ZX Remix - Model X (Aile) by robertoakes
ZX Remix - Model X (Aile)
The outline for Aile was mostly unchanged from the sketch, except for some minor details. The Biometal however went through an overhaul during inking. Like the armor, I tried to make it more streamlined. The face wound up looking a bit like a stylized skull, but it wasn't intentional.

Português:

O traço da Aile não ficou muito diferente do rascunho, exceto por alguns pequenos detalhes. O Biometal, no entanto, passou por várias mudanças na arte-final. Como a armadura, tentei deixá-lo mais aerodinâmico. A face acabou parecendo um pouco com uma caveira estilizada, mas não foi a intenção.

ZX Remix - Model X (Vent) by robertoakes
ZX Remix - Model X (Vent)
I originally sketched Vent and Aile together, but decided to split the drawing in two for the colored version.

This half went through a heap of polishing before I even threw the flat colors in (and after!). After finishing Model ZX, I looked up tutorials and changed the shading method. The new method is much faster and way more convenient than what I did before, so I'll definitely stick with it for the time being. I took several cues from official art for the shading, but I ended up straying from it in some respects, particularly the highlights.

The hairstyles are the next major change, especially Vent's; my intention was to give their hair a natural, but messy look to better reflect their personalities. I'm quite happy with how they turned out.

Português:

Eu desenhei Vent e Aile juntos, mas resolvi dividir o desenho em dois para a versão colorida.

Esta metade passou por muitas correções antes mesmo de jogar as cores nela (e depois!). Depois de terminar o desenho do Model ZX, eu pesquisei tutoriais e mudei o método de sombreamento. O novo método é bem mais rápido e conveniente do que o anterior, portanto eu vou definitivamente mantê-lo por enquanto. Eu me baseei bastante no estilo oficial, mas acabei me distanciando em alguns detalhes, como as luzes.

Os cortes de cabelo são a próxima grande mudança, especialmente o de Vent: minha intenção era dar ao cabelo deles um aspecto natural, mas rebelde para refletir melhor suas personalidades. Gostei bastante de como ficou.

ZX Remix - Model ZX by robertoakes
ZX Remix - Model ZX
Hi folks, it's been a while.

I've been trying to fight my way out of a funk by putting years of graphic design education to practice. I'm a big fan of the Mega Man ZX series, and thought I'd express that for once. At first, this was only supposed to be a slightly more detailed version of the official design, but I was carried away as I sketched the lines and... the result speaks for itself. At some point, I was inspired by Hitoshi Ariga's response to a query from years ago: www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/bl…

I particularly like how the Tron lines turned out, except for the arms; I wish I could think of a more interesting pattern for those. Those lines - which seemingly blend circuitry and blood vessels - actually appear briefly during transformation sequences, but only some scant pieces of official art actually show it: www.therockmanexezone.com/gall…

I still push pixels from time to time and I may submit some of my recent material later on, but I think I'd like to focus on expanding my digital art skills for now. We'll see where my creative whims will take me. For now, I hope you enjoy the art.

Português:

Estive tentando me reanimar colocando anos de cursos de design gráfico em prática. Sou grande fã da série Mega Man ZX, e pensei em expressar isso pra variar. Isto era para ser apenas uma versão um pouco mais detalhada da arte oficial, mas eu me empolguei quando desenhava os traços e... os resultados falam por si. Em algum momento, eu fui inspirado pela resposta de Hitoshi Ariga à uma pergunta de anos atrás: www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/bl…

Eu gosto de como as "linhas Tron" saíram, exceto pelos braços: queria pensar em um padrão mais interessante para eles. Essas linhas - que parecem misturar circuitos com vasos sanguíneos - aparecem brevemente durante sequências de transformação, mas isso só pode ser visto em algumas ilustrações oficiais: www.therockmanexezone.com/gall…

Ainda faço arte com pixels de vez em quando e talvez eu divulgue um pouco do material mais recente, mas eu acho que estou a fim de expandir minhas habilidades com arte digital por enquanto. Veremos onde meus impulsos criativos vão me levar. Por enquanto, espero que gostem da arte.

Belated thanks to all the birthday wishes. I wish I could say more, but there is quite a backlog to catch up on and almost all comments were posted years ago...
