This was made back when MMX7 was announced (yay!) for the Playstation 2 (boo!). When a new MMX game is announced, I always wonder what new Mavericks will rear their ugly heads in this latest installment. I didn't expect much at the time, actually, since Capcom's Reploid designs have been pretty poor lately. So just to poke fun at them, I tossed together this short strip with some of the most absurd Mavericks I could think of.
This was actually my first attempt at using screentones in Photoshop. Since I didn't know about the Colour Halftone filter back then, I had to copy & paste differnt screentone scans I found on Google. It was a pretty harrowing experience, and I'm glad I don't have to go through that again. I mean, just look at the horrible lack of contrast! Pity me, people. -_-
After more than a month, it's finally released. This is a fan-made movie based off the classic Mega Man series. Don't expect too much "action" in this movie, expect to see a few bad jokes, tough. Despite its somewhat sketchy look and sometimes repetitive special effects, this was a severe pain to put together.
This movie stars Mega Man, Bass, and Tengu Man. But exactly who is the star of this movie anyway? The focus is kind of shaky... Oh! And Rush and Treble are in this movie too!
This is based on a very old doodle I made up, and at least one of the jokes was taken directly from the doodle. To this day, my favorite Mega Man characters are Tengu Man, Bass, and Treble (hence their ever-important roles in this movie). I sorta like Rush too, but certainly not as much as Treble.
That is my voice in the movie, playing the three main parts and one or two others. Mega Man is the closest to my natural speaking voice. Tengu Man has more of my singing voice, and Bass...well, he sounds like he's impersonating "Seto Kaiba." I had to make the voices distinctively different, just to differentiate one character from another. I know they don't sound anything like they do in Mega Man 8...but hey, is that a bad thing? :3
Oh, and I decided to add an easter egg (or...) to this movie, just in case the main feature just isn't enough. It pays to have random thoughts going through your head as you brainstorm...the most unusual things can come up!
I recommend you play this movie on MEDIUM quality. It may not look as nice as high quality, but the animation won't get as choppy.
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.
Since people here have been clamouring that I make another MM movie parody, I finally succumbed to the pleas and churned out this little number. Yes, it's more taking-the-piss out of those crazy Guns 'n Roses names. Sorry about the rubbish colouring. I wanted to try something a little different this time, but I don't think the effect came out that well. At least it raised a mild chuckle, eh? Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to see if I can get Mattrex a part in Jurassic Park 4.....
