Mario Spring Toy by slimu Mario Spring Toy by slimu
I liked playing with this toy when I was little D:

This was a class assignment where we paint a toy from our childhood into an environment. Basically I used it as an excuse to do fan art :X

Painter and Photoshop!

I used to have this one too. It came from a McDonald's kid's meal, I think.

I also had Luigi on a cloud, a wind-up Goomba and a Koopa Paratroopa that hops when you squeeze a small pump connected to it.

It was the only time in my life I made my parents take me to various McDonalds to get the whole set.

Oh yeah! I had that toy to from the SMB3 Mcdonald's Happy Meal promotion. It was a very cool promotion. (I especially loved how they themed the Happy Meal boxes after the different worlds in the game.)

Very great nostalgic painting here. :)

I still have my toy, but I removed the spring. Now it just looks like he has a gaping butthole.

HIT THE DECK IT'S A NOSTALGIA GRENADE!

I had this one, the flipping goomba toy, the pull back racing Luigi, and a Paratroopa that came with a little airpump that made it kick it's legs.

I absolutely love the craters along the path where Toy-Mario's stomped. =D
...and how absolutely imposing he looks. And the way the power-ups are growing like any normal plant: out of the ground. And and and... <3

I wish I was there when you were painting this ._.

Look at the various koopas and goombas desperately scrambling away. XDDDD What's worse, Mario's boot to the face or an entire SPRING BOARD to the head? XP

I just love the colors and ANY excuse to draw Mario fanart is a great one. XD

...oh my gosh, you just brought back my childhood in one toy. I loved playing with this little guy when I was younger as well! I think I actually still have this Mario Spring toy somewhere. This is fantastic! :love:

The lighting is slightly mysterious looking and not choosing to include the eyes definitely gives the concept an air of ominousness. *shiver*

By the way, any excuse to do fan art is a good excuse..
Very well done!
