MegaMan tribute piece

Udon is publishing a MegaMan tribute book. I had the honor of being included in the book which is chalk full of user submissions and professional invitations.

I really had fun with this illustration. This year I've gotten much better at painting full scenes with a little more composition and allot more polish. Aside from my recent Crazy 4 Cult piece, this one was one of my favorite's this year (including all the postcard illustrations).

Andrew Wilson's MegaMan Tribute piece.

Although I've got to tell you that I'm working on something that should kick the crap out of all these other paintings. But we'll keep that a secret until next week. Shall we?

Here's some info on the book that's coming out:

-the book is premiering at the San Diego Comic-con at the UDON booth (#5037), July 20-24

-for fans not attending the show, you can preorder the book at UDONstore.com (http://www.udonstore.com/Mega-Man-Tribute-HC-Udon-Store-Exclusive-p/mega-man-tribute-exclusive-hc.htm )

Yup Stevie, the art has been done but Udon just now said we could post images. Nice turtle. :-)

Thanks DbDesign.

And mr. Rampage, I'mma bout to pass up but I'll throw a tumblr up tomorrow morning. Those are always a chore for me to do for some nonsensical reason.

Taking on a Blue Bomber tribute? That takes guts, man.

Seeing your style on this makes me think about the Powered Up edition. Love it!
