Weber SG Mural by FabianMonk Weber SG Mural by FabianMonk
This was awesome to do. So before embarking on our epic cross-USA trip together, gentleman extraordinaire Tom Jilesen :iconred-monkey: asked me if I wanted to collaborate with him on a mural he was going to paint into the new space the studio he works at just moved into.
Tom's boss, Roel, gave us a lot of freedom with this, which just made the whole thing that much more fun to work on. Basically he wanted an assembly of any and all video game, comic, and movie characters the he liked or that we liked, or both.
So first Tom and I sketched up a digital file, in which we would just draw characters and assemble them, sending the file back and forth, working simultaenously and going over each others lines, just pushing it back and forth until we were happy with it (if you're familiar with our individual art styles, at least Tom's, you might be able to pick out who drew which character though). Then we projected the digital image onto the wall in sections and traced the lines onto the wall with acrylic paint. The projector couldn't cover the entire wall, it measures roughly 2,7 x 4,6 meters. It took a while to complete and required me to make two trips over to Holland, where the studio is located.
Check out the Weber games studio at [link] . Also, there are some work in progress shots on Roel's blog, [link] .

So yeah, oviously we needed fake moustaches to compliment the mural when posing next to it (and that uninentionally turned us into some whack as hell version of the Mario Brothers...).

Hope you enjoy!

Well that was Tom :iconred-monkey: 's boss, Roel. He owns the studio and they had just recently moved to a new studio space, which he wanted decorated. One of the ideas was the mural. Tom hit me up about it and it was simply too great to pass up.

Thanks for responding. I researched about murals and projectors are a easier way to get the mural painted. But how were you commissioned to do the artwork?

We had never done anything like it before either.
So we drew the image digitally and then used a projector. We traced the projection with brushes and (diluted) black acrylic paint. It was actually pretty easy, despite having to position your body in pretty awkward angles at times.

Thanks for the info. I recently got into digital painting and coloring and have been looking for something cool to work on. Would you mind if I gave this a go and posted my finished results on my account, with links back to you obviously?

The little guy that Bison is crushing is Captain August, the kid up front with the running nose and the toilet paper roll is White from Tekkon Kinkreet, the kid with the high collar behind him is one of my own characters, the little robot holding Totoro's claw is Satellite Soda's Funky Love Bot and the robot in the far background is Giant Robo.
The one's you mentioned were all correct! And yeah, those are the Mario stars! :beer:

Im really wondering who some of these characters are. Could you post something showing who is who? I see M. Bison, Luffy, Chopper, Totoro, Ichigo, Naruto, Alphonse Elric, Felicia, Morrigan(I think), Samus without her suit on, but i dont know who the remaining like 5 characters are. Also are those stars supposed to be the stars from Mario?
