2D versus 3D

My first major piece in Illustrator, this piece depicts a battle between three dimensional video game characters and two dimensional ones. It has some issues with composition, but was a great learning experience.

Mario and Donkey Kong

Although technically lacking in many places, this was my first painting I was ever really proud of. Depicting a child's viewpoint of what they're playing on that tiny Gameboy screen, we have an epic battle of 8-bit proportions going on in his head. My biggest issue with this piece is Mario's pose, but considering this painting is nearly three years old at this point I'm okay with a few small problems. Acrylics on Illustration Board.
