Project Protomen DRN-005 by Oniika Project Protomen DRN-005 by Oniika
Much like Cutman, Iceman gave me some trouble.

He's such a harmless cute design, that making him anything other than his powered-up form was really hard.

I decided to go with a sort of "derpy" look, so he still looks kind of "cute". I also decided, for some reason, that his arms should be like Metal Gear Ray's, but filled with liquid nitrogen, rather than water, allowing him to freeze things. Also, the white parts on his arms open outward, and the blue parts open upwards, revealing a bunch of... valves i guess? to dispense his cold...coldness from.

If anyone really wants, i can draw it out, but ehh.

I also decided to get a little more literal with Iceman's ability "Ice Slasher" by giving him icicle-like claws that he can form and fire off (similar to the Frost enemy in DMC4) at will.

Next up is Bombman!

I can't wait to see what you do with them all. So far they are simply epic. Gutsman looks like a boss.

Yeah the concept was to be like a flexible for of Metal Gear Ray's water-tank "wings"

I wanted it to look somewhat organic still, so I thought "OH! GEMBER!"

Though I understand you put in the hood, because it is kind of Ice Man's trade mark, it seems a bit out of place. However, it is quite a cool design (no pun intended). I like his arm-design and your explanation of them. And his face still makes him look kinda cute.

Keep up the good work.

the hood is kinda pointless, yeah, but I'm trying to keep the designs at least somewhat similar to the originals, which in soem cases i harder than others.

I can imagine, since the Megaman characters were small, cute and pixelated in the games. It is kinda tough to turn them into these awesome mechas that you're turning them in to. But you are doing a good job doing so. :)

He should definately keep the hood, but it just seems a bit out of place, because it is cute compared to all the cool (again, no pun intended) parts that define the rest of him. But it is kinda his trademark, so he shouldn't lose it. :P

I hope you will at some point make Bass (known as Forte in Japan), as he is one of my favourite Megaman characters, along with Zero, though I prefer the GBA Megaman Zero version of him. ;)

I think the derpiness comes from that silly hoodie. Without it, he just wouldn't be the same.

The hood and face in general.

Though I like how he turned out, especially since the arms were like.. a total last-minute afterthought.
