Do You Still BRAWL ? by Hugo-H2P Do You Still BRAWL ? by Hugo-H2P
Frickin F#ckin Hell Yeah!

Took me about 100 hours (2h+ for each of the characters), span through a week, and over 670 layers (yeah, I'm a Layer Freak, deal with it) to get this done T_T
Check out the WIP shots gif: [link]

But I'm reeeeeeeeeally pleased, actually flabbergasted (he, I love this word) with the result!
I tried to put as many details as possible. Actually, scratch that. I've put every detail of the characters in their SSBB looks.

It was a quite great experience. I've dealt with lots of different materials (from DK's fur and Power Suit's metal, to Wolf glove's rubber and Bowser's shell and spikes). Learned a lot with this piece.

I also used many special effects here and there that weren't at the actual sketch. Yeah, I like to show off.

And last but not least, can someone tell Toon Link that Falco is not a Cucco?...

EDITS: Fixed pikachu's head and overall proportions. Increased his eyes a bit.
Fixed the line on the sky that was right above squirtle's head.
Changed a bit Peach's expression and did the same to samusl, as was suggested by some critiquers

Update 2:
Okay, this one was bigger than the last. Edited the positioning of all the guys on the top, which means I had to re-color Ganondorf, since I flipped him.
Edited Charizard's jaw, Squirtle's eyes, and the pokemons (including Jigglypuff) and ROB's proportion (according to the rest of the characters on the back).
Also changed Pikachu's head a bit more (Thanks God for making the liquify function) and it finally pleases me.
AND... There he is! Ness is finaly facing forward!
Hope ya all like the changes

This art is of professional quality. It is very highly detailed, very good shading on the characters, the sky is very well done. What I like about this is how when you drew the characters you did a great job of capturing their personality in the way you drew them, by either facial expression or their stance. It's really creative how you drew them in this collage-like manner where they all look like they're just in one group, they're not just standing out in a generic fashion-which is very not fun to look at. But this however is like a game, you look at it like, "Where is Pikachu? Oh! There he is!" What also is very good about this is how you did draw them in your own style, but it's not done so original to the point to where the character's do not look like themselves. Some people make the characters look too much like their own, which isn't always a bad thing, but not always a good thing either. I'd love to see this on a poster-also would be a great idea for the cover of the next Brawl game. Overall I'd have to say this piece is very very good. Border-line perfect. You and the artist who helped with the base should be very proud of this piece!
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
28 out of 28 deviants thought this was fair.

The art give an impact when i see at first time, all the caracters are so well done from link with lots of detail to even jigglypuff or kirby. The sky ir really well done amaze me, all the facial expresions make look the caracters as their own personalities and the technique is cool.
The shades, bright and shadow sare so much well done. You can see this picture more than ten times or lots of dats and you can still see a "new" detail that you maybe didnt see and keep watching another day.

My favorites parts are with captain falcon serioes face, his hat and detail in the falcon,
That King Dedede amaze so much truly his hat, gloves absolutely everithing make me love it

Seriously a sublime work from an artist

I never realized how much characters were in SSBB. At first, I thought you put in assist trophies. Then I realized.
swrutra Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Hobbyist

Acho que a primeira palavra que disse diz tudo.

É uma força de vontade inédita, nunca vi nada assim…

Simplesmente adoro tudo nesta imagem, posso estar horas a olhar para este e para aquele detalhe.

Todas as personagens têm as expressões apropriadas que capturam o espírito de combate de todas elas.

Adoro as atitudes do Falco e do Wolf. Suponho que eles estejam cansados da luta, certo?

A Samus está bastante sensual naquela pose a abraçar-se a si própria, eheheh…

O Mario é que nunca se cansa, pelos vistos…

Agora, se me permite apontar um "defeito"… tenho pena de o Captain Falcon estar cortado.

É pena, ao ver tanto trabalho e tanto detalhe em tudo, sinto que uma das minhas personagens preferidas devia ter sido um pouco mais deslocada para a esquerda… o Captain Falcon é uma das grandes personagens, tanto no SSBB como na sua série original de corridas futuristas F-Zero.

Mas é só esse pequeno pormenor, de resto, adoro!
