Rainbow Road. by xXsamluvsgreendayXx Rainbow Road. by xXsamluvsgreendayXx
Remake of my all-time biggest piece --> fav.me/d3kw3dq

I remember last year when 10 layers was a lot for me, and I felt like a bad ass xD
:iconwatchoutweplz:

96 Layers, 4-5 days of work

I know I said I wouldn't do it until after the PCs were over, but I just couldn't resist.. hope you guys could forgive me for that. Well, mainly Bixiff since yours is the only one I had on the list at the time I started this so I apologize and I'm currently working on your PC.

Well.. where do I start? xD

With Mario, I tried dozens of sketches of him. I couldn't make up my mind and I eventually went with this one. This is probably the best picture of Mario I've ever drawn.. no idea why, I just have problems drawing him xD In the previous RR, you could hardly see his body, mostly because of the perspective, but still. He looks pose-y here again, but a lot less cheesy. I like how I colored him and his kart.

With Luigi, I definitely think he looks awkward, but he still looks okay. In the previous, I got a lot of complaints on his shoe or foot being enlarged so I made an effort to avoid that. His bike was the hardest of all the bikes/kart to sketch for some reason lol.

With Boswer, I think he looks the worst :P worse than the previous RR xD but he could have looks worse. Eh.. kinda don't feel like talking about him..

With Daisy, her kart was the longest to edit, but it was worth the time. The tires and the spokes might be screwed up ^^; dimension-wise.

With Peach, I think she looks the cutest along with the Mach bike. I really didn't want her posing like the previous RR.. her face was too large. I drew so many mach bikes but this one is probably the best.

With Yoshi, he was the quickest to edit, kart and body. He doesn't look too different from the previous, so not much to reiterate here xD

With Waluigi, I think he looks great. He looks more definable and his bike is the most detailed out of all the karts/bikes. He's still holding his signature bob-omb, but he actually looks like he's gonna use the darn thing xD

With Wario, I think he looks the second worst.. he and Bowser were close, I couldn't decide xD but.. eh.. he still looks a LOT better than the previous.

With the Background, what an improvement! It actually looks good! The previous looked horrendous, I hated it to death. It wasn't even shaded or anything. But I think this time around I finally got it right.

Hope you like and.. this really shows what a year of learning can do to you!

Edit: edited my minor watermark

ReEdit (2014): Changed the size so it's easier on the eyes. After all these years, I'm still not happy with it -n- My style keeps changing and I keep getting better and I look back at stuff like this. Am I gonna redo it AGAIN?! ... Probably not for awhile at least.. I've learned that I can redo and redo pic after pic, but I'll never be happy with them as long as I keep improving. I can't win with redos and maybe that's just meant to be

I Have To Say...YOU DID A FANTASTIC JOB ON THIS!

For Mario: There's Nothing Bad About Him! I Love His Facial Expression!

For Luigi: Oh God...That's Gonna Be A Tuff Landing. I Think The Reason He's Falling Is Because In The Last One You Did Waluigi Was Holding A Bomb So....Ouch.

For Peach: WHY SO GIRLY AND CUTE?

For Daisy: It Look's Like She Either Said GoodBye! To Peach Or She Farted And She's Waving It At Her.

For Yoshi: LOLOLOLOL

For Bowser: Fail. EPIC PHAIL!

For Wario: He's....Relaxing....O_O

For Waluigi: He Look's More Menacing Then Bowser. AND HE LOOKS LIKE HE'S GONNA THROW A BOMB AT EITHER MARIO DAISY OR BOWSER. FUCKING LOOK OUT!

(This is my first critique, so sorry if it's a little shaky! ^^;)

First of all, I'd like to say that this is a big improvement over the last Rainbow Road drawing. For all the work you put into it, I think you did a great job!

I'll start off with my opinion on each of the characters. Personally, I think that Mario's pose is the best out of the characters here. It looks natural and... Mario-like. :XD: I agree that Luigi looks a tad awkward - references are very useful for poses such as that, but I do understand that it's a very hard pose to draw! I don't really have any comments for Peach and Daisy, except that I love the detail you added into Daisy's kart. I like that Yoshi is a little smaller than the others, implying that he is behind them, but I can't help but feel that his tongue is a tad out of place. But that might just be me. I actually really like the way you drew Wario here. His pose reflects his personality well and the details you added to the bottom of his kart look great. *has no comment for Waluigi :XD:* Bowser's head does seem a little misshapen, especially his eyes. I feel that they should be placed a bit closer together. But other than that, his pose looks good and his kart is drawn well. ^^

Now for some positive points - I personally love shading on the star bits. It gives off a shiny feel. :D The starry background was done well too - I'm glad you didn't abuse Photoshop filters for that part. :XD: The small details make this piece look good as well, such as the brush used on the road itself.

A few negative points - first of all, I feel that the dodge and burn tool was used a bit too much in some areas, like on Mario's overalls. It makes his overalls look shiny, even though clothes aren't naturally that shiny. Try to lower the opacity of the brush when shading things that don't normally shine. :D

This critique turned out to be quite long... I'm sorry! D: I know I'm not a perfect artist myself, but I hope you'll take some of my advice! ^^

96 layers, wtf?! x]  Nicely done. I like how you did Wario, he doesn't even care.
If you happen to do another MK pic, it'd be kuul if they had powerups (blue shell taking someon out).
