When UDON announced the Mega Man Tribute book, every Mega Man fan artist had a stroke. Right there on the spot. Once medics were called and the artists revived, thousands got to work on their entries. UDON had over 3000 entries. Sadly, being a 300 page book, not everyone got a chance to get in. I didn’t envy UDON’s job, sorting through all those entries. The entries they picked are going to look awesome once the book comes out. Congratulations once again to all you who got in!
But what of the others?
If you frequent deviantART and its Mega Man clubs, no doubt you’ve seen some of the amazing artwork that didn’t get picked.
That’s where deviantART user Soul-Rokkuman comes in. She has decided to collect all the non-winning entries and display them for all of us to enjoy. It’s still undecided whether the entries are going to be displayed in a gallery or maybe a downloadable free e-book, or other means. However, she’s sending out the call to everyone interested.
If you entered UDON’s tribute contest or know someone who did, and they didn’t get in, please send the entry her way! Spread the word so we can enjoy all the work that these artists put forth!
