Mega Man X: Unit 49 - Saturn - 04-02-2015

Greetings, I'd like to present you my long-time project:
[Image: mmux49t1_by_saturnthereploid-d9ihtwd.png]
Synopsis
After the battle on the Moon, Sigma had his "final defeat", along with Lumine and his plans. X and Zero are just a few steps away from reaching the dreamed peace between reploids and humans... However, dozens, if not hundreds of dangerous Mavericks are still around the world since the fall of the space colony Eurasia, followed by the Nightmare Phenomena and the Maverick Spring - not to mention that the Sigma Virus is still spread through all the world. Finding and putting an end to these criminals is duty of the Maverick Hunters, and it doesn't seem to be such a hard task now that Sigma is gone... But what if one these criminals build a huge conspiracy to wage another war? What if Sigma is not really gone?

Development
"Mega Man Unidade 49" was my project of Mega Man X game since I was 6 (more than 11 years ago), I realized later that I couldn't make a game of it with my skill at that time, so I started to make the comic in April 2010. You can read the old version here, but it is in portuguese (very bad portuguese btw, good luck).
For various reasons, I was slowing the production due to lack of ideas and time, and stopped it once for all in the 57th page in 2013, year that I managed to make only one and a half page.
In the first days of 2014, I began to remake the comic, with a enhanced story. However, I had to halt the production once again due to two sprite comic tournaments.
After winning both Nitrusland Escape and World Spriter's Tournament, I was finally free to return to my personal projects. I realized that I had evolved a lot during that period, and I would not like to make another style change in my comic. More importantly, I had developed a more critique view and realized the plot was not well planned and decided to erase everything once again.

Since January 2015, I'm making the definitive version of this story, this time putting an actual effort in researches and taking all the cautions to prevent the plot from conflicting with the canon and expanding the lore of Mega Man X. This time I'll continue the story until something forces me to stop once again, but I don't plan to leave it unfinished.

If you are interested, here is a text about how I write my comic.

The timelined used in the comic can be viewed here: (huge image)

You can also follow this comic in my DeviantART or in its Smack Jeeves site.

I'm writing a Wiki for the comic, and it's updated after almost every arc completion.

Considering my pages are normally 3~6MB, I'll only post hyperlinks instead of images, since all of them together would weigh too much on a single forum page.

RE: Mega Man X: Unit 49 - Smurf-Killer Squee - 11-02-2015

Well... It looks pretty polished.

Might I suggest you put your comic on Smackjeeve's instead of deviant art though? It's a much better comic site, and it's easier for people to follow you.

I'm publishing in both, the link is in the first post.
Or are you talking about sending the page links of Smack Jeeves instead of dA?


RE: Mega Man X: Unit 49 - Smurf-Killer Squee - 12-02-2015

Maybe link to Smackjeeve's. Or at least add the option.

It's been more than 10 days since I didn't post any page. It's because I was working in backgrounds and writing the articles for the [Image: Wiki-wordmark.png]
The basic pages are already written, and it's going to be updated after every chapter completion.
To compensate the inactivity, there will be more than 4 pages this week if everything goes well.

PS: Changed the font and the speech bubbles' style since a lot of people didn't like the Times New Roman-ish font I was using.

Things didn't went too well.
Took a little more to post these pages due procrastination and the preparations of stuff for the 4th chapter.

RE: Mega Man X: Unit 49 - Cyanosis - 08-03-2015

I meant to say this for the last page; but the highly detailed mouths are a bit disconcerting.
It's like when cartoons edit in a person speaking with their real mouth in place of the cartoon's simplified mouth.

It might just be me, but ya never know it might be bothering someone else.

I admit I make thing too much blurry sometimes, it's hard to make the right facial expression.

Two new pages, things finally started to heat up.

RE: Mega Man X: Unit 49 - Saturn - 23-03-2015

Alright, after being busy and putting effort to keep the quality (since my computer can barely handle this chapter's PDN file) two new pages.
This chapter is becoming bigger than I expected, so it will reach in 7~9 pages
Season 1, Chapter 4: Parade

Page 5 (dA) (SJ)


RE: Mega Man X: Unit 49 - Saturn - 10-05-2015

Uhh, sorry for not updating. I was planning to update this topic after finishing the fourth chapter, but I couldn't. My computer memory got corrupted now I have only 2GB of RAM, making it almost impossible to continue the comic in this computer, specially when I was using a heavy file for this chapter.
Before going on hiatus, I made two more pages.
Season 1, Chapter 4: Parade
Page 6 (dA) (SJ)
Page 7 (dA) (SJ)

While waiting for the new computer parts, I've put some hard work to make the comic "promo art", dunno if it will be only for Season 1 or the entire comic, here is it:

As I said in the deviation description, I'll be trying to continue the comic with the problems mentioned above or not in a few days.


RE: Mega Man X: Unit 49 - Saturn - 03-06-2015

Okay, finally gathered the three parts and built Zero again resumed the comic production! My computer should be twice as potent than it was before the memory corruption.
Definitely going to finish this chapter this week, I'll be making some effort to compensate the 2 months I lost, but without cutting quality or content.
Season 1, Chapter 4: Parade
Page 8 (dA) (SJ)
Enjoy!


RE: Mega Man X: Unit 49 - Saturn - 06-06-2015

Two and a half new pages!
Season 1, Chapter 4: Parade
Page 9 (dA) (SJ)
Page 10 (dA) (SJ)

I merged page 11 with 10, since it wouldn't have the same size of the normal ones, plus the dialogue has been posted altogether.
This big page explains the reason for this supposedly pointless destruction and the "parade", also reveals some important things. The dialogue was developed to show some information without overwhelming the reader, and try to maintain the interest or get interest for those who are still lacking of it.


RE: Mega Man X: Unit 49 - Saturn - 08-06-2015

The Wiki has been updated with info of the 4th chapter and I've also written new character articles.
And there's also a new synopsis for the comic, the former one wasn't exactly insinuating what I wanted and giving the mystery that involves the entire plot of MMX:U49.


RE: Mega Man X: Unit 49 - Bloo - 08-06-2015

Awww... I was hoping this would be a fangame. ;-;

When I was a kid, the plan was to make it a game, but I hadn't skill/time/resources to do so, and then the comic was born! Maybe it could have a game adaptation someday, who knows?


RE: Mega Man X: Unit 49 - Saturn - 12-06-2015

Two new pages of the fifth character, and it seems Saturn timed his Parade to happen in the same time of the government announcement.
Season 1, Chapter 5: Eerie Changes
Page 1 (dA) (SJ)
Page 2 (dA) (SJ)
These pages are very simple since they're mostly dialogues and speeches, but they took some time to make since I had to make more backgrounds.


RE: Mega Man X: Unit 49 - Saturn - 18-06-2015

Last page of the fifth chapter and a new and short one. I didn't wanted to pad things out too much since I want to start the first "stage" as soon as possible.

Season 1, Chapter 5: Eerie Changes
