Bowser's Castle by priteeboy Bowser's Castle by priteeboy
My fourth and final entry to the Ultimate Fandom contest, and I think I saved my best idea for last ;) First - the mandatory rundown.

-Ultimate Fandom Contest 3: Video Games [link]
-Gaming Franchise: Super Mario Bros
-Environment or Character: Environment
-My Description: below as usual

Bowser, or "King of Koopa" as he was formerly called, has been present ever since Mario's first adventure, and every evil villain needs his fortress of doom right? so His castle has always been a final stage in each game.
For a couple of months now, I've been wanting to do something like this, and this contest was my motivation to actually do it, since it seemed like a daunting task to try out. Bowser's castle does seem to vary in appearance from game to game, probably because Mario keeps laying waste to all of his expensive castles lol. I was on the verge of drawing the type you see in the latest Mario Kart game, but found a screenshot from a different game (I think Mario Party for the DS) which is where I based this from, and the design on that version looked the coolest of all the Bowser Castle's I've seen :toocool:

Art details: This one is 100% pure illustrated in Photoshop (with a mouse still lol), something I hardly do now that I have 3D and access to stock textures or photo's. I figured it would look better and more dramatic that way, considering my other entry to the environment slot was almost fully 3D. And to also remind everyone that I can do pretty good stuff without the need for 3D too :nod: Everything here was done from scratch in the most traditional way that digital art can get :painter:

It probably won't top the badass incarnation of Bowser's Castle as seen in Mario Kart 8. They make it more awesome with each version 8-)
