Megaman X comic transition by Silent-Neutral Megaman X comic transition by Silent-Neutral
I decided to redraw the second page from one of my old shitty 2005 comics that I never finished. It was called 'Unconscious Mind' though I can't exactly remember why, or what ideas I had planned for it. but it doesn't matter cos it sucks anyway ahaha

I was fairly shocked at the transition - I originally drew it when I was 13.
it just looks so horrible when I compare it to now….
I’m quite pleased with the frontal view of my OC and a lot more pleased with the panel underneath, of X losing it. :heart:
I’m just very grateful I’ve come far and actually improved…I’m ashamed to look back on the horrible pictures I drew then.
5 years doesn’t sound like much, but it feels so long ago…Still, I cringe lol….i mean, they’re just so embarrassing and inconsistent in style.
…This was rather unusual for me to decide to do, since this is something I have already drawn. well that and it’s Megaman X. He always makes me happy.

Anyways, as for the OC there….I was never interested in creating Ocs back then, but I needed a character for this specific story….i’m not sure, but I think I wanted it to have Magma Dragoon or Mattrex/Burn Dinorex in it, but since it’s hard to find references on them, I must have just decided to create something ‘similar’ that sort of combined their designs and thus, created ‘Voltrogon’.
Yeahhhh….sorry if it looks like a cheap version of M Dragoon and Mattrex…I tried to change Voltrogon’s design in the redrawn version, because I was noob years ago and didn’t quite understand robotic anatomy…including facial expressions, (I even added nostrils…?? Wtf) so I made Voltrogon a lot more blocky >_> so yeah, like Mattrex more, I guess.

Anyways I’m thinking of furthering his design, because it still looks like an existing X-character which makes me cringe… because I feel irritated when I see rip-off fan-characters with no creative mind or originality behind it. Just putting that out there >_>

No problem! :) I remember submitting some of your stuff and thinking to myself, "hm...Silent-Neutral has an interesting way of drawing X, I like"! You know, before MMXC was a group, I got to see so many deviations but I never got the chance to comment on them. :/ I'm happy that I can now and encourage you guys to keep up the awesome.

Improvement is always awesome. :heart:

Obviously, I like the second page much much more. :icondurrhurrplz:

Have you ever considered changing the box sizes for the comic layout? Using equal sized boxes all the time is rather boring. :3

I admit that the panels are plain, but I wanted to resemble the layout as the original, so I could compare more easily. Except for the unfinished one at the bottom cos I didn't have enough room..but I couldn't draw it anyway lol.

The shading on the second page is VERY good - and the comic itself looks interesting. Work on the panels, but asides from that, I genuinely think you should have another go at it : )

Lol - no problem. It's always good to look back and see where you've improved : )
And do! If there's panels you want to redraw, do it, it's really good practise!
