Thank you for playing...

This is the first of (what I hope is) an entire series of old school video game characters. As a HUGE gaming nerd, I wanted to pay tribute to a handful of my favorite 16-bit games. So I started with everyone's favorite arm-cannon wielding hero...Mega Man. Originally I wanted to do something in a true 16-bit format, but I ended up going with a more modern look. This illustration is actually based on a Mega Man X action figure. Since I opted out of giving Mega Man a more retro look, I instead applied that to the background. The  actual "Mega Man" was drawn using a program called Sketchbook and the background was done using Photoshop/Illustrator.
