U-1 by 2dforever U-1 by 2dforever
I could of done it differently, I could of done it completely in my own style, but I love it so much I had to keep to the original.

For those lucky enough to avoid my blabbering this Christmas, I managed to finally see what Gitaroo Man was all about.

Guitar Hero is for wimps.

I kept the style used in the game - it's not too dissimilar if you've seen it before. I wanted to sketch out U-1 with his funny mouth then it turned into a full picture. Not very original of me, but as stated it was a quick one.

Sometimes, the quick ones end up becoming things like this. It's not wrong, though! I've wanted to play this game for the longest time, but I can't find it. Oh well... great work!

Wow! Gitaroo Man! I still haven't beaten this game. It's hard as shit. I'm stuck at the bones guys.

Great job, by the way. Lovin' your style. Which seems to change from piece to piece.

The wosrt thing about Gitaroo Man is when you lose, and you have to sit through the "Aww, you lose" bit everytime... It's only short, but really frustrating!

Anyway! Thanks for the comment :)

They NEED to make a second Gitaroo-Man game. (that game rocks)
Has anyone else try to do the second stage on Master? its difficult as hell.

Yeah, I managed to get through that one on Master after many many headaches and SERIOUSLY painful thumbs... you pretty much have to do it all 100% perfect - I really don't know how I did it... Gave up on the 3rd level...

I tried to explain to my friends that after playing Guitaroo Man, no rhythm game is too intense, but they didn't believe me.
It's hard to find people to play this game with since you can't really sit someone down in front of it and expect any kind of result in the next week or two.

Awesome job keeping that 3-D look in paint... I'm impressed with the fanart and it tickles me to see that dork getting some love.

...He's no dork... He is -- GitarooMan!!

Thanks for the comment, I've hardly got anywhere on the extreme difficulty after you complete the game - It's just too fast!

Second level. I nearly beat it once, but that's only because I was showing some friends how insanely impossible it is.
Who knows, maybe someday you'll get it? I've heard that somewhere in the world, there are people who can do it :o

(2d's ultimate power speech of "yes I can," "no you can't," actually tickled me pretty fierce. Validated watching all the cutscenes. xD)

Very cool, I'm glad you kept the style tho. It turned out well. Colors and blending look neat too. Its just fun how sharp his eyes are. That poor kid...

No doubt, U-1 and Gitaroo Man is such a fun and awesome styled game. I really wished they'd bring out something new with him for console, instead of the two extra stages on the PSP version. The legend must live on.
