Megaman Goes West

Continuing with the western theme, here's one of Megaman and all of the main heroines of the game.

I started off doing heavy outlines for the rough sketch, but then I liked how it looked and ended up keeping the style. Also, I tried to draw some kind of techno-stage coach; some people thought it was actually a tank!

Not sure how I'm going to approach coloring this... full on rendering might be a waste of the shadowy lineart.

Megaboy? Cowman?

Another Megaman Legends piece... this time of Megaman himself.

The reason for the western themed bits is because one of the leading heroine choices is heavily cowboy/native american styled... If she wins, I can picture the plot/design of MML3 possibly taking a western influenced direction.

Which I wouldn't mind one bit.

Megaman Legends 3!!!

After a long 10 years, they've finally announced Megaman Legends 3. I totally loved the first two games, so I'm really looking forward to this one!

This time, they've decided to actively include the fans in the design process... so far in the form of polls, the first of which is to decide on the design for a new heroine who appears in the new game.
When the poll went up, they didn't have any information about the role of the character, so I voted on one purely based on the design. But later they revealed that rather than a player character she would be an "operator", a support character for a "digger" (which is what the player usually plays as).

Anyways, the character I chose isn't faring too well in the polls, so I decided to do a piece of fan art for her as a sort of consolation prize.
