So, this is something I’ve been doing for a while. The original project was to draw 128 video game characters with a limited palette, with a focus on variety of games represented and variety of characters. Not only was this way too ambitious for my own good, but also enthusiasm for the project had died down for me as I realized that the task would require me to pick and draw characters that I have no investment on, from games I also don’t really know or care much about, so instead, once per week, I’ll dump five or six characters I drew for this personal project. I’ll be posting them mostly on chronological order of when I drew them, so even though I revised most of them to look much better, please excuse the dirtiness of some of these!
Not much to say here about this first part. Megaman is based mainly on his original NES/Famicom appearences, but it has hints of other incarnations’ designs if you take a close look.
what she means:
when maya first met apollo in spirit of justice she said phoenix described him as "unreliable." at first i thought she might mean when apollo quit the agency during clay's murder trial, but then Phoenix clarified that he said that two years ago, aka during the events of aa4. apollo won all of his trials during aa4 with practically no assistance or advice from Phoenix (aside from the last case when Phoenix basically hijacks the game from him). in what way was apollo's court performance during that game "unreliable"? maybe not in his first trial against kristoph, which was his literal first time taking lead on a court case and couldn't possibly have expected his mentor to turn out to be a psychopathic killer, apollo is clearly able to hold his own in court while actually knowing what he's talking about instead of bluffing. why would phoenix call apollo "unreliable" when he literally acts as the only source of income for the WAA besides Trucy's magic shows, which don't appear to become popularized until at least a year later? apollo shows up to his trials as prepared as the cases allow, how is he "unreliable"? how dare phoenix wright, disgraced defense attorney who has reduced his life to underground gambling and guzzling "grape juice", call apollo justice, a brand new attorney who started his solo career one year younger than phoenix, "unreliable"
A few people asked how I did the kinetic lines of my last Megaman sketch - I know this is not too long, but here’s a short vid my girlfriend recorded while I was working, it may give you a quick idea of how I did it:)
