No idea if anyone's sprited the new Maga Man shown in the upcoming Smash Bros. yet but decided to give him a shot myself. Not my usual spriting style, just trying something new. What felt natural for the sprite more than anything.
Photoshop (CS2, I think..) for everything. Well, short of outlining much bigger sprites like the Galactus and Cloverfield sprites. For those I used MSPaint because of the line bending tool. Unfortunately, I don't think Photoshop has this tool.
Unfortunately, I don't think this really means new things for Mega Man. His addition in the game was Nintendo's doing, not Capcom's. They're probably still gonna keep treating Rock horribly. Luckily, this should hold over Mega Man fans for a long time to come.
