Mario vs. Raz by SebastianvonBuchwald Mario vs. Raz by SebastianvonBuchwald
I really like how this turned out.

I'll be honest, I played Psychonauts a few years back and my memory of it is a bit fuzzy. I do remember that each level was completely unique so I had difficulty in deciding what to use as a background. I ultimately went with the swirly thing because that's one of the more recognizable visuals in the game. Thing is, I know it doesn't make sense in context of what's happening in the image (the swirly thing wouldn't show if Raz is still outside the person's mind) but hey, sometimes you gotta bend the rules.

Also, I did one super lazy thing in this drawing and street cred goes to whoever finds it. Hint: You might have to look at some of the other Mario Versus pieces to find it.

And be sure to vote in the Mario Versus poll in my profile. It'll run until Monday and whoever wins will face Mario next.

This could work if Mario was a figment of Luigi's nightmares. I've never played Psychonauts, but I want to one night.

Psychonauts is very creative and well worth a look though, as you may have heard, it doesn't control very well for a platformer.

Ha ha, I love how you always draw Mario with his hat flying off, and revealing his hair, it looks quite intense.

I'm going to guess Raz entered the mind of the president of SEGA circa 1990's.

Is the hidden thing the "M" on his hat isn't there? :?

SebastianvonBuchwald Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2011
No, but close. It's actually that I copy-pasted the whole hat from Mario vs. The Heavy.

So lazy, I know.

Oh man, Raz is really intent on finding out what's in the mind of Mario... BY FORCE! :XD: What a cool match this is! It makes me wonder who's gonna be next to face the poor plumber. ^^;

SebastianvonBuchwald Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011
Well, I had a poll running to decide just that and it's gonna go like this: Earthworm Jim, Angry Birds, Master Chief and then Faith from Mirror's Edge in that order. The first 3 are already penciled and inked. :)

Nice job :D Can't find the lazy thing though :D I think Raz looks a little like Sackboy, did you reuse something from your old drawings? :)

Yes, actually. I won't beat around the bush, it was the hat. I reused it from Mario vs. The Heavy. I know, I know...

Aaah, thats not THAT lazy :XD: Also, never seen the heavy one before, but its awsome! :la: By the way, I was wondering do you take suggestions for mario VS ? :)
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
SebastianvonBuchwald Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011
Sure, I'll take your suggestions but no promises as to when or if you'll ever see them realized. I'll be honest though, I must've thought about pretty much every video game character at this point.

BANGDK Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmm, alright. Maybe Mario VS Kirby? Captian Viridian? :) the HeadCrab? That was just some of the first names that popped up in my head, that I think would be cool, so you could consider some of them :D Oh! And one that I think would be freaking awsome: MARIO VS SPYRO!!! (that would be coool)
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
SebastianvonBuchwald Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011
Well, I don't want to use Nintendo characters other than Mario for a while because we've seen most of them fight in Smash Bros. already. Viridian and the headcrab have popped in my head on occasion but I haven't really come up with a good idea on how to do them. That's the main thing really, more than figuring out what character to use, it's figuring out what the drawing is going to be like that will make me go ahead with a character or not. Haven't tought about Spyro but I don't know a thing about the character and that makes him harder to use.

BANGDK Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I understand that, I gotta admit I actually got the kirby idea thinking of Smash Bros. :XD: Well, with the headcrap you could do something like it was stuck on top of marios head, and he trying to get it off or something :D Captain viridian could be like upsite-down turning up in the air just in time, where Mario si trying to hit him, but his to high or something. Well, you know spyro is just a dragon, with fire etc ;P

Now that's a newcomer i'd like to see in the next smash bros...though people would probably whine about him being too similar to Ness/Lucas.

Not without Mega Man first. I would've bought five copies of Brawl if Mega Man had been in it instead of the zero that I got.

Hey where's the "M" on Mario's hat? is that the super lazy thing??

Also once again you did an awesome job on this picture. love how Raz is coming out of Mario's mind...trippy dude...
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
SebastianvonBuchwald Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2011
Nope. It's the angle of the hat that doesn't let you see the "M."

It's much, much lazier than that and it actually is related to the hat. ;)
