Mario Party 5 by Retro-Death Mario Party 5 by Retro-Death
My cousin got me Mario Party 5 when he was staying with us and I think it's easily one of my favourites next to the second instalment. I just love the strategy behind the items, use 'm? Place 'm? It's brilliant!

Boo (that would be me) invited his close friends / mortal enemies over for an ol' fashionned board game. He finally threw a high roll which is why he is so ecstatic (I tend to throw low so often OTL )

Daisy (the lovely =ValaSedai) is putting on the duel glove (yes I know it looks like her own normal glove but I like it like this so deal with it) because that's what my lovely wifey does, she gains your trust and then when you feel safest she strips you bare and leaves you to wallow in despair.

Yoshi (controlled by mah cousin ~Cementiet) is high on his shroom...not much else to say, he likes them shrooms. XD

Luigi, our standard choice for the C.P.U. (because Luigi is AWESOME) has the Bullet Bill item...obviously I made it slightly cooler looking.


The board has a crapload of details, I made it exactly as in game and even added little pawns for each of 'm. I might or might not upload it some day. I had it on STASH but you cannot turn of the download function there so tough noogies.

It really had the best diversity in games before they started relying on shaking stuff.

Thank you so much for the nice comment. :) I really wanted it to feel kinda realistic and maybe even a bit dark, I had Luigi's pose first without the gun and once I decided to give them some items all of a sudden in my mind he was holding a gun so I decided to add it.

I really enjoy the concept of having the Mario Party game board be a LITERAL game board. It makes the perfect centerpiece for the artwork, bringing all the focus to the wonderful detail you put into it. Also, the dynamics for each character are really great. This piece is really exceptional! The only piece of criticism I could even offer is that Daisy's hand (the one she's slipping the glove onto) looks a little strange. But other than that, everything is absolutely lovely!

Thank you so much for the wonderful comment! :iconawwwplz: That hand gave me so many problems and it is the only thing I constantly kept changing from the start of this artwork till the very end of it and I am myself still not happy with it. I think it's too small and I kinda 'forgot' her wrist among others. Female anatomy kills me... OTL

The SISTERS was a group of my best friends back in Highschool. Red was/is my favorite color, so that was who I was in the group. I used to have a bunch of artwork up for us, but took it all down since it was all old pixel work I wasn't too proud of. ^_^;

It's a very long book series where all man go insane when using magic but woman can still control it and there is a big community and teh woman are divided in Ajahs, their colours which show their expertise. There are 7 Ajahs (plus black which are evil) and the red sisters hunt down men that can channel because they always go mad.

Pshh. You should see how long it takes for me to churn my stuff out. If I had real skill, I would be a lot faster at it. The only reason my stuff might look okay is because I have way too much time on my hands... or more likely, I'm probably neglecting my responsibilities to do "drawrings" instead :)

But seriously, this thing is awesome. I can tell that you really thought about what you were doing here, and that you probably had a lot of fun with it.

I love all the little details you put into this. It is evident that the board itself is crazy detailed (awesome all by itself), but everything else you did sets the scene too. The potted piranha plant next to the coins, the cob webs under the table, the bullet bills (so clever that they're actual bullets by the way)the reflection in the mirror with the chandelier, and even the cuckoo clock, which if I'm reading correctly, indicates a time of 1:00 in the morning (why else would the chandelier be lit unless it was a lat night gaming session!)

Seriously, this is way better than the stuff I've put out so far. This reminds me of so many late night gaming sessions I've had with my homies. I love it when artwork can tell a story and evoke an emotional response. A lot of daily deviations don't even do that, but this one clearly does, for me at least.

So when I say great work, understand that I really mean and believe it, this is GREAT WORK :)

You are right this was so much fun to do, it took me quite some time though, I think the board alone took me longer than the rest of the picture put together.

That feeling is exactly what I wanted to convey. The clock is set at 23:10 but indeed with those late night gaming sessions in mind.

I wanted it to feel real and kinda dark and I wanted each character to have an item from the game. Luigi's pose was perfect for a gun (he had his hand closed at first).

The chandeliers in the mirror plus its light is one of the things I am proudest of from the way it turned out. That and Luigi himself.

It's not really a DD though. XD Unless you mean by daily deviation simply all that gets put out on dA.

:iconblushplz: You're too kind. Well this pic is kinda huge for my standards which allowed me to zoom in so much and draw the game in great detail exactly like it is in game. I hate it that you cannot zoom in far enough to actually see all the details on the board (like the little pawns the characters use (you'll get a cookie if you can spot all 4 of them))but the artwork wasn't about that. I had the board zoomed up close on STASH but you cannot turn of the DL function there so I removed it again.

Thank you. :) Well the Boo pawn is in front of the seven rays of light (they represent the amounts of steps he can take due to his dice roll) The Yoshi one is in the top left corner and both Peach and Luigi are somewhere on the bottom right/middle.
