I felt like drawing X in the Icarus Armor. Since there are almost no pictures of the armors from X8 around. I decided to throw in Alia as a bonus. Yes I know the background and ground are not really great. But it was really the character design that mattered the most to me.
Please ask me for permission before using my pictures anywhere else.
This is the first of my "Armors Project", which consist of coloring each of X's armors using the offical Capcom CGing style (or as far as I can mimic it...) The armors won't come in any particular order, but I think it was important for this one to come first!
One of the most boring armor for the most boring game of the franchise: Megaman X7, the Glide Armor... If at least there had been 2 armors like in MMX5 and MMX6... Nope! You had that piece of **** that gave you the *awesome* ability to... glide...
X's armor for Megaman X4, among the best armors of the serie. You could chose from two different gun parts (the charge shot was much better though) but the legs were pretty useless... (hover... wtf? Just air dash!)
This was another piece I had put together to sell at an AWA. I had completely different plans for this, but I had to dumb down my concept a lot to make sure I got it done on time (I had to finish this one before Wildflowers that same morning). Someday I owe myself to do a MMX group poster like the one in my head, but until then, the colors on this one are kinda funky nice I guess.
Oh, and as for the guys in the BG, I just picked two from each MMX 1-6, along with all the major boss characters. At the time, Vile was only a memory to many, so it was cool to include him alongside Gate and Hi-Max, who at the time were more popular overall, but now the reverse is so much more true, funny huh?
Anyway, my old ex-roommate was enraged because I didn't put Wheel Gator on it. "A MMX picture without Wheel Gator?" he said. "That's not cool!" Knowing he knew as much about Wheel Gator as my mom, I rolled my eyes a bit.
I like Wheel Gator as much as anyone, but Wheel in place of Stag n' Mag? Please!
Learned 3 new CG aiding methods to make drawings look more slick.
Think it worked pretty good. It's my submission for a contest, which can be found here: [link]
Possibly one of my best works so far, and i'll try to draw some other armors too, including the painstaking Gaia and Ultimate Armor.... Those are a real PAIN to draw, due to the lack of some hi-res official art.............
I hate capcom for the fact that they released so few official pieces, since X4 >_< *throws peanuts at his transformers*
I had to do a tribute to Megaman X and Zero. These characters where a big part of my child hood and influenced me as both a gamer and an artist. Hope to see a triumphant return of these guys sometime in the future.
