Art Attack Friday: Hyadaruko fan illustrates Mario

3:34 PM on 08.01.2008 // Tiff

Art Attack Friday has dipped it's toes into the nether-nets of the far east (aka 2ch) to uncover a series of Super Mario Bros. illustrations with rather curious origins. Originally stumbled upon while browsing the image bookmarking site ffffound, this lengthy collection of Mario Bros. fan art was drawn by an admirer of a popular singer named Hyadaruko from Nico Nico Douga, a Japanese video site. By using the 'anchor' method, common in 2ch threads, the artist has requested suggestions from the comments to create his illustrations.

The result is a plethora of drawings that captivate Mario and his companions in a casual and sometimes even humble disposition. The artist's mix of casual line work and crayon textured fill color Mario and his life as seen from the minds and hearts of his fans. With a tremendous amount of help from my friend Tatsuhiko Miyagawa and our very own Brad Rice, I present to you the first series of the work, fully translated after the jump. Enjoy!


"I actually don’t like mushrooms…"

"This doesn’t look like something to eat."

"That monster scares me as well."

"If you have one, they become mushrooms. I can’t accept that."

 

 "She always wants attentions and is annoying. (she’s so cute though) Hyadaruko is my wife btw." [Note: "Hyadaruko is my wfie" is the artist telling his audience that he's a huge fan of Hyadaruko]

"Painful."

 

"What. Are you saying I should fly with this tiny cloth? Actually you took my wings off. Where are they?"

"In another thread Luigi apparently picked up a death note. Give me one page."

"I’ll become slow since I’m now out of stock. What is this finger anyway? It’s annoying."

 "I’m actually not the guy who did this on Nico Nico. (I wanna go to bathroom) I’m just a fan. Hyadaruko is my wife."

"What is this gold? Is this ancient? LOL."

 "Peach in that video was amazingly cute and I drew her so she looks closer. I’m not the original author. I agree that the video is great.

This is my first attempt to draw pictures on 2ch threads, so I don’t know. Sorry.

Peach is cute, isn’t she?"

"EXTRA: This is something that’s already been done by someone, isn’t it?"

"Then this guy should take this position. Humans are funny."

"Let’s take a break. Going to get some tea."

"Sorry I’m nicochu (addicted to Nico Nico). I’m home!"

"EXTRA: oh yeah!"

"1 (I) is now about to forget the point of this thread."

"I’m also May sick wwww. Feeling blah. Lots of requests … Funny wwwww" [Note: May sick = refusal to go to school or work after the long break in May. www = LOL]

"You’re looking down on me…"

"Actually it’s impossible to accept all requests…

107: These pictures are drawn with freehand.

Drafting pictures is so boring. I can’t do that. I’m May sick."

"Ha Ha! Who is this?"

"Hey guys. I assume the summary of this will be posted to Nico Nico, so I should say…"

"Detteiu!!" [Detteiu= the sound of Yosshi)]

 

 

 "Ok, it’s become so chaotic here. Let’s draw something based on requests from #160."

"Ugh. I don’t understand what you mean. Let’s google.. Is this the one? Should I draw this? Meh. Surprisingly … I can’t do this anymore. What shall we do next? #175"

"I actually didn’t ask you for saving me! ... Thanks. Did you see this angle already? I don’t care!"

"I’m going to take a bath. I’m naked actually."

"I got refreshed by the bath. I’m back. next, #210"

 

 "I think I should draw 156 right? I can read the air since I’m the mushroom guy (Kinoko Yarou = KY)"

"Massage my shoulder. It hurts. Too strong! Prepare tea and cake for me. Next #270"

"ksk (= acceleration) reminds me of, this. I’m not doing any independent work nor professional illustration. But I actually want to do it."

"Let’s go home, since now I’m here to save you.

I actually haven’t finished my cake!"

"I’m T-I-R-E-D. I don’t wanna walk anymore. Let’s get Yosshi to ride on."

"Thanks everyone. I’m gonna sleep now, but I’ll draw some if I want to. It was so fun. See you someday!"

Anyone remember the cartoon "Freakazoid"? I'm doing artwork for a box for work to hold my supplies, but I cant remember some of the better characters. Freakazoid, Steph, Cosgrove, Candlejack, the Lobe, Caveguy... but who else?

Sorting out a bunch of university stuff and going through a bit of writers block. I'm also holding some of my best stuff back for freelancing purposes (uni ain't cheap!), so sorry if my blogs have been a bit lackluster lately. And will be for 4-ish weeks.

Adventure games are a big part of the indie scene, but there's a reason their popularity plummeted as graphics evolved. This clicking on everything, just in case, nonsense is for the birds. 90s birds, but birds.

Spotted some "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" (1989) DVDs in a store. Hearing music and sound effects from the game is more amusing than it should be - although the running shrill gets old quickly.

Funny coincidence: Last week saw the release of Until Dawn, which talked about a Canadian tribe of Native Americans called the Cree,and last night a Cree woman (Ms. Canada) won the Ms. Universe contest. Butterfly Effect updated.

If I was to play through the NES library, besides being madness, what order do I do it? Alphabetically or Release date-wise? Whats the Dtoid universe think?
