Get Your Characters In Rockman Gigamix

Hitoshi Ariga is looking to adapt fan-made robot designs to use as "extras" for future volumes of the Rockman Gigamix comic. As such, he's created a special Oekaki board where by fans can draw entries or upload existing designs for Ariga to review.

There are a few things to keep in mind before submitting your creation: these characters will end up being destroyed in some manner, and thus should not be overly complex, for their appearance in the comic will be a short one at best (one or two panels).

For the uninitiated, Oekaki boards are web browser based drawing programs. These plenty of them throughout the Mega Man community, the ones I'm for familiar with are  The Mega Man Network and Rockman Perfect Memories. 

Ariga's Oekaki (located here) requires you to enter in your name, a title and description of your creation. Of course, everything is in Japanese, so go at this at your own least, until some generous soul provides a handy English tutorial.

Feel like participating? Draw and send your entry here.

  1. Ha, that's awesome. Wish I had the time to take a crack at this.
    What's more I can't read the Japanese instructions, so... :C
    Best of luck to those who do enter.

    Just out of curiosity, what's the example guy's name?

  2. Example guy is called Crow Man.

  3. Oh nice, Andrew Dickman drew a few of his! I hope of them win; I love his work. I always thought his Mailman.EXE should have won the EXE contest he entered.

  4. actually, he's name is Clawman

  5. I know this is an old post, but doesn't Claw Man look strangly like Blade Man? ._.
