This picture reminds me of the days when I was an obsessed video gamer ― before I outgrew that medium upon realizing it was negatively affecting my attention span and sociability. Mario was my childhood idol, and through his countless adventures and sporting competitions, he taught me that there are lots of unfortunate ways to die, but you can avoid them if you stay strong in the midst of the biggest struggles and tests.
This tribute to the character is very clever, creative, attractive, and innovative. In fact, though this was created to commemorate his 25th, now over 30 years have passed since the game that defined Mario and made him a household name. Imagine the kinds of awards Mario would receive if there were to be a special ceremony celebrating his services to the Mushroom Kingdom! In addition to the Medal of Honor and commander membership in the Legion of Merit, he'd receive a LOT of Purple Hearts given all the lives he's lost for the sake of defending the land. And the first of these Purple Hearts would be a big one if given for all the hammer barrages and fire breath shots he's had to take from Bowser alone!
This picture is full of the glorious hilarity and beautiful artistry that typifies a lot of your "Mario"-related work, including the comic series you've based on the franchise. And it does an extraordinarily good job of celebrating all the kinds of unfortunate deaths the gaming world's most famous hero has had to suffer.
If the Guinness Book of World Records' gaming edition had a record for "widest variety of deaths in a video game franchise," Mario would certainly take the cake. And you see here... this picture is definitely one worth looking (and laughing) at! Great work, Bourgy! You deserve 25 stars from me!
The U.S. Supreme Court needs a fair, honest, resourceful, and responsible justice to sit in it. We can't trust the 2016 presidential candidates to nominate SCOTUS justices unless we know who the candidates' choices are!

I've created an online petition urging every candidate running for president - Democrats, Republicans, and Independents alike - to reveal the identities of the individuals they plan on nominating to the Supreme Court.

Also, feel free to weigh in on what you're looking for in a Supreme Court justice in the comments section.
With tons of Deviant Art users telling the stories of their experiences on the site in celebration of its 14th birthday... I bet now is the time for me to talk about my experiences with DA, as well.

I have a great artistic talent (or so I proclaim myself to have), and I've been drawing ever since I was just a little kid. But it wasn't until my 19th birthday that I discovered DA. In fact, it was my artistic talent and experiences that called me to join this site, and I'm proud to have been here for three years. For someone who's been drawing since his youth, I had to start somewhere, just like all the rest of us... but quite enough about that. I'm the kind of person who likes to keep much of his private life, shall I say, reserved.

Meanwhile, in all the time I've spent on DA, I've come to appreciate the artistic quality of the works of nearly every deviant in this community, but there is room for exceptions. I see that this site does contain a number of works that are directly copied from copyrighted sources (such as copyrighted official artworks, photo-manipulation, screen captures, etc. -- all of which I see as violations of the ToS), and even drawings that look sketchy, or unimaginative, or like they were made in kindergarten art time. In fact, I don't appreciate these types of drawings... I only appreciate DA submissions that their artists spent considerable time and effort on. Again, I do not condone copyright infringement or lack of imagination.

My current art style takes its influences predominantly from Western animation and comics. When I first started uploading work to DA, my art style had some aspects influenced by anime, but I've since diluted those considerably. I can't claim any specific work as an influence on my art style. But that doesn't matter; what matters is that I like my current style a lot better than the previous versions.

Seth Allen
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
Born in Savannah, Georgia in the early 1990s, I am the son of a civil engineer and a former registered nurse. I have lived in my current hometown of Cary, North Carolina since 1994.
I have a versatile personality which allows me to possess many different interests in many different topics and people. I claim that I possess a great degree of intelligence, and I prove to be very literate -- I am able to read and write proficiently, and though my primary language is English, I speak several foreign languages as well. I show a diverse interest in studying, and though I may not have had a proper education (I was taught only in a couple of primary schools, an elementary school, and then I was homeschooled for a few years), I love to show a diverse interest in the world around me.
I possess a great artistic talent, and an art style that has cartoonish characteristics with a touch of realism. I hate anything that is considered immoral, have zero tolerance for swearing or curses, and will stand no nonsense whatsoever. I despise much of the changes that have occurred in the world over the past 10 years, and I think that history would have been much better without such changes.
I am a born-again Christian (though not baptized), and I attend church and Sunday school regularly. My father once worked as a deacon.

Plz watch the "Mario is not a Hero" duology and see if each of his' opinions are true or not.

"It's just a theory... a Game Theory." So don't believe it.
