Clash of the Titans - Mario VS Link Collaboration by Zimeta

Looks like we have our complete set!
So, I'll give everyone until Friday to make additional Links and Marios if they want. BUT. If the count is uneven by Friday, then we'll only be able to use some of them. Good luck!

:star: Rules!

-- Each member of our group can do only TWO Marios and TWO Links for our collab. You can choose to do both, or just one or the other. It's up to you.

-- Marios must be facing right, and Links must be facing left. This way when I put it together it'll look like they're about to clash -- like an army! For a visualization of this set-up, look here:

Clash of the Titans Collab by Zimeta

-- You may do any canon version of Mario and Link. This means anything from red overalls Mario, blue overalls Mario, Paper Mario, frog-suit Mario, Wind waker Link, Twilight Princess Link, bunny Link, Goron Link etc. :eyes: Have fun and be creative!

-- But don't make up a version of Mario or Link that doesn't exist. That means no gender bending, no made-up suits for Mario.
This doesn't mean that you can't stylize the characters, though. If you want to draw Link with a beer belly,  or just add little details to their outfits, be my guest. :XD:

-- You can add Yoshi or Epona under Mario and Link.

-- Mario and Link can be holding items from their games.

-- DO NOT COPY OFFICIAL ARTWORK. No tracing, no copying, no recreating. Everyone and their mom has seen the artwork for these games, and we don't need to see it again for this collab!

-- Traditional mediums, digital mediums or cosplays will be allowed. (If you have a cosplay, try to take a photo on a white background. If you can't, this will be the one circumstance where I will cut out your picture for you. :3 )

-- Anyone can join in. I don't care about "skill level". You're all great artists, and I love my collaborations to have variation.

-- You may do repeats. In other words, if someone already did something like a Bee Mario or a Zora Link, feel free to do another one!

-- Your artwork must be new, or at least completed after this collab was created. Only deviations submitted after 10-12-11 will be accepted.

-- Your artwork must be colored.

-- Your drawing must be full-bodied. I can't use a bust or a head.

-- Your drawing must be on a blank background so I can cut it out and place it on the image with the other participants. It would also help if you could send me a file with your character on a separate layer from your background. That way I won't have to cut it out. If you don't have this ability, then don't worry. A white BG will do just fine. But if you do, either upload the file here or send it to my E-mail:

-- The pose can be anything you desire as long as Mario's facing right, and Link is facing left.

-- The characters do not have to be in a profile view. Just as long as the general direction they're facing is correct.

-- If you make a mistake and have your Mario or Link facing the wrong way, I could flip it for you, but you may not like it backwards.

-- If you plan to make a Mario AND a Link, and you want to submit them on the same deviation, go right ahead! Then you can just submit it to either one of the folders (see below), and I'll just copy it into the other for you.

-- Don't upload anything beyond PG13. This collab is for everyone to enjoy!

-- Upload your image to our "Clash of the Titans" Link or Mario folder in the group's gallery to enter. If you're not part of the group, but you still want to enter, send us a note and I'll have it added for you.

Marios go here:…
Links go here:…

-- Once we have -hopefully- 50 Marios and 50 Links I'll assign a due-date to the project and end it.

-- There must be an even amount of Marios and Links by the end, though. So if we reach the due-date and it's uneven, I may call on a few people to make extras.

-- The best artworks will be featured in the very middle of the project! So be sure to put effort and appeal into your artwork.

I know the Links part of it is full now, but can I still do one? I'd do two Marios as well to try and balance it out.
Zimeta Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Only if you draw the Marios first. :)
