Long time no art!
I've spent a good bit of time thinking of how I would do a modern version of the original Megaman series. This was an attempt to capture my thoughts into something more solid. My thought process is that while MM8 and 7 were a visual upgrade to the NES sprites, things often got harder to read, and you lost a bit of the abstraction the series is known for.
My attempt tries to capture the same level of detail, but I've kept the original proportions a little more, and I've used the same hard, black shadows the NES used. This way, you can have really detailed and colored backgrounds while the sprites are really visible.
Naturally, I'd love to pich this to Capcom (along with my X9 idea http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fy1Tt29U1vo) But since I don't own the lisence, I figure I'll put this out there for now and see where this goes.
