Perfection Neo - The Superiors by AndrewDickman Perfection Neo - The Superiors by AndrewDickman
You can all thank for funding this image. More characters from the series to come.

Please don't ask me if it's RockMan related, because it isn't... thanks... The entire ordeal has been settled (hopefully) LONG long ago...

This is pretty awesome, some of the primes remind me of some the characters in the megaman classic series.

I remembered these guys from the past! Your short flash movie, Rockman NEO, was freaking awesome!!

Neo? Does he know Kung-Fu? Is he "The One"?
NamefulDeityofnames Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2014
The "Neo" that you are mentioning is from the Matrix franchise. Also this "Neo" isn't the "Neo" that you are mentioning.
sekkechi Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013
too bad absolutely none of these people belong to you directly... since as far as i understand from a close friend of mine who worked on this project when it was originally just on Newgrounds you were the lead animator correct?
wasn't shinobu originally called bushido? and cirus was cyrus?
you say the ordeal was settled, but it's not very nice to go behind the old teams back and do this.

i would like to ask you something andrew. Together with my friend and a new group me and him could gather together i would like to restart the original project, Rockman Neo, the way it originally had been. With updated designs and new information that we can now incorporate into it. these people are not solely yours, so please don't pull bullshit copyright on me when you were the one who backed out of the original team because you were terrified capcom was gonna sue you for 'stealing their ideas'. But since you have restarted this on your own i figured it was only fair to ask.

well first off, yes, these characters do belong to me directly, and no, none of these characters names have changed from their original concepts other than the fact they're no longer connected to Mega Man.
The problem was, this was originally a "Mega Man" fan concept I thought up years ago in my youth and made a music video out of it. When that got really popular, I decided to then write this whole story outline about it, creative juices running. While all this was going about, there was a group of folks who wanted to make it into a game, the prospect of it sounded great to me, obviously, but I kinda felt wrong about doing it since it wasn't technically an original idea. There's this whole drama about it that I'd like to leave behind, but yeah, apparently it's still going on by people who have the claim that they've 'helped' me in some way or another.

While I'm not continuing this project as a "fan" project, I do have hopes to independently produce this as a project in the future.

I took liberties to change the concept to fit more of a original IP, and did away with the Mega Man elements and went from there, with this of course being stemmed heavily from mega man inspiration, it will show anyway as many things oft do.
I'm not going to do this project as a Mega man series, sorry. And as good intentions I feel you have, past issues prevent me from wanting to allow any other further continuation of the project from outside sources unless I get full control of the project and I choose my team (wisely) This idea is a huge and very ambitious project that will have to be on hiatus until I can come up with a method to this madness. Who knows, Kickstarter is a big thing now.

I appreciate you coming to me like this so publicly but you can't honestly volunteer yourself into a project and simply say the license is yours as much as I can't say I own Mega man because I made a fan video based on an idea I had. Don't pull 'bullshit copyright' with me either as you put it so kindly, I'd appreciate you carefully phrase your business proposals, I mean, how old are you? If you're going to come up to someone and cuss at them about a proposition, how am I supposed to take you seriously?
sekkechi Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013
i never said the license was mine by any means. i never knew who originally started the project, that information wasn't given to me nor who came up with the original story line or who designed the characters.
as for the "bullshit copyright" part, i do admit that was childish and mainly a result of me being frustrated. apologies for that one.
i understand the want to make it an independent project separate from megaman/rockman, but in all honesty taking so heavily from their designs can also get you into trouble. as they can still say you stole the style of their games and shut you down. with that in mind if you do continue this project i would recommend redesigning them without any megaman influence to avoid that, but still keeping their basic concepts and personalities.
my main idea was to just remake the trailer that exists for it with updated designs and visual effects, as a tribute to the original project. but then i thought if i was going to do that i might as well try and continue the project fully, but i can see that isn't going to happen and i can respect that.
i do still like the story idea and the character concepts, it would be a shame to see it die off without really going anywhere. while you'd be the leader of the project of course, it would be wise to delegate control a bit and allow others to have a say. otherwise you're likely to just piss them off and make them feel like their voice isn't important. trust me on that one I've seen that happen to groups multiple times over.
and to answer the question of how old i am, though i believe it was rhetorical i might as well answer it, i'm 21.
even if you don't continue the project as a megaman fangame, i would still like to remake the trailer as a tribute to the original project like i had planned to do in the first place. that's it, no more no less. giving credit to you and capcom of course since the characters are yours and the megaman games are capcoms.

I saw these characters on a Newgrounds video and I thought they were awesome.

Looking at them now, I still think they're awesome.

whoa really epic neo looks looks evil but cool anyway nice music video of this on newgrounds
CalmHillOfTreasures Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2012
Would have liked to know more about the series, particularly about Neo's past, but I'll be satisfied with what I know now.

Prime Axel and Prime Gideon are my personal favorites, they look like they'd get along and move in similar ways.

I believe these are the ones you're looking for?


A few older scans are in my RS gallery. They'll be there until I make some newer, better quality scans myself when the drawings arrive in the mail. :)

i always though tha prime cirus was a girl .-. anyways.. IS FREAKING AWESOME
gokou-sama Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ooo! I hope this means the game is still in the works! It was a pretty big inspiration towards my robotic art style (I originally thought it was just a drawing someone did on oekaki of this whole deal, and I found it to be the most awesome robot style I had seen).

I was pretty bummed to learn that the game had stopped production, but this gives me hope even if I'm viewing it 5 years late.

holy crap are you good at drawing and can i make this into a series i promise to give credit to you 100%

heeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyy!!!! wasn't this a newgrounds video

(and i do not sound like a complete retard i just wanted to point that out)
Tehlivingpencil Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
when i first saw perfection neo it was AWESOME!
now it's even AWESOMER! (if there even is a word like that). and, i didn't know the grey one was called axel. thanks for clearing that up.
On-A-WHM Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2008
I was such a fan of this flash when I first saw it on Newgrounds. In fact, it was when I first heard of you, and then about dA. (feels nostalgic)

Little bit sad that you weren't going to do anything with it, but that's okay. I wonder if I could see the script to see what the plot was going to be.

Anyway, very cool picture! I love each and every character!
Flame-G102 Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2008  Student Traditional Artist
Sweet. boy its been a while since ive seen those guys...
Unfortunately Mr. Dickman, Rockman Neo will never really die, because just so many people liked it. I mean, come on, who didnt like the apocalyptic crazy Megaman Idea? I mean, It inspired many>_> even I can boast to having been inspired by the idea which resulted in one of my own rockman Neo-ish character. *facepalm*
But anyway, I have to know, is Shinobu based off of Terra (of the Stardroids) design wise?
Axixion Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
holy shnap! I've devwatched you for a long time and never noticed this! your art has been my inspiration with my mecha style all this time!

Wicked designs on all of them.

this also fvcks with my NEO sprite sheet im workin in.(ya i think its that good)
but i guess i'll need to recolor it.
TheOuterSoul Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007
you can tell panic is a suicide bomber.
but circus confuses that a dude?
NEO is the best one...but what about that "ZERO"like character in the NG animation
is he in this?
fokkusu1991 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2008
lol, yes, Cirus is a dude. Ironically, even though he looks like a girl, he's a rapist.
Zero was scrapped because the MM references had to be removed. He's been replace by Rule Blade: [link]
TheOuterSoul Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2008
rule blade looks awsome(he wud own zero) XD
masterxeno Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2007
This is amazing stuff, unfortunately Ive only seen the Perfection Neo stuff on Deviant Art. If someone could please direct me to the place this is all at...
yukiepants Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2007
Ah, I missed this lot!

Neo looks so irate, and as if he's trying to ignore the fact that Cirus is ogling his posterior.

Further, I am loving on Prime Axel's eye. There's something very Psycho Mantis's Punk Ass brother about his entire demeanour and look. I'm very fond of it. Plus, his fighter pilot's mask/muffler hybrid is fantastic.
demongirl78 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007

This is just what I was looking for
Much fanart to come from this

im the one who'll be in charge of the Perfection Neo club here on deviant (and im working on getting people to run a gaiaonline and myspace group, because more people need to know about this project, so it could reach the popularity it was at back when it was RMN)
and i wonder if i could use the picture of Neo there for the club icon?
they all rock, btw
shiinai Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2007
wonder why teh dude with the green sword isnt here?, i dont know if it is zero or not that i saw, cause there is no way it is related right?

it wanted to know if you are going to follow with these models and neo, I am very fan of you and it really wanted that you continue it, but I believe that nor desire you must have to do it, but serious very good that you do it (at least for my)

You are the master of character designs, sir. :salute:
MigBird Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2007
A machiney master-worker I tell you.
A shame your roboty creations get stapled to Rockman NEO, they're such great characters, awesome creations.
Every one of these characters is unique from the other completely, that's hard to do when creating an original "team" of characters.
Madean Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2006
looks graet
better looking then on the newgrouns flash

millerjsullivan Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2006
Nice. :) Hehe.. what/whom are they superior to? ;)
Uratoh Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2006
The influence is undeniable, but your art really sets them apart. It's like the make recognize some faces, but it's completely unrelated to the inspiration. Your art gives them PERSONALITY.
Ketsubara Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2006
They look even better now, Andrew !^^ New names, new colors, but the same characters in my heart, and many peoples who was on the project and was shocked by the sudden death of it !

But it's past and we all know the reason of this fall^^

Anyway, Nice android characters, especially Cirus, Crystal and Panic (I also view the 3 Superiors, they are also cool, you're really imaginative Andrew, keep the work going !

Oh, I fav this one, off course
artdragon1 Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2005
these robot kind of remind me of the old Mega man Bosses
Mike-Greenaway Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2005   General Artist
just by looking at this I can think of millions of different storylines that this cast could follow, I won't say anything since this post has already made me look stupid, I enjoy these characters and I was glad that those unruly fans that carried the megaman brand a little too far were put in their place, Prime shinobou, axel, and gideon are my personal favorites, and I hope that these guys get much more attention from you.

best of wishes on your future expeditions:+fav:

Wow now I feel like a total n00b for putting a comment about RMN on the front page. >_<

But yeah the character designs are amazing. Furthering my argument that AWD = The MAN
