With as diverse a fandom as the Mega Man community has garnered, there's been all sorts of fan artwork in just as diverse of styles. But I think this is by far the grittiest Mega Man I've ever seen. This comes from artist David Szilagyi, who wanted to give his own spin on the Blue Bomber.
I can believe this take probably doesn't appeal to everyone, but I like its theme. After all, Mega Man has taken some pretty heavy blows in recent years. This artwork depicts a Mega Man who is certainly down, but not about to bow out. Just like us, right??
Remember kids, the surgeon general advises against smoking due to adverse health effects.
Thanks very much for the creative piece, David!
