the use of color and lighting are great.
they create a great mood.
the style is clean as usual as well.

looks tight man.

oh man i really love these images, keep em coming! although there's something off about sakura's face. in the concept art she's usually ridiculously cute, but she looks super angry in this image.

08-01-2003, 04:49 PM

08-01-2003, 05:00 PM

I love sakura!! :D

Her face seems more manly than usual tho, again another GREAT scene!! :beer:

08-01-2003, 05:17 PM
Great sense of depth. :)

08-01-2003, 06:39 PM
Excellent :applause:

08-01-2003, 11:54 PM
thank you very much!!
i wanted her a little more 'involved' in the battle than she usually is in the videogame ; that's why the 'angry' face. she's fighting, after all! ;)

Like the lighting.................

08-02-2003, 01:54 AM

08-02-2003, 02:01 AM
I'm so jealous, this is really impressive. Would love a walkthrough.

08-02-2003, 02:03 AM
This is great!! amazing... the camera angle, and the sense of depth are top notch!!:buttrock:

No crits at all, i really dig SF.:applause:

08-02-2003, 02:34 AM
What I really like about it is how there's so much lighting effect to it, but it all ends up looking so natural in the end that you barely notice.

Mixing up cartoony-ness with that kind of realism is a big plus in my book :thumbsup:

SAKURAAA ! my favorite character from street fighter !

08-02-2003, 02:45 AM
Very cool!!!


08-02-2003, 03:01 AM
Very awesome concept. it looks like she's fighting Guy in her dorm room. But since Guy is one o' my favorites, it begs the question: Why is he in Sakura's dorm room?

The Shadows on Sakura's face and body would be a little darker as the form turns away from the light of the fireball. The warm tone of the background behind Sakura could be toned down a bit so not to compete with the focus. But this is all photorealistic lighting nitpicking. Other than that it's pretty sweet. I really like the composition. How long do you normally spend on a color sketch or illustration? I'm guessing from your post that this type of effort isn't the norm.

08-02-2003, 01:23 PM
top notch :beer:
nothing else to add really :thumbsup:

I find it a little funny to look at. they seem to be fighting over some redicolous thing, like who took the last coke or something like that. it might not have been the meaning (didn't really read all the new posts) but for me it adds a new sort of feeling to the artwork.

The angle and perspective in this picture is fantastic. Excellent work.

This is twice you've made front-page. And in less than two weeks. Keep this up and you've got a great career ahead of you.

08-02-2003, 03:20 PM
OMG SAKURA!!!!!! My fav SF character!!! Very nice artwork. :D

08-02-2003, 03:59 PM
love the movement in the poses, lighting and color too! usually try to crit at least one thing, but here I just had to go fanboy.

08-02-2003, 04:49 PM
Always been a big fan of your work bengal, keep it up, and give big kisses to Ornicar and Sparth ;)

08-02-2003, 08:31 PM
excekkent work very beautiful :drool:

08-02-2003, 09:55 PM
my god.....

you just keep on raising the bar dont yah! how do you do it?

i would love to see a walkthrough of one of your creations!


08-03-2003, 02:41 AM
The only thing I noticed was that the armband he has is the same colour as skin?

08-17-2003, 12:35 PM
Wee bit behind on everything these days, but I'm catching back up :) These are becoming popular heh, the perspective and compostion in your works are always refreshing to look at, love the subtle color pallete also, very nice.

I realy can't believe that one got an award. It looks more like a sketch that took a bit more time than planned. I realy see nothing that surprises me in color, compositing or technique.


08-24-2003, 04:23 PM
NIce but her face looks manly :(

06-27-2004, 05:12 PM

Excellent work. Maybe she could look a little more feminin.
