The following clips are from the recent news story on the death of the famed videogame icon, Retro Mario.
Viewers be cautioned. Some footage may disturb you. Some may even shock you. Viewer discretion is advised.


THIS JUST IN. Famous videogame star and actor, Retro Mario, has been found dead in his appartment!
"No one knows the reason why, yet," states police chief, J.J. Jingleheimerschmidt, "but after a full autopsy, we
should have the cause of death fully realized."

Millions of fans and people of relation to the diseased star have gathered at the base of the condiminium at which
Retro Mario was staying. Screams of sorrow from gamers, tears of loss from the family members, and twisted smiles from the sadists can be seen throughout the crowd.
The death of their beloved Italian friend has obviously hit them hard.

*Reporters start shouting* Look! It's Princess Peach! GET THE CAMERA! GET THE CAMERA!
Princess! Princess Peach! Can we have a word...! *the princess ducks into a limousine while shielding her face from cameras*
Princess! Wait! *two reporters are flattened by the limousine as it drives off*.
Fox News:

"Haha, you're right John! His brother might do pretty well!"

"I'm always right, Doreen. I'm the smart one on this show"

"Haha, indubitably. Haha"

"So, anyway, what I was saying was that his brother could possibly replace him. Sure, it'd be weird playing a game called Super Luigi, but at least we wouldn't be without a Mario bros game"

"Luigi already has his own game, John, haha. It's called Luigi's Mansio...."

"Shut up, Doreen."

THIS JUST IN...AGAIN. The autopsy has been run on Retro Mario's lifeless corpse. It has been confirmed that the cause of death
was overdose on '1UP' Mushrooms.

"I never knew he was a crack-head," whimpers Retro Mario's mom, "I always thought that cavorting around with that Peach floozy was bad enough, but drug-addiction? What did I do wrong raising that boy? *sob*"

"Mama mia! 1Up 'Shrooms?" cries Luigi Mario, "I knew-a he was taking them, but I thought-a that it was-a just-a for health-a reasons!"

"Oh my!" squeaks Princess Peach, her pink cheeks paling to a sickly green, "the Mario I knew would never do that kind of thing."

"He had it coming, the bastard" grumbles King Bowser.
Fox News:

Tonight on Hannity, news on Retro Mario's death and who'll be replacing him.
A lost step-brother named Super Mario steps up to take his diseased family member's place. Will he do better than his predecessor, or will he crash and burn in a fiery blaze
of epic failure? Find out, on Hannity, *Opening news-theme-music montage*

"So Mr. Luigi, what're your opinions on this on this Super Mario? How does it feel to have a family member step up into stardom?"

"Well-a, it's actually quite-a nice. This-a Super guy has-a treated me better than any of my family ever did-a, considering the fact-a that Retro would-a beat-a me up all the time-a. What I like-a about Super is-a that he-a treats me like an actual human-a being, so he-a is more of a brother to me-a than Retro ever was-a."

"That's interesting."

"Quite. It-a does feel-a strange at some points, you know-a, having some-a family member that-a I had
never heard-a of or met-a take-a the place-a of a lost loved-a one, but I-a feel like I'll get-a used to it-a in-a due time."

"Alright, well, we're out of time. Thank you for your time, Mr. Luigi."

"It-a was my-a pleasure."

Aaaaand this is what happens when you have artists/skinners block. I really, really hate not being able to come up with a good idea. It makes me feel
unproductive and lazy D:

Anyhoo, yeah yeah, I know this isn't the most original idea ever. I just wanted to do my own rendition of the classic form of Mario.
I had a lot of fun doing the palette for this skin. It took a good few tries before I could get rid of some uncomfortable eye-burning colors and make the
whole thingy look groovy. And before you ask me HOW I did the hue shifting, please let me say that I have no idea. There's no special method. There's no
secret. It's all a matter mixing hue shifting with experimentation to get a strange but nice color harmony. Nothing special.

As usual, the palette is kept on the skin file. Feel free to use it at your discretion.:)
