Back to old school again!
I am sorry for the less "fantasy" I have, but this will be one of the thousand (or more) times that I draw something related to Super Mario Bros 3, because I really love that game! ^_^
I have seen that in Super Mario Galaxy many of the old things that were on Super Mario Bros 3 came back and they have a renued and cooler style, such as the music and the Bowser's airship!
Anyway, I have made some hypoteses about Mario Galaxy: I have seen, for example, that there are 8 flying Ships in the Bowser jr' airship Armada...Yes, right 8 like the kids of Bowser!! O.O Doesn't give this you a little curiosity like it happend me? And if the koopalings had to be in this game, but they have been taken away because of some problems related to the time of developing the game of Mario Galaxy (like it happened also in Super Princess Peach, where also the pixel versions have been made, but misteriously they weren't in the Game).
Anyway, with this, I think that Nintendo doesn't want to replace totally the koopalings with only Bowser jr (so, don't be evil with him, ok???!! X3), because it had tried many time to put all the koopa kids also in the latest games: like Super Princess Peach, for example, then Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga (where they are little bossess in the koopa flying castle) and then they were meant to be also in New Super Mario Bros as bossess (read into an interview with Shigeru Miyamoto). So, I have made also my little hypoteses in Mario Galaxy (and it is said that many other things have taken away from that game, like the reason for what Rosalina looks very much like Princess Peach...It's not a case, you know...
Maybe in the next Super Mario games koopalings will return stronger then ever (Wii and Nintendo DS life is still long X))!
Total time spent in the drawing: 3 hours (mostly for the koopalings corners, made directly with computer XD)
Technique: Computer (with adobe Photoshop CS2)
