I previously had each of these bosses as their own deviation but have now joined them into one.
My favorite is either Air Man or Flash Man. My least favorite is Wood Man.
My favorite boss in Megaman history is Quick man, and he gave me the inspiration to do these.
I like the gears on Metal Man. I don't like the background of Crash Man.
Heat Man was hard because he is a fricken' lighter with arms and legs, but I think I got him down.
I liked these a lot when I finished them, although I probably would have colored them differently had I drawn them a little later.
All good fun though.
I was (and still am!) very humbled to be a part of the Mega Man Tribute book from Udon. Mega Man is by far my favorite NES Series. I remember getting Mega Man 2 for my birthday one year, and that was that Hope ya digs

NOTE: Mega Man 2's system of weaknesses was.... not nearly as straight forward. So Metal Man is half of the Robot Master's weaknesses (including himself.) It messed up the whole dynamic I did for the other group shots, but I managed to find someway to screw everyone over.
When Mega Man Zero was announced, I thought, "ANOTHER Mega Man series?! How many can one fanboy handle?" Don't get me wrong - I'm happy with the game itself. But I just had to take the piss out of Capcom for taking the saga to the nth level.
So I made a parody of the "Not Another Teen Movie" poster and labelled each character from the MM and MMX with the same nicknames used in the original poster. I would have liked to toss in key characters like Dr Light, Dr Wily and Sigma, but I ran out of nicknames by then and couldn't really find ones that would suit them well. Still, this picture generated quite a few larfs on the bulletin boards and won the "Pic of the Update" award at Mechadrake Assemblies. I suppose its success speaks for itself. ^_^
Last year I was commissioned to do the cover for Mega Man 9 by Capcom! It was really fun to do, especially the research part. I looked up a lot of BAAAAD 1980's VHS box cover art, as well as the original Mega Man 1 cover for inspiration. It was done all digitally (I had about two weeks to finish this) and I think it turned out pretty neat!
