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...

For once, Mario is not losing his cap =)
That's not a good occasion to use fireballs...

The Pyro's fire immunity certainly helps him in this fight. :)

Holy balls, this one goes to the "beyond awesome" part of my brain! Seriously needs a DD.

Thanks! It's one of my older Mario fights but still one of my faves. My Mario vs. Luigi got a DD recently though. ;)

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.

I don't even get why.
A Pyro that can't airblast isn't all that threatening. Just shoot it and it'll die before it's pitful flamethrower can reach you. :D

not so much anymore after the axtinguisher nerf, now i use the back burner, the detonator and the powerjack. detonator and powerjack for mobility to get behind the opponents, them burn them to crisp.

Thanks for the watch also. :)

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.

: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!
