Mario has a cigarette and it ia smoking.
I do like the pose. Even though, as AZINYE said, it's not the most original pose in the world, I don't think it detracts much from the picture. It has a lot of motion to it, making Mario look lively. Though, I don't think his facial expression quite fits the mood of the pose. It's a bit too much of a relaxed expression for a position with so much attitude. You did a nice job with the foreshortening, and the anatomy of the post is all good. You did a good job mixing realism with Mario's own unrealistic anatomy.
I like the form of the smoke and how light it looks, though I think it would benefit from having some more gray tones mixed in. That would help give it a little more body, and it would help it fit in with the realistic style of the drawing. The lighting is spot on, except for that considering that the light source is on the stronger side, I think he should have a darker shadow on the ground.
I suggest adding some different tones to the shadows. It would bring in even more life.
This is kind of a tiny detail, but I like where you put your signature.
Thanks for watching dude, you're right with the shadows .. in terms of tones and textures he wanted to give a personal touch ..
The smoke effects off the cig are awesome! Though you should have made it a joint because Mario looks pale and very stoned out of his mind. His pose isn't even original (straight out of smash brothers). Touching up an already existing picture by adding a cigarette gets you no love. Add a background 2 plz.
Thanks for providing your point of view.
Really good but I don't know a whole lot about art however that looks good to me like most of the art on Newgrounds. The thing that would make this superb would be a epic background.
Thanks for watching dude, discarded several funds lol.
