Udon Entertainment presents... Mega Man Tribute
« on: December 08, 2010, 05:07:57 PM »
Udon Entertainment has been teasing fans for days about their upcoming work, and it has finally been revealed: Mega Man Tribute.


MMT is a fanbook that spans Classic, X, Zero, ZX and Legend series. And Udon promises that this will be the biggest Megaman project ever.
They are also looking for artist submissions, that will be included in the book.

The book will premiere at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con, a 300 page limited edition hard-cover book.

Official site for Mega Man Tribute <--- You can find details for art submissions inside.

Special thanks to Irgendein for letting me know of this.

I'm watching you all. Always watching.

I'm torn on this. On the one hand, my artwork could make it into the book. On the other hand, it probably won't, and if it does, it'll no longer be mine.

Damn...

This is great. And there's enough time to make it. I'll surely submit something :)

cool. Though wow at the guidelines. NOTHING outside of the games at all, including designs used in the mangas and such. So no Ariga styled characters.

Now, Im assuming it WILL be made available outside of San Diego Comicon right? >.>;

would suck if it was made some sort of exclusive tribute book only available there.
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

Now I can't unsee it.

Vent and Aile turned out fine, though. Bad angle for Grey and Ashe, methinks.

I noticed that too. Huh.

But I may or may not be intrested in this, mainly because I may be more intrested in wrapping up my official complete works collection.
Workshop/DA/YT/Photobucket なにかんがえてるの!?
So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

Im certain it wont be ALL fanart. Plus Udon knows their stuff. You wont find a Girla type scribble for example. And some of Udon's artists are Megaman Fans themselves, so im certain there will be Udon art there too.

Hmm, submit or not submit that's the question.

I don't think I'm good enough though.

Man, that's awesome, but it just sucks that I'm unable to get my hands on or find any of the UDON Tribute Books, not even the comics out in stores.

I have a hard time telling if this book is a good, or bad idea.

Also, a question, will the artists who contribute to this get paid or something? Or maybe they'll get a free copy of the book at least?
Or will they get a different present?
Not planning to contribute (since I can't draw) but... there must be something people contributing will get from this? After all, Udon will be making money from the art they drew, sooo...

They get the satisfaction of having their art in a Mega Man tribute book.

All submissions become capcom property.

There's some motivation to get me drawing again.  Too bad I still can't shade for crap, but at least I can do competent flat-colors...  *sighs*

Im certain it wont be ALL fanart. Plus Udon knows their stuff. You wont find a Girla type scribble for example. And some of Udon's artists are Megaman Fans themselves, so im certain there will be Udon art there too.
Udon often strikes me as having a strong tie with the MegaMan fanbase.  Correction of "Rock" in the Powered Up! page of MMOCW being a major point, as well as their use of traditional X5 Maverick names.  They also maintained the use of "Force Armor", although that one's technically incorrect (the fans keep it popular because it sounds cooler).

And actually, I can see that in the way that they arranged the cover-art.  First of all, you'll notice it's all the "platforming" MegaMen and not the "chip collecting" ones ("legal reasons", eh?).  Second, the "triangle of focus" in the image is clearly Rock, X, and Trigger, the original "big three" series of the franchise, with Zero/ZX characters given lesser emphasis.

"Your pants are on fire."

Actually, seems more like

Main focus: X, Rock, Trigger
Secondary Focus: Zero
last focus: ZX cast

After all, Zero has a fanbase almost as big as PB's sexcelent ego. (ALMOST as big)

I say so mainly because while he is in the background and as such is smaller, he is given a near full body shot.
