Mario vs. Dirk the Daring by SebastianvonBuchwald Mario vs. Dirk the Daring by SebastianvonBuchwald
BLOG - TUMBLR - TWITTER - COMMISSIONS

I can't remember why I decided to use Dirk as my next character. I've never played Dragon's Lair and, for all intents and purposes, it seems like a horrible game but something about the character design was appealing enough that I wanted to give it a shot.

I was gonna have Mario swinging into Dirk at first but it seemed interesting to do a role reversal with Mario stealing the Daphne from Dirk so I went with that.

No progress animation this time. I'm running late for work and I'd have too many layers to wade through.

Well, Dragon's Lair isn't that bad. It's actually quite good.

I haven't played it myself but I remember hearing or reading that the button timing on some of the stuff is weird. And then there's the heavy memorization stuff. I dunno, maybe I'll check it out someday. :)

Did it ever come across for you to do a Mario versus no more hero character? At this rate, he would probably be the LEADER of the UAA. If I had to choose for you, I would say that I would like to see what you can do with the idea of Mario versus Margaret Moonlight.

Yeah, NMH has crossed my mind. It'd definitely have to be Travis though. I dunno, we'll see.

What about Mario vs Wreck it Ralph or Felix Fix it jr?
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Well, I'm only doing Mario vs. original video game characters for now. So no Wreck it Ralph in spite of the heavy video game inspirations. :)

Do mario vs rayman
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
I ran a poll a while back as to who Mario would fight next and Rayman, unfortunately, came in last. So it's coming but it'll be a while. :)

Ever thought of Mario vs Gorden Freeman?
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Yeah, many times. I absolutely love Half-Life (and Valve) but I just can't seem to come up with a good take on the fight. It'll definitely happen once I get a good idea though. :)

crowbar

:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
I was thinking more of the Gravity Gun but yeah, it'll be crowbar and/or Gravity Gun for sure. ;)

How about Mario attacking Gorden from one of those transporter portals from the first game?
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
I really want to implement that Gravity Gun somehow though. I dunno, I'm sure I'll figure something out eventually.

Dragons Lair, that is the best! XD

You draw the best figures, im best at shading but my drawing skills need work.

I wonder if you drew the vines on paper before coloring them digitally.

Keep up the good work!

Dirk's gotta be careful using that sword while Mario still has HIS Princess. lol

Who else could be in this, Q-Bert? :rofl:
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
The vines were done digitally, usually only the characters in these are done on paper. And yeah, I've definitely considered Q-Bert but Lara Croft is next. ;)

I figured, great job as always! :D

Wait, Lara Croft?!

*spits soda*

Spoiler! :O

Yup, Lara is next. I have the layout ready too. Just a matter of getting pencil on paper now. :)

The game play of Dragon's Lair could be described as a string of Quick Time Events thrown at the player in fast succession and with little time to react between one another. Great animation but crap game, and all that effort for a pretty lame ending.

Seems Mario figured out he wasn't going anywhere with Peach so he decided to try his luck with an even more dim witted princess. =P
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Yeah, Dragon's Lair seems to be the original QTE game and yeah, it doesn't seem like a particularly good game to me either. :)

As someone pointed out, let's not forget Donkey Kong Jr. ;)

This is amazing!

It really brings back memories of when Mario actually played the role of "villain" in 1982's Donkey Kong Jr. Dragon's Lair hit the arcades the very next year, so it actually could work with the continuity of Mario's darker days!

Man, is Dragon's Lair really that old? I kinda forget sometimes. And yeah, Mario tends to look like the bad guy in these fights. Wouldn't have it any other way. )

Mario should face THE GODDAMN BATMAN!!!!!

No contest. Batman would win. :)

I meant for your Mario verses series you should draw Mario facing off in Gotham City against the Batman
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Yes, I know you meant that. I just meant to say that Batman beats all. ;)
But seriously, it's a great suggestion but I'm only doing Mario vs. original video game characters now for. And no Nintendo characters, we can see those fights in Smash Bros. already. :)

Ok then Mario vs Gordon Freeman from Half life.
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
That's more likely. I love the Half-Life series but it might be a while since my Mario Versus queue is quite full. :)

I have a question about these pictures. Did Mario just showed up and started to attack every non-nintendo character? Or is it the other characters and Mario just try to defend himself?

Also can you have Kratos, Ezio, Conke, Sweet Tooth?
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
I like think that for each battle the situation is different. In some cases Mario seems like the agressor but in others he could be the victim. Hopefully these pieces will let you imagine your own backstory. :)

As for your suggestions, Kratos and Sweet Tooth I'll definitely get to at some point for sure (love them both!). The other two might take a while. :)

This is really awesome! It's nice to see some quality fan art for Dirk!

Thanks! Glad you like it. And yeah, I try not to make only the popular characters with these fights, but also those that don't get enough love. :)

That's good! Dirk would certainly be glad to hear that ^_^

I've noticed you occasionally take suggestions for these fights. If you still are, my suggestion is Ratchet from the Ratchet and Clank series.
