The End Begins
"The End Begins"
(Mega Man from Mega Man / Based on The Megas)
I recently reintroduced myself to The Megas through their latest releases, History Repeating: Blue and Red, and this rechurned the gears of my gritty Mega Man iteration. I changed the design from my previous homage, instead focusing on a more stoic sort of suspense, with destruction all around him.
I wanted to give the background a more simple watercolor look to contrast with the rough inks of the lineart, definitely giving a strong manga-panel look. I also focused on orange hues to help contrast the blue of Mega Man's armor, though bringing it down to slight purple to not be too offsetting.
