So here's my entry to this month's COTM from youtuber Jazza.
My intention was to mix elements from the most innovative (at least in my opinion) games from the Super Mario canon. Combining elements from Mario Kart 7 (the spinning items) and 8 (the blue lines allowing for enhanced movement and anti-gravity. I also took elements from Super Mario Striker for the design of the armor and lastly I used the look of Mario on his Ultimate Smash (in Brawl) for the eyes and flames. The level Cap would be present in the fact that Mario is using everything he's ever used in previous iterations to fight as the Ultimate version of himself.
The background uses the color scheme from World 8 levels on the Super Mario Bros. game series and the faces of baby Mario and regular Mario on the background serve as a reminer or flashback of what Mario was and what he has become at this Level Cap.
