Super Mario – The 8-bit awesomeness !

I don’t need to say anything about the legendary label. As a kid, it was the first experience of such great interaction with sight,sound & motion. I still remember all the level maps, characters and not to mention, the music.

Yesterday, i just created this Fan art wallpaper for Super Mario. Tried to make the final art a mix of vector + pixel-art. Its available in 1920 x 1200 wide-screen as well as regular version.


A little more about Mario.

Super Mario Bros.  is a platform video game was developed and published by Nintendo in late 1985. In Super Mario Bros., the main character-Mario, saves Princess Toadstool ‘Peach’ of the Mushroom Kingdom from King Koopa ‘Bowser’. Mario’s younger brother, Luigi-is the second player in multi-player mode, and plays on the same plot role as Mario.

To save Princess, Mario travels through the eight worlds and three sub-worlds of the Mushroom Kingdom by going to the castle in each to defeat a minion of King Koopa. Inside the eighth castle, Mario frees the Princess Peach after a final fight with King Koopa !

Apart from the amount of detailing in graphics & gameplay or arcade level, the music of the game played a major role to struck the user’s head. It was composed by Kōji Kondō, a Japanese musician who has created compositions for various Nintendo Games including Duck Hunt, Wrecking Crew, Mario Bros. and Kung-Fu !

I couldn’t found the original soundtrack but in the video below, a guy from Soth Korea called Zack Kim plays Mario theme on his Guitar. Worth a Watch !

Electro Lounge wallpaper !

Recently i have been listening to some really good electronic music bands like Royksopp, Daft Punk, Mint Royale and El Ten Eleven. Their music works out great to help while long working session with your machine.

This wallpaper artwork came out as a result of too much listening to them.  :)
