    Admit it, now you too kinda' wish Nintendo would make this into one of Megaman's taunts. =^p


    (None yet...)

    Questions that will inevitably be asked eventually:

    Q: Why did you make this / what the heck were you thinking?
    A: When I first heard that the "Mega Upper" attack was going to be in Smash Bros., I got super excited! I absolutely LOVE using that move in Power Fighters! ^~^ ♥ The video I saw it announced in said the move originated from Marvel vs. Capcom, so then I thought, "if there's one other thing I really like about Megaman in MvC, it's his taunt," which led me to, "wouldn't it be awesome if Nintendo used that taunt, too?" I figured they probably wouldn't though, and if I wanted to see him do that with his Smash Bros. design, I'd have to animate it myself. And... Well... I decided I really wanted to see it!!! X^D

    Q: Do you realize this taunt isn't actually in SSB?
    A: Of course it isn't, that was kinda' the point. I wish it was! ^‿^ I would SOOO use it! =^p

    Q: *[insert nitpick about his appearance and/or armor details here]*
    A: Notice the date I posted this? That's several months before the game was even released! Detailed reference pictures available to the public were in kind of short supply at the time. I had to make do with what I had, which was trailers and promo materials. -_-'
    Nowadays when I draw his Smash armor, I typically use my Amiibo for reference.

    Q: How did you make this?
    A: I sketched out 3 drawings with pencil and paper, scanned them, "inked" and colored them on my computer, then edited those 3 "keyframes" to make 16 different individual frames.

    Q: How long did it take you?
    A: About a week, working diligently, only taking breaks to eat and sleep. Man, I'm slow! T^T

    Q: What software did you use?
    A: Drawn in Macromedia Fireworks 8, sound and bg added in Macromedia Flash MX 8. Sound recorded with Audacity.

    Q: Did you use a pen/graphics tablet?
    A: Yes, a Wacom Intuos 4.

    Q: Where did you get that Smash Bros. logo?
    A: I made it from scratch with Fireworks.

    Q: Is that your voice?
    A: No. It's an actual recording from Marvel vs. Capcom.

    Q: Where did you get that sound file?
    A: I recorded it from a PlayStation 2 using a TV with a headphone jack on it, an auxiliary audio cable, my computer's line-in port, and Audacity.

    Q: How did you get it without background music?
    A: I turned off the music through the in-game options. ;^)

    Q: Is there an easier way I can get that audio clip?
    A: https://www.sounds-resource......

    Q: Why doesn't he have any shading?
    A: It took me a WEEK as it is!!! I honestly considered not even drawing it in color. X^b

    Q: Do you realize your drawing bends at the waist farther than the Marvel vs. Capcom sprite?
    A: Yes.

    Q: Why does he bend over so far?
    A: I dunno, it just kinda' turned out that way. =^/

    Q: Why would he stick out his tongue?
    A: Because it's funny! =^p

    Q: What did I just watch?
    A: I dunno. YOU'RE the one goin' around clicking on 4-second videos. ¬‿¬ Show less

  • My Keyboard Performances Play all

    Music (mostly from videogames) I played on my PSR-290 YAMAHA keyboard,
    most of them taking advantage of features such as dual (layer) and split voices.
    I learn by ear, play from memory, and do not have the ability to write musical notation with any kind of legibility, so please do not ask for sheet music. Thank you.

    Mostly Megaman. =^p Game sprites are fun to play with! ^‿^
    Most of these sprite sheets came from The Spriter's Resource (http://www.spriters-resource.com/) or Sprites INC (http://www.sprites-inc.co.uk/files/Classic/). I use Macromedia Fireworks 8 for cropping/editing, and Macromedia Flash MX 8 for animating.

  • My Favorite Videogame Music Play all

    My "It's all about the music" playlist got too dang big, so I moved all the videogame "OST" tracks to a separate playlist. =^p
    If anyone tells you that videogame music is just noise, they've obviously never heard these! ^~^
    In fact, they're probably the kind of people who are used to stock sound effects and fail to realize that videogames don't actually sound like the Atari 2600 anymore: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IzI1RBdK2_g

    Some people don't like the "dated" or "synthetic" sound of certain game music. =^/ Can't say I understand such closed-mindedness, but I put these tunes in a separate playlist anyway.
    Many of these are probably better appreciated if you grew up listening to them. ;^)
