I made a title card for Blue Bombin'

I actually made this a little over a year ago and never posted it here, but with the return of Blue Bombin' today I figured now's as good a time as any.

So, without further ado, here it is.

I also made a "pixelated" version, but I'm not quite as happy with it.

[Edit] Holy crap! It looks like it's official now. Not only did they use it for the promotional spots for today's stream (Sept. 21, 2018 Mega Man 6 - Part 02), but it's now the series art on the video pages (formerly a stock image of Mega Man)!

That is sleek, classy, and really adds the final touch of polish to the Blue Bombin' series. Very skillfully done, sir.

Edit: I will say the cleaner one is better than the pixelated one. The differing angles make the jagged edges look a bit rough and inconsistent in the latter.

I normally like pixelated stuff over smooth edges when it comes to retro artwork like this, but the smooth one looks very, very nice. It's crisp.

Great work!

@brunothethird: @the_nubster: Thanks!

And yeah, I kind of had to fake the pixelization. Like I said, I'm not as happy with it; I'm not a pixel artist, though I wish I were.
