Outstanding Akuma (Gouki) Collection

I've seen Street Fighter collections thru many design/art blogs , but I never seen a collection of the most insane and kickass character of the series: Akuma (also known as Gouki in Japan). So I picked some amazing illustrations of this anti-hero. When I was a kid, I remember when I used to play Street Fighter with my pals, everybody were always using the most famous characters like Ryu, Ken and Chun Li, but I always rather use Akuma. Though he had almost the same moves as Ryu and Ken, he was (is) way more stronger. shalomone Calvinclyke UdonCrew nefar007 acir Goretoon no26 kikicianjur Shinobuzu darkcomartist Akuma has red hair, wears prayer beads around his neck, a charcoal gray dogi and a piece of twine around his waist in lieu of an obi. The kanji 'ten' (?) - meaning "sky/heaven", (all in the spiritual sense) - can be seen on his back when it appears during certain win animations. Shin Akuma's appearance is very similar to Akuma's; for example, in the Street Fighter Alpha series, Shin Akuma had a purple gi instead of a gray one and marginally lighter tone. Akuma's introduction in Super Street Fighter II Turbo stemmed from the development team's desire to introduce a "mysterious and really powerful" character, with his status as a hidden character within the game resulting from later discussions (Wikipedia).

His sole reason for living is to challenge great fighters from around the world and improve upon his skills. The deaths of his challengers come as a result of testing their abilities as well as his own; therefore, he would not fight (much less kill) anyone he doesn't consider a fair match. His personal nature fits more for the profile of an anti-hero (Wikipedia). spadjm UdonCrew kandoken UdonCrew TUS monk-art Boss Logic wlfeng

Kickass Street Fighter Illustrations

I cannot wait for the day I'll finally buy me a video game (which one I don't know) and will be finally able to play that sweet Street Fighter IV game. This series is a true classic... I remember playing the arcade game in 1993 or so... and was pretty fun! So, yes, I got a little nostalgic about it, and just had to find some trully kickass illustrations... and yeah, I did it. These are totally awesome, the artists are amazing... and I guess that checking these will be little fun for everyone that loves the series. Also, if you like these, you should really check out each artist's page for more of their work. I hope you all enjoy these.

The Best Ryu Illustrations

A few weeks ago we had a really awesome post fulfilled with illustrations of one of the greatest female characters from the games: Chun-Li. It was a big hit, and one of suggestions after that was to have more of those. Deal! The best character featured is haddoken freak, Ryu! This guy is one tough dude, and surely a favorite, between all the Street Fighter characters! I've went through DeviantART and found a bunch of illustrations, but selected only the best of them! I really hope you enjoy these! And who would like to be featured here next? Sagat? Blanka? Tell us! Cheers. ;) Art: Juan Manuel Art: Jose Johann Jaro Art: Mark Anthony Tadura Art: Kael Art: Joe Vriens Lines: Fooray, Colors: KFoster Art: satanasov Art: artauxeo Arnold Tsang gammon Steve Jo Chen Jo Chen Lines: Joe Ng, Colors: kandoken Art: MagnozZ Art: Mart Lines: Fooray, Colors: Joshua Ravello Art: AGNakamura

The Best Chun-Li Illustrations

One of the best thing about video games is the legion of fans. There are people so fanatic about some games that they'll just do anything to show their love for it. Street Fighters fans in general love Chun-Li, and thank God for those who are awesome illustrators, and just deliver us some eyecandy pieces! There's not much to say about Chun-Li, the only thing to know right away is that she's totally famous for her legs, and that If you keep fooling around too much, she'll freaking Whirl Wind Kick you right under your nose. Anyways, some awesome artists have painted her, and here is a selection of the best! But if I missed any, please drop us a link! And please, visit these guys portfolios! Hope you enjoy, these!
