Fan art comes in all sorts of forms, including extravagant structures composed of 14,000 painted toothpicks. That's not a sentence we get to write every day.
The start screen of Super Mario Bros. on the NES is iconic, to put it mildly, and a keen fan has taken the unusual approach of reconstructing it with toothpicks. The creation from Twitter user BitBitKorry is below.
Constructed over the course of five days, the video below shows how it was done; it looks rather complicated, with printouts, spreadsheets and a lot of painting.
A bit trickier than painting a Mario moustache on an egg, anyway.
Thanks to Benson for the heads up.
And you thought going to Florida for spring break meant you were crazy? Yep.
Pretty cool, though.
That probably took a lot of glue........
I like that it's got some depth too, like a diorama.
That's pretty cool, though it must have been expensive to buy 14000 toothpicks, glue/hot glue, and paint.
A. Mazing. Words... they escape me...
Now that's skill!!! I'd love to see one done for Mario 3 and Tetris!!
Must've been a real ... Toothache.... To get all those fine details so exact...
