A Call to Artists for Worldwide Mega Man Homage

Do you like Mega Man? Do you draw good? Then you're eligible for to contribute to a Mega Man fan endeavor of global proportions! However, time is very much against you, so if you're interested, read carefully and act quickly. Some people, particularly the Japanese, observe June 9th as Rockman Day (since the characters for 6 and 9 combine as rokku - see here). Fans around the world, including our own eye on Rockman Online, Amunshen, are organizing a character collage made by you the fans, with each person contributing at least one character.

However, there are very particular guidelines you must follow. First you must apply for a character not already taken (there is a list in the above link), by sending a tweet to @argent_fox01 with your character of choice. You can choose more than one character as long as they're not taken, as well as other bosses and minor enemies. If it's in the Mega Man universe, it's good.

What's more, the deadline is the minute before midnight on June 8th, Japan time. This means, if you live in America, you have until June 8th, 10:59 AM on the east coast, 7:59 AM on the west. In other words, you have about three days to submit your completed work, so you probably shouldn't bite off more than you can chew!

Be sure to check the main project page thoroughly for other requirements as well, such as the image format and size. When it's all taken care of, you can mail your entry to zero6428@gmail.com.

I know this is a bit short notice and technical, but all the same I encourage everyone to make a strong effort and apply. It is of the utmost importance always to show our love for Mega Man in these times. Don't hold back! Thank you!

Update: If you don't want to use Twitter to apply, Amunshen has agreed to accept applications made in the comments for this post as well. Just mark them accordingly. Twitter is still the preferred way to apply, though, and assures your application will be registered the quickest.
