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. :)
