Mega Man inspired Bombers

I was driving around and thought this might be a cool thing to do. Turns out, I might have been correct. I'm in need of a 9th spot and some names to place under the ones I don't have. Gerstmann's last name just fucking works so done. Tricky. . . I guess could also just be Trick but meh.

For the most part, the ones I've got done are pretty done. I can still fix up Patrick's hair a bit along with Ryan's and I'm sure when I take another look at this later, I'll be able to see a lotta other stuff that needs fixin but for now. May also change Press Start to Press Bomb. Dunno.

While it's not finished yet, I get the feeling I'm gonna really like how this one finishes out. Maybe I'll try to see if I can get a shirt made. This whole thing came out of thinking about how much I like my Members only GB shirt w/the roller coaster on the back. Anyway, please comment and criticize away.

Who's that next to Tricky?

Drew

This kicks total ass. Dave would probably fill that last spot out nicely (although Karen would be a great surprise play).

Snide is on the top right -_-;; Maybe I should tweak him to get a little more likeness. The world could always use more fungeneering.

Comicvine's G-Man has the name, he could fit.

Drew

Then he should be Drew Manlon. Also, the center square should be the Bomb logo. You can even make its eyes move!

I would've said that Sinde was Alex.

Posted by JackG100

Great concept, and it looks awesome. Patman!

Lucha Deer-man? As last guy?

Posted by SlightConfuse

Who is the tip left looks like gohan

Posted by S0ndor

Dave Snider must be the 9th. Perhaps as Hardcore Man.

Posted by Toxeia

No love for Alex, ever =(

Posted by Video_Game_King

Is it messed up that I can identify a few of the Mega Man bosses you used as bases?

Like this fellow:

I thought that was Alex (Navarro Man would work). The last one should definitely be Dave, who should be named "Snide Man". Brad should be "Shoe Man".

You did this while driving? That doesn't seem safe at all.

(great job!)

Alex is totally in the top right corner.

Aye yo this thing ain't shit without Karen snider

Dude said that was Dave, but yeah, it totally looks like Alex.

Posted by Spoonman671

What I've learned from this thread is that Alex and Dave have actually been the same dude all along.  That's the real reason Alex works from the east coast--that way they never have to be in the same room at the same time.

Posted by BraveToaster

That's awesome, you're awesome.

Posted by MooseyMcMan

Where's Dave? He should be there too. Or is that Dave in the upper right? I thought it was Alex at first, but now I'm not sure.

Otherwise, fine work!

Posted by Landon

@Fobwashed: You need to put Luchadeer in the last corner.

I assumed it was Alex....

Good illustrations regardless. They all look like the people that I thought they are. Except Drew has a beard... isn't he generally clean shaven? Or I guess he has stubble maybe.

Posted by Zacagawea

Drew's hair should be more blonde

Edited by Brackynews

: Silly names 'n stuff:

  • Duder Man
  • Shoe Manker
  • Tas Mania
  • Tricast Man
  • Beast (Coast) Man

+1 for Alex. Luchadeer is the final boss. He can't be on the stage select.

If this can go on a light blue shirt, I'm in!

Posted by kindgineer

That is really cool.

Posted by Grillbar

this is not your best work alex looks like dave or is it dave that looks like alex.

having said this, its still freaking awesome.

Edited by Toxeia

So uhh... Gemini Man had the ability to split in two. You could easily take advantage of Alex and Dave's likenesses and roll with something like that. I guess at least then Alex gets some sort of honorable mention in this thing.

Posted by slowbird

Yeah, I'm totally seeing Alex in that Dave sprite.

I know people have said they look alike before, but I didn't realize how much the effect would be magnified when converting their likenesses to sprite form.

Yeah, same here.

Posted by Gravier251

oh those are good. As for names the only silly thing that popped to mind was something like Ryman Davis, or just Ryman >.< hehe

One more vote for "Shoe Man" :)

Ryan should be "Virtua Man" in homage to his XBL Gamer Tag.

Vinny should maybe be "Vind Man"..? (Like "Wind Man" from MM6) A bit weak maybe. Or "Max Man" for being the best dad ever :)

Also, GREAT WORK, love it!

@Spoonman671 said:

This just about sums it up. Haha

Since the old "Dave" I made looked much more like Alex, I went ahead and just made the transition complete by adding his goatee. Oh, and swapping the direction of his parted hair. Added a rough Dave and Blondified Drew. I'll prolly mess with the colors a bit more and do some final edits once I get back from some delicious KBBQ.

Thanks for lookin' and helpin out.

Now it's NEON

Snide > Luchadeer. Maybe I'll throw it in the center. We'll see.

The reference I used had him w/the beard and I sorta dug it. I could always take it off.

Shoe Manker sounds aiight. I get the Tas Mania but that might be stretching it a bit -_-;; I'm not sure I get the references for Duder, Tricast and Beast (aside from him being on the East Coast).

Any more naming suggestions?

So I'm not the only one that saw Crash/Clash Man in Brad.

@Dalai:

What of the Bubble Man in Jeff?

Posted by StarvingGamer

Ry Man Davis
Endurance Stallion
E-Mail Man
Rock Mand
Snider-Man

I feel pretty good about most of those.

Well I know how to kill him and Flash Man/Drew.

With sharp objects.

@Dalai:

But what of Vinny?

I don't know, but what of Patrick?

Edited by Brackynews

@Fobwashed: No doubt they're a stretch. They were all just first to my mind. :)

The Tricaster is what Vinny amazes people with during livestreams. Duder is the original Daveism, it "belongs" to him. Beast Coast is a Bombcast meme when Alex appears.

Oh god dammit... Dave should be Top Man. Because there's no Andy -- unless you want to do a Vintage Whiskey version -- otherwise Hardcore Man as a close second.

Of some other suggested names, E-Mail Man and Virtua Man have my vote. Recognisable.

Posted by Humanity

I think it looks awesome. Especially Ryan Jeff and Alex are recognizable right away!

Posted by Fobwashed

Still don't have a name I like for Ryan. Any other suggestions or better ideas for anyone already named? Tricast Man is a bit long -_-;;

Edited by Ravenlight

@Fobwashed:

Everything about your GB/MM crossover is amazing. I especially love the pixelated GB logo.

EDIT: I think Luchadeer or Shaq would fill the ninth spot nicely. Nevermind, you've got that covered. Make Ryan's portrait say RY/AN

Posted by BoG

I thoroughly enjoy this. Well done.

I have the most uncreative of names for Ryan: Ry Man.

Posted by punkxblaze

Tasman for Ryan. Either that, or Ryman as everyone is saying. Wait wait wait. CAST MAN. Get it, cause he's the host of the bombcast.

Posted by Fattony12000

Narc Man

Posted by Fobwashed

Welps, that's about it. Apart from some tuning here and there, unless better names come up, this might be it =P Enjoy -_-;;
