Doodle A Day: Day 26 Shadow Man

February 29, 2012 1 comment

Shadow Man is another one of my favorite Robot Masters for the most obvious reason being that he’s a freaking robot ninja!!!

One thing I find odd about Shadow Man is that his weakness is Top Man’s Top Spin.  So if the information from Mega Man 3 is correct if you ever find yourself in a fight against a ninja just spin at them and they won’t stand a chance.

I’d also like to point out that for Shadow Man and used his design from the manga Mega Man MegaMix and GigaMix as I find the look is far superior over the original.  Also Shadow Man having one eye closed is another nod to the manga.

Doodle A Day: Day 25 Top Man

February 28, 2012 2 comments

I tried making Top Man look all dizzy like he just came out of a spin, and I’m not really sure if it’s a success or not.  There’s some aspects of it that look fine but others that look really off.  But I decided to keep it just in case I try to attempt something like this again so I can see if I’ve improved at all.

With Top Man I begin to suspect that the people at Capcom were really running low on ideas for new Robot Masters.  They’ve already gone through the base elements in 1 and 2, so the only logical solution is to move on to inanimate objects.

As much as I think the existence of Top Man is kinda ridiculous his theme is one of my favorites because you can really picture something spinning around and around as the beat goes on.

Doodle A Day: Day 24 Needle Man

Normally for my doodles I draw two lines for the eyes and call it a day, but for Needle Man I discovered something that prevented my from doing that.  If you draw Needle Man with just lines for eyes, his face looks a lot like Bon Bonne from Mega Man Legends.  So because of this I had to give Needle Man a full set of eyes.

Doodle A Day: Day 23 Hard Man

February 26, 2012 Leave a comment

I ended my Mega Man 2 doodles with my favorite Robot Master of all time and I begin Mega Man 3 with one of my least favorite Robot Masters of all time.  Hard Man is just one big bowl of uncomfortable, from his shape to his name I can’t help but think Hard Man was created for the sole purpose of making penis jokes around the Capcom offices.

Doodle A Day: Day 22 Rush

February 25, 2012 Leave a comment

I’m kicking off Mega Man 3 with Mega Man’s faithful robotic dog Rush, who made his first appearance in Mega Man 3.  Rush is much more than just a robotic dog, but he’s a invaluable ally in Mega Man’s continuing fight against Dr. Wily providing the Blue Bomber with some much needed support.

I really enjoyed drawing Rush because it gave me a break from drawing humanoid figures over and over. I also used to draw a lot of animals as a kid so drawing Rush was a bit nostalgic for me.

Doodle A Day: Day 21 Air Man

I saved the best of the Mega Man 2 Robot Masters for last.  Not only is Air Man my favorite Robot Master from Mega Man 2, but he’s my favorite Robot Master of all time!!!

Air Man is my favorite for multiple reasons, his design is very unique amongst the rest of the Robot Masters so it makes him stand out, he’s one if not the hardest Robot Masters to fight (even with his weakness) and last but not least Air Man is awesome because of the song Air Man Will Not Die, which is embedded below.

So with Air Man out of the way Mega Man 2 is done and tomorrow I begin Mega Man 3!

Doodle A Day: Day 20 Metal Man

Metal Man is another of my favorite Robot Masters I really like his design and his weapon is one of the best in the series. When I think of Metal Man I like to think he’s rocking out right before Mega Man enters his boss room.  So to give Metal Man something to rock out to I’m embedding a remix of Metal Man’s theme below.
