Mario vs. The Spy by SebastianvonBuchwald Mario vs. The Spy by SebastianvonBuchwald
BLOG - TUMBLR - TWITTER - COMMISSIONS

I had the idea for this clear in my head and the result is pretty close to that initial concept. A good ol' fistfight is not in the Spy's modus operandi so it had to be a backstab. I was tempted to have Mario looking back, as if knowing that something was off, but I decided to have the Spy be competent at his job. The Luigi disguise occured to me pretty early on and, try as I might, I could not find a decent hat that would work well with that idea (pretty sure the Spy has some of the worst hats in the game). I was close to giving him the Exorcizor as a misc. but that really changed the "mood" of the character so I just went with the Made Man and called it a day.

They're in the sewers of ctf_doublecross and, as usual, working on the background was very frustrating but, after toying around for a while, I arrived at something that I was satisfied, although not quite in love with.

Exactly man I hate it when I see other players using the spy wrong like running straight Into battle with his revolver blazin instead of being smart and sneaking around lol

Are you going to do the rest of the classes fot tf2? I can see the Scout running towards Mario with a scattergun and Mario about to uppercut that cocky Boston kid.

Yup, I plan on doing all TF2 classes. Might be a while until they're all done (I've done 3 in two years) but yeah, that's the plan. :)

*Mario gets backstabbed, but only loses fire power instead of dying. Turns and sees Spy*

Actually Marios Spine would be broken and he'd die.

Missing the joke. If Mario has a power-up equipped and he's attack, he doesn't die, but does lose the power-up. And since Mario knew he was backstabbed by 'Luigi', the Spy is exposed.

But alas that is only with Mario characters. A razor sharp knife would take his life and powerup away

Your not so smart are you? If Mario gets damaged by any enemy in any game he would only lose the fire power up. The only ways he would die if the spy hit I'm 3 times, but even then he has that invincibility for a few short seconds so he can get out of ther or thow in a few hits before coming open for attack. Same with the spy, if Mario jumped on him it would only deal some damage.

The funny thing is now when spies see you have the Razorback on, they'll just shoot you dead 9 times out of 10 with an Ambassador headshot or a couple shots from the default or Enforcer.

Damned if you do...damned if you don't. :iconfuckingmysteriousplz:

Yeah, Razorback is kinda useless at this point.

Damn shame. At least Jarate, another weapon from the same update still finds tired and true use. Jarate, the go to weapon to humiliating your enemies before brutally murdering them :iconjarateplz:

Well, next is Mario vs. Rayman (which is partially colored) then Kratos, Crono and Sub-Zero as per a poll I just ran. Dunno know when my next TF 2 character will be. :)
Also, I'm only doing Mario vs. non-Nintendo video game character for now so no Predator.

What about the engineer? It would be fun to see them fighting with their tools and getting their overalls ripped. But I think that's too much to ask.

By the way I enjoy your Mario vs. famous character, the artstyle reminds me of the Mario soccer game for the GCN.

I do love the art of those soccer games myself. And no worries, I'll get to all of the TF2 classes eventually. I love that game too much. :)

Y'know for me that game it's more violent than any other Mario game, if you move away the Super Smash franchise, but still pretty fun and stuff.

I actually never played it. I do wish the game matched its artwork a bit more.

The sewers, and why? That's exactly where Mario would adventure.
...and where I tend to defend...poorly....

You know, I didn't even make the sewers connection. But yeah, I'll totally say it was intentional now. :)
