the more recognizable characters.

From left to right: Mario, Midna, Shigeru Miyamoto, Daisy, Princess Peach, Toadette, Zelda and Birdo. Lower row: Rosalina and Samus.

The leaf is from Super Mario Bros. 3. It's the one that grants you the raccoon tail.

Had a lot of fun drawing this one out! Created in Adobe Photoshop CS4.

References for some poses from :iconalmudena-stock: and star brushes from :iconkuschelirmel-stock:

All characters depicted here are Nintendo.

From the suggester:
"I find this to be very hilarious. The shading, the concept, and the fact that it will cause stomach ruptures worldwide is enough to make me want to share this with everyone." ( Suggested by Jace-Z and Featured by rydi1689 )

Mario should eat a magic mushroom or something that makes him need a bigger fig leaf.

Did you know the pink egg shooter is actually a guy? According to the manual for the Mario Brothers on NES :D
