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 wasnít going to release a pack with only a handful of icons, nor would I be releasing something that I hadnít 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 voilŠ, the Super Mario Icons pack was born.

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


Mini-FAQ

Whatís 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?
Itís 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 Iím 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 Iíll add it to the to-do list. I canít promise Iíll do it (some characters are just way to tricky or donít even have nice quality artwork for them), but I promise Iíll 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 youíre feeling chatty, feel free to add a comment, too! I love comments!

Can I use them on my project?
Sorry, but Iím only allowing the use of the icons on personal-use pictures only. Iíd 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 Nintendoís 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.

You can use them to change folder and shortcut icons. Just save the icons somewhere on your computer, then right-click the folder/shortcut you want to choose, go to the proprieties, and there should be the option to change the icon somewhere.

Well, unfortunately, I'm only allowing their use as icons. Hence the category they were put in.

You didn't make those! Nintendo did! Hence why they're in the Mario Galaxy manual!

It's ppl like you who keep good ppl like him from doing us favors like this.

Don't be an asshole Blueburn67.

It's art that he made. Whether it's his own art or fan-art doesn't matter. So respect his wishes.

It says in the description:

"All the icons were made by me, they are not official artwork."

I painted those myself using Photoshop. If you want to use the official artwork, feel free to do so, but don't use my artwork without permission.

this is good news actually
it means people don't see the difference between the real nintendo and the fanart, meaning this fanart just stopped being fanart and has risen above the usual, mondane and entered the league of potential competitors (well let²s not exagerate, but you²re on your way)

you just got the best compliment you can get

to prove your awesomness make a new character and shove it in his face
