UPDATE: My entry was, in fact, chosen for UDON’s Mega Man Tribute! They just took a long time to notify people. So…yay!
So this was my entry into Udon’s Mega Man Tribute. My understanding was that winners would be notified no later than March 1st, and since I was never contacted (boo!), I figured it was safe to post.
I’m not upset that it wasn’t picked. I’m really happy with how it came out and I think it amounts to one of my best illustrations (certainly took me a lot of time to make), so at least there’s that. It’ll be something cool to sell prints of or whatever, and will make a fine addition to the portfolio.
My favorite Mega Man game was also my first: Mega Man 3. It has the best music and the wildest cast of robot masters whose order of destruction isn’t immediately obvious (I still find myself forgetting to this day). At the young age of 4, I remember walking into my parents dark bedroom one morning and begging them to let me rent the video game with the blue guy and his red dog on the cover, and later that day we went and got it. The rest is history.
I chose Top Man because he was my favorite as a kid. I was a weird kid, haha. I guess I just liked how different he was and I thought his roller skates were cool. Plus, I was actually able to get to his boss room and defeat him without too much trouble at such a young age, so I felt like he was my bitch and I owned him and I liked that.
Anyway, I hope you like the illustration!
