Mario vs. Slender Man by SebastianvonBuchwald Mario vs. Slender Man by SebastianvonBuchwald
BLOG - TUMBLR - TWITTER - COMMISSIONS

So I was gonna do Mario vs. Jack Cayman (from Mad World) before I worked on Mario vs. Crono. I was gonna do it digitally but the crappy composition I had and the crappy line art that I started forced me to pause and rethink. I scrapped what I had done, chose to work on it with pencil and ink (as I usually do), but I was exhausted with it so I decided to shelve it for a later time.

Around that time, a commenter suggested Slender Man. I was vaguely familiar with the character and, coincidentally, Giant Bomb was doing a Quick Look (which I watch pretty consistently) that day about Slender: The Arrival. Soon after I started watching it, I was sold on Mario vs. Slender Man and quickly came up with a composition to work with. These fights are usually very colorful so I wanted to have a lot of black this time, just as the game does. Once I started getting into it, I became worried that I had a layout that was too similar to Mario vs. The Spy (and Mario vs. The Pyro as well but less so). I tried to change the angle a bit and the mood is obviously different but I still think it's perhaps too close for comfort to those pieces.

I have a couple of unwritten rules for these fights: 1) no Nintendo characters (which I'm actually breaking soon enough) and 2) original video games character only. Slender Man originated as a meme so I guess I've broken rule number 2 here. I'm OK with that I guess, just don't expect to do it again anytime soon.
