I finished these months ago, but just realized I never uploaded them to dA.

The collage was a freaking catastrophe, but I was pretty proud of how these pics turned out.

I've seen this several times on Twitter, Tumblr and now here. And it NEVER gets old. Nice job!

Looked up the full collages...
Well, it's... individually some of the characters wasn't bad, but then the collage is just sort of just all the submitted works squeezed together on a nearly plain blue background and... WHELP I'd rather look at each picture by themselves rather than the collages. //idk

And these two are among the best. There's just something attractive about soft colors and the amount of detail you put into a single cake.

also after finishing my revising and finally having enough time to do more than draw off my boredom or pop around I was sorta checking what's happening in the blogs I follow and I had to say, either your mother had reaaalllyy high standards or something. My mom's unimpressed by my stuff a lot of the time(games really aren't bothered about where she lives in), too. But no matter what, I'm sure all the people who have seen your work would put it among the best. //sorryimweird

I must say these two are exemplary of the few gems of that otherwise disappointing 'Fiasco'
Such potential soiled by such bad organisation.

Hey now, thank you so much! And you're telling me - I still have a bad taste in my mouth from the whole thing. Yikes.

Your drawing and coloring are exquisite. EXQUISITE, I say. :worship: You should be proud of how these pics turned out! Glad you decided to upload them to dA. :) (Was wondering when you would, you! ^^)

Great detail on both of them! And I love how you incorporated the "heat" part of Heat man with the candles on that Mega Man cake. :D Very nice! Also, your cute Axl is aaaaagh I can't help but smile in seeing him like that! ^w^ :heart: I like how his hair indicates a "WHOOSH" motion, almost like he's dancing!
:icondancinglaplz: Excellent work!!!!!! (is an understatement)

Altho I'm a little sad now seeing Heat Man can't blow out B-Day candles : (

Never did quite understand exactly what went wrong with that collage. Can anyone clarify?

First of all it was delayed significantly. Now that's not so bad in of itself, but the reasons for its delay were pretty obnoxious. Bad organization - the two coordinators couldn't properly speak in the same language together. Secondly, a number of artists involved were sent back their artwork though they did not break the rules that were put forth in the beginning. Then there were inconsistencies about when to resubmit their artwork and there was just really poor communication overall.

And THEN they tried to do a collaboration with a separate Japanese 25th anniversary artbook project, which was impossible because the book was pretty much finalized at that point. Again, miscommunication galore.

Sure they got it done eventually, but I'd argue it wasn't even worth the wait =_=
