With apologies to Mr. Inafune

Earlier this month while working on a music video tribute to Mega Man, I posted this picture with a few drawings of Mega Man that I had done over the years, but I was puzzled because I could've sworn I had drawn him way more in between 1996 and 2001 but couldn't find anything. Well, today, I found some of those...in-between drawings and I thought I'd post them for your entertainment (and my horror). Click on the thumbnails for larger images.

This first one is definitely from 1996 because it was in a notebook from the same grade as the drawing in the previously mentioned picture. It...appears to be some kind of level design. And I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that's Air Man up top.

This one (and the following ones) is from around 1999, I think. Cut Man looks like he's...retaining water. More than the other characters anyway. The only thing that's pretty accurate is the little Bunbi Heri in the upper right there.

Here's a bunch of bosses from the first three games. I like how almost all of them have initials written on them, probably so you would have an inkling as to who the hell they were. And then I ended up writing their names under them anyway.

This drawing of Top Man is not much worse than the one in my video, actually...


There's more drawings of things other than Mega Man in that 1999 sketchbook, but...no, I just don't have it in me to reveal those. I think I may burn it, in fact. I know they say you should keep all of your art over time but...seriously. You'd want to burn it too.
