Megaman X Tribute by Lukael-Art Megaman X Tribute by Lukael-Art
This was my entry for Udon's Megaman Tribute artbook. Sadly, it did not make it in the book. :(

Oh well, there it is for you to enjoy! I spent dozens and dozens of hours on this one! I'll just have to try again harder next time.

Megaman X, my very first SNES game, and still one of my favorites! People talk a lot of the old Megaman games, but the X games were really fun platformers too! Well, not all of them, but. Some of them.

Game and characters (C) Capcom
Art (C) *kidnix

This IS an absolute masterpiece! I have never seen anything like this! The colors are just the right amount of brightness. It's almost as if it's lifelike. In addition to realism, the expressions on the Mavericks' faces are very fitting towards them! Sigma's face stands out the most because he looks like a power-hungry dictator itching for world domination. MegaMan X and Zero sure look fantastic in this as well. X's armor looks very shiny, hardcore, and awesome! Zero, on the other hand, has that "badass" look on his face. Excellent work, you really strived for this epic masterpiece! Great!

This is one of the best Megaman X artworks that I've seen. The Shading gives it a really dramatic look and gives it a dark atmosphere that the X series was know for. The Maverick Designs are dead on and you have done a really good job. The colors are vibrant. Sigma's Dark and maniacal expression is the cherry on top for this piece. Zero looks amazing, and X is really well drawn. If I had to choose the best part of the piece, I would say Storm Eagle because of the posture, colors, and shading in the all the right areas.

Wow.  That's really amazingly detailed.  I especially love the shadow effect on Sigma.

Your very first SNES game? Cool, while for many others it was Super Mario World and/or The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Mega Man X was the very first Mega Man title I've ever played, and that one IS my all-time favorite game.

What an awesome piece this is by the way.

I've been meaning to comment on this one for a while. I remember seeing your many replies to the contest while it was still ongoing and your subsequent despondent journal entry (which you have since deleted) when this picture was rejected. I believe you when you said you wanted to win the most, judging by the frequency of your posts, and I know what it's like to lose something that means this much to you. I felt the same way when I lost a character design contest hosted by :iconandrewdickman: So I just wanted to offer my opinion to help you score a page in the next Tribute.

First of all, there's nothing wrong with your technique. Your colours are vibrant, the shading is dynamic and there are crisp, coloured lines. But when it comes to UDON and their artbooks, they place style above all else. I'll be frank: there's nothing creative or imaginative about this piece. If you flip through the three Tribute books, you'll see winning submissions have painted their submissions in the style of a fairytale, mosaic, pamphlet, claymation, schematics, etc. The MM Tribute already has its fair share of group shots painted in unique styles given the number of characters in the franchise, and yours doesn't offer anything special by having the MMX1 cast just standing around. You need to be more original than that. What about a sports promo of Strike Man, or a hieroglyph map of Pharaoh Man's stage, or a 19th century Transcontinental Railroad poster with Charge Man? It's that sort of brilliance that makes UDON stop and say, "Ah, now that's clever!", and it increases your chances of being selected. Who knows, maybe UDON will host another contest for an Ace Attorney, Resident Evil or Devil May Cry Tribute at the end of the year, and you have until then to think of something utterly ingenious to guarantee a place in it this time. Good luck.

PS. Lay off the Clouds filter in the background. A good artist hides his filters.

Ahahah yeah I was really into it back then, I don't often participate in that kind of events, so when I do, I want to win! I was pretty bitter when I lost but hey, it's no use complaining and I didn't want to come off as a sore loser so that's why I deleted the journal. :) I'd rather have more positive and interesting things being on my front page.
About the picture itself, I wholeheartedly agree with you and I believe that may very well be the reason why they didn't pick it. For me it was a big accomplishment due to the sheer amount of elements and work that went into it, and I'm satisfied with it for that reason, but as you say, there isn't anything particular or original about it. It's the crew standing around. I did it because I felt like giving myself a challenge and because that's the picture I felt like doing at the time but it's true that quantity does not prevail over quality. :) Have I had more time on my hands, I would have done a second, more situation-based picture with less character and more cleverness to it, sadly I did not have the time. That does not mean I won't participate in future events, and if I do so I shall take your advice in consideration. ;) Thanks for the comment!
