Pure CSS animated 3D Super Mario Icon

After my latest CSS3 experiment without images (Internet Explorer Pure CSS Logo), a friend suggested to create an animated 3D Super Mario Icon based on the 3D Retro Mario GIF image by Cezkid.

Well, this is the result of two weeks of work – an animated 3D Super Mario Icon built completely in CSS3 without images.

Best viewed with Safari 5 & Chrome 9.

Chrome prior Version 9 renders in 2D only due to an older Webkit engine.
Opera 10.6, Firefox 3.6 and IE9 are not supported.

It’s based on top of my CSS 4D Framework I created therefor and will be released in the next few weeks (when it’s out of alpha).

Internet Explorer Pure CSS Logo

When I stumbled over David Desandro’s Opera CSS Logo and Zander Martineau’s Pure CSS Icons, I really liked their idea to create “art” only with CSS.

So here is my work, the All CSS Internet Explorer Logo, a logo built completely in CSS, without any graphics.

See the Demo (best viewed with Firefox 3.6 & Safari 5)
Chrome 5 has a lot of issues at the moment due to an older Webkit engine. CSS for Opera 10.6 and IE9 are coming soon. The CSS is a mess at the moment, I’ll clean it up later.
