The world's most famous plumbers get new, stylish reinterpretations in these 45 awesome pieces of fanart.

Despite not having a single artistic bone in my body, I think fan art is a really, really cool idea. Oh sure, for every awesome artist on sites like LiveJournal and deviantART, you've got three people posting scribbles of their Kingdom Hearts x Sonic the Hedgehog x LOST crossover furry self-insert, but that's a risk we all have to take.

And what better subject for a video-game-enthusiast fanartist than one of the most popular company mascots of all time (and his slightly less popular brother)? The Design Inspiration has 45 of the coolest Super Mario Bros. interpretations I've seen anywhere on the Internet, all by some very talented artists.

You've got the gritty realism, the awesome action shot, the classical cartoon, and a bunch more. I'm actually having a hard time choosing a favorite, but I think I'm leaning towards this one. It's just so happy.

This makes me hungry for more There Will Be Brawl.

The mugshots kind of creep me out.

Kind of funny when you think about it - arguably gaming's most popular mascot is a plumber. A freakin' plumber.

Why the hate on furry fanart?

...okay, couldn't say (type) that with a straight face.

All the same, these are pretty good, and a couple are genuinely funny.

I like this one
They're all great though. At least I found my new desktop background now.

Oh, those were nifty.

This one looks like Luigi is about to take on a Big Daddy.

Well yeah people love plumbers just look at Joe the plumber.

Great work! Here's another amazing collection of Mario fanart.

I have to say "Wow" on a lot of those. I really wish Nintendo would pick up on some of those more realistic art styles for a game or two.

All amazing. Almost makes me which I had any sort of talent. But then I realize I'd actually have to use it, which makes me glad I don't.

Dude, some of these pictures are awesome! I'm glad I tripped over this thread.

Thanks for bumping this. I only glanced at it last time, but now I just saved all the pictures so I can make a bitchin' desktop collage.
