Mavericks by SebastianvonBuchwald Mavericks by SebastianvonBuchwald
EDIT: Higher resolution version here: [link]

There's history behind this piece.

What started out as a non-paying commission (that's a long story in itself) turned into a Mega Man Tribute entry (which is something I regret terribly in hindsight, I should've submitted a new piece from scratch instead of trying to re-appropriate something I was doing for somebody else) and has ended as the piece you see above. It changed from being vertical to horizontal, from having X, Zero and/or Sigma in various places and in the actual positioning of the Mavericks many, many times but, after some reworking, I've finally arrived at something that I like enough to put up here.

It's old stuff and not my favorite work by any stretch of the imagination but there you go.

I always feel MMX series robot masters are always so colorful.

These in particular are my favorite bosses out of any of the Mega Man series. But then again, I've always had a soft spot for the original MMX. :)

My favorites are probably X3 and X4

I played little of X2 and X3 but I enjoyed X4 a lot as well. :)

I think X4 is a lot of people's favorite.

I think this is quite a nice piece actually. Takes me back to the original Mega Man X in all its glory.

Favorite Theme: Storm Eagle
Favorite Maverick Design: Launch Octopus
Most memorable boss fight: toss-up between Boomer Kuwanger and Sting Chameleon.

Quite colorful and it just brings back the awesomeness of Mega Man X. :D

Thanks! Mega Man X is perhaps one of those games that makes me most nostalgic about my childhood. Still love every second of it. :)

Hey now, this is still very cool.
I esspecially like Storm Eagle's pose (of course he's the focal point). And the way you did his wings, very stylish.

Though I will always have fond memories of the first X. It feels a bit unpolished to me now.
Personally, I feel X2's the one that nailed it.

I never actually played X2. I think I tried it on emulators for like 10 minutes but that was about it. X is one of those games that holds a great amount of nostalgia for me and I loved replaying it on the PSP. :)

I really want to see this in higher resolution.

The actual file is at least 3x larger but my stuff starts to fall apart the bigger the resolution. That's why I try to keep it small.

You should try grabbing Pain Tool Sai. It has an auto-curve tool to help keep really clean lines. It's what I use for the Time Tangent promo art.
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
I actually use Sai fairly often but I barely use the linework layer. I generally prefer to ink on paper and then scan it, I think I have much more control over my line that way. I do get the rougher edges but it's only noticeably at higher resolutions.
