    I remember growing up and play Super Mario Brothers for hours! It was the only game I would play besides sonic the hedgehog.

    I really wanted to explore a more simple style that used no outlines and simple shades and minimal colors.

    I am no part of the this epic series but, I love being able to explore new styles and thought just do something cool and give tribute to the guys!

    I think Kyle, Matt, Justin and Rogie nailed this series! I hardly think my piece is anything as good as theirs but I really enjoy making it. I really think that is all that matters.

    Cheers!

    My cousin and I would play for hours when we weren't spining ourselves sick on the tire swing. We'd leave it on pause overnight. You couldn't save your progress.

    Why don't you value your knowledge/skills? I see that you constantly mention same people and constantly keep saying that you didn't good designer as they are. I know that you have great respect for them (we all have), but you are also great designer and I don't think you should minimize your value always. Sorry if this post was negative, but on the contrary, I wrote it with a positive idea.

    Keep up good work, coz this Mario set is uber cool!

    @Jovan Petrić: I think mainly my reason is that I think I can always do better. So it motivates me to be better. I am also humble and even though I do a good job I rather not admit it. I totally agree my friend! I think before I didn't have much confidence in my ability even though I am talented. I just think I have a lot to learn still but, yet I want to hold on to my values as staying humble and staying nice. I think what I fear is having an ego. I also think there is better designer then me that I wish would get recognize more. I appreciate your support Jovan it means a lot to me! I am a normal dude in a ever growing design world trying to do something that I enjoy and learn with everyone else.
