It's Only Rock n' Roll... by TheLandoBros It's Only Rock n' Roll... by TheLandoBros
...(but I Like It). That's the full title by the way;

It's only Rock n' Roll (But I Like It)

Shame that Udon didn't :P This is my submission for the delayed Mega Man Triute, and nope, I wasn't included. Hope someone elses sculpture made the cut! Here's-hoping-for-a-not-straight 2D-art-book.

Anyway, this i my piece, what to say, sculpted from Super Sculpey, firm and soft, then baked and painted with Games Workshop acrylics.

I really love the more realistic, hard boiled and dystopian version of Mega man that one can see, if one wishes to, in the original games. He's become more of a lousy anime-dude of late (don't even mention powered up people) and I don't support that at all :P So here he is, (hopefully) badass with his mega buster loaded, burning power cores and full of battle damage! Guess you could sat this piece is Protomen inspired, even though it's the 8-bit Mega Man which i don't tend to use when doing Proto-fanart.

Then I did Roll as well! I just had to, she's wielding two wicked wrenches! (notice the brand?) She was way harder than mega man, in every way, but she turned out ok didn't she?

The base is nothing fancy, plasticard and cardboard on a wooden base, the markings says "Dr. W" btw.

When I was starting to complete the piece, I did the met/hardhat dude as a bonus, as well as the telly, I really like how they turned out, maybe I'll post some detail shots later.
Might post some wips/process pics aswell!

My first thought was "But I like it, like it, yes I do!", Which is completely true.
My second thought was "Huh. Looks like a 40k sculpture."

Great that you get the reference, and great that you like (?) 40 K, i Love that universe and it always finds it's way itno my work xD This was supposed to be kinda badass and gritty, reference in itself to the Protomen (.com) and stuff. So yeah :D

Haha, guess I probably could sell it, but it would probably be too expensive for anyone to afford :P I mean just the materials are like $70 and then all the time, like, a week atleast working with this, probably more :P
If I would selle it I'm pretty sure I'd never make enough money to make it worthwhile xD

well i have you say you sure have telent! you really should take like...comissions or something! :O
also may i ask how big they are?

and im sure you would get a good price on this XD

Thanks :] I've been thinking about taking comissions, but it depends, the materials I sue for this is quite expensive, so, therefore, the comission rates would have to be materials+something to actually earn a bit from the work xD But.. who knows, might be something I'd try in the future :)

They're about.. 30 cm high, like 1 foot. The whole piece is about that size too, wide and height-wise.

It's a real shame Udon didn't select this - handmade submissions are few and far between, and this has so much heart in it : )
Still, we get to see it here, so thank you for making it! I think it's gorgeous :heart:

Yeah, I really thought they'd like a weird submission like this one, here's hoping that some other sculpt made it in, a pure 2D book is just boring :/
Two sculptures were included in the Darkstalkers book, none in the SF one, oh well.

Glad you liked it anyway :D

Hehe, yeah. I've actually got a new sculpture in the works, Video game themed, although, another classic game, not Mega Man this time... but I think it'll beat this one ;D

it looks really good, but theres something about megamans anatomy that bothers me but i can't quite put my finger on what it is

There's alot of minor errors here and there really, I was really stressed trying to make the deadline (which Udon later pushed forward,gargh)
The thing I regret most about Mega Man is that he became kinda thin, seen from the side. And, one should perhaps note, that I did hime more "realistic" in way, than he's usually portrayed. Not like a "real" human, but, well, like a more realistic short Mega Man :P
Glad you liked it anyways!

the modeling is absolutely amazing! maybe it's just cause he looks rather cross-eyed

Thank yooou~~ :3 I think I prefer Roll (the girl) over Mega Man here too.. she was really hard to sculpt, but still ended upp almost exaclty like we wanted her to look, and that doesn't happen very often xD The hardest part was her hair and the bow though.. a real pain to sculpt it right xD
