we are the dead by RenonVesir we are the dead by RenonVesir
Full view for the love of all that is holy.

So the Protomen were in town tonight. I went to see them, bought a lot of cool swag, and got them to sign a poster for me. I am pleasantly deaf. I also gave them a shoddy little printout of this picture. I attempt to appease my rock gods with fanart.

More or less based on the end of the song 'The Sons of Fate, where Megaman is forced to fight his brother to the death, only to realize the people he sacrificed everything for feel nothing..

He looks a little 'urf' in the face and his leg anatomy looks funny to me, still. -sigh- But I hope they liked it.

The coloring and detail is amazing, plus his expression is eerie in a good way

I jus love thelook on his face. You caught the shock and confusion he went through at that moment. I can see it especially in the eyes.

you really got the feel of the story in this... I can almost hear the crowd...

This really is a great depiction of Megaman. It's dark and fitting to the Protomen story, but he almost still has that innocence about him that he's always had.

Also congrats on seeing them. D: As far as I know they're not coming where I am anytime soon..

Awesome. Truly a masterpiece for all to behold.
The L.I.G.H.T. Brigade would be proud.

This is really beautiful. I think you've actually done pretty well on his face! He looks shocked, and hopeless, and there's something distinctly mechanical about his eyes.

His outfit is a perfect combination of robot and western badass. Awesome.

I only wish it was in a wider orientation to fit my desktop... I'll make it work, lol ;D

This is made of one part epic, two parts WIN, and three parts pure freakin awesomeness. *thumbs up*

What's with the blood? I didn't realize robots had blood. The composition could use a bit more action in it, and megaman wouldn't be so mechanical if you maybe had him show some emotion other than boredom.

Funny, I just told you to make them more robotic and followed it up with "less mechanical"

I don't mean to sound so harsh, but art school does crazy things to people.
RenonVesir Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2009
Play Megaman X sometime and get back to me on the blood thing. I didn't personally care for his expression myself and had some issues with the anatomy, but I was working on a deadline. It wasn't an action shot. That's why there isn't action in it.

When you actually decide to give constructive crit instead of being nasty, let me know. I don't think going to art school is a good excuse for being rude to people.
13mad-world-remakes Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2009
You're right I'm just in a bad mood. Going to an art school is no exscuse to be rude, but the irritating things that happen there are very valid excuses.

PS I happen to be an asshole by nature so somethings I think are constructive are just down right rood and nasty.

Whoah, and here I wad thinking I was the only one drawing Protomen-fanart. Awesome drawing, will you do one Protoman too?
RenonVesir Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2009
I actually did draw a Protoman inpsired-by picture, but I think it's just a little too anime-colorful to fit the theme. :3


Maybe I'll try him again someday!
TheLandoBros Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, that one was nice too, but as you said, maybe a bit too comic-like.
When I draw them, I always draw them as humanoid machines, so maybe I'm a bit too over the line on the other end.
But a mix between the two is probabaly what's most like the band's original concept.
RenonVesir Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2009
Yeah. That or some western flair, like something from wild arms. -grin- But I'll keep at it until I'm happy.
Fragraham Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I kind of like the whole lanky look. It helps it fit with the stylized feel of the Protomen art.
InnoTenshi Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2009
This is just awesome.

Fight the good fight. :heart:
RenonVesir Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2009
Thank you!

The battle is not yet lost!

it's unusual to see a piece with so much shadow -- nice work! :)
