Back in 7th Grade, I did a bunch of drawings based on the bosses of Megaman 3, which was the hot new game at the time.
(Yeah, I am old...)
Anyways, here's the main Boss cast, with my own updated designs. I still wanted to make them as close to their original counterparts as possible, so I used a bunch of references. I used the Megaman Knowledgebase Wiki to confirm a bunch of details, but what I used most, mainly for nostalgic inspiration, was my old Nintendo Power issue that featured Megaman 3.
Anyone remember that gem?
Clockwise starting from the upper left we have Top Man, Spark Man, Gemini Man, Hard Man, Shadow Man, Magnet Man, Snake Man and Needle Man. Of these, I think Magnet Man and Snake Man are my favorite redesigns, though Hard Man came out extremely cool.But there was something else I did with these guys I'm still rather proud of. Let's just say I was underwhelmed by the last boss, Gamma...
