I was recently participating in a competition promoted by Game Artisans [link]
, the Comicon Challenge. The main theme of the competition was to make a redesign of any super hero or super villain in a different era. I chose megaman. First, coz the little blue guy is super cool!!! Second, I simply LOVE Capcom! Make my own vision of one of Capcom's characters is always a must. And third, There was lots of known characters like Batman, Spider Man, Superman, etc. But no Megaman. Also, I chose Steampunk era, because I think it fits Megaman perfectly... The perfect place for a Pinocchio-like Fighting Robot living his struggle against the super megalomaniac mad scientist that wants to rule the world. Resuming: super cool stuff!!!!
We worked over 5 weeks on the development of the character. I tried some different designs for him and this is the final one. This image is my final submission for the contest. Also we had to submit a model sheet and a work flow sheet. You can see my process, initial sketches, pencils for the final illustration and painting progression in my thread at game artisans at [link]
or at my blog [link]
Hope you dig, people!!! Comments are very welcome.
