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.

Thanks! My PC is messed up so it'll be a while until the next one. I did get started on it though and I'll give you a hint as to who it is: it's Pyramid Head. ;)

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.

Maybe there's a metal cap lying around.  ;)

:iconpokefan117:
Pokefan117 Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2013
yea the steel cap could help the drill not make a hole in him but even then i dont think he could do much but defend. 


A fire flower might work, stars are out of hte question for a fair fight, and i'd say a super shroom would be also good (but not fair)
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
I don't think the fire flower would help a lot in Rapture because of it being underwater and everything.

Mario definitely has had experience with this sort of fight. Still, that drill is serious business. :)

Big daddy will win, Mario would probably hop and hop. Until big daddy hits him with his drill. =^=
I'm not a very big fan of Mario.

:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
This is the best advice I can offer you: never ask somebody to create characters for you, always do it yourself. Even if you don't love them at first, just work on them until you do. It's a very personal thing. :)
