Mario vs. Zero by SebastianvonBuchwald Mario vs. Zero by SebastianvonBuchwald
How does Mario counter Zero? With the Beam Saber from Smash Bros, of course. I went for the tried and true Yin-Yang composition on the characters and my originally idea was to have a completely square canvas. Well, turned out that was an awful idea so I resized and repositioned and what you see is the end result.

If there was ever a time where I overdid it with the effects, I think this might be it. I like how the light from the sabers is being reflected on both of them but I think I may have gone too far with the rest of the stuff. I kept going back and forth with many of effects layers but, the majority of the times, I decided it looked better with them than without them.

Judge for yourself in the progress animation ([link]) and let me know if you think the penultimate step looks better than the last. I honestly donít think Iíll change it at this point but Iíd love to know if itís all in my head.

Aren't you only supposed to use weapons from your own games? And Zero can spam the Genmurei, which is impossible to dodge, and can one-hit KO basically anything
