Gate by ultimatemaverickx Gate by ultimatemaverickx
One of my fave villain of the X series. Too bad I didn't drew him well... I think.

I felt so proud when I beat Gate! XD

Break down the Gate, only to find a pile of scrap called Sigma clinging to life!

Is it me, or does Gate look a lot like Magneto? Especially in his gold armor? And the fact that he's a scientist? (is he? IDK, Gate's new to me)

I've just finished looking at some of the original artwork for Gate..........Yours is WAY better.

Nice Job! (And thanks for honoring one of MegaMan X's most memorable villains!!) :)

Gaaaaaaate! Gah, I hated this guy! His boss fight was fundamentally unfair and frustrating. My hat's off to anybody who enjoyed the fight with Gate, aside from that glorious feeling of triumph when you win and all that's left are the significantly easier Sigma battles... I'm sure I'd share the enjoyment of his character if it weren't surrounded in... well... Mega Man X6. I enjoy a fair challenge, not an unfair one, so again, my hat's off to the people who liked X6 for being unbearably difficult by incomplete design.


*Ahem* Somehow, this take on him seems... younger? I dunno. Perhaps his proportions are slightly more childish, and he looks a hair shorter. It's mostly with his battle form that it really sticks out. Maybe it's just because of the giant shoulder pads and cape, and I'm insane, or something along those lines. And... is his left shoulder differently-shaped than his right in his battle form? Or is that just the perspective?

I actually like how you did it.

Gate really was an interesting villain, shame he died :I

She was coerced into it, true.  (I'm rereading the lore and realizing it was her fellow researches and boss that had her sabotaging reploids, not the government)  She did feel guilty later though, and confesses as much to X if he gets enough nightmare souls.

It's just I'm noticing a trend that starts with the X-series: even when the government isn't the bad guys, they're still not completely legit, either. (although they often ARE the bad guys)  Ever since politics and ideologies really started getting going, the rights of the weak have been trampled.  Makes for a good backdrop for Sigma's "survival of the fittest", X's Neo Arcadia, and Model W's "New World" spiels, to say nothing of the Sage Trinity.
Forte-Cross-Exe Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think that even though it was her coworkers and boss its safe to say they were government given her current line of work. That's a plot point for a lot of stories it seems, government wants something and so they have an organization take care of that thing while they do shady/frowned upon practices in the shadows. Or something like that.
SandBlaster3000 Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
MMX series was full of people who died tragically. Usually at the hands of the "protagonists" too.  Not too surprised that the orginal concept for MMZ's Copy X was just a really original Megaman X.

I love how the capes and character focal directions give this a sort-of yin-yang look.
Forte-Cross-Exe Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, but given how much story was actually put in place at the beginning of the series, I guess it isn't to be that big of a surprise. I mean the First Classic game didn't have any story, to my understanding, outside of the booklet?
SandBlaster3000 Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
As far as I know, yeah, there wasn't much story in the first one.  Then again, Classic was all about not-quite-sentient robots duking it out.  MMX had them all become fully-conscious people though, and at least a third of the time they weren't really evil (Repliforce, the parts guardians of X5, Gate's robots that the government "disposed of" out of fear in X6).  There's quite a few questionable deployments of the maverick hunters, so much so that it's hard to see them as the good guys sometimes.  And Alia was a straight-up murderer, sabotaging Gate's genius creations at the behest of the government, so it's hard to see her with sympathetic light.

Poor, poor Gate.
Forte-Cross-Exe Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
True, though I'd still like to think she's not all to blame, because the Government can be a frightful thing to the weak. She could have felt like her hands were tied and options limited. Is she still at fault? Yeah, but that way it's not made out to be all her fault, because let's face it, she doesn't seem like she would do something like that on her own.

It looks really cool! Nice colors and the poses look perfect! :icongreatjobplz:
LunaClefairy Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Regardless of what you say, this is still far better than anything I've drawn.
So you like this character? It seems to me that X6 is generally disliked, but there are always exceptions!
