Anthro Megas 2012 by Dadward Anthro Megas 2012 by Dadward
Okay, so I know that May 5th is the anniversary of Megas XLR on Cartoon Network and that some people posted some cool images. I wanted to post this Saturday, I really did! But each version I did, never really looked good or charming. I finally had a spark of inspiration and worked out all the kinks that didn't work for me last week.

The brain child of this concept goes to :iconchibi-angelwolf-chan:. She did this idea way, way, way back in 2004, and when she posted that concept I had to try that too back then. At the time, I thought I did a really good version. But really, it wasn't that good. Now look how I've grown! I do feel that this updated version of Anthro-Megas is better than the one I did all those years ago. Actually, that was around the time I first joined DA. How the time has flown.

Don't think I wont try an Anthro Mutt for Motorcity!

Don't get me wrong she's got one hot body (haha flames pun) but I really liked that show and seeing this I feel so... confused... I don't know what anything means anymore!

Sweet concept, Dadward. And I think an Anthro Mutt would work well-- I'd be sure to make it male though, The car itself and the art style in general seems to suggest a very macho, testosterone-flooded character for Mutt. Like maybe Duke Nukem with wheels and a bright green paint job. Hell, he already goes fast enough XD
Oh wow, listen to me go on about my ideas. Heh.
Well if you *do* happen to like the idea, I guess feel free to steal it.

thanks for your kind words. Did you see the anthro mutt I posted last week? I went more feminine. But I think I did a good distillation of what ananthro mutt could be.

Thanks. I've been meaning to do this concept for a long time. I had done a couple a bunch of years ago. I've improved since than, and I'm happy with the results.

Funny what the benefit of time does with the perception of art and style. At the time, all those years ago, I thought I did a good job and a solid image. After I finished and posted this 2012 Anthro Megas, I went and hunted down the original Anthro Megases in my archive...I was shocked how how naive and simple those images were! I would've hated to have had that much time pass between those two images and not have improved. It's embarrassing (for me) to look at those illustrations. It's funny how perception changes. I'd like to think this image will be more representational of my abilities, and I hope when I look back on this illustration, I would be as disappointed.
