Crystal Catacomb by Orioto Crystal Catacomb by Orioto
IGN's megaman commission !
This is based on Megaman 5 Crystal stage.

Prints here : [link]

For the wallpapers, [link] or find it on the internet ;)

The big difficulty was to do a "Robot" Megaman that looked like the original sprite, cause he's never like that in any arts...

Done with photomanipulation and digi painting mixed as usual.

From the time when Rockman had good ideas and originality.
Nowadays masterrobots and weapons are so generic (Fire, water, ice, ground, earth, electric)

What do you mean he never looked like the original sprite? Most of the rockman cover arts are pretty much what the sprite looks like.

Anyway, that's a pretty damn awesome picture, the background is really amazing.

Did anyone else but me get TOTALLY pissed off at the falling crystals that knock you into the pit, unless your timing is PERFECT? Thankfully CrystalMan wasn't that tough

Mega Man looks a little worn. Like his eyes are tired from days of just shooting. Kept awake by the sound of blaster fire and impending death. He injects caffeine into himself and frequently pops an E when he has time.

I feel a little sorry for him. GREAT PICTURE!

I like your background work, but I'm not sold on the characters ... they look too plugged in. Trying grounding them more, and give them lighting according to their local environment.

YES! Someone other finally realized Megaman's sprite looked like lifeless robot in the early games. Eternally staring forward, his eyes unable to focus on anything.

Nice work on the stage. Can't say I dig the motion blur much, since it kinda takes away the feeling that it could be a screenshot.

Gawd, this one is my favorite of yours so far!!
Full of win! Megaman looks VERY GREAT!! Maybe the eyes are a bit too big (looks like he drunk a lot of coffee)...

Instead of MM9's retro 8bit GFX, Megaman 10 should stick with graphics like THIS.


Such a great work from a very talented artist! Keep it up!

I have been a follower of your video game work for some time now. so i figure i would sign up to the site. Only thing that bothers me is did you purposely leave the iceman in the background to the right, or was it an accident? just looks weird to me for some reason.

But i like it anyway :)

This is really awesome - I agree, this could and should be what a future mega man side scroller looks like. It reminds me of Kirby 64 in the best way possible.

I think you did very well creating a version of Mega that satisfies both the robotic and 8-bit ness about him.

I really like these scenes. :)

YAY!

I had a similar opinion on Mega Man's original look--I wish he looked more "Robot-like" in the next-gen sequels!
I always imagined him that way as a kid, maybe with a little Tron thrown in for good measure (see my deviations for more info)!

I know you say many of your pieces contain manipulated imagery but for the life of me I can never find any of it... they always looks painted to me.
