  2. Sorry I haven’t been posting as much lately. I haven’t drawn for fun in a really long time. I’m still working on the next chapter though, and that’s what’s important, right? :)
This is a concept sketch for Recut Terra. I don’t draw dudes with long hair much.

  4. Alien Ramble, notes, and stuff

    …and it is rambly, be forwarned, this post is more about tying up lose ends than perhaps coherency but that happens! Last one then I’m moving on to new content, this is just to give some context behind the comic.

    Never thought I’d be making an origin story for the universe of Recut that didn’t start in a bar, it sorta just happened!

    I always knew I definitely wanted to do something with aliens, but I hadn’t quite nailed down what when I began writing Recut, so I left some strands open-ended, using alien technology to *occasionally* explain the explicable events in Mega Man when mad science falls short. Classic Rockman canon is chock full of aliens, and Ruby-Spears Mega Man really had no set consistencies with it’s universe’s logic…so, aliens? Why not. Who doesn’t love alien robots? :)

    I combined the story lines from Super Adventure Rockman and Rockman 8, with the event of Rockman 8’s first cutscene taking place waaay before the events of the present. Ra Moon/Ra Thor play the part of the nameless evil alien robot who brought evil energy to Earth.

    The crystals that Wily used for shrink rays are not related to Duo or Ra Moon. The chronitons from Future Shock are related to Duo; they are remnants left behind when robots of Duo’s kind travel through space, they use time travel to freeze themselves and slow the decomposition of their parts. Though he’s been around since the beginning of time, physically Duo is not billions of years old. (don’t force me to pin down the exact numbers, but physically he’s around only a few thousand years + the few thousand he was ‘sleeping’ in Earth). He still posses some time travel ability, as evidence with his ‘healing’ ability that he used in part 5 of The Mega Man in the Moon, but his ability to skip years was lost when Ra Thor attacked him. 

    Duo’s race of robots came from the end of time back to the beginning of time to correct the flaws of the universe. Duo and his kind were guardians, not originally sentient, but capable of evolving AI, similar to an advanced android. After nearly dying from decomposition and then spending some time with the Stardroids while he recovered, Duo began to develope sentience, and would go on to become lonely and unsatisfied with his original task of searching the vast universe, especially when life began dying out. Because the Stardroids guarded over our solar system, life on Earth survived through time and the first few humans came about, which was around the same time Ra Moon invaded the solar system (just when the life started to get interesting and able to choose between good and evil).

    Ra Moon’s history goes about like the comic. My biggest influences for Recut’s Ra Moon are ‘Ancient One’ from Lovecraftian mythos and AM from I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream—but his personality/motivation is more like the Joker from The Dark Knight. He’s not a schemer, he’s more of the universe’s biggest dick; he exploits his phenomenal cosmic powers for evil for no other reason than he’s bored, he has no like peers, he’s the biggest bully in the playground, the torment of others amuses him, and no ones stopping him.

    Skipping forward, Duo and Ra Thor head Robot Interpol. Duo has not revealed his alien origins to anyone. He does not feel guilty about this, bottom line is he strongly feels it’s for the best, and if you’d seen any science fiction movie with alien robots you might agree with him. I like to think Ra Thor, being Duo’s opposite/compliment, DOES feel guilty about keeping it a secret from the R.I.P. officers, who he considers friends, and tends to break his word to Duo by casually dropping alien references into conversations. The officers have yet to pick up the meaning. (Ra Thor: “We did a good job bringing in a jewel thief running amok in Eastern Europe, but now we need to concentrate our efforts into the robo-pirates in the Indian Ocean—oh, and by the way, Duo and I are aliens.“ Officers: “lol you’re so weird. So what are should we do about the pirates?”)

    Someone suggested in the last art poll that I draw Terra, and that is a crazy excellent idea dunno why I didn’t think of him or the other Stardroids sooner, I will definitely be drawing most if not all of what was requested, especially Proto Man (Totally was not expecting Proto Man to get so many votes, and for Bass to not get any, but hey, I’m not complaining Proto is the greatest)

     
     
  5. The not-so-inaccurate history of Ra Moon,  possibly the most horrible thing I’ve posted in a long while. Happy Valentines Day!

    ‹ my art ‹ polls

    Since season 1 is done, I’m curious to see what kind of responses I’d get if I opened up one of these art polls to any character from the classic/RS series. You can answer anyway you like, whether it be through write in on the poll, tumblr, disqus, whatever, and you can specify your requests as whatever (alternate outfits, sans helmet, whatever), and I think you can even vote as many times as you want. However, I’m not guaranteeing I’ll necessarily draw them, especially if it’s something I’m not ready to reveal in Recut, but I thought it’d be good to get another art list going. :)

     
     
  6. The first set of images is of 1979 Mikhail Cossack (Age 21, with a failed attempt at retro 70’s glasses) then of 1995 Dr. Cossack (age 37). To the far left is his first wife Светлана (Svetlana, age 21). That is suppose to be a bundle of baby Kalinka in her arms. I really did not want to draw a baby.

    Next, Mikhail Cossack working on Duo and Ra Thor. After drawing this, I  think that Duo might have gotten the better end when Mikhail was forced to redesign much of his exterior from scratch? But Ra Thor is still my favorite to draw. Also, Harry Potter glasses are much easier to draw than 70s aviator style…they also intentionally look reminiscent to a RS Mega Man character…

    Thirdly, felt like drawing a giant plushie~ Kalinka/Kali Cossack is always fun to draw. I should draw he waaaaay more often.

    People have been guessing since Cold Steel that Recut Dr. Light is collaborating with Recut Dr. Cossack to build Brain Bot, so I hope I’m not spoiling it for anyone when I come out and confirm that to be true (to be fair, there have been some pretty leading hints sprinkled in other chapters). I’m certainly not the first to liken the scientist at the end of Brain Bots to Dr. Cossack, however, I really don’t think that scientist is Dr. Cossack. They really don’t look that much alike, and I think even Ruby-Spears would have name dropped someone as important as Dr. Cossack if that was really suppose to be Dr. Cossack (I’m not saying it’s impossible, but I’m not saying it’s likely, either). However, I did use that scientist’s turtle neck as a variation for RS-Cossack’s lab coat getup in lieu of his usual green bean tie, mustard shirt, popped collar combo. By the way, ever noticed that he and Brainy share a color scheme? :)

     
     
  7. I don’t know if anyone browses this page in Safari, but I do and I FINALLY figured out what in my code was causing that annoying gap on top of High Res images and fixed it. It was driving me nuts.

    Haha, I could see that. A little bit of continuity for the bad episodes? This seems like the beginning of a downward spiral in the logic in Wily’s plans, and there wasn’t much to begin with, and I can’t imagine where he’d go next if he continued this trend. XD

    Anonymous asked: I just realized Curse of the Lion Men is like a really stupid Super Adventure Rockman. Less Ra Moon, more lions.

    I guess so, never really thought about it that way. To be honest, I don’t really know what exactly the plot of Super Adventure Rockman is because I’ve never played it. Curse of the Lion Men is sort like a Body Snatchers mixed with an ancient curse plot mixed with were wolves. And robots. And I think that’s just what makes Curse of the Lion Men so bizarre, take a few different generic plotlines from different genres and mash them together with the same sort of insane whim of having carrots, peanut butter, canned tuna water, tapioca, and a blender AND WOW THAT’S GROSS but that’s sorta what you get: something that wasn’t a good idea from the beginning and will likely kill you, but ah, the memories. The ruined childhoods. The WTFs.

    But I’ve always gotten the impression that playing Super Adventure Rockman is fun? Or if not fun, watching the anime cutscenes must be enjoyable, after all, there are no badass robots more cute than Rockman.

    Cute Cutman is from google and wow its late

     
     
  10. I have two announcements. First, for those of you interested in the Rockman: Battle and Chase manhua scans, I’ve started a separate blog (link here) where I will begin posting those…eventually. There will be some kinks to work out along the way, but I hope this blog out for everyone. Please post further questions/comments on that project there. :)
As for this blog, I posted a permanent f.a.q. page to the top navigation.
That is all!
