When "Mega Man X" first came out, I always found Launch Octopus to be the MOST annoying Maverick to fight in the game (not necessarily the hardest) because he would always shoot so much AT you every time he attacked! I suppose I've probably fought FAR worse in video games by now, but he's still a jerk by "Mega Man X" video game series standards.
That's weird, when I was young, I was always able to beat Armored Armadillo just fine (and this was long before I found out that you can use the Spark Charge attack to simply blow that maverick's armor off.) But I still think that Boomer Kwanger is annoying, and so is Sting Chameleon! That's probably why whenever I played through the stages, I always saved Launch Octopus and those other two bosses as the last REGULAR bosses I had to fight. Enough said!
Now this is something interesting. It's common for me to see realistic Maveriks and by-the-book Maverik drawings but this really deviates from normal fanart and adds a lot of character! There's all the original detail of Launch Octopus (Eargasmic level theme) with a little bit of your style injected. I can see the proportions have been changed and the eyes have been enlarged quite a bit. I can't wait to see this robot boss in one of your Comics. I can see good things in your future.
Thanks so much! Your right on the money. My original goal was to go as by the book as possible with unique poses for each Maverick, but as I went on it became clear that I was giving them my own special flair, so I started really running with it!
