Boss Designs: Care To Share?

It's really great that us gaijin have a chance to enter Coro Coro Comic's mysterious boss design contest. That said, are you seizing the opportunity?

I'm happy to announce that I'm partaking in the contest with my very own design. I haven't sketched it out yet, but I'm thinking along the lines of a Maverick by the name of "Jet Angler" themed after one of the creepiest fish in the sea (pictured).

I'll go into more detail later, maybe even post up the finished sketch one day. So, how about you guys? Care to share your designs, ideas, sketches?


  1. good idea, protodude, and no, i have no ideas myself and i cant draw to save my life, i just want the return of sigma (the baldest maverick i know of)

  2. I don't have any really.. I want to partake, but I also don't want to..

    Reasons I would: For the heck of it.
    To get one of my designs in a game.

    Reasons I wouldn't: They will more then likely get the personality wrong..
    There are going to be 10,000+ people participating.
    I don't really have the money to get one, and send it to Japan. (I'm sure that would take $30+ and I only have $0.00.. I'm literally broke.)
    I can make my own game with the designs. (Higher chance of them being put into a game)

    ... I'm thinking the 'No' outweighs the 'Yes'..

  3. I have a crap load of ideas for bosses, but I have don't the time to make several drafts to make something intelligent.(its Called High School Swimming) Maybe this weekend...

    Happy First B-day Protodude's Rockman Corner!!

  4. Wouldn't mind sharing... Once I'm done. Short on ideas.

    So is it really open on the series? You just pick which one you want it for?

    I'd do one, though I don't know if I'll actually partake in the contest. Money-wise.

  5. I have too many ideas to list. >_> They're mostly EXE, but they could easily be adapted to classic series.

    I've never been a fan of the weird names for X bosses and the RnR Boss names aren't so great either. :P _____man is the way I like it. :)

  6. If I could actually draw I would (do stick figures count?) :)

    Angler fish freak me out....when you finish your boss design will you show us?

  7. Woah! Something like that actually exists? That's very creepy :(

    Im looking forward to seeing everyone elses boss designs as well although Im no artist, so I can't really share anything but would love to see what everyone else can come up with.

  8. I did a lot of boss designs on my childhood, even stage designs! You know, a time without level editors or even PCs. I remember of three classic Rockman robots, as "ScrewMan", "DriftMan" and the odd "AtmospheraMan". :)

  9. I wish I can enter but I'm far too lazy and sick to do all these types of things.

    However, If I'm cured for sickness, I might draw a human-ish maverick, just like between Dynamio and Sigma.

    Btw, happy birthday protodude!

  10. I would enter if I was a better drawer, I would draw a Sonic-like boss that moves fast, shoots sonic boom-like waves, and have a barrier. I would call it Sound Barrier.

  11. I don't have the money to invest in drawing programs, nor do I have a scanner -- But I might MSPaint something for fun. I'll try to do something original -- the only Rockman-style things I've drawn up to this point have been re-adaptations of characters.

    I don't know what your policy is with links to other sites, but here's something I MSPainted a year or so ago:

  12. Ill post my sketches later but mine is Noise Man. He'll be rockin.

  13. I have my entry, might scan it later but I'm still thinking of a name. Fang or Talon is what I want to go for though.

  14. I might have a few ideas I could give them, mostly inspired by my work on the MMPC remake project, but how do you send/give them your ideas?

  15. All the details are here but, you better act quickly as it comes to a close on February 13th:
