I don't think that cash for the six-month premium was well spent. By the way, STRUN--BAH QO!
Thu Jun 23, 2016, 6:19 PM
One dollar is worth R$3,98. It was around R$2,69 when I bought my 12 month premium last year. Crap.

Only two weeks before my premium expires.

Sprite Comic - Mega Man X: Unit 49

Fri Jan 2, 2015, 4:30 PM

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?

Unexpected Guest
MMXU49: Unexpected Guest by IrregularSaturn

Have a character of yours in the Neo Maverick Army! Check the rules below.

MMX:U49 - Submit Your Maverick! (Update: 05 Dec) by IrregularSaturn

Mavericks already sprited:

SYM Megared by IrregularSaturn  Shattered Shepherd by IrregularSaturnHellfire Cerberus (SYM) by IrregularSaturnGrappler Megasoma (SYM) by IrregularSaturn

SYM Demintai by IrregularSaturn

[2016] Dec 19 - I have revamped all the pages of the Prologue with better texts and images. I did that not only to update Gigantex's sprite but also to give a better first impression to new readers. The drop of quality after the next few chapters will seem weird, but I don't think it matters that much. You can see how much I evolved since the beginning in January of 2015.

[2016] Nov 27 - After two months of intensive study, I have finally fought the final boss of the high school, the entrance exam for the Federal University, and I'm expecting a grade good enough to let me in. With that said, I have no more obstacles other than the sprites required to continue Mega Man X: Unit 49! I'll take a few days of rest and then return with full strenght, sorry if I let anyone waiting for too long.

[2016] Jun 4 - I forgot tell you that the wikia has been fully updated since the end of April. Also, Submit Your Maverick has already seven finished Mavericks and two pending. Summing up the backstories of Dr. Henry and Saturn (but from Henry's perspective most of time), I could separate the pre-comic arc in nine chapters:
MMX:U49 S0C1: Unsealing the Past - present time, after S1C19
MMX:U49 S0C2: Troublemaking Prodigy - 2174
MMX:U49 S0C3: Ms. Roemer - 2177
MMX:U49 S0C4: Awareness - 2179
MMX:U49 S0C5: Loop of Meanings - 2179 to 2182
MMX:U49 S0C6: Berserk - 2182
MMX:U49 S0C7: A Triumph Before the Disaster - 2182 to 2186
MMX:U49 S0C8: The Chosen Heir - 2187 to 2188
MMX:U49 S0C9: Ineluctable Demise - 2188

I'll control myself to not put too many details in the backgrounds for this arc so I can finish them as soon as possible. With everything ready and without too many interruptions, I'll try to finish this arc in less than month. That means Season 2 will start around August and, with luck, end before 2017.

[2016] Mar 30 - Still with problems about continuing the series, but I was able to update almost all the articles in the wiki after spending some weeks there, go read there if you're interested. Also, check the Submit Your Maverick post if you're wanting to give me a hand.

[2016] Mar 02 - My computer has received an upgrade and now I have the double (8GB) of my older memory. No more out of memory issues with Paint.NET. Yay. This week my third grade of high school started and I can't stay up late anymore, my energies will easily run out, added with the lack of motivation and discouraging amount of work to do for the next arc. If I jump directly to Season 2 and leave the prequel arc for later I'll have the same amount of work, but not the same kind of work.
This might be a hiatus.
I'm still updating the wikia.

[2015] Dec 13 - Prototype Chapter 16 is finished a total of 18 pages. It hurts to think that I'll have to redo everything, but at least will be fast since I already know how everything will happen, what sprites to use and etc. I won't need anything for Chapter 18, but for 17 it will be necessary around 4 backgrounds and a few new sprites, this one will be made in the final version at first. Here's a preview (no relevant spoilers).

[2015] Dec 5 - Updated a few pages in Chapter 4,12,13 and 14 to fix an error in Snacman's sprite. The pages for the next three chapters are being made in prototype versions so I can make sure everything will be schematized and also if I'll need any more sprites. Chapter 16, 17 and 18 will start to be posted in the next weekend.

[2015] Nov 29 - A new logo for the comic has been made anc the old one has been replaced in most of the media sources. The banners from the 15th chapter onwards will have this new logo and the 90 pages before may be update someday.

[2015] Oct 17 - The 14th Chapter will be delayed, at this point the backgrounds were supposed to be finished but I spent the last three days writing a complete timeline for the story, beginning in the 2170's to the end, the whole file has more than 15 pages and it's all in portuguese for now. I'll translate everything when I finish the 1st Season (probably next month) and post a version without spoilers here and in the Wiki, then update as the comic progresses.

[2015] Sep 13 - Going to make a mass edit of the first dozens of pages to reduce the size of the fonts and fix minor errors... prepare your inboxes.

[2015] Aug 27 - The Wiki has been updated with info of the 9th, 10th and 11th chapters, check the whole update note by clicking here.

[2015] July 2 - The Wiki has been updated with info of the 7th and 8th chapter, there is still one article missing but I'll write everything at once when I finish the 10th chapter.

[2015] June 7 (2): As I've increased a lot my CSS skills, I've made a new skin for this journal, reusing some stuff I've made for the Smack Jeeves site skin. Also added the synopsis that was missing for some reason.

[2015] June 7 - The wiki has been updated with info of the 4th chapter, go check it if you're interested.

[2015] June 2 - Finally gathered all the seven dragon ba-- I mean, the remaining parts and now I'm back with a computer twice as potent than it was before Paint.NET exploded my memory. I'll be working RIGHT NOW to continue Mega Man X: Unit 49 with everything I have!

[2015] April 6 - Got my computer back, but half of its memory is gone. Finishing this chapter will suck, since with 4GB of RAM I was still having difficulties. Hang on.

[2015] April 3 - Due to recent problems with my computer, the comic will have a break of around four days or more, I'll update this journal again if I'm able to return before.

[2015] February 21 - MMX:U49 has a Wiki.
Click here to be redirected!

[2015] February 6 - New poll: Please help me decide the design of this character. (Finished)

"Mega Man Unidade 49" was my project of Mega Man X game since I was 6 (more than 9 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 chapter 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
, I was finally free to return to my personal projects.
I realized that I evolved A LOT after them, and I would not like to make another style change in my comic, and I also had to fix a lot of bad errors in my plot.
And now, 2015, I will start to remake these remade pages (yes) and continue the story until something oblige me to stop once again.

You can check this journal once a week to see if there are new pages or watch me, or follow the comic in its Smack Jeeves site.

IrregularSaturn's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Neo Maverick Army Advertising 1 by IrregularSaturn
I'm 17 years old and a digital artist since my childhood.
Some years ago, most of my time was used to play video games, that means I have a very wide taste, and Mega Man is my favorite series.
I started to make "sprites" when I was six, since then my biggest dream was to make a game. After some time, I realized that making a comic is much more viable to me and tried a lot of different things, series and stories. In April 2010, I started my first real project: "Megaman X: Unidade 49" (Megaman X: Unit 49 in English). In fact, the project didn't began there. Most part of the characters were already made several years before, around 2006.
After making several breaks in the production, I decided to remake everything. During 2014, my experience with the Nitrusland Escape Tournament and the World Spriter's Tournament of the Middle Ground Comics resulted in a huge evolution in my comic making, spriting and writing skills. Since Capcom abandoned our poor Megas, it's up to their fans to keep him alive, and that's why I'm going to do my best.
I really appreciate feedback, but if you don't have a critique, pointing grammar/visual errors or simply showing me that you are reading helps me a lot to continue.

PS: If you are going to invite me for a project, PLEASE say the details, I don't have a crystal ball to guess what do you exactly want me to do. If you have a good and convincing idea/plot, at least make a resume of it - even so you can expect a "no" since I'm always busy.
PS2: Requests are closed, don't bother.
PS3: What I use for my works:
Pixel Art:
Paint.NET - only when I need to adjust contrast, palettes and other properties;
Photoshop CS4 - very rarely, normally I only use the Indexed Color tool for special effects.
Paint.NET - the pages, effects, all the stuff;
Photoshop CS4 - perspective/warp/features that aren't present in Paint.NET.
GIF Movie Gear
My right hand;
Paint.NET/Photoshop - Lineart, Illustration and etc.
PS4: Don't beg to me teach you anything. There are several tutorials around deviantART or other sites that will explain better than me, but my general advice is to mimic other styles and PRACTICE!

Sorry for the lack of updates in the last week, I have been spending my time making my level for Make a Good Mega Man Level 2 contest. After working intensely for days, I think everything is polished (I may decrease the difficulty deppending on the feedback tho), so maybe tomorrow I'll make comics again.
Forget what I said in the last status, I will exceed the time I thought it would take to finish the page, so it will be posted in the first hours of 2017. Happy New Year for everyone!
Last page of the year coming today (it can't be posted another day now, lol), I just need to draw some stuff to illustrate three panels so it won't be just a wall of text. What will be shown in S2C2P6 may be the only hint you will be seeing in a long time about the origins of a certain character.

Happy Birthday from a die hard Mega Man X fan.  Fav character is Zero.
IrregularSaturn Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's funny to see "die hard" and Zero in the same line xD
Thank you!
KurisuWriting Featured By Owner 3 days ago
Don't mention it.

For me, Mega Man X is forever.
IrregularSaturn Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
For me too, of course. I said it was funny because Zero died/retired many times through the franchise.
