This was one of the games I've had most fun with as a kid (10-12 years old). Me and friends would run over to my place at lunch break and play it back and forth.
So, although I'm not hugely into this series now, it's really a highlight in my collection, especially in my memories of playing with friends.
Street fighter has been pushed so far into exaggerated and distorted styles (which I love), I really don't have the skills to do anything new in that direction. So I thought, what about going the other way? What if there was something like... a decent Hong Kong martial arts film that started it all?
As with the other game-inspired work I've done, I wanted to really go back to the basics of the version I had (SNES SFII - World Warrior), channel the impressions I had from playing, and try to mix in details that could make this more realistic take plausible.
One thing that confused me as the characters turned more anime and exaggerated was that I couldn't imagine their faces on a real person of their supposed ethnicity/nationality. So to work that out was a nice challenge.
I hope you like it!
(I went with this version of the game because it's the one I had, but man, times have changed, there was only one woman in 12 characters! I'll be sure to pick a more balanced title for my coming fan art)
