Super Mario Icons by sandrodcpereira Super Mario Icons by sandrodcpereira
Now with 130 icons!

Head over to this page to find out what happened throughout 2011 and where the new icons come from!

How the Super Mario Icons came to be

It all started back in January 2008, when I submitted a desktop picture in which a couple of Mario themed icons were shown. I had never intended to release them, but the people voiced their opinion: they wanted the icons, or else!

I knew immediately what I had to do, but I wasn’t going to release a pack with only a handful of icons, nor would I be releasing something that I hadn’t done myself, of course.

So, I got my hands dirty: in March 2008, I painted fifteen icons, packed them in a pretty compressed file and voilá, the Super Mario Icons pack was born.

Ever since that grand day, I’ve been updating the pack with more and more icons. Eventually, I plan to have millions of them included! :omfg:


Mini-FAQ

What’s in the download file?
The file contains 130 high-resolution Windows ICO files, Mac ICNS files and 256×256 PNG files, plus the obligatory Read Me file, which includes a detailed update history.

How do I put your awesome icons to use?
It’s funny you should ask. Click here if you're a Windows user, and all your questions shall be answered. If you're on a Mac, I'm sorry, but I have no idea how it works...

Are the icons official artwork?
No. My intention was to make them look indistinguishable from the real deal, and I’m pretty happy with the results.

How often do you update the icon pack?
As often as I can. You can probably see by the update history that the updates have become less and less frequent. Unfortunately, as my free time gets eaten by school and work, I tend to spend all that is left on original projects rather than this one, but rest assured there are updates in the works!

Can you make a [insert character or item you want done here] icon?
If it fits into the Mario universe, sure I can. Just drop a comment or an email and I’ll add it to the to-do list. I can’t promise I’ll do it (some characters are just way to tricky or don’t even have nice quality artwork for them), but I promise I’ll try. If your request gets done, keep in mind that it will be included in the next pack update, rather than being added individually.

How can I thank you for the lovely icon pack?
You can thank me by spreading the word. Tell your friends about them; send them to your brother; add them to your favorites. If you’re feeling chatty, feel free to add a comment, too! I love comments!

Can I use them on my project?
Sorry, but I’m only allowing the use of the icons on personal-use pictures only. I’d love to let you all use them in whatever you pleased, but regardless of the fact that I did paint the icons myself; all the characters and items depicted in them are still Nintendo’s property, not mine.

How can I be as awesome as you?
Herding llamas is always the answer.


Update History

Updated on March 25, 2008: Added a bunch of mushrooms and stuff.

Updated on November 6, 2008: Huge update, thirty-one new icons! That more than doubles the icons on the pack! My way of thanking you all for the +10,000 downloads and +200 favorites. :D

Updated on April 25, 2010: Nine new icons, including a personal favorite, Raccoon Mario from Super Mario Bros 3! This update also introduces the Super Mario Icons pack for Mac. Get it here!

Updated on May 26, 2010: Apparently, the Boo icon file was making Avast cry like a little baby. Rest assured, that was a false positive! I've updated the pack with a new file that doesn't ring any alarms. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Updated on December 28, 2010: The Mac and Windows version of the icons are now found on one single pack. This makes it better for me to manage it. Also, the Super Mario Icons Extravaganza was announced!

Updated on January 1, 2012: 66 new icons, thanks to the Super Mario Icons Extravaganza!

=================================

Important note!

Once again, Avast is being a little bitch crying false positive over the Boo ICO file. This time, I can't seem to find a solution to the problem, but rest assured: there are no virus in the pack.

I've tested the file with other anti-virus software and, of course, none of them register anything wrong with that specific file or the whole pack.

I'll keep looking for solutions either way, and if you know of any way to fix this, please tell me.

It's a false positive. It has happened before with the very same icon. I fixed it back then, but for some reason it has happened again.

I'm pretty sure you're running Avast, because no other anti-virus software is saying the file's infected. I still haven't found a way around it, but I'll keep looking into it.

Thanks for the head's up, anyway!

Sorry, dude, that's no font. I just edited the original logo and added a couple of custom characters to make the Icons' logo. :no:

Não há nenhum alarme a apitar por aqui, por isso diria que é seguro fazer o download. Já não seria a primeira vez que um programa anti-vírus acusava vírus no pack, erradamente.

Consegues-me dizer qual o ficheiro em específico que acusa?

Bom, já dei uma vista de olhos e parece que é o ícone do Boo que está a acusar infecção.

Já não é a primeira vez que isto acontece e não percebo porquê. O meu computador não está infectado, e o ícone também não. É sem dúvida um falso positivo, por isso podes fazer o download sem receios.

Logo que tiver oportunidade de o fazer, actualizo o pack com uma versão "limpa". Obrigado pelo aviso! ;)

Isso é bom :). Mas só pa te perguntar, qual é o antivirus que tens? O que me detectou foi o Avast 5 (mais recente)

:iconsandrodcpereira:
sandrodcpereira Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
Desculpa a demora, estive em hibernação por uns tempos! :P

Também uso o Avast, e também acusou. Experimentei o ficheiro noutros computadores com outros programas anti-vírus (agora não me lembro quais eram, ao certo), e nenhum deles deu sinal.

Já não é a primeira vez que me acontece algo do género com o Avast, o que me leva a questionar a qualidade da protecção que me dá...

I'm thinking about doing a series of mini-tutorials on my site, explaining how I create the icons!

Still, it's just like painting anything else: you create the shape, add color and shade, and that's it! ;)

Oh, for that you can use a Photoshop plugin (just google it) or Axialis' Icon Workshop, which is my personal choice. ;)
