One of the two pieces I submitted to Udon's Mega Man Tribute book. This one didn't get in, but eh, I got in with another piece, and I'm super-happy with this one no matter what, so yay.
I don't even remember what inspired this, probably the song "Speed and Velocity" from They Might Be Giants's kids' album Here Comes Science
. And the desire to do a somewhat different "themed robots" pic by picking the speedsters. Plus an experiment in eye-bending perspective, and an urge to try a kind of looser, "sketchy inks" style, like the kind from one of those Mario sports games. The soccer one, I think. Or possibly basketball. Whatever.
