MMZ - Stranger in the Desert by kureejiilea MMZ - Stranger in the Desert by kureejiilea
My entry for a little fan art contest - the idea being to take a track from OverClocked ReMix and do an image inspired by it (still based on the game itself). DarkeSword's Stranger in the Desert [link] from Mega Man Zero 2 seemed like a good subject - the mix itself works in the two themes from the start of the game, in which Zero wanders the desert during a sandstorm. It's got a cool, kinda introspective and lonely feel with a hint of determination - after all, this is Zero we're talking about - so I tried to get some of that feeling across here. Came rather easily, actually.

Zero © Capcom.

Wow, you captured him perfectly! And I'm amazed that anyone else knows about OC Remixes! I've got a whole track devoted to Megaman remixes, and my favorite is "Beamsabre Beat ZEROv2" and "The Tallest Building." It's a great image to pair with the music. :highfive:
I LOVE ZERO.

Thanks! Actually, I was a project director at OCR (the Tales of Symphonia/Phantasia album), and there have been a lot of published interviews and the like for the site in the last few years, so word is getting out. Capcom even had OCR do the arranged soundtrack for Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix.

This is just so epic, Lea! I really like the way the glowing sword and head gem thing stick out atop the rest of the silhouette.

Thanks! The gem and sword are a bit more "rule of cool" than realistic, but I'm kinda pleased how it all worked out for a quick piece.

I could have sworn I commented on this. I really like how you pulled off the glowing bits. They remain interesting, but they don't take away from anything. And the blowing sand is pretty awesome o.o
