Arching the Androids Part 2, Articles, and Art

The Ascendant Androids’ adventures with Arch of Darkman’s Robot Warriors continues! Can Arch continue to survive the Androids? An even better question – can the Androids survive the madness Arch brings with him?

 

But, wait! There more! Wait, really? Yes, really! Thanks to Tyree_Cooper I’ve revised me old Asian PC article to include more information on Rockman 123 and the Rockman Collection! I have to admit I was disinterested in this when I first happened upon it, dismissing it as a knockoff collection of the NES games and nothing more. But there are some (very) minor changes.

 

Finally, we have some pictures Riajin made a few years ago. Above is the original idea for Cossack’s Creations, before the Comrades reformed. Rich had a notion he’d make a communist-era version of the team complete with sprites, but that never panned out. Raijin made this character sheet based off that abandoned idea. We also now present his character art of the MM6 team – World’s Strongest!

The last, but the prettiest – Raijin brings us Crystalgirl of the Ascendant Androids! I must admit, I’m a sucker for shiny things. Evidently this design was based, not just of his old sprite, but also off the former Crystal’s own artwork for the design she created.

And that brings us to the end of Raijin’s Ascendant Android project. Hope you all enjoyed!

Raijin brings us one of Spark’s old identities – Napalmman! This guy was heavily modelled on the drill sergeant from Full Metal Jacket, a movie I confess I didn’t see in full until too recently.

Starman is next in Raijin Ascendant Androids project. This guy was actually designed by me long after the Business of War was over. For story reasons Star was left out of the remake fest during War, but when the Androids came back the reasons for this no longer made sense. Well, here he is in all his show stealing glory.

The Ascendant Androids continue to file in with Stoneman coming in next. Damn, does Raj know his detail work or what? This version of Stoneman can fashion himself out of whatever stony materials that happen to be at hand.

Ascendant Androids Sound Off!

From January to February Raijin had a burst of artistic inspiration and finished off his (apparently) ages old Ascendant Androids art project that he started with Chargemen many, many years ago. To start things off, here’s Waveman!

Who are the Ascendant Androids? Why they’re the Megaman 5 team remade by General Cutman during the Business of War. Too much? Just consider them nightmarish remakes of the Megaman 5 guys and enjoy.
