Portraits: Mario + Luigi by Elusive-Angel Portraits: Mario + Luigi by Elusive-Angel
I finally decided to try out realism on the infamous bros, four months after doing their antagonistic opposites. Oh Lordi, this took ages.

I'm not completely satisfied with Luigi for some reason, will continue to tweak him later.

Bare in mind this is just my own personal interpretation.

This is really more like it. Most "realistic" interpretations of Mario make him out to look somewhat hideous.
You managed to turn out a realistic Mario that is actually rather handsome, but still makes me see the original character. Well done indeed.

I like this. The only small niggle I have is that Mario's face, while realistic, does not carry over that cherubic feature. Perhaps it needs to be fattened up a little. It might be the jaw line.

Luigi looks fine, but the thing that might be throwing you off is his eyes.

If you look at it you can see some of the similarities to the Wario/Waluigi picture you did a while back in their features. While being an octave lighter to their alter-ego, Mario carries Wario's wolfish looks while Luigi carries Waluigi's serpentine squint.

YOU MUST DO MOOOOOOOOOORE!

I had thought of giving him that particular trait but then I looked back on how I did Wario and realised I should have made him fatter and then changed my mind. I might add it later once my retinas have recovered.

You're right about Luigi. I spent a good 20 mins trying to morph them back into his skull plus, I don't think I rendered/outlined him as much (I was shattered at that point!)

In regards to your last point, that was completely sub-conscious. XD

I am thinking of doing Bowser (100% human) and maybe some minor characters; probably not to this degree of professionalism but nonetheless. And who knows, I might even do your beloved mad scientist. ;p

(Actually, I've been meaning to produce something with him and Walu in the last few weeks so keep your eyes peeled in y!G)

I have seen some wicked interpretations of a human Bowser before, but now I am curious of how yours will be fleshed out.

Minor characters? Who did you have in mind? Tatanga? Wart? Foreman Spike? Pauline?

Ah, who cares about all of those obscure characters. I want to see some of that WaluigixRobotnik hankypanky goin' on!

Despite your dissatisfaction with how Luigi came out, I actually think both brothers look fantastic here! I have to say, this has GOT to be the most accurate depiction of what Mario and Luigi would look like as real people that I have ever seen! This is just... simply fantastic. Very well done, ma'am. :)
