Mario and Luigi by Virmont89 Mario and Luigi by Virmont89
I cut out just the two of them becuz i like how they turned out, that and it kind of looks like they're a sticker with a glittery background.

Mario and Luigi (c) Nintendo

It's a very emotional piece. I don't know what you originally intended, but to me it suggests what the brothers feel after an unsuccessful game. Disappointment, shame, sorrow, and a yearning to try again, though an uncertainty whether they could be successful again.

The colors perhaps are a bit strong, especially in the brothers' faces, which look very red almost to the point of sunburn. Mario's left leg seems a bit off in its intersection with the right; perhaps hiding the foot a little more behind the right leg would give a better sense that he's sitting with one leg crossed.
What do you think?

Okay just so you know; I wrote a huge long critique then dA exited out of this page and now I have to start again!
I really like this piece, I think it really looks great, and you've put a lot of thought into it! This really struck out as I was looking at some art of yours, and it was definitely worth clicking on! I really like the silver bits of the edges, I've always liked the shiny backing on stickers!
Scores;
Vision: I gave you a 4½/5 for vision, because I think you had a really good vision of what you wanted this to look like, and I actually have a vision of what you wanted it to look like, and it takes work to get both minds working on the same piece of art!
Originality: I gave you a 4½/5 for this section because I really like how you've taken two original characters and put emotion and thought into recreating a different version, in your own style!
Technique: I really quite like the shading, as it plays a huge part in the main picture, and how people see it!
Impact: 5/5 for impact, because this is a really great piece and I really do love the work and effort you've put into it!
Overall score: 17/20
Here is some useful feedback for next time:
-Are the faces meant to be as red as they are? Maybe toning down the colour shade a bit might help make them look a bit more realistic.
-Some of the feet and leg poses are't quite right in dynamics, you could maybe just look at that for a next time?
-Maybe a little lighter on the heavy colour, and some more shading, or was it meant to be dark and heavy? It would be interesting to see the difference!
Overall Comment: I really like this work, and many others of yours, so well done!

Looking at this is making me thinking of this being an ending for an anime.

I've always had theories on the boys' past when growing up.

here are the songs i think of when looking at this:

:D My theory on their past was that they did have a good childhood *nobody really bullied them..except wario and waluigi from time to time* though their guardians sorta had high expectations on the boys *especially mario being the oldest and etc.* and they were exposed to a lot of things *since living in N.Y...and not exactly the safest place* Then as time grew on They still had a good life though they had problems with a friend's stuck up cousin at times. The jerk would just mock them for what they did for a living saying they'll never amount to nothing. The boys knew that wasn't true *cause heroes usually never give up on finding something better in their lives* and then when they were fixing one of their aunts plumbing a light came out and then dragged them into the MK.

What started it was both Luigi and Mario started getting memories of their early past *memories that had been long forgotten or erased* and Luigi often dreamed of a kingdom in flames and people screaming and needing help.
Ex:
Luigi: huh??? WHAT THE!??? *see's a castle burning and thousands of people screaming trying to get away, and then some shadowy creatures are rising* W-WHAT'S GOING ON!!?????

As for Mario he kept seeing a blonde girl *Peach* begging for his help.

And then...the rest you know.
