Maverick Hunter character designer releases X concept art

It's not the worst thing in the world

It's been a while, my little chickadees! I've been out for a few days putting my nose to the grindstone, so you haven't been blessed by my sparkling presence. I therefore apologize if you've already seen the above artwork, but I simply had to say my piece.

You no doubt remember Maverick Hunter, the Mega Man X FPS that was to be developed by the former Retro Studios staffers at Armature Studio but was canceled before it got the greenlight? Of course you do! Who could forget? That new look for X was... something else.

Earlier last week, project artist Adi Granov released the concept design upon which the new X was modeled. Looking at the original art before it was run through the polygon filter... I don't hate it. It looks absolutely nothing like X and strays wildly from the Japanese tokusatsu superhero design of past Mega Man incarnations, but as a completely unrelated character, it's not that bad. Some have even remarked that it looks a lot like the main dude from PlatinumGames' Vanquish -- whether that's a good thing is up to you.
