Fans across the globe united under the initiative to have their art featured in Udon's upcoming Mega Man Tribute. Artists both young and old scurried to produce a piece that properly displayed their heart and passion for the series; the end result being some truly amazing work. Unfortunately, not all submissions could make the cut. This was not necessarily due to the quality of the product, but more so to the fact that Tribute can hold only so many entries. Regardless, for those who've been turned down, you need not fret, a project is brewing to give your piece the audience it deserves.
A fan by the name of Soul-Rokkuman has kicked off an initiative to collect ALL rejected Mega Man Tribute entries into a digital fan-book. Dubbed the "Art Buster Fan Book Project", the effort aims to grant acknowledgment to artists and their respective entries that weren't published in Mega Man Tribute. Regardless of artistic ability or skill level, everyone who was passionate enough to attempt to get into Mega Man Tribute deserves to have their work featured and shared. This fact, alone, is the driving force behind Art Buster.
Artists interested in contributing their rejected entries can learn more about the project at Soul-Rokkuman's DeviantArt page here. Submission will be acceptable for at least another month. Afterwards, compilation will begin and the file will be distributed freely. We'll have more information the book's release date and other details in the near future.
I applaud Soul-Rokkuman and contributor Alyssa for their efforts in getting this project off the ground. It's definitely something I will stand by, and I hope you will too.
