Character Fan Art Feature: Wario

Welcome to our first feature of character fan art. The geek umbrella covers a number of different mediums from TV to comics to gaming, each featuring a range of beloved characters. To celebrate the diversity of our interests I intend to bring a regular selection of different artists take on one character. 

Today’s chosen character is Wario, I know, an odd choice, but I didn’t want to go for the obvious characters first.  Making his first appearance in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins for the Gameboy back in 1992, this antagonist has gone onto have his own range of games.

Interesting fact I didn’t know: The name Wario is a combination of Mario and the Japanese adjective warui meaning ‘bad’ thus a ‘bad’ Mario. I just thought they had turned the M upside down. 

Let’s start with a cutesie version of this bad boy, Poutty Wario by sillysimeongurl:
