Base concept design for a Mega Man X fan character called Yuga. He's the third prime class Maverick Hunter. (Get it? X, Y, Z?)
Though I'm sure it's going to be difficult to convince anyone, I made Yuga as a lost character from the beginning. He's the trainer of both X and Zero... Yeah I know, but considering how the X series story changes dramatically, it could work, no?
The story actually follows the events of Mega Man X8, after the defeat of Lumine, Axl is struck with an unknown complication, thus leading to distrust with the other maverick hunters, including Yuga. Axl is then taken by two mysterious newcomers, forcing Yuga to take matters since the situation has become worse as they announce plans to make Axl the new leader and sole heir to the Reploid Supremacy. or... something like that, I dunno...
Just saying, I give a lot of flack against the X series, but every once in awhile something sparks and I come up with something... The design obviously needs work, but I hope to dabble with him in the future.
Feel free to draw Yuga if you like. He IS a fan character.
Despite the long hair proving his "bad-assery" he has two swords, each which can transform back and forth from blade to blaster
