The Dirty Half Dozen by imbisibol The Dirty Half Dozen by imbisibol
Okaaaay, this one's for the Megaman 25th Anniversary Tribute by :icongame-art-hq:.

Saw the influx of Megaman tribute art recently. So I told myself, I'm not going to miss this event this time! :shakefist: Deadline is today, December 1st. Cutting it pretty close, so I hope it still makes it. DX

Anyway, this here's the Robot Master cast of the first Classic Megaman game. Done in the style of the group pic in Megaman 5's intro (also done it here [link] ). Have mixed feelings about this pic especially during the halfway point. But I'm glad I was able to salvage it (a bit). Didn't have time to make a do over. DX

Well anyway, hope you guys like it. Thanks! :w00t:


Megaman (Rockman) Capcom


EDIT:
Almost forgot THIS. [link] :headbang:

The Mega Man Network pointed this one out on their tumblr. I've seen it going through your gallery, but I haven't left nearly enough favorites and/or comments on your stuff as I should have when I went through the first time (I think I was just so wowed I wanted to see them all as quickly as possible).

So I think I'll take the time to finally sit down and tell you how awesome I think this is!

You know, if I had to pick out a favorite group of Robot Masters, I don't really know if I could. I like them all, each in their own way. Yes, even those from Mega Man 5, 7, and 8.  The ones from MM1 though, even if it's hardly my favorite game, have become icons in their own right and will always have a special place in my heart.

Now, this piece... it really is something. You have a knack for lighting. Something that I sorely lack, simply because I have not the patience to learn.  It really shows here. You have such expression without using any color at all.

If I were to point out anything that bothered me about this piece, it would probably be the roundness of Guts Man's jaw, which is usually depicted as being a bit more square, but it's a minor gripe, easily passed off as a stylistic choice.

Nonetheless, a very expressive, and dare I say, sinister looking piece here.

Haha I have this (kinda narcissistic) habit of googling "imbisibol" when I'm really really bored, but I never noticed that tumbler entry. Cool. :D

And you're absolutely right about Guts Man's jaw. I guess I never did pay much attention to it. ^^; And you're right about the RMs too, it's hard to pick a favorite batch from all the games. I guess it's kinda like a song album. You may not like all the songs in the album, but there's that one or two or three songs that just stabs you right in the heart, and makes that whole album special.

Anyway, thank you very much man! I love meaty, really well thought out comments like these. :D

I like this picture and management of the gray in the picture, great job as always!
I miss to "Wily" in this picture.

The simplicity in this is great. Nothing more than a monochrome picture and some semi-vague silhouettes, but each figure is not only clearly demonstrating power, but what powers they used have been brought to a proper forefront. The uphill perspective gives it a kind of daunting perspective against what Rock's facing in his first go at Wily's troublemaking. It's simple, but not bad and executed well for what it is.

Thanks man! I wanted the figures to look even more vague than this for that extra mysterious feel, but I just couldn't help but put in the extra detail. ^^;

Thanks again!

Feels like people don't really care much for TimeMan or OilMan these days.
I guess the first 6 are still with strongest impression.

Great luck imbi! <3
Though you don't need it <3 ;3
I really like how you do it xD or it's probably the fact I have some kind of preference of greytones >> and shiny eyes
my favorites are iceman, there's something on him I loved <3
elecman, because he looks so boss >:3(did that make any sense?)
and gutsman xD his helmet... reminded me of a gladiator or something like that : D
great job <3

Haha I don't think there's a selection or anything for this tribute, but thanks! ^^

Elecman was the first one I made, so he looks better than everyone else. I was even supposed to color a bit of him (around the part near the electricity) but ti turned out wierd so i scrapped it.

Oh, and glowy eyes in the dark FTW. :nod:

Thanks again!

heh yes, selections are only made if an entry is really bad, as website admin i have to care about the quality of artworks shown there while i rarely aim for high quality stuff like in link's blacklist, that one was and is about the zelda bosses drawn with a ton of details etc while the mega man tribute is more meant as a way to show that there are mega man fans out there who like to show their tribute to the classic 25 year old game. A lot of the artists featured in the UDOn tribute books as example never draw any mega man or street fighter art before or after the tribute, t looked like they only tried to get the exposure through the medium and were not really fans at all, on game art hq i try to show only stuff made by fans..because they are fans

Oh, what part didn't you get?

I don't know how long I worked on this. I started about two weeks ago. But I've been going at it on and off until I realized it was already December 1st. I kinda rushed the Bomb Man and Guts Man parts in the last few hours before submission. ^^;

Thanks! :)

Oh that. It's just as I said earlier... I was surprised to know that it was December 1 already. I'm stupid with month end dates like that. XD I guess if I'm gonna sum it all up, I took just as much time as I would to make my other pics. Probably around at least 8 hours or so (if you take out the conceptualization and lollygagging phases).
