Ahh one of my favorite boss masters in the Megaman series, TENGUMAN! I never see enough artwork for this guy. This was initially part my first idea for the Megaman Tribute Book. I wanted to try something that was a homage to my favorite Megaman game, Megaman and Bass, but it was'nt turning out as well as I'd hope, so I trashed the idea.

Anywho, I got mad respect for the Tengu dude. It was pretty cool he made TWO appearances as a boss, in Megaman 8, and then Megaman and Bass. And I don't care if Megaman's voice was higher than Roll's, Megaman 8 was a badass game, but I digress lol. Hope you guys like it, later!

Figured I do a little tweak to the background and take it out of the Scraps!

Got to say I'm very impressed with your style it's very much your own. I especially like this piece because Tornado Hold was the first robot master I ever fought. The nostalgic value is priceless!

Aw yes!  I am all about Tenguman!

I never played any of the games and only saw my friend play X and 8, so Tenguman represents a majority of my understanding of Megaman.  When I first saw him, my friend and I liked him because we thought his name was "Tangoman" and he had a fun, goofy energy to him.  Years later, I realized his name was Tengu and that's where the real fun started.  Tenguman made me interested in learning about real tengu.  When I found out what they are, Tenguman became that much cooler.

Some people say he's an easy fight, those same people say he's actually a lot more difficult in Megaman and Bass, so you gotta give him props.  More importantly, this guy oozes style.  A flashy design, awesome wind powers and entire stage built around the concept of Japanese folklore?  Can you say "Coolest Robot Master?"

Your artwork, by the way, is fantastic!  The perspective is awesome, Tenguman's pose is even better and the detail is overwhelming!  Fan-fudging-tastic!

Awesome job sir, love how you made this!

I also agree..Megaman 8 was was pretty badass, in my opinion it is probably my most favorite Megaman game!
