What if Super Mario Bros on the NES was'nt originally a hit? What if Mario did'nt evolve thru the years, becoming ever more popular, with his look becoming more and more refined and friendly? What if all we had to remind us was just the original sprites, no coverarts or official artwork. How would you remember him? A chubby  and happy determined Italian Plumber or just some old-looking player wearing red overalls?

With that in mind, I came with this idea... How would look in an HD version of Super Mario Bros created today taking in consideration just the 1985 sprites? Well, that's how I think it would all look!

Very nice work!

saulc12 (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 11/7/2015 10:44

Beautifully re-imagined with such a nice finish to everything - excellent

xegnma (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/20/2015 11:16

Any chance you could provide the backgrounds used in the mock-ups as separate images or better yet in a layered format like GIMP(*.xcf), Photoshop(*.psd) or OpenRaster (*.ora)?

Ciclopiz (Level 2 Dealer) @ 7/9/2014 21:43

muito foda!

Hey man, these are brilliant. I read on your blog that it's cool to animate these and put them into a game, just wanted to let you know thanks for posting the actual sprites themselves here. I really can't wait to put these into motion!

LunchPolice (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 1/26/2014 16:33

It's always great to check out the guy who favourited your sprite and find out he's amazing. :O

Lucas- (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 8/18/2013 20:39

Congratuations to the second position on the month, I think this is the best, but, they're choose on the votes, i love you pixels arts and this is, for me, your best pixel art!

HypeWizardA (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/20/2013 21:23

I Love it!

epoxy (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/14/2013 08:32

Haha, gorgeous! This reminds me a little bit of how it felt to see SMB re-rendered in 16 bit when I first saw Super Mario All-Stars.

guskooyman (Level 4 Button Man) @ 7/8/2013 18:31

Pretty sure I saw this on Kotaku recently. Nice job man!

Bandersnatch (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/8/2013 07:08

Mini Mario kinda reminds me of the main guy from Braid.

IllicitPixel (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/8/2013 03:35

Very nice..

Arkan85 (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 7/8/2013 03:29

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 7/3/2013 22:12

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 7/3/2013 12:46


StarQueen (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/3/2013 09:14

 Eu fico triste em ver essa incrível obra , e não poder joga-la , no entanto , tem chances de ser desenvolvido ?

StarQueen (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/3/2013 07:12

 vc é foda jinn kk

Emperor_Pixel (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/2/2013 18:39

 Also, am I the only one to notice that he actually kept the "the bushes are the clouds" staple?

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 7/2/2013 17:22

Jinn... I would play the SHIT... out of this!!!!!!!!!!!! Dude, I LOVE you!!!


KnobleKnives (Level 1 Intern) @ 7/2/2013 16:12

 Holy crap, man. Dem colors o.o. This is beautiful.

quick question: how do you pick colors for your pixel artistry? I've tried and it's rather difficult. It took me hours to get the colors working on my Candle Light icon. 

manxana (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/2/2013 15:46

 I think I saw this on 9gag.

Really great work, your skills have grown so much in such a small time.

Congratulations, and this is insta-fav

skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 7/2/2013 14:51

 Very nice, I much prefer when you don't dither 

EDIT: I guess you havent for a while now. But I really like the painty feel of it.

Terrify (Level 3 Chief) @ 7/2/2013 14:43

 Truly amazing!

Emperor_Pixel (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/2/2013 13:42

 This is beautiful... Now you have to make a game u.u

Felix20 (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 7/2/2013 08:44

Really awesome looking, I'd love to actually play a mario game that looked like this

Reo (Level 11 Sensei) @ 7/2/2013 07:51

Very pretty sprites! If I have one nitpick is that Boswers hand is a bit small and might look better unclenched!  But great rendering as always! Love the Koopa!

allaze-eroler (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/2/2013 04:32

super mario bros meet braid ! :D

ThePixelKnight (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/1/2013 17:25

Cool stuff! Love the palette. :)

Pukahuna (Level 5 Soldier) @ 7/1/2013 17:12

 Eita O_o

A lava e o cenário do mockup do castelo não são em pixel art né?

StarQueen (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/1/2013 16:14


EdJr (Level 6 Yonkyu) at 7/1/2013 2:01:52 PM

Cara, não é por ser do Mario nem nada (nem gosto tanto assim do jogo), mas na minha opinião este é um dos melhores PAs que você já fez! Me fez lembrar do Braid.


Concordo com o Ed , é excelente , incrível .. clássico , nostalgico .. :)


JuninFC (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 7/1/2013 14:51

blanktarget (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/1/2013 14:26

Looks great, you have a very 'Braid' style artwork here.
