Please download for a clearer, bigger image!

Street Fighter was and is a huge inspiration on my artwork. Growing up, the art of Akiman, Bengus and others inspired me to learn anatomy, character design, and how to portray power and focus in that uniquely Capcom way. In high school I maintained a Street Fighter website mostly as an excuse to collect and document all the Street Fighter artwork I could scour from the web.

After quitting my job around a year ago I wanted to "get back into training" with my art. I started drawing a few of the Street Fighter characters, deciding to focus on expressing each fighter's personality through shape and gesture rather than lighting or muscle detail. I averaged one character a day. I thought I'd just do my favourite characters, but ended up doing every playable character in an arcade edition of a 'main' series game (sorry, no Gill, Ingrid, Eagle!).

Nearing completion, I stopped, as the challenge wasn't there anymore. THEN, iam8bit gallery invited me to participate in their awesome Combo Attack tribute show to celebrate Street Fighter's 25th anniversary, providing the perfect excuse to finally finish the series and fix some of the characters that were bugging me (just like Capcom does).

The experience was a great chance to revisit and study amazing character designs, to drill down to the essence of these characters.

A big thanks to Jon Gibson and Noah Lane from iam8bit for making the poster possible. And thanks to Capcom for 25 years of art, inspiration and entertainment.

If you're looking for my previous posts of the character groups, I've put them in storage since half of them are out of date :P.

[That's Charlie Nash, Guile's bestie.  He supposedly died in the Alpha series in trying to stop M. Bison.]

Oh my god xD Your Hakan is just perfect!

Oh, and if you've got a moment, I would really appreciate if you could take a gander at my band, Father Mars. We're an up and coming band from Portland, Oregon and we play a very modern style funk/punk style. We just got our second demo EP up for listening and download. And you gotta support up-'n'-comer's, right? :D

Here's our Bandcamp page: [link]

And our Facebook page: [link]

Download, listen, like, whatever floats your boat

Thank you for your time <3

Though you should be bitchslapped for excluding Gill, and keeping fucking Oni: a repellant character who I want to boycott from the SF series.

Also, Sagat might have his scar now, but he's still got his Alpha shorts, and they're actually supposed to be red and blue like in SF2 and SF4.

Also, the download size is still not big enough. It's not clearer, or magnified enough to see the characters closely.

Thank god you have me to point out your mistakes, huh?

:iconken-wong:
ken-wong Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012
haha, you're totally right about sagat's shorts! i never noticed they were different. but did you notice i mistakenly drew ryu's gi as ripped? ken's gi is ripped, but not ryu's.

It's the opposite. In the original concept, Ryu's gi is ripped, while Ken's is not. You can see it in a lot of official artwork.

Nowadays they just draw both with ripped gi. *shrug*
