So I've had this idea bouncing around in my little deranged head for awhile, but I lack a capture card to make the dream come true, but my dream is to have various famous type people play video games.
Maybe, George Takei, Arnold Schwarzenegger, George Bush, Golum, Orson Welles, and so on.
Prehaps you're wondering how I would get them, more so the dead or not quite real ones. Well... I have my ways. 
As a proof of concept here's Orson Welles Playing "No, Luca No" recorded on my crappy phone camera.

Sadly his voice wasn't quite as low and soothing as it normally is, but you get the idea.
So there's my idea, and my entry.

Hopefully I didn't embarrass myself for nothin!

Well, PAX is coming up shortly. I'll be lucky enough to be one of the people going. Before I leave Thursday, I'd figure I'd throw up a quick art blog(sorry they aren't colored, but like I said, quick art blog).

This time I'm focusing on Left 4 Dead. I'm doing an idea which I know has been done by other people. I've only seen it done once personally, and it was far different than the ideas in my head, so I figured I'd go for it. So here's my Mario L4D cross over.

Well this is painfully obvious... I thought about doing something different then Yoshi as the Smoker, but I'm lazy and unoriginal.

I almost forgot about the Charger(A crime I know), so this one is kinda rushed, but all in all it ain't bad.

The first one I drew was Mario as the Jockey and kind of got me going on the whole idea.

Nothing shocking here.

Nothing too shocking here either.

I could have made a large character the tank, but I like the idea of Toad as him instead.

I can't think of anything to say about this disgusting pile of gross.

Who else were you expecting as the Spitter? Daisy? Pshaw.

So there's my Left 4 Dead Mario cross over. I'm sure it's been done elsewhere and in better ways, but like I said. I've only seen one, and it was vastly different.

So feel free to say hello to me at PAX, I realize you don't know who the hell I am or what I look like. So this is me:

Something like this at least...

So if you're going to PAX get your requests for any drawings you want now.

I don't like asking for money for my art, but I'm gonna need to eat and drink at PAX. So prices for art will be between 5 to 10 bucks. I'm a cheap artist. I'll also have whatever I haven't sold of my original art with me. So check out my backlog of art and if you want one and I still own it, you may be able to get it from me!

See you all at PAX!

Last year at PAX I met Destructoid artist Mikey. Being we're both quiet reclusive artist types, we spent most of the time together. About halfway through the weekend I decided I wanted to draw something with Mikey.
(Also, if you're not aware of my past art, you might want to go back and view them, so you have an idea of what kind of stuff I draw)

My plan was simple really, have him draw a reaction shot. Something reacting to an image I hadn't drawn yet. Knowing what my art is like(i.e. Horrifying), Mikey was kind enough to draw something for me in my sketch book. I didn't have time to finish it at PAX, so I took it home and finished it there.

Where it sat for almost a year.

I figured with PAX coming up again, and the reunion of Mikey and I, now would be as good of a time as any to present Dtoid with the final product.

Take a deep breath. I don't know if you're prepared....

As you can no doubt guess, Mikey drew the nice wholesome Mario drawing, and I drew... The horrible mess on the right side of the image.

So almost a year later, was it worth the wait? I'll let you be the judge.
I have bigger and better plans this year for Mikey and I, but I promise that if anything comes of it, I'll be sure and post it faster.

Thanks for looking.

Alrighty, I managed to bang some more art out. Lets see what my head pooped out shall we? I've got some class, and some....... Not... Class... At all.

Mario as Clark Gable. Why? I donno. I think it has something to do with the ears.

Yojimbo isn't just a Dtoid user, it's also one of the the greatest movies of all time. If you haven't seen it. Seriously. Get on it, it's on netflix instant.

Das Inchworm wondered if I could do any character as Emmett Kelly. Yes. Yes I can.

Funktasic is in need of a Domo. So hell, this is for him. Even though I've never drawn him before.

While playing Super Mario World, I noticed it seems like Mario is shooting the fireballs out his nose when I watch the animation. Snot fireballs.

Also it looks like he's smacking Yoshi on the head when you want him to stick out his tongue.

The Mushroom Kingdom ER is a sad and busy place.

Edit:Oh, I also drew this for Podtoid, if you didn't see it in the forums, because really, we have formus?

I donno. Sometimes my pencil makes strange things.

WOOO! Hell yeah! DRUNK!

Well there's my latest batch. I think I hit classy and not classy nicely. Polar opposites really. Hope you enjoyed. See you all next time. Thanks for looking!

Oh, and the girl is starting up an Etsy for me, so at some point I'll be selling prints and stuff on it. When that happens, I'll let you all know.

Till next time!

Alright folks. I managed to get some more art out of my head. Keeping with my last blogs theme there's a lot of 30s and 40s movie stars as Mario characters. But I know that that's not everyone's cup of tea, so I've tossed some other stuff into here for those peoples.

So here we go!

After doing Mario as Groucho Marx in my last blog I figured I'd finish up the brothers... Except for Zeppo and Gummo... So here's Luigi as Chico Marx.

And Yoshi as Harpo Marx

Here we have Wario as Alfred Hitchcock.

Mario is just singing in the rain.

Waluigi as Nosferatu.

Three Stooges, I kinda like how this one turned out.

So much for the classy stuff. Here's a bit of trashy.

Mushrooms have a less talked about secondary function.

You know, I'm pretty sure Glass Joe leads a very sad life. Poor guy.

There's the new batch of drawings for you all. Sorry it wasn't as filthy as normal, but we'll see what next time brings.

Thanks for looking!
See you all next time.

Well, it seems as though I've been able to draw a bit recently, and of course, I want to share them with my Destructoid family. There's a lot here, and if you're an old movie snob, you'll hopefully enjoy a good deal of them. And hopefully I'll be coloring a good chunk of these soon. Here we go!

I had the idea of making a Mario style Laural and Hardy drawing a couple weeks ago, so kept bouncing around in my head, so I had to vomit it onto paper.

Which got me rolling on doing other old movie stars in Mario style. Such as Luigi as Charlie Chaplin.

Or Wario as W.C. Fields. (I won't hold it against you if you don't know who he is)

Luigi as Harold Lloyd.(You may not know who he is, but you should at least know this scene)

Or Mario as Groucho Marx. (Strictly coloring in black and white is tougher then I thought it'd be!)

If you're one of the younger folk around here. Don't worry, I have non old fart stuff for you too.

Dawwww, Luigi pre eating a mushroom... Why is his head so disproportionate to his body?

I figured out, Goombas are kinda mushrooms also. So why couldn't a Toad mate with one and turn out one of these scary ass things?

Dig Dug is such a Violent game.

Of course so is Mario.

And sexy. Mario is sexy.

I figured with all the black and white movies I drew characters from. I should at least have one everyone can get behind. Hopefully Mikey will approve.

Om nom nom nom!

So hopefully that'll tide some of you over till I can draw some more. I have some more stuff in the pipeline. We'll see what happens.

Thanks for looking, See you all next time!
