Apricots (from Super Mario Galaxy) by The-Longfall-of-1979 Apricots (from Super Mario Galaxy) by The-Longfall-of-1979
"Then one day, while the girl sat 
sipping tea, a tiny apricot-colored 
planet appeared on the horizon.From the planet, another Luma of 
the same color emerged. 

"Do you two know each other?!" 
the girl asked the two Lumas 
gleefully. Despite the girl's 
excitement, they seemed uneasy.

The two Lumas neither drew closer 
nor backed away from each other. 
Instead, they just stared. 

Then one Luma broke the silence."My mama!"At once, the apricot Luma parroted 
back, "My mama! My mama!"

"My mama!" "My mama!"The two Lumas began to dance 
around the girl frantically, and 
neither showed any sign of stopping.The girl was so charmed by this 
adorable scene that she couldn't 
help but laugh."

- An excerpt from Rosalina's Storybook


Hello! I haven't done any video game artwork in a long long long [long] while-- but lo and behold, here's a piece! I picked up Super Mario Galaxy again [a game which I love, btw] and I was going through the stages and I went into the library only to be gobsmacked by one of the most adorable [and wonderfully illustrated] storybooks in the many I've read. :D I just had to draw a scene from Rosalina's storybook- I couldn't, absolutely could not resist. It was such a simple style, so it was really quite fun compared to the slightly more detailed things I make myself. :nod: The only thing was that I finished it so quickly! Prints will be available as May's new releases come out. :nod:

Well, I hope you enjoy. :) A few upcoming things include some Frozen arts, a very lovely Doctor Who piece, and maybe a pinch of Star Wars if I can manage it.

UPDATE: This artwork is now available on the official store, Redbubble, and Society6!

I never did get to play this (so I just may need to when I can), but this is fantastic illustration!

I loved Rosalina's Storybook! The story was very adorable and heartwrenching. I loved the little Lumas, and the way you depicted this early scene! Wonderful job. :nod:
