One of my favorite parts of the show was easily the Archie panel where it was finally revealed that Megaman will be published sometime next spring! Hooray! I can finally talk about it!
Last March during the Staple! convention in Austin I got a ring from Sonic Editor Paul Kaminski asking me to draw up some designs for Archie’s pitch to Capcom. Unfortunately I was in Austin and by the time I returned and got to my drawing table I had all of 12 hours to throw something together without ever having drawn any of the characters before. While I’m pretty darn happy with my Protoman and Dr. Wily I’ll be the first to say my Megaman needs some refining. Luckily, while I get my Megaman in shape, the very talented Patrick Spaziante will be kicking the series into gear, handling the cover and art chores for awhile! I’m not sure if it’s going to be a rotating arc thing or if I’ll only fill in every now and then. Regardless, I get to draw some Megaman and I can’t wait!
I’ll do my best to post some Megamans as soon as I feel they’re up to the Protoman and Doc Wily standards. It’s been awhile since I buckled down and drew any as the project has been up in the air since I worked on everything in March. Time to get to it!
