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 But since I don't own the lisence, I figure I'll put this out there for now and see where this goes.

I would love to see a Protoman mockup from you :) I like your style, and I always thought that this character would need a proper game. He's as deep as Zero with it's envy, anger and search for perfection. Just saying :)

That Roll is so cute!

 You've done well here, all combined into a great piece. Good work.

 I agree that V1 roll was cuter. *nods* she looks a lil "psychic" on this one. her eyes give a "I'ma broom you to death" impression.... D: but yea, nice contrast.

I've always hated Roll for some reason.  I just don't like her design or even her existence in the later games.

Anyways I like these for their strong contrast and use of black.  Gives them a very nice sense of depth and form.

 Megaman lost his cannon arm!!

Great work. Really nice. Fav + 5/5

 very impressive. I like roll especially ( I always thought she could need her own game in the classic series)

I am rather unsure if Capcom will ever do anything with it, especially since Inafune is now working on Mighty No. 9.

awesome sprites none the less.

 Why not pitch this to the guys making Mighty No. 9? :D Cause, these are GODDAMNED AWESOME.
