Megaman Reboot: Megaman

And finally, Megaman himself.

He needs no redesign really. I made some minimal changes here and there, but that is mainly just to suit my drawing style. Considering he’s basically a Mighty Atom / Astroboy riff, he still manages to stand on his own quite well.

Megaman Reboot: Wily Machine

I redesigned the classic Wily Machine to fall in line with the later interpretations of the ship. I love the skull design and wanted to bring that back.

It’s hard to incorporate an over sized skull in to a design without it being ridiculously obvious. I tried my hardest, but suspect I failed in that regard.

There was a temptation to design Wily’s skull ship to be super elegant and minimalist, which obviously suits his aesthetic far more. I imagine that this skull ship is only in it’s prototype stage, and he is forced to use it before it’s ready.

Megaman Reboot: Doctor Wily

To start with, yes, Doctor Wily is Karl Lagerfeld.

The classic designs of Wily and Light are cut from too similar a cloth. I wanted to push Wily in a very different direction from his classic “mad scientist” look. Their appearance, costuming, physique should all visually describe their characters philosophy towards robots.

Wily views them as being tools, things to own, use, enhance OUR lives.

Light views them as beings in their own rights, capable of full and meaningful existences beyond ones simply in relation to ours.

nights and weekends

There’s some big news to announce for later this month. I will be exhibiting my 8 Bit Dreams series of Nintendo themed illustrations at the wonderful exhibition/project space Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis. It will be part of a group show called Nights and Weekends that explores the mad world of personal projects.

You can preview the works here with a song that always gets in my head by Surashuu. Original works measure 14cm x 14cm and are watercolour and black ink on watercolour paper. They will be available to purchase after the opening.

Not only that, on the 21st of September I will be hosting an all night comics jam lock in at the gallery. Staying up late always makes me think of Mario Party / Goldeneye / Perfect Dark marathons back in highschool.

Get ready to make comics, learn all about Campbell’s projects and process and be inspired! Part workshop and part challenge, All-Night wth Campbell Whyte : Comic Jam will challenge participants to make a complete 8 page mini comic, discuss, and finally print copies of their very own stories! We’ll be making a late-night run to xerox our work, have time to fold & format, and participants will walk away with a big assortment of mini comics made by everyone involved!

Megaman Reboot: Doctor Light

I wanted Doctor Light to look like some Silicon Valley hippie tech genius who believes all sorts of mystical and new age philosophy and religion, and incorporates that in to his design of robots.

He should be set up in sharpest contrast with his rival, Doctor Wily in that regard.
