I like the accent of wool there, but I'm having troubles in defining whether it supposed to be two or one object (along with the text). Overall the composition is strong altough you got to notice the Mario's colorful outfit plus the green to yellow ball. It could be a good thing, depending on what was the idea or in other words, your motivation for doing so Also the way you used blur on background plus all those pixels, gotta love them!
funny, I wouldn't have expected you to like it It's actually a woollen sphere with a paper cutout of mario stuck onto it - that means it's basically one entity, I'll upload another (unedited) picture tomorrow (to my scraps) where you can see that more easily.
yeah, that i figured, yet it is possible to cut the mario or alternate colors The choice of accents of some sort (or objects, if you will), that's what interests me. And hey, man, staying in simple boundaries of one kind of art is not going with the spirit I mean unless you've great technique, please, by all means! But i guess it's just like with music, you gotta try new stuff.
