Super Mario Eyes by KatieAlves Super Mario Eyes by KatieAlves
Holy crap it's Mario! I'm actually in the works of doing a Mario themed photo shoot with a photographer, so I'm testing out different designs. I don't think I'll be using this one though. It took way too long and the details are way too tiny. The model's eyes are tiny compared to my drag queen shaped eyes!

Ok, so we've got the coin counter, those hill things, the piranha plant, the ? box, a Goomba, step things with coins, Bullet Bill, an odd looking Mario in the tanooki suit (with wiggling tail), a mushroom, Koopa Troopa, Yoshi, the flag pole and finally the castle! Ahhh so many tiny little things. I'm quite proud of that Yoshi. Frig, that was grossly tiny.

On a side note, I need your help guys! I've dropped down to 6th place in the Makeupbee/Sugarpill contest. It would mean the world to me if you voted for me! [link] A "like" is a vote!

I can't say I know too terribly much about makeup, but this is amazing. You may think that everything is too tiny, but the attention to detail here is stunning. I can't imagine how long it must have taken to make this, nor how cramped your hand must have been afterwards. The colors are very vibrant and eye-catching, and the little blocks between the eyes are an interesting way to bridge the two. I especially love Yoshi and tanuki Mario--God knows it must have been hard to draw the detail on Mario in particular, but you did a fabulous job. I can't tell exactly, but it looks like you put some type of shimmery gold over top of some of the hills and other things. It makes them look very pretty and stand out.

Overall, this is awesome.

This is pretty amazing! It looks really good and the details are very concise! The only thing I have to say is 'Where's Mario'? Also what is that flying tiger looking thing? The gumba is a bit unclear to make out. And the turtles legs are a bit long, but other than those few things, AMAZING!!!!! Just WOW! Verry impressive!I look forward to seeing your "Mario Photo Shoot" soon! Fun Fact: Did you know Gumba is an insulting name Italians use so the Japanese made a nice joke out of that! Well the fun fact was to fill in some space but it is true! Okay thanks bye!
