Winning designs and complementary judge commentary after the jump!
First place design: Laura
Comments from Capcom:
Kevin (creative services designer/artist): The take on the characters is fun and, let’s face it, extremely cute. Good design and it would catch my attention on the shelf because it is out of the ordinary for Mega Man.
jgonzo: Beautiful illustration. Tha art is gorgeous and whimsical at the same time. I'd love to get a poster of this!
Ito-san (Mega Man 10 Assistant Producer): I was amazed by this artist because she created this unique art style and combined it with Mega Man characters. Just looking at the image soothes me. And even Doctor Wily looks nicer than usual ;) Thank you for showing me a new art style for Mega Man!
First place runner up: P-RO
jgonzo: I love the design and use of colors in this piece! It's a lot more complex than you think the first time you look at it and it looks like something we'd do for a collector's edition of the game. Well done!!
Ito-san: I’ll never forget the feelings I got when I saw this image for the first time. At first it looked like Mega Man was lying down in a field but upon closer inspection those are actually old Mega Man icons and characters. This attention to detail gives me a good idea about how passionate this fan really is. Thank you very much!
Second place runner up: Cessa
jgonzo: This is adorable. This kind of art makes me incredible nostalgic and the color usage is just amazing!
Ito-san: Roll is in pain with roboenza and Mega Man and Proto Man are trying to fight against all the bosses. This is a very dramatic piece of art! This single piece of art really explains the story of Mega Man 10 very well. I can tell that this artist plays Mega Man 10 a lot! Thank you!
