    what did centaurman do? what was his power, did he shoot things from this hands or just charge at megaman?

    Here is my Sketchbook. Please have a look if you have time. Thanks.

    @ Pixeltuner: Yeah it might've been fun too to select the more famous characters, but we deliberately picked the more obscure characters so you wouldn't get too influenced by all the redesigns already going around on the internet We even wanted to make our own 8bit characters for you to redesign. I'm excited to see what kind of cool designs people can come up with with only these simple characters to go on

    @UCT: In Mega Man 6 he's equipped with an arm cannon on his right arm whose shot spreads on impact, and his Centaur Flash has space distortion abilities, allowing him to temporarily halt time.

    ! But, you can also think of your own attacks, you dont have to be true to his original attacks.

    Well. here's my first wip for the Black Mage. Both Orko and the FF versions were my absolute fave iconic characters when I was a little girl, so I'm obligued to do it XD

    Remember how cute they were those black mages, with their little daggers...? 8D

    And now, some comments:
    Sketchibo: That's one awesome sketch O__o Can't wait to see it finished!
    Amberthyst: It' s looking good! But I have the feeling that the frame is cutting the figure too much. Maybe trying not to cut out the wings and the bow, and showing a bit more of the tail...
    Zepheenia: Way to go, you splash woman is looking great! Love that robotic tail

    Yeah I get the reasons behind them, but the fact that they're secondary characters from more obscure games doesn't always make them really iconic or even really good designs, so it will be harder to pick out certain design traits and translate them to the modern generation. But, that's the challenge of course

    Great topic i was thinking to go for Barry but then i remembered that is not originally from a 8bit game but from a psx1 game and after the remake of resident evil one for gamecube, there a thousands detailed pictures of him on the net so not much fun.so i will probably go with Celicia.

    Same here. I was thinking about doing Barry as well, but it would just be an alternate costume at most lest it be a completely different character face-wise.

    Thinking about doing Black mage, but we'll see how my wacom will treat me. Might end up sitting this one out. :/

    So my guess is that we're not redesigning them, but just drawing them in our style?

    Neat topic! I decided on Splash Woman. I want to keep the roundness in her design. I don't like her helmet though so I made it more tentacle-y/cleopatra-y.

    Feel free to redesign! Make the character your own, not just by style.

    I went for Yama, because I thought the idae of the game was cool. Trying to give her a bit more personality, as the 8bit version is just a nekkid lady with a goat's head and legs.

    So far I'm getting...cute. This could be a problem. Perhaps just a slight re-working...

    Here's my first WIP, I'm going with Splash Woman. I want to keep it as curvy and woman-ish (pin-up style) as I can, I may refine the pose some more.

    ArtbyManon - I agree, Splash Woman may be one of the worst named characters ever haha. I really like the feel of your piece so far, she definitely seems like she'd be a major boss of a game - nice and powerful!
    Elissimo - I love that helmet design, it's feminine and yet actually looks like it would protect her haha.
    Carnifex - so, so awesome. I can't wait to see the details fleshed out more!

    Pixeltuner very good work with your Celicia. Maybe she needs to be a little more muscled? Just a point.
    Zepheenia your lineart is just awesome! I cant wait to see it coloured

    Well I'm going to do some Black Mages. I guess I'll upload the WIP tomorrow ^^

    Hello all! Everything is looking great - I'll comment in more depth later.

    I wasn't able to finish last week, so here I am again for sure.
    Guess who?

    Can only comment on a few cause I start classes again in the morning! I'll try to get to more tomorrow.

    Kazerneal – For a more dynamic pose, you may want to bend her body into more dramatic angles. It will give your composition movement and energy!
    this is more dynamic than this

    Pixeltuner – beautiful colors. She feels so solid.

    Carnifex – The design work is admirable! A little anatomy thing is that his right (the back) arm doesn’t appear to be connected to the torso because it separates at the armpit too far up. Holy cow on detail. Keep up the good work!

    Hemlock_key – Things that make what you have adorable is the dot mouth, big eyes and round hands. Also, things with beefed out staffs tent to look badass even if they are cute!

    Suneater – Such an interesting face. I really enjoy the direction that you are taking.

    UCT – Yeah! Go Centaurman! Haha. After looking through your sketchbook I am excited to see the finished product.

    Lady Chestnut – This whole concept is rockin. I want to compliment on so many parts of this. Great staff and torso! Are the sleeve ends supposed to be different?

    Zepheenia – Such great line work – soo clean! Everything looks fleshed out save for the staff with is 2D at the bottom. I’m assuming that color will change that! Can’t wait!

    Elissimo - LOVE the updated pose! I really wanted to have her pointing the trident at the viewer in mine but couldn't make the perspective work haha! I love this new one, can't wait to see more of it!

    Axazel - loving your design, I take my hat off to absolutely anyone that can make a horse's anatomy work. Look forward to more!

    One quick question! In the Black Mage design... can I make both the male and female versions? In the same picture, of course (I say it because if I were to redesign it for a modern remake, they would...well, look quite different XD And since you could choose the gender in a few FFs...)
