Portraits: Wario + Waluigi by Elusive-Angel Portraits: Wario + Waluigi by Elusive-Angel
Realistic interpretations of the notorious two.

This was fun but very challenging to do, not just because of the realism aspect but also portraying their personalities. Age was another issue, considering we don't really know how old they are...I'd say here, Wario's in his early 40's and Waluigi mid/late 30's.

I got lazy on the clothes which I'll continue to tweak (as well as other things) later on.

I haven't decided if I'm going to do Mario and Luigi yet since we already have a rough idea what they (might) look like, thanks to Lou Albano/Danny Wells and Bob Hoskin/John Leguizamo.

Tools: Photoshop CS3, Paint Tool SAI

Time taken: Don't ask!

Waluigi looks French for some reason. Wario's expression reminds me (a little bit) of Gaston. Great pic!! My compliments!

Sweet baby Jesus this is beautiful. Well, 'beautiful" might not be the most suitable word for these two. They look like total scumbags who I'd want to punch in the face, and that is a good thing. You NAILED them. Both portraits really capture the uniqueness of the characters!

I always find it funny whenever I see them together because the guy who voiced both Wario and Waluigi in the games stated that they're not even actually brothers; they're just two jerks who decided to band together and be assholes to two other dudes with similar names.

The expressions are just right.

I don't know why, but Waluigi looks a bit like David Tennant wearing a fake nose to me.

Wow, this is incredible! I absolutely love this style! Very cool and unique! You should make a portrait like this with Slim Bankshot and Melody Pianissima from Luigi's Mansion! I would be very appreciative!

There's such amazing detail throughout these, and they look remarkably realistic. Every aspect of this artwork oozes personality and energy, like you can feel the essence of the characters. However much work you put into this, it was very much worth it. Congratulations.

Wow, both look handsome.

I like the way Wario looks for some strange reason. I like this art style, and the stain on Waluigi's hat!

This is amazing! I love this so much!
ore9ore Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2014
Superb, pal!
But, shouldn't be Wario's face more... fat?
A bit more flacid cheeks, maybe?

But is a very good work, very detailed, and very real. My congratulations!

Still can't help but think of ProtonJon's voice for Waluigi seeing this picture, or any picture of Waluigi.

Yes... this was certainly an excellent idea.

What's funny is that I can imagine these portraits posted somewhere around Wario's castle. xD

Waluigi's nose is just a little unrealisticly too long but he is still greatly well done.

These two guys are my favorite characters!

This is so awesome and I always think that Waluigi's nose could poke and pop Wario's nose LOL

Great realistic interpretations. You really do capture their personalities through their expressions, the details in their faces and the rich use of their signature colors. Awesome job!

They're way more handsome than they should be. :iconmegustamuchoplz:

FractiousLemon Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2012
I like to think that this is how the Wario Brothers view themselves as realistic versions of them would be much, MUCH uglier! *laughs*

Does anyone else want to see a two player Wario Bros. game? I have been waiting for that since i first saw a picture of Waluigi. I would also like to see a remake of the Mario bros movie and include these guys in it.

Very well done.

I noticed you gave Wario a gold tooth. Interesting touch.

Garlar Featured By Owner May 2, 2012  Hobbyist
This is gorgeous! The eyes are especially well done, I like the tired/stoned look, and the fact you gave them different eye colours is a plus! For once, green and blue eyes that are not supposed to be ohhhsosexy but still convey a lot of emotion!
Wario's gold tooth is a very spot-on detail: now THAT makes him look greedy as hell! The only detail I think could have been better, is that Wario's face should have been fatter. But other than that, awesome job!
I am positive I'm now in love with that Waluigi v_v Is he trying a forced smile?
Kiwii3364 Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
For their red eyes they look like they're stoned lol! Still good work here
GoombaPie Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2012
i LOVE this! (especially Wario, because i've always loved Wario but hated that Waluigi even exists)
