Mega Man X 20th Anniversary Tribute Art From Iwamoto
In commemoration of Mega Man X's 20th anniversary, Rockman X manga artist Yoshihiro Iwamoto whipped up this rather dashing display of X and Zero. Though his X adaption has long ended, Iwamoto acts as an affiliate to the franchise as a whole, producing content for art books, Rockman Xover, and even one or two D-Arts figures.
Oh, but this isn't the only tribute piece. Because the drinking age in Japan is 20, Iwamoto was compelled to illustrate X's very first sip of bourbon (Vile's personal drink of choice). You can see this amusing comic after the jump...
Vile: "Here's your nightcap: bourbon!"
Zero: "That's because you tried to drink it all at once."
