It’s pretty common to see video game art based on Mega Man. Example: These two versions of the iconic blue bomber made entirely with beads [via technabob]:

Pretty cool, eh? Yeah, but not too exotic. Beads? Yawn! Those things can’t save you from a sword. And, honestly, we like to judge art based solely on how well they will guard against medieval weapons.

Luckily, this Mega Man 2 chain mail art looks sturdy enough to take to the next Renaissance Faire [via Geekologie]:

Well, it’s about time someone made some video game chain mail art. Enough of the sissy beads and cutesy plushes, crafters! Wear a pair! Preferably made of metal.
