I absolutely LOVED doing this peice. Every now and again I seem to go through little obcessive phases. Though I must admit that Mega Man has been my favorite character for as long as I can remember. I did this peice for the release of Mega Man Powered Up. (Rokkuman Rokkuman in Japan) The background was added to the pic today really quickly as it did not originally have one. I have even sketched out many of the other robots to turn into vector. I may do them...eventually.... :/ Alot of people were really turned off by the cutesy style for Mega, but I loved it. Keiji Inafune is a genius. Don't worry, I'm sure there will be many more of Mega to come....but don't expect X characters, cause the Original will always be the best!

About my pic, it's nothing too fancy (especially compared to many other pieces in the book), I wanted to keep it simple as I'm not that familiar with the Mega Man universe. I grew up a PC gamer, secretly envying my Mario, Sonic and Mega Man playing friends, while claiming Commander Keen was the greatest platform hero of ALL time. However, I had a great time drawing these characters.
has allowed us to post our entries. At first I didn't think I'd have time to get a piece done but at the last minute decided that Mega Man was way too big of an influence on me not to. So I stayed up all night and gave it a try.
The Mega Man X series was when I really got into MM and I went back to play the other games. I always liked the idea of their little family, but still wanted to include the roots of my MM love.
I'm so thrilled to be part of this tribute and amongst all this talent and love for Mega Man!
