Final Act - Sigma by rockman-forte Final Act - Sigma by rockman-forte
Final Act - Σ

dA wont allow those kind of characters :/

So I finally uploaded it! It took me forever to decide on the background but here it is. I spent a few minutes a day after work working on it but some days I didn't even touch it.


How this poster came about:

Well this was actually initially a commission that was requested by ~NightmareSaber :iconnightmaresaber:

She wanted to see more X work from me in the commission style that I do. The original plan was to just draw X but i got a little carried away and it kinda grew from that. I had just finished playing X from the Megaman X collection (anyone else notice the controls are kinda slow to react?) , and I remembered as a kid being sad when zero died and I kinda wanted to illustrate that in this. I used tons of MHX references to capture it, I also drew Light in the back behind X as more of a visual support as if to say "YOU'RE MANKINDS LAST HOPE... DESTROY HIM X!"
As well as zero as X remembers him before he died telling him to finish off sigma.

I'm also working on an audio to go with this which may lead to a future animation.

I decided to go with the X8 eyes because they show much more emotion. Also I was forced to use the pen tool due to: 1. the brush in Photoshop is giving me problems 2. It was part of the request to make the image look similar to the X mugshot style.

I may add to this in the future but not likely, I have plans for another project.


I've been seeing a lot of stolen art so i decided to add water marks to my work, sorry guys :/

Done in Photoshop CS5

EDIT: I'm considering re-lining this.. I feel like its too artificial with the pen tool.. well see.

lol its ok.. youre right.. theyre all from day of sigma... and sigma is from the official art due to the fact i have NEVER drawn him.. as for the dr light is actually from the x8 art work ..zero is also from day of sigma ... i used a ton of references due to my lack in creativity and my desire to create official looking art. there was actually supposed to be a second poster with vile that i never finished due to the fact my computer got wiped :/ I actually adopted the command mission style or more so the coloring.. and adapted it .. its essentially a cross of CM, x8 and MHX. most of my megaman art is in this style now :B

CRY
YOU HAVE STOLEN MY WISH FROM ME
I CAN NEVER ATTAIN MY DREAMS OF DRAWING MEGA MAN X FAN ART SO OFFICIAL-LIKE I COULD TROLL ALL THEY WHO LOOK AT THEM ;n; *brick'd*
Nah, I'll get there. SOME FRACKING DAY.
Still, your attempts are really good. You can make the art style present, because I can't. xD; All I can do is recognize references used. D:

using references is very very important to learn a style.. i know that the artists of the original megaman series did it.. there are also a few amazing artists that have nailed the other styles.. my initial goal was to be able to do the zero style but it was too difficult.. at the time.. i havnt even tried since then... but i knew a few who are really good and have gotten it down.. for instance ~Tomycase and *ultimatemaverickx theyve also mastered the zx style.. i know a few that have mastered the x style as well.. not many do the command mission style for some reason :o

Many were able to capture the ZX style perfectly. Zero style, very rare if any. Mega Man X style... Few has perfected it, but I see some who tried and had good results, although they usually mimick the one from X4-X6, rarely did they try X8, Command Mission or Maverick Hunter X, the one I'm working on right now. 

The few who have mastered the X style, I look up to them. I also used to attempt ZX style, but I gave up on that. I still draw on that style when I draw ZX fan art though. :D

Nah it takes practice. I don't think two years is enough. :la

The real effort comes to copying the Ace Attorney style, Nuri Kazuya version!

i think any thing thats cel shading is relatively easy.. i actually decided to take a break from fan art and try to challenge myself with new things.. i plan to do maybe 1 more fan art this year around christmas but im essentially going to abandon it for a year

I draw both original and fan art, and it's pretty unpredictable which will come next. :>

Hey
am I seeing references on X's pose
/brick'dIthinkIgottooobsessedwithMHX
/HAHAIFEELLIKEABOSSXD*brick'dshot*
Not to mention Sigma on the background looks just like his MHX official art
Anyway I really like this
I like the purple-esque color scheme
And the overall badassery of this artwork

Anyway at first glance I thought he was using his Command Mission armor, then I noticed that his armor didn't have the white accents. So I thought he was using his regular armor, but... his body was black instead of light blue.
