The Final Battle by ClayPita The Final Battle by ClayPita
Okay, so after I finished my Abitur I bought a 3DS and Super Mario 3D Land and, what should I say, the game is awesome! The mix of the gameplays from Super Mario Galaxy and New Super Mario Bros. was a nice experience. But the best thing of the game was by far the final battle with the King of Koopas himself, his Unholiness Lord Bowser!! :iconkingbowserplz: Actually that battle was so great that I was inspired to try and make a fanart of it, the result of that effort being this piece here. I haven't found my own style with digital drawing yet, so I'm still experimenting a little. For instance, the outlines of this drawing where made with the magic of the pen tool, but only Mario's outlines are coloured. It's yours to decide what looks better. :)
Now about the battle itself (OMG SPOILERS!!): This battle is truly awesome, mostly because it's not really a battle. Mario has to run through a course that mostly consist of crumbling platforms and has to avoid Bowser's fireballs, spiked iron balls and barrels, always in danger of falling into the bottomless abyss beneath, all while giant boulders keep falling out of the sky. And it even gets better! After you defeat Bowser you think you've won and move on to rescue Princess Peach, when suddenly Bowser jumps back on screen and starts spamming you with his new attack, the happily coloured fireball shown in the picture. Not only does this purple-pink stream of fire look incredibly awesome and move at high speed, it also emits an awesome soaring sound effect and it destroys the platforms you're walking on!! I mean, seriously! HOW BADASS IS THAT?!? :iconexplodelaplz: Awesome enough to make a fanart of it, that's for sure. And that is why I have come to name this awesome attack....the Flare Beam!! YES! BEHOLD AND TREMBLE IN FEAR, AS THE MIGHTY FLARE BEAM CONSUMES ALL!!!!
But seriously, this Final Boss Battle was one of the best I've ever fought and especially one of the best Bowser Battles. The epic music, the fantastic stage that crumbles apart, the desperate atmosphere, Bowser's unexpected return after you first punch him into the abyss and his BADASS FLARE BEAM perfectly describe the terror and complete destruction that is Bowser!
And yes, I do know that he wasn't that gigantic in the original game, but I felt like increasing his size a little bit to further emphasize Lord Bowser's might! :)
Anyway, I hope you like it. Took me long enough to make after all...

I do not own Mario, Bowser or the AWESOMENESS THAT IS THE FLARE BEAM!!

That looks epic. I love this fight and it's music, which is sadly underappreciated.

That's a good drawing of Super Mario in a Tanookie suit against his foe King Bowser Koopa you've done there. b(^u^)d

I think it's definitely one of the best, much better than the final battles from Mario Galaxy and Galaxy 2. Even though the ones from Super Mario Sunshine and Paper Mario were good, too.

I hate that Damn final battle the first part the fireballs are normal and the second part is when the fireballs grow 20X Larger and they home in on you!

...they home in on you? Are you sure? I've never noticed something like that. I think they just fly faster so it's harder to dodge them.

Are you sure? :iconkirbyishappyplz: (personally, the best games Nintendo ever made were for the N64)

The N64 is better for nostalgia and had pretty good games (like Kirby 64, Smash Bros. or Paper Mario), but I'd still never trade my 3DS for it.

To unlock that you have to finish the game as Luigi, I think.

Yes, but you have to do the final battle against Bowser and watch the credits with him.

Yay, danke! Leider kriegt es nicht so viele Views, wie ich gehofft hatte. :( Ich meine, so schlecht finde ich es auch nicht, und ich hatte gedacht, das ich dafür ein bisschen mehr Aufmerksamkeit kriege... naja, wahrscheinlich erwarte ich zu viel. Nächstes Mal vielleicht.

Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, ich weiß, ich soll zufrieden sein mit dem, was ich krieg, aber trotzdem! Ich hab gedacht, es kriegt mehr views, weil ich so stolz drauf war. Und meine anderen Sachen kriegen normalerweise mehr views. Ich mein, selbst meine Enton-Skulptur hat über 700 gekriegt. ENTON, MANN!! Und das hier kriegt nicht mal 300 zusammen. :tantrum:
...ja, ich bin etwas aufmerksamkeitsgeil geworden, gell? XD

Aber du hast Recht, dein "gezeichneter Scheiß" verdient echt mehr views. Vielleicht solltest du es in mehr Gruppen hochladen?

Keiji UND Portal? GEIL ALTER!!! Ich will es sehen und es haben und es anfassen und Marmelade draufschmieren und es aufessen!! :la:
...äh, ja. Apropo OC, ich bin grad dabei, ein paar neue zu erfinden, um meine "Strory" ein bisschen interessanter zu machen. Und die Charactere, die ich schon habe, muss ich wohl noch mal überarbeiten, weil sie ANSCHEINEND zu stereotypisch sind (Surferboy, Softie etc.). Eigentlich mag ich meine Charas ja so, wie sie sind, aber wenn ihre Persönlichkeiten wirklich so einfallslos sind, muss ich wirklich was machen. :XD:
