Mario vs. The Pyro by SebastianvonBuchwald Mario vs. The Pyro by SebastianvonBuchwald
I'm really, really liking how this turned out.

I like it even better when I compare it to Mario vs. The Heavy. I still love that piece but it seems almost crude in comparison and the improvement is quite palpable.

But anyway, it's Mario and The Pyro from the amazing Team Fortress 2 (officially my most played game ever) fighting in cp_coldfront which, as far as stages go, seemed the most appropriate. Still going with the Fire Suit/RED vs. BLU motif here and I'll continue to use it for all TF2 characters (because I WILL get to all of them eventually). I'm not to crazy about how I keep repeating the "Mario in foreground, other character in background" layout but I'm definitely starting to think more about composition instead of just putting two floating characters in a void.

Now it's time to catch-up on some commissions...

I think it was supposed to be more interesting if you had put Mario with the Ice Flower. Ice against fire would be cool. Pyro may had the advantage of having a flamethrower but Mario was supposed to have UNLIMITED ice power. Plus they are fighting in the ice, i think this would count as another vantage for Mario.

Mario lost. Pyro is using the Axtinguisher.

Done deal. Pyro should be wearing the Tyrannus, though. Best hat.
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
It's a good hat but I feel it's too sci-fi and I've always had a thing for the fireman one. Still, believe it or not, picking the right hat was one of the harder choices in this piece. :)

Any hat works on Pyro. Pyro has the most adorable hats. I like the Bubble Pipe the most, though.
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Agreed. Pyro hats are the best hats. :)

Its because mario is red... Isn't it? xD
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Yup. With both the Heavy and Pyro I've gone with a RED vs. BLU motif. That's why I used Fire Mario as well, because there isn't any blue in his outfit. ;)
It'll be the same for all future TF2 characters. :)

you're assuming it's a guy, the Pyro's gender is still up for debate

I've seen Meet the Pyro at least a 100 times now. I wouldn't call him a "fag" because of it. More like a hallucinating, psychopath killing machine. :)

Oh yeah! Maybe Mario was pissed at the pyro because the pyro stole Mario's shrooms!

Nice! The lighting and fire are great in this piece! Looks dental coverage isn't included in the "Savior of the Mushroom Kingdom" benefits package.
The floating characters thing seems to be kind of a default for a lot of us, and it's good when you can make the effort to get away from it.
Keep up the good work!

You're welcome! My friend and I are also fans of drawing weird teeth
on our characters thanks to artists like Jamie Hewlett.

Oh, I love Hewlett. Probably one of the main reasons why I love Gorillaz. Don't know if that's where the teeth thing comes from though. It's most likely from a number of different places. :)

I thought Pyro was looking green at first. But then I realized it's because of the light from the flames.

Yes, reflected light is funny like that. :)

if i were to beat mario as pyro i will use the degreaser and then whack him with the postal plummeler for instant kill and if he dodges that sexy combo i will pull out my reserve shooter and kill him then taunt him with my vintage (not so vintage) merryweather with sight for sore eyes
