Mario vs. Marcus Fenix by SebastianvonBuchwald Mario vs. Marcus Fenix by SebastianvonBuchwald
Right of the bat, I knew I wanted three things from this piece: cover, grit and brown.

I thought about having Mario in cover first, but then the image of Marcus charging at him with a Lancer didn't seem to me like it would to lend itself to a fair-looking fight. So I once again took a page from my Mario vs. Master Chief piece and thought, well, what do the Locust have that Mario could wield? I went to the wikis again and the answer was bright as day: a Bloodmount. This image formed rather easily in my head after that.

The "palette" and "grit" parts were just a matter of trial and error thankfully. I used a lot of layers, adjustment layers, grain and a few new brushes (many thanks to FrostBo for this [link] set of brushes) and achieved some pretty solid results on both ends.

I do wish I'd paid more attention to the lineart. I knew the orientation of the wall and Marcus' position relative to it but his right hand isn't touching it in any realistic manner.

And sorry but no progress animation this time. Just way too many layers to wade through.

Pyramid Head está en mi lista. Cuando me decida a hacer un personaje de Silent Hill seguro será el aunque no se cuando será eso.

Wow.... :giggle: So seeing all this makes me wonder--- Mario vs. Duke Nukem? Mario vs. Shao Kahn? Mario vs. Devil Jin from Tekken? xD There's so many of these!

Thanks! Glad you like these and thanks again for the faves and the watch. I'll definitely get to Duke Nukem at some point and, for now, the only MK character I'll be doing is Sub-Zero who is 2-3 fights away. And sorry, but I'm just not a big fan of Tekken. :( Still, never say never. ;)

No problem, man. :D I definitely can't wait to see those. Sub-Zero would definitely be a fun one to see. ^^

And no worries. :giggle: I haven't been into Tekken much myself either. :nod: 'King of Fighters' by SNK was more my thing for awhile. :) But yeah, good luck man! I'll keep an eye out for the rest. :D

Man, I'm a huge SNK dork. I've thought about Mario vs. Terry or Iori but I always think I'd rather do solo pieces for those two. Again, we'll see. :)
