Another Castle by WiL-Woods Another Castle by WiL-Woods
"Generation after generation watched on as the two sides struggled to hold onto the hand of a princess. Neither side giving ground right until the very end. But on that day those struggles seemed to fade into memory as they had to say goodbye to the Princess who defined their lives."

This piece is a tribute to 25 years of the greatest game series of all time.

This is another collaboration with my beautiful :icontyrine666:, and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite pieces we've done.

Pencils, inks, flats, and finishes: Me
Insanely awesome coloring and inspiration: :icontyrine666:


all characters are Nintendo

Beautiful attention to detail, the slight graying of Bowser's hair, the flag at half-mast, hell even the lighting, and that's just beginning to list them
Simply amazing

This is strangely haunting and yet comical at the same time. Really lovely piece and a fitting tribute to the greatest game franchise ever.

I couldn't help but imagine Mario standing at her bedside with 1-UP mushroom soup.. tears welling in his eyes as the others are in the other room shaking their heads, finally Luigi goes in tugging at Marios sleeve shaking his head saying he must let her go.
