Impressive CG Mega Man Fan Art (Updated)



Above, Professional digital artist David Espinoza (who worked on games like Knights of the Old Republic 2 and Neverwinter Nights 2) paid tribute to the cast of Mega Man 2 by immortalizing them in Hollywood-quality CG.  They just scream animated film, right? Love the art direction, but the lighting is just the icing on the cake. Excellent work! (Update: added Mega Man's render)

See more of David's art and designs at his official site here. Thanks for the tip, Shayne.

  2. The reflection's pretty weird.. They're surrounded by black, while there are buildings in the reflection. Was weird to me, metalman's legs appear a bit short, but I suppose it's nice overall.

  3. Oh, yeah...! It should be in a CG movie instead a live action movies!

    Digital Wonders did a good job on CG of Bubbleman, Heatman, Flashnman, and Metalman! They are so mega-awesome!

    Lol, my thoughts exactly. They do look a lot like figures. Maybe Imagi or some other CGI movie studio should take notice! These are awesome and pretty much how I would imagine them looking like in a cgi film. Eddie Lebron should take it up a step like these if he makes a MegaMan 2 based film. :D

  5. Hmmm, they just don't feel right. Their shape and faces look very cartoony but the material too realistic for that look. It's like a clash of two different styles. They'd look better if their faces were less cartoony or if the materials didn't have all those reflections and bumps.

    my gf and friend work at Dreamworks Animation. Might have to have them mention something... :D

    if the artist is reading these, and you are close to Chatsworth, you should take them to SOTA TOYS, I know they have a 3D scanner! Make some awesome Evil Robot mini statues!

  11. "Impressive", but not that much. I see it as reworked chars, there are tons of differences. Sounds similar to those Hyadain videos.

  17. I hate the way MegaMan came out. His face is wonky and his hips are...huge. Like womanly. And that's not good. I understand he was trying to emphasize the robot-ish hip joints but...yeesh.
    The other Robot Masters came out extremely well though. Good lighting, good expressions. They almost look like action figures.
