X and Zero, Nuts and Gum by woekitten X and Zero, Nuts and Gum by woekitten
Making this poster taught me a valuable lesson. Creating an 8 x 11 picture out of a tiny playing card just doesn't work out well. It doesn't look so bad here, but on the actual print out, X and Zero are unpleasantly blurry. I don't care none for their "halos," neither. Well, life is a learning experience. I made the background out of screenshots from a Megaman X ROM, and it was a pain in the ass. I keep meaning to give this poster to my brother for his birthday two years ago, and I keep forgetting.

WOW! It's amazing what you did! I want this poster! BTW, why is it "Nuts and Gum"?

that is an excellent question! And I don't have an answer. XD I guess I was just being silly and referencing the Simpsons. "Nuts and Gum: Together at Last."

Nope. I scanned X and Zero from a card I had. The background is made up of background images from the stages in Mega Man X.

Really cool; I love Zero! You know what you should've done with the levels as the background, you should've gone in the order that a pro would speedrun the game: The starting level, chill penguin, storm eagle, flame mammoth, spark mandrill, armoured armadillo, launch octopus, boomer whatever the hell his name is and sting chameleon (and if you have room then you could put the sigma levels too). That's just how I'd do it, but your way is good too!

This is awesome. TRULY AWESOME, I TELL YA. It's so.. amazingly nostalgic, It's so original X! The style of Mega Man X arwork..

Hell, I can't just tell you enough how I love this picture. I must kiss the ground you're walking on. Seriously, this picture rocks. You just have to love the very first Mega Man X game and its magic.

One more time, I love this. I really really do.

That is very cool! X kinda looks like the original MegaMan there, but that's okay!

I like it. I kinda have a soft spot for older Megaman prodution art. It looks,in the immortal words of Hobbes:

"Like...like...ASTROBOY!"

It almost looks like a religious display of megaman. Hah. Great conceptual design, either way. =)

Some people may think it doesn't take alot of work to slap a few pieces of things together and make it look good..but they're a buncha lesbian homo erectus i say!

I especally like how you managed to keep the color scheme of the background screenshots so pleasantly ..together.. blue, seems to be the most dominant color and not an amazingly strong blue..but a pale blue..it makes me happy.

Hehehehe, no, this wasn't an easy poster to make. On the actual card, Zero is standing right next to X. I wanted to put him slightly behind, which meant a lot of delicate work ... not to mention that I had to reconstruct the right side of Zero's helmet since it was covered by some gay status number.

I really like the colour blue, especially aqua blue. That's what happens when you're a Cancer, I guess.
