There Will Be Brawl - Luigi by JustinGreene There Will Be Brawl - Luigi by JustinGreene
#2 of the series

Luigi is the main character of Brawl [link] and is probably the most complex. So it was kinda hard to pin down how to best do this one.

Luigi is played by Matt Key and is (c) Nintendo
There Will Be Brawl is directed by Matthew Mercer

This is absolutely fantastic! I really like how you drew Luigi as he appears in the outstanding independent web-series "There Will Be Brawl" in a Nintendo-esque visual style as opposed to realistic.

For Luigi, you have drawn and coloured him in pretty close detail and you've captured his original visual style very well. I am also very impressed with how you put as much effort into the colouring, lighting and shading of the background to maintain its urban atmosphere. The background's perspective is very accurate as well.

I also love how you modified the official Super Smash Bros Brawl logo to create your own logo for "There Will Be Brawl," which I believe looks more detailed has more visual impact than the series' official logo.

However, I believe that the background could have been worked on a little bit more for more depth and visual interest. For example, you could have added more buildings to exaggerate the size of the city.

Nevertheless, I really like how you drew Luigi as he appears in There Will Be Brawl in his original Mario visual style. Great job!

It's a bit disturbing to see Brawl characters drawn in the traditional Nintendo style. The background does look a little spare - some mist effects would be useful for making it look 'deeper'?
JustinGreene Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Though this was the second one I did for the cast, I do feel this one came out the weakest, mostly because of the background. Angles all wrong, lighting, perspective. I'd like to revisit it someday.

I just would like to say thanks for linking of the "there will be brawl" series. I was up all night just watching them all... I got my computer taken away, slept at 4:30 in the morning.. but totally worth it.

Luigi looks like a inspector! The place he's at looks like moonview highway from Mario kart wii

Nice work!

I really liked this series. It was dark, but well written.

My favorite part of it though was the mystery of who the killer was.

this is amazing

Luigi is indeed the most complex character in There Will Be Brawl, and you portray that well on the character's face.
Love how you put the tower in the background :)

Not raggin' on the way you did it or anything, but for Mario I would've chosen the seen where he's beatin' the livin' shizz outta DK with that hammer. But the one you did is just as good. I like it. You should do one for Wario and Kirby. Kirby had an influential role in the series, albeit the lack of screen time.

ah yeah, i remember a year back i watched twbb. i think you really nailed luigi's character with this one.
for someone who's still working on bgs, you make them very well. the sense of perspective is fantastic.
i would suggest saving your pics in a different format, though. the format you currently save it in made it turn out rather pixelly.

Luigi is awesome, and There Will Be Brawl is proof of that.

The buildings seem a little too spaced apart at the horionzon, there are no smaller buildings, and the streets don't seem to make much sense, layout-wise. Good though, I like it.

That mini-seires was pretty BA too...
JustinGreene Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah, I wasn't as happy with the final product with this piece compared to the Mario. I knew the scene I wanted but lacked the experience and knowledge of proper city layout. Doing it live on Ustream did kinda put me on the spot too.
Fanatic-of-the-few Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2010
Can I suggest using a simple grid layout with mideum to high buildings? Those do well for inner city scenes.
JustinGreene Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
thanks, i'll look into it next time. I did mostly try to use a vanishing point system at first, but I think I stopped or switched them off once I finished the foreground scene. I probably would have been better served if I had started the scene in another pic and built from the back forward instead of the of the other way around.

Thanks for the input, true critiques are few and far between =P

You beat me too it, but I get the feeling that this alone is better than whatever I would have done.

Good point. I didn't want to post it on the same thread because I knew (or at least I'm paranoid enough to believe) that someone would call me a copycat or say that I was trying to ride on your success.

I always thought Kirby had the biggest role, he did a lot of things in SSE.
Abazigal Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2009
Not that Brawl, he means the web series "There Will Be Brawl".
