Week 4 belongs to Sagat.

This weeks addition is Sagat. Like I have mentioned before I have been experimenting with new processes, and so far I like where it is going. This particular character is extremely stylized. And when it comes to Sagat it has to be just to let you know this man is menacing. Due to a friends advice I started posting on the SRK fan art forums. He told me make sure to post the SF images where real fans could appriciate the work. Which ... makes all the sense in the world.
And here is a little extra this week. One of my favorite novels of the recent day was Anansi's Boys by Neil Gaiman. This is a portrait of Anansi based on his description in the book. If you are familiar with African folklore you would know exactly who this character is. He is a character full of mischief and some of the greatest stories ever told.

Why is her foot on fire?

Here is one of the new characters called C. Viper in her alt costume. To me she is an amalgam of a few SNK characters but I'm not complaining. When I showed this to a close friend of mine the first reaction was .."Why is her foot on fire?". I made me laugh .. and at the same time it made me think. Enjoy, and make sure to check back next week for another installment of my little Street Fighter "tribute".

This Dude is a Beast!!

It is Monday, and therefor I have the second installment of my Geek-tastic project for you all. The Boxer was my second choice for my latest en devour. I love this new look (even though it is a mix up of Apollo Creed and T.J Combo ) because it adds another dimension to the characters. We have seen 25 years of the same old costumes and the near gear as well as the graphic and tactical update breathes an new life into the classic fighting game. Like the title says this dude is a BEAST , and to prove it take a look at the following video. About 37 seconds into the vid he unleashes one massive combo.

Aaaaand I think I am done geeking out for the day. So enjoy the piece and enjoy the video. Don't forget to check back for the weekly installments, there is a lot more where this came from.

Any one that knows me well enough has an idea of much of a Street Fighter fan I am. Just recently Street Fighter IV has hit a select few arcades in the United States, and I had a chance to play it. In all honesty... I completely GEEKED out over the game. So much in fact that I decided to do a series of pieces depicting the SF characters in their new alternate costumes. So each week I will attempt to post a new installment.

Also, I was recently asked to put together a few "sketches" of what a modern day detective office would look like, and I figured I would post them here.

A Duenne on my Back... and a few other updates.

Here is a piece that I did that will eventually be part of a series I am working on. For those of you who have been keeping tabs, the creepy little creature should look familiar.

Also, the new issue of The Coup has gone live. Above is and illustration I did for one of the articles which talked about Countries that are now banning Reggae artists from performing due to their homophobic lyrics. Sadly I was informed that this would be the last issue of the Coup for quite some time.

Last but not least, Chop Shop Shapes will be brewing with talented artists once again starting next Sunday, so stay tuned.
