Latest Updates:



Hate to resort to a character that is more of a "cameo" in a fighting game more than an actual fighter, but I just liked the idea of a really gritty Mario, so I got started this weekend:

Will add the hat of course, but just liked how much more menacing he looked without it!

Also, once the colors go in he should be more recognizable.

Looks like it will be a cool model - especially all his little tools on his belt.
I told this to some guy who is making an older, retired Andy Bogard - maybe just give him a red/blue beanie instead of a full fledged hat. People still know it's Mario with the colors, the mustache, and outfit. Just an idea, will be cool for sure either way!
