Mario vs. Banjo and Kazooie by SebastianvonBuchwald Mario vs. Banjo and Kazooie by SebastianvonBuchwald
BLOG - TUMBLR - TWITTER - COMMISSIONS

This one took much longer than I expected it to (and this time it wasn't just procrastination) but I hope the end result will have been worth the wait. It's one of those few times where the finished piece comes pretty close to what I had in my head when I started making it. Rather proud of that background too. I slaved over it for quite a while.

Could've used some blood maybe.

Progress animation here: [link]

Either way, I have indeed decided to alternate between poll winners and my own choices. That way I can get lesser known characters in and have you guys decide for the better known ones.

The schedule will be as follows:

Dirk the Daring from Dragon's Lair (my pick), Lara Croft (poll), The Kid from Bastion possibly with Mario in Hammer Bros. suit (my pick), Doomguy (poll), ???, Rayman (poll).

Have you heard? People from Rare formed a new company called Playtonic Games and they have a new game coming out called Yooka Laylee.

Yeah, I heard about their hugely successful Kickstarter and I'm very much looking forward to seeing how that game turns out. At the very least, the few tracks they've released sound fantastic.

Banjo and Kazooie are traitors, they deserve every punch and kick Mario gives them.

Banjo and Kazooie. To Nintendo, they moved to X-Box.

Este vs. es el que más sueño con ver algún día en Super Smash Bros.Heart #1
 
Lástima que Microsoft no permite ni a Banjo y Kazooie brillar como lo hicieron en Nintendo. Ù_Ú 
Rage  No, I disagree!

Nice piece. They actually look like they're just rough housing and not actually fighting. You can tell by the smiles.

But either way, it's a good work of art.

:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Mario does kinda look he's smiling but my intention was to only have Banjo and Kazooie smiling because they're overpowering him two to one. But your interpretation works too. :)

Supermynci Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2013
Oh. I see. So Mario's smiling because he has an ace up his sleeve? Or maybe he's about to get serious? :^)
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
It wasn't really my intention to have him smiling. I just fail at art sometimes. :(

No you don't. Stop hating on yourself. You're way better most of the artists I've talked with nowadays.

Banjo and Kazooie has gone poshest after being kidnapped by Master Chief! Now Mario must stop his former best friend before causing any more damage!

(Rareware with Microsoft. Fans want Nintendo to be with Rareware once again.)

Awesome idea putting them on top of the mountain!

What became of Rare was nothing short of a tragedy. Oh, well.
And hey, glad you like it. :)

Mario basically loses his hat in ever picture

Pretty much. I pretty hatless Mario forever. And the hat flying away is always good for adding a sense of motion to the piece. :)

When you realize that B-K is twice the adventure that Mario 64 was (even thou I still love the latter), this is really hilarious to look at.
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Yeah, I love the original B&K. I have extremely fond memories of it, more than Mario 64 maybe. ;)

Funny thing thou, I never actually owned either games or a N64 :P I only owned Mario 64 DS and Banjo-Kazooie on the 360. (I miss Rare :( I mean the old Rare, not the new Avatar eccentric Rare)
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Well, I'm guessing Mario 64 on the DS is a whole different experience than the N64 version. BK HD is probably the same though. I played them both on my N64. Great games and good times. :)

Mario 64 DS isn't that much different. There are some new things in it such as being able to play as Luigi, Yoshi, and Wario. But other than that, pretty much the same.

I mean control-wise. I can't imagine it'd play as well on the without a proper analog stick. ;)

Know about Space Quest? It's a Sierra game.

I've never played it and that always makes it more difficult to do in a fight. But hey, who knows? :)

Dirk the Daring from Dragon's Lair? I heard and watched the videos of that game, but never actually played it.
