I'm not much of an artist, but when I saw this month's Artists Wanted, I knew I had to participate. When I was younger, I used to edit sprites for fun. Grab some game sprites, edit them together, recolor, and make other changes as needed. I always enjoyed it. I still find it very relaxing to edit pixel by pixel (though, this marks only the second time I have edited sprites in probably the last decade).

So, when I saw that the Artists Wanted was to do a self portrait in any game's style, I knew I had to pick Mega Man. Not only am I a huge fan of Mega Man, but I also used a lot of the Mega Man sprites as a base when making my custom sprites. So this is not only a shout-out of my love of Mega Man, but to my own past.



I did this completely in MS Paint, which is how I used to make custom sprites and is the software I am most comfortable with. I took the base sprite, which was the Get Weapon from Mega Man 7 and went to town editing the face. Adding glasses, hair sticking out from the helmet and fixing the size of the eyes. The rest was just turning the suit into a shirt and jeans combo. The background is the boss select screen from Mega Man 2 as is the lettering.

Here is the original sprite that served as the base:
