Check out this awesome, retro gaming-inspired stop motion animation featuring characters from several popular NES-era games:
The artist, Eric Odmyr, says it took over 30 hours, spread out over a few days, to complete.
The music – a song by Bunnymajs called “WHAT DID YOU SAY?” – fits nicely with the retro 8-bit theme, don’t you think? (Thought the music was taken from an old school game myself until I read otherwise on the animator’s YouTube page here.)
Stumbled onto this interesting, manga/anime-inspired Super Mario Bros. piece by artist Saejin Oh while researching my previous post:
A preview of the entire "Super F-ed Up Bros. World 1-1" piece.
It seems that the original Super Mario Bros. World 1-1 continues to be a source of inspiration for artists everywhere (in this case, South Korea).
Just to warn you, the entire piece is a bit graphic in terms of it’s depictions of highly stylized, over the top violence; to view the entire piece, violent bits and all, click here to go to the artist’s page on deviantART.
(I love the way he incorporates the title screen and card and the cool Starman effect midway through.)
