Rockman X - Max Armour by zephyron Rockman X - Max Armour by zephyron
Tribute to one of my childhood heroes.

Rockman X in his full X3 armour attire, the Max Armour.

This is by far one of my fave armour designs in the entire Rockman X series =D

That aside, yes, I admit to having a poor background sense. Mauybe I shouldn't have added one in x_X
Oh, this was drawn from memory BTW, so I think its more than probable that there'll be mistakes in the pic.

Vary Well Done, I must admidt that X3 was my favourite for the fact the you could play as zero and get his Z-saber (i just think the X6 sprites sucked)

I agree with it being an awesome design...too bad the buster upgrade was more of an inconvenience if anything else imo...
Nice job though

Its a trade-off really.

The Buster hit value total is 6 + 3x4 = 18 buster pellet damage value, outmatched only by Model X and ZX from the DS Megaman ZX series, but the stun/recovery time for the Buster is inconvenient since X is required to stand still while on the ground to fire.

The immobility of the effect is negated while in mid-air though.

Model Z from Megaman ZX pays somewhat of a 'tribute' to this from its Overdrive mode.

Well, I think it's the damage value against the boss that matters more, rather than the total pellet damage.

But still, most buster upgrades shouldn't be trade-offs anyway. ><

(Hmm...I've never thought of using the Overdrive on Z..)

True, but full charging for bosses take too long IMO.

Half charges are usually thed best and most fun attacks IMO, since they don't stun the Maverick bosses and dish out damage quick enough.

I do agree with that, unless if it's something like Blizzard Buffalo. @.@ I usually do rely on half-charges though.

Very nice job on the lighting effects. This is probably my second-favorite armor, next to X4's Force Armor(4 charged shots rather than the Plasma Shot). :D You really outdid yourself nonetheless.

WOwered by the X3 armor.
I'm....uh.......*coughs* younger, so I've never seen anything past X5.
This is REALLY cool, though, and it makes me want to get the game, even though I epic fail at anything Rockman besides BN5 and 6......and even then I can still fail.
I'm like a sorry waste of Rockman's time. (lol)

Looks awesome! RockmanX3 was one of the greatest games of all time!
If there is any game that needs to be remade in any manner, it is Rockman X3!
Good work and keep it up!

Technicalities are no issue here. You win in that aspect. What you might want to know and do more about is the proportions, and that's that... refer to the RMX manga as a reference, they do give you quick hints... ;)

zephyron Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't liek the proportions used in the RMX series (old and new) and the manga, found them to be off especially for the upper thighs, so I decided to follow the normal human anatomy proportion distribution and make the arms and legs thinner much like X8 =)

I wouldn't remember what his Max Armor looks like so I won't say much. :D I love the lighting effects, and the gun (rectangular rather than rounded nozzle). The shading and coloring look a bit cloudy in places, specifically the blue parts of the armor around his limbs.

Overall, it's X, which makes him RAWK.

zephyron Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
The cloudiness is probably caused by the technique I'm using on the pic. Utilizing a lot of unsaturated colours as to make the pic not look too vibrant :)

And yes, X rawks!
