Super Mario Land by JOSHDILISI Super Mario Land by JOSHDILISI
was just sitting in class today and had a random burst of inspiration to draw Super Mario Land for some reason, this picture was a challenge mainly due to the fact that i was trying to be respectful to the Gameboy's color pallet and was only able to use 4 colors to draw this. The main theme music for this game has to be one of my favorite themes of all time, i just find it to be really catchy :)

Man, I always played this Mario game. One of my most favourite Game Boy games, as well as Mario games. :D

Yeah, I think the music is really catchy too, and love how they added more stuff after finishing the game for the first one... XDDD

Wow!  Freaking love this a lot!  Used to play this game soo much back on my Gameboy when out and about as a kid (along with a lot of tetris and mario picross lol).  Really like your color choice to match the theme of the game itself!  And your drawing is really clean and well done.  :)

Nice! I like the simplified style, (true to the game's graphics) and you did a good job making the colors look very Gameboy-like.

Some people tend to bash the original Gameboy, or think it's highly-outdated due to it's lack of color. Regardless, I remember as a kid looking into that green LCD screen for the first time, playing Super Mario Land, and remembering how awesome it was.
The Gameboy had some epic games, and I have quite a few of them on my 3DS now. (Thanks to Virtual Console.)
