A rough color concept for some Protomen
fan art. The Protomen are an absolutely amazing band that has conceived a rock opera album that gives a beautiful twist to the Mega Man universe. Its currently in its second act (second album). You can buy it on iTunes or check it out on their site. Which you should be doing right now...
I got to see these guys in concert when I was in Chicago a couple years ago. It was at this beautiful former church with a huge neon cross (wasn't working :C). I gave them a couple of quick scribbles but have wanted to do some proper art to the band for some time now... If you ever get a chance to be near one of their live shows DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND SEE IT. I'll stop rambling now...
[Edit no.4]: Added more details to the clothing.
[Edit no.3]: More refinements on the background... I was rather ashamed of it after I got some praise in a comment from =InnoTenshi
. I'm going to submit this to the club Saviors of Man, and hopefully the subsequent feedback will encourage me to actually finish this.
[Edit no.2]: I realized I hadn't updated the now-blue arm cannon. Yes, that is Mega Man's arm cannon. I'll let you speculate as to how Protoman obtained it. Still a work in progress that I've been neglecting, but what else is new.
[Edit]: More tweaks done during tonight's livestream. Many thanks to
for the patience and constructive criticisms. Protoman is almost complete... Then I have to tackle that darned cityscape.
