Format: Use the provided template, and NES colors.



Bonus challenge: Use the original Mega Man 2 font when creating your boss name.

Going for a sort of puppet theme for Wood Man. Tried to include a dovetail design in his helmet!

Here's an example for anyone who's having trouble understanding the rules. Just a quick idea I threw together.

Yes, you can either do your own new idea, or copy an old boss type.

HOT DAMN! I actually used to be one of those Mega Man fangame types so maybe I'll do all my old robot masters in addition to just one as my entry. Unless we're allowed to do multiple portraits/sprites in one entry that is...

You can enter as many times as you like. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Alright, here's my designs, refurbished from my old Mega Man fangame days: https://imgur.com/a/2G3I7
I'll be doing each and every one in one big compilation, if that's acceptable as an entry that is!

Super cool designs!

I do believe you have to submit them all one by one (which will make voting for us even harder), but it would definitely be cool if you submit all 9 designs!

That would also mean 9 shining new badges, who wouldn't want those?

@Jerry: I hope you submit that, that is awesome!

I thought we could only do one entry per challenge? Either way...

you don't have to use the font provided, you can make a thinner one. Also maybe abbreviate some of the name, like Dr. Instead of doctor
