Mario vs. Old Snake by SebastianvonBuchwald Mario vs. Old Snake by SebastianvonBuchwald
It's the Battle of the Moustaches!

The line art for this had been lying in my sketchbook for a while and now that I'm caught up with commissions I can finally finish it up.

The idea for this moustache face-off has been in my head for a while and it's a nice change of pace from the usual, full body fights. I had to throw logic out the window because Mario could never stand face to face with Snake but hey, I'm using the "artistic liberties" card here once again.

Maybe he's standing on a chair.

I know Sora was supposed to be next but I meant to have this done before that poll ended. The best laid plans... Bottom line, he's coming after this for sure.

this actually looks more comedic then action based XD

I'm totally OK with that. I personally don't take all of these as super serious stuff. I mean, the style is pretty cartoony to begin with. :)

Interesting, but I'm curious if you could release one to make it have Solid Snake (MGS2 era) fighting Mario?

That's exactly why I called this one "Old Snake" because I will do "Solid Snake" at some point. Don't know when though but, in the meantime, this should keep you happy: COMMISSION: Snake vs. Payne by SebastianvonBuchwald

Very well done! Not the most expected crossover, but that really adds to it. Also, you should totally do Superman vs. Goku. I think with your art skill you'd be able to pull off a fight with them.

Well, it was a commission so yeah, it was a bit of an odd choice by the person who requested it. As for Goku vs. Supes, I dunno. I feel it's been done to death. I did Dragonball vs. Chrono Trigger a while back (because they're both Toriyama) which I might revisit someday because I think it looks pretty crappy now. We'll see. :)

Though I completely agree it's been done to death, it would be cool since you've done so many gory fight scenes, that watching the most OP characters duke it out, as made by you no less, would be a true spectacle.

Yeah, I guess. I don't know. I'll definitely think about it. :)
