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.BLOG - TWITTER - COMMISSIONS
