About this creation
I wanted to build some messed-up characters.

I'm really not sure how, but I came up with something I called - for lack of a better term - "Dark Nintendo": twisted revisions of the classic characters. Something along the lines of what this video game did for Alice in Wonderland.

There were two results.

First, there's Glass Joe from "Punch-Out!", or an impossibly scrawny, skeletal junkie version of Glass Joe, with ribs you could play like a xylophone.





He also looks vaguely like Tom Petty.





Then there's Princess Peach, from "Super Mario Bros.", or a bloodstained, club-wielding, psychotic version of the Princess.



This is lovingly titled the "Imma f*** your day up" shot.





There were two more characters planned.

There was Link, from the Zelda universe, but I couldn't decide what he should look like. I got as far as building him a crossbow before I gave up.
Then, of course, there's Mario. I finished except the head by the time I gave up. He just looked too simple, too by-the-numbers. Too cartoonish, too.




It's too much fun to make things darker.

Looks like Friday night in their apartment would be worth sitting on the couch to watch. Lee.

Of course it's fun making things darker, because then you can add fancy lighting and make a pretty good creation into a fantastic one. And yes, he does look a bet like Tom Petty.

I tried my hand at a "mecha Mario" but these dark creations are awesome. Peach looks great, love the hand style. -Sam
