Mega Man 1 celebrates its 25th Birthday on the 17th December 2012

Reason enough to celebrate it with an art tribute about the first game or?

Capcom itself seems to have some problems with MegaMan..its time to get him some spotlight!

Like for Link`s Blacklist or the Kirby Tribute in May…   you are welcome to participate in an Art Tribute for the popular game and its characters.

This will be published on Game-Art-HQ-com including screenshots, original art and a lot background informations to the first Mega Man. I ll see if i can get music remixers onboard for this tribute as well via OCR!  How cool would it be to get a gallery up with all 8 robot masters and also offer an album or a collection of remixes with the music of their stages?

This project was actually announced back in february already but with a different focus. Due to the creativity and success  by the artists who chosed themselfes what they would draw for Link`s Blacklist or the Kirby tribute, i thought it may be better to let YOU decide what you want to draw instead of giving you a list with the Mega Man I characters and let you claim Elec Man etc.

Every artist can claim up to 3 spots in this project
The absolute deadline is the 1st December
Your claim needs to be related to Mega Man I. Not 2,3,4,5,X,Zero etc.  Elements and characters of the later games can be in the entry, but in general it should be about MM1. Tributes for the sequels might follow.
No Nudity, strong violence usual.
On Game Art HQ your submissions will most likely be seen by thousands of visitors. Currently the Kirby tribute was seen by over 40K visitors as example since May. The Mortal Kombat Tribute there over 80K times even. It is not in my and not in your interest if you submit  something which is just not compareable with the standard of the artworks you see in this group.  I wont judge your art, but the visitors do, and its your linked nick below your work, not mine.

Have mine ready... [link]

It's a Fireman! yeah.. I know... there are other 2 guys doing the same robot master... but was the only thing that came to my mind. XD... Î hope that serves for the tribute. ^^

sure, he is okay, since there were not so many characters its okay to have more than one entry per robot master of course

It doesn't look like we have a GutsMan one yet. You can put me down for Mega vs. Guts.

Do you remember which power takes out Gutsman? I'd probably draw Megaman in that color.
Reinhold-Hoffmann's avatar
pooh! I don`t remember that ^^

But nice you are onboard with a gutsman piece
hybridmink's avatar
Yeah I couldn't think of all 8 so I looked it up and only saw the 6.

I believe I claimed Roll and Iceman (separately) months ago xD
How and where should the artwork be sent again?
Reinhold-Hoffmann's avatar
Directly to this group :-)
IanDimas's avatar
Hey, just wanted to let you know I finished my Iceman piece too: [link]
