I was wondering around searching the word "guy" and stumbled across this. I have to say I am very impressed. Not only is the Shy Guy a very adorable and well known character but his simplicity is what attracts people to him. You captured this as well as gave him some gothic flair that makes him stand out. It's too bad Nintendo industries couldn't use this, form, and go with a game or story that uses this sort of style. I could really see Mario and the others gothed out a bit at one of Boo's castles.
I think its the ET finger mixed with the mask that gives him the...cute...feel. Though my thoughts never went there. I thought he was creepy and would scare Mario enough that he would say "screw chasing after Peach for the billionth time...I'm gonna find a new chick." Cause yeah I don't think he would go up against that guy there LOL Good job I really love this pic.
As brick-shittingly terrifying as this Guy obviously is attempting to be, I (as a fellow Shy Guy) have a hard time taking his level of creepiness seriously. Though, admittedly, this is a pretty cool re-design otherwise.
