Well, this is what happens when one gets bored during the day. I took every one of Mario's power ups and transformed them into a series of cards, and each power up has two sets of cards. Not only that, but I've divided them each into sets. Every two rows is a different set. There are 146 cards in all. :D

Mario, Super Mario, Mega Mario, Mini Mario, Costume Mario, Skinny Mario, Big Mario

Yes. The next big addition will probably be a Cappy series - though I need to see what sort of stipulations Cappy's Capture ability has in order to accurately portray the powers.

I am not sure if you are aware but the baby bubble, balloon and blowing yoshi eggs are switched color to each either.

Thiese were not only seen in the e3 2012 trailer but they are also in nabbits house while the glowing yoshi egg was in the final game which is also glowing.

Pretty noice! Is this every power up? Or just the cool ones?
Also, why are there 2 of every power up? Not bad, just asking... is it to showcase the power?

:iconthecynicalpoet:
TheCynicalPoet Featured By Owner May 4, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks, man! To my knowledge, this is every power-up unless I have missed an obscure one somewhere along the line. And yeah - there's two of each to sort of demonstrate their abilities. The first one is sort of the "primary" card, and the second one is the "ability" card.

Probably will just snap it onto DA, and If a Luigi one comes along, then the same will happen.

Nice profile pic yo!

Skinny Mario should be way taller and... more skinny. To the point it looks akward.

TheCynicalPoet Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks! Not to drop any hints, but you might see more poses of it soon...;)

And Skinny Mario is an abomination to the eyes. From what I understand, the Skinny Mario is under the effects of the Luigi Mushroom, which is supposed to emulate Luigi's characteristics (height, jumping ability, and lack of traction) - so I was trying to capitalize more on those qualities than his 8-bit appearance...

...I have to make it more awkward, huh? ;.;

Yes you need to make it an eyesore... Just try to mimmik sprites on MFGG that get accepted when the mods make us revise our sheets (Cheapshots are the best shots)

ooooooOH snap. You went there. Actually, I've rarely ever had issues with mods on MFGG. The most trouble I had was when an old account of mine got muted for a comment I had made even after I had apologized without prompting. Though I do wish their quality control would run a bit more consistently between mods.

I think its just a problem that all of us "style spriters" (Those of us who choose to mimmic the style of a game instead of making custom styled sprites) have.

I just find issues that they really hammer down on all of us, not just me. Cyberolf, You, Chris etc.

Yet they allow the stupidest junk as long as it is custom.

Ill get you eventually 0_O

I don't think I've ever been insulted for being a style spriter to my knowledge, but I've definitely seen other people bashed for it. I mean, a sprite is a sprite regardless of what style it's in. 

And I completely agree about the stupid junk. I'm glad MFGG has some lenient standards, but half the custom stuff on the website would never be used. 

Not if you can't catch me. c:<

MFGG makes it so much harder on us, they allow all this crap, but god forbid that we have 2 sprites worth of blank space. I don't really post there anymore, not sence they declined my Samus sprites saying that I copied them... It litterally took me 2 months for those :(

I KNEW I FORGOT ABOUT SOMETHING. Mario Maker introduced a lot of new concepts - which is pretty cool considering how it's another take on older Mario installments. I'll crank them out soon. o:

I can't wait to play it, either! I just need to get my hands on that damn fourth Chaos Emerald a Wii U once I feel comfortable enough spending money on it. And I love seeing all the new retro-styled sprites. Oh, how easy it is to please us spriters.

Here's something to add to The Accessory Series: Kuribo's Heel from Super Mario Maker.

And to add to the first two rows: Skinny Mario from Super Mario Maker (which is supposed to be Mario's head on a recolored Luigi body) ;)

Oh, I see! Well, there's no official sprite sheet for them - it's a recolor of existing Mario sprites. You're free to copy the color pallet from the image if you wish. I also have a single sprite of Invincibility Mario on my Mario Sprite Sheet here you can feel free to use: thecynicalpoet.deviantart.com/…

Are you ever going to release the ones on here that aren't already here, or on MFGG?
I really wish you did.
You are AMAZING at making sprites, and especially at animating them!
You make the art come alive!
I really wished you made more animations, AND sprites :)

The power-ups that I have released on here and MFGG are the only ones that I have a completed sheet with. A lot of these sprites are either poses I made specifically for this card series or from other spriters. One day I'm hoping to work up the motivation to start making new power-up sheets. I just recently got a job though, so I'll have to find some free time specifically for spriting. Thank you very much though! It means a lot. :D
