Mario vs. Big Daddy by SebastianvonBuchwald Mario vs. Big Daddy by SebastianvonBuchwald
A was a little lost as to how to handle this at first but it's quickly becoming one of my favorites now.

Two things I like about this one:

1) It's actually the first one where part of the figure is cropped which is a result of me thinking a little more about composition from the beginning instead of creating two floating figures and then throwing a background behind them.
2) I changed the shading up a bit in that there is different colored light being reflected on the figures instead of just gradually darkening of the base color.

The background is obviously inspired by the cover to the first BioShock and it was nice to be able to put a little storytelling in there. I like how it's the calm before the storm and it just made sense to have the fight be over a Little Sister, even if Mario ends up looking like a dick in the process.

Ryu is up next and the line art is done but I'm gonna wait a bit before I tackle it because there are still other things I want to draw (and commissions too). I'm trying to get these to be a weekly thing at the very least though.

I don't think Mario will have any chance.

well this only way i see Mario having a chance at this is if he had some power-ups. i don't think he can punch through that armor.
