Okay so. I don't really play videogames. I'm no good at them. That being said, I, like many kids belonging to my generation, owned at least one system at some point or another.
My mom and dad got me the NES when I was very young - and I grew up playing Mario Bros. and watching the cartoons. All my friends had SNES but we couldn't afford that one, but my grandparents had one... They let my little brother and I "borrow" it. For a very long time : ) A few years later, my little brother and I were very ill and my grandparents bought us an N64. We were so excited and it made things a little easier for us.
They gave us a few games too. We had Mario, Zelda, 007 and a couple more at that point. But my brother and I would play Mario Kart alot and we'd play it together - I was always Toad and he was always Yoshi
And to this day, Rainbow Road stands out to me. It was my favorite level; there was a very unique atmosphere - so ethereal. It was different than anything else. I loved the neon lights and colorful track against the endless pitch-black void of a sky - and everytime I think of it all, I can't help but remember that song! If you've played it, you know what I'm talking about too
It's where you go when you die ; )
This was drawn with Copic Markers and Multiliners. The paper I used was too big for my little scanner so some got cut off, and the color is a bit different. I also meant to draw the star-rails that line the track, but it looked too crowded with them so I skipped the whole thing. This picture was drawn with the sole intentions of pacifying my nostalgic urges : )
