My winning entry for UDON's Mega Man Tribute book. This particular picture is what I consider my first legitimately 'finished' work ever. When this contest was announced, there was no way I could pass it up. I had originally tried to avoid drawing anything X7 related, just because I thought it would be too predictable for me, but I ended up feeling way more invested in it than I would have if I had perhaps illustrated characters somewhat less poignant to me.
Below is my process if you're curious!
