I create this scene just thinking on who will win on a battle between those pair of "evil titans" ;P

What do you think? could EggPawns beat KoopaTroopas?

 koopas are probably the most badass characters in mario world, I wish we could have a rpg game with a parakoopa as the hero, that would rock!!!

haniebal (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/20/2010 12:03

if it was only bowser vs. eggman bowser would pown him XD


pixelator11 (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/10/2009 14:28

bowser would win

floay (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/28/2009 14:51

 I like it.

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 8/17/2007 08:07
Itll be a tie since I like the both enemies... but in my opinion Sonic beats Mario... but im not here to start an argument ;)

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 7/21/2007 12:49
ooh, dramatic O_O

rabidbaboy (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 7/18/2007 07:48
You didn't just copy-paste the little guys either!O:

JulioAT (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/23/2007 13:06
Que batalla titanica, digna de los noventas con esas peleas entre quien era la mejor empresa Nintendo o Sega, lastima que ya se sabe quien gano ese duelo, tu sprite casi me da la idea para un juego y todo :)

Gomess (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/21/2007 19:02
Oh wow. Big win.

Vidd (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/21/2007 14:54
Bowser would win, no question. ;)
Amazing piece but Bowser's nose looks a little weird, as if the rest of his face is at a different angle.

DelphinusMach1 (Level 1 Intern) @ 6/21/2007 09:35
Bowser's shell looks a little weird to me, but otherwise, great!

sausage (Level 5 Sniper) @ 6/20/2007 23:05


Great idea, Great Pixel.

HiyuKantaro (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/20/2007 08:51
This is awesome!
Really like the idea, and you did it nicely!

Inferno.Fighter.IV (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/20/2007 06:15
Xion Night: A dragon? Nah... Maybe more like a turtle on steroids.  EDIT: Make that a retarded turtle on steroids.

Xion Night (Level 1 Thug) @ 6/19/2007 21:12
I think a fair bit of AA would help this immensely. Also, a bit hard to distinguish the nearest troops from one another.
The robots would beat the koopas, but once it gets down to the Big Bosses, Robotnik's got no chance.
Bowser's a f***ing dragon-in-a-shell...!

Inferno.Fighter.IV (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/19/2007 11:52
I love the idea! But it looks a lot like Bowser and Dr. Robotnik were just copied and pasted over this.  Maybe AA would help.  5/5
Ps. Robotnik would kick Bowser's ass!

InvaderLupus (Level 1 Intern) @ 6/18/2007 23:01
This picture is great. I love the concept, and the technique is excellent.

btw, Robotnik's pawns would definitely win. Sonic > Mario (except now; Mario's definitely done a better job of standing the test of time).

fatlittlenick (Level 1 Private) @ 6/18/2007 03:32
I can see that becoming an RTS type of game in the future.
Bloody brilliant i may add!

El Sato (Level 1 Private) @ 6/18/2007 01:27
looks cool and everything... but somehow i dont like something... i dont know... is in the spriting, some borders or something... o __O
but blah in general looks great, and of course eggman kick bowser´s ass

CircleOfTheDarkOnes (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/18/2007 00:32
Verry good!      

Shawn (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 6/17/2007 15:56
Holy $#@^! I go away for one day and I come back and you guys are pulling out amazing stuff like this?! It's GORGEOUS! :DDDDD

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 6/17/2007 10:58
I liek the selout cuz it gives it some sort of actual videogamey feel, if that makes sense. AA would make it boring.

Dr. Morph (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/17/2007 08:50
Looks like you kinda overdid the purple thingy, but great job nontheless.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 6/16/2007 03:30
Great idea. I'm betting on EggPawns for the win

BadMrBox (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 6/15/2007 17:39

Great pixeling.

Go, go Bowser!

Heartless (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/15/2007 14:16
muy cool ork! n_n hacia tiempo que no veia nada tuyo

macula (Level 6 Hitman) @ 6/15/2007 08:12
Wow great job on everything.

eckered (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 6/15/2007 03:56
that selout on his hand is killing me>.>  anyway, good stuffs =)  saves*

elend (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 6/15/2007 01:41
Absolutely fantastic!!

soda (Level 10 President) @ 6/14/2007 21:40
Awesome idea.  5/5

Terley (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 6/14/2007 20:34

I could see this in a game.

Blicks comments are valid, but I think it works well.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/14/2007 19:35
Immediately zoomed in and really admiring pixels here and there before looking at 1X. As a huge fan of your work I really find this beautiful and fantastic...Blick's comment however is a very keen analytical observation that is in fact true. Not that it takes away from really liking it tho.

Blick (Level 7 Captain) @ 6/14/2007 18:56
The selective outlining is too harsh and just draws attention to most of the edges rather than smoothing them and the ambient light is too noticeable and confuses more than it helps. I'd also say it's too opaque.

ZeroFive1 (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 6/14/2007 18:47

Oh my god.


Josiah (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 6/14/2007 18:47

 The ambience doesn't look like it belongs with the image, it seems a bit distracting, but I do however like it on the Big Bad Bosses. Also Bowser's nose seems slightly out of perspective, mostly because the side that's supposed to be facing away from us, seems to actually be facing us, I would think that it would look better if you at least showed less of the left side (from Bowser's perspective). Most of the koopas furthur back in the crowd look pretty blocky, you should round up and smooth them out. Eggman's Bots look fine to me. I think the coulds are great, good colors too I like the atmosphere. Great job on the whole thing though, hope my critique helped ;)


HMC (Level 7 General Manager) @ 6/14/2007 17:00
Whoa, when I looked at this it took me a minute before I realized that the picture wasn't a reference to this scene. Lord Crump is weirdly similar to Robotnik.

Sweet picture, btw. The purple light is kinda wonky, though. The areas around it look too dark, and it seems especially weird when you consider it doesn't seem to be coming from anywhere.

DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/14/2007 16:46
He never said they were robots... =.

This is sexy. I love the purple ambience under Robotnik's hand. You managed to use good angles, positioning, and size to create a heated scene full of intensity.

Bowser ftw. ;)

skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 6/14/2007 16:45
Pure awesome.        

Amorphous (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 6/14/2007 16:12

Koopas aren't robots.

Other than that, this is a VERY nice piece.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/14/2007 16:04
Very nice.
Maybe you could change the facial expressions or at least the eyes of some of the yoshi turtles.
Also it would really KICK ASS with some AA.
