Edit: er forgot one of the darn arms have to be a severe weapon... imaging a really big Steam Gun. Ahem. STEAM GUN. -_- don't draw when it's late people.

I was liking the Train man, thats a bummer about the other train man.. Sketch was looking really good. =)

can't wait to see what else you'll come up with. You can get some really creative ideas when your half asleep. It's the best itme to play Paranoia. =)

Umm, I'm almost already doing that one (BoilerMan, attacks with superheated water vapor)...but SteamMan isn't breaking the rules, I don't think. Maybe we could be like rivals or something! :B

And that is a shame becuase your train man looks really cool. I don't suppose RailroadMan is deviation enough to be allowed...

...JohnHenryMan?

Alright. Coal Man is my FINAL Decision. Coal Man is an aristocrat obsessed with the coal industry! He wears a big top hat, has a fancy mustache and such. He packs the Coal Flame Blaster. A weapon that superheats coal and launches it at Megaman! The coal continues to burn even after it hits him, so it creates burning for about 3 seconds after impact. More life drain! On top of that (not shown) when he gets closer to dying he becomes DIAMOND MAN ( it's just going to be a texture swap) where he becomes too enraged he turns into a diamond type skin and shoots.. DIAMONDS. HAHAH... anyways, here's the pic for coal man:

What is that from? He isn't listed on our list in the main thread, and I can't find him in Megaman 1-8?
edit: nevermind, he is Charge Man from Megaman 5.

I'd say go ahead and do train man if you want, and as I've said in the FAQ since there have been very similar villains already done before (Flame man, Heat man, Fire Man) so long as you aren't copying the guy exactly (which you aren't) it's legit. Since the other train-based guy is Charge Man, you can do Train Man or Locomotive Man and that's fine. The designs are different enough.

That is true but remember the element might be the same but, like your example, each have major noticible differences. Example Flame Man isn't similar in desgn in anyway to Fire Man or Heat Man. As Much as I like the design of Train Man, hes just too similar to Charge Man. Coal Man is, in my opinion, a much better design, he really fits the MM universe very well. I can't wait to see him done

base mesh

the starting point:


He's about 2300 triangles right now. The coal box should be about 100 triangles. I'm not sure how crazy to go, so i'll start off simple and then go from there.
