This is the entry that I submitted to
for the Mega Man Tribute book.
In case anyone out there has not seen the full list of winners, you can check out Udon's blog where they posted the announcement.
I worked pretty hard on this piece, and I honestly thought that I had a good shot of being included. I guess it goes to show that I still have far to go. But disappointment aside, I still learned quite a bit while working on this piece, and I hope that I can continue to improve.
So while it's not going to "ever" be seen in print, here it is in its full-colored glory. If you take a look at the Mega Man 3 Boss pic I posted before, you should notice that I actually used a similar layout for the bosses. That was quite unintentional, but I ran with it once I noticed. The first piece could then be seen as the confrontation scene, and this is the beginning of the full fight!
