Fire Flower Mario

Mario powering up, or what happens after a spicy meat-a-ball burrito.

I did this one just for me every now and then I'll have a bit of extra time to draw something just for the Hell of it and so along came Mario. I remember playing this back during the late 80's over at my younger brother's best friend's place (he was the first, if not only kid we knew who had a nintendo at the time) and we were instantaneously hooked on the adventures of the pixelated plumber and his mission to rescue a captured princess. Of the power ups he could attain the ability to throw bouncing fireballs at oncoming enemies was matched only by the invincibility star in awesomeness.

As a child of the 80's this game was pretty much the defining watershed of awesomeness for an entire generation.
The sight of this wonderful shimmering jewel of a flower rising up out of a question mark box was always a welcome sight.
