A Paper Mario Story by SuperCaterina A Paper Mario Story by SuperCaterina
Once upon the time the idea to make a "drawing alive" blinked into my mind while playing Paper Mario: The Thousand year door. It was a very simple idea at the beginning, but then it grew up into a bigger. I spent part of my life (3 months :XD:) on this: it's actually the best I could do. Enjoy it!:aww:

By the way, like the best fairy tales, also this drawing has its age: it has maybe 3 years...

:star: Believe me or not, every single character is a piece of drawing. I cut everyone of them all and put everyone in his/her/its place into this landscape drawn in a big paper sheet (this took me about 3 months to finish). I was so afraid they escaped from the drawing, but they are still here luckily, after all these years: maybe because they like the landscape, or maybe because every one wants to have an important role on this wonderful scene! =):star:

Now the curtain is opened to you, too!:aww:

:bulletred: A hammer of the Hammer Bros has got lost somewhere... I told him not to trhow so far away, so it's not my fault! >=[
:bulletblue: Characters and scenery drawn by hand and coloured with pastels!:aww:
*The original drawing is really big, so I had to take a photo of it: I took it as good as I could...^^;*

:bulletblack: Drawing featured in the page "Io amo Nintendo" (I love Nintendo) in the Italian official magazine of Nintendo-Nintendo la Rivista Ufficiale(Sprea editor)- in December 2006. It's a present for them from me!:aww:
See the scan here:pointr:[link] Here you can see a better photo of my drawing and understand how I did this!;):bulletblack:


And...Yes, this is MADNESS! :iconmadnessplz:

*Who said me to put this drawing of mine on my gallery?
:iconnintendrawer::iconryusukehamamoto::iconzootalo:and my Sis Giulia :iconmihayo:.
But the end my head makes wht it wants!:p Thankyou so much!:aww:

A Paper Mario Story by ~SuperCaterina. From the suggester: "This piece is absolutely beautiful and so pleasing to the eye. It's great homage to the Paper Mario 2 series. I haven't played it myself yet but this makes me want to play it even more! The artist's entire gallery is filled with beautiful traditional fan art as well."

Last time I checked, only Kirby was allowed riding a star...
Only two words can describe this art and this game: Hell Yes!
I was never good at drawing Paper Mario... :(
The Rawk and Hooktail look just like the game! Love it! :)
