Mario vs. Josef by SebastianvonBuchwald Mario vs. Josef by SebastianvonBuchwald
BLOG - TUMBLR - TWITTER - COMMISSIONS

This is how a lot of these fights happen: 1) I play a game, 2) I love it and 3) I want to draw something about it.

Machinarium's Josef posed a bit of a problem because he's not a fighter in the slightest. I contemplated the idea of having him use the gun/plunger item as a weapon but it seemed forced and there are too many gun-oriented characters as it is. (And let me save you a lot of headaches right now if you plan on playing this lovely game: the plunger is in the ceiling of your adjoining cell). Josef's only ability is being able to stretch to about twice his height and the only thing that could be used for in a fight is to strangle-hang someone. That was my starting point for this fight.

Reverse engineering Machinarium's beautiful visuals for the background was quite a bit of work and I got as close to the sun as I could in trying to imitate it.

Now I can finally start up on Mario vs. Banjo & Kazooie...

Well, I've done Mario vs. Old Snake [link] and Solid Snake vs. Max Payne [link] but yeah, I still plan on doing a Mario vs. (proper) Solid Snake at some point. Just don't know when. :)

Perhaps Mario vs. Cole McGrath?

Not a huge fan of Cole but I'll definitely consider it. :)

hmm... how about Mario Vs. Super Monday Night Combat or Serious Sam?

Great work anyway.

:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
I haven't played either of those games and that always makes it harder for me to do these characters in a fight. But I'll consider them for sure. :)
