Mario vs. CATS

November 28, 2018

I’ve been dying to do this one for months. CATS (from Zero Wing) might have only had a grand total of 3 sprites ever but he will forever live in all of us dammit!

Mario vs. Donkey Kong

October 30, 2018

75th fight in the bank! Crazy to think that I’ve done so many. It’s been super fun and, no worries, I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Have a lot of interesting ones planned out and I might loosen some of my personal rules when it comes to these....

Mario vs. Gum

June 25, 2018

I’ve been working on the layout for this one as early as last year. I’ve done at least 5 other fights since I first started working on this. It’s been tough. The poses weren’t there for starters so I kept putting it on the backburner. Needless to say, I’m...

Mario vs. Gungrave

April 25, 2018

So this is extremely busy but it’s kinda what I was going for. That’s why I skipped the background (which is always a blessing for me). It’s funny, soon after I started thinking about this, they announced Gungrave VR which, presumably, will lead to some more Gungrave stuff. We’ll...

Mario vs. Hollow Knight

February 3, 2018

I loooved Hollow Knight and I’ve been wanting to do this piece since I played it last year. Thought about setting it in the dreamscape (or whatever it’s called) because it looks so cool or in the Colosseum because I thought it’d be cool to have Mario fight HK...

Mario vs. Toro and Kuro

November 22, 2017

Who remembers the PS2 boot screen? I used the Street Fighter X Tekken look of these two because it seemed fitting for a fight. It’s funny, I’ve definitely cut down on the violence aspect of these pieces so I kinda want to get back to that in the future....

Mario vs. Millia Rage

September 28, 2017

I don’t really know how long Millia’s hair can get (her Instant Kill in GGX implies a lot) but going crazy with it seemed like a good idea to hang this fight on. This one went about as smoothly as smooth gets. Just had to put the time in...

Mario vs. Dr. Wily

September 2, 2017

Here’s to those that say I don’t do a lot of villains in these! This was fun and not just because it was done on stream. Next up? Leaning towards Millia Rage but, again, I’m fickle so we’ll see. Below are the YouTube clips of the coloring process:

Mario vs. Xenogears

May 6, 2017

I sometimes get flack from people saying “you know, there’s no way Mario would win this.” Well, this one is certainly not gonna win me any favors with those people. I’ve been super excited about doing this one ever since the idea for it first popped in my head....

Mario vs. Hyper Light Drifter

April 13, 2017

I put this one in the backburner for a bit after I finished HLD (god, what a beautiful game) but I figured it was time to finally get to it. I streamed the entire coloring process once again on Twitch. It’s all archived so go there and take a...
