Hi people. I have a suggestion to the guys who draw. I was thinking… Why not redesign the sf1 characters by ourselves? Hm, ourselves? I said ourselves? Hm, I meant you, who know how to draw and paint so perfectly. I think that first we could suggest some personality of the character. After a discussion about how they would look like, somebody could draw them.
I think that Lee and Retsu don’t have anything to change. I supose they have a great look. But Mike, Joe and Geki must change too much. Geki not that much, also, but he must have something that makes him different from other ninjas.
About Joe, I think about hard changes. First of all, I think about a hair like Beckham’s, you know? Or maybe the hair that he owns now, because I’ve read he has something militar… And a militar couldn’t have a punk or almost-punk hair… Well, what do you think? Then, I think it would be cool if he used a mustache, almost a goatee. On hands, a lot of rings. I’ve been thinking about piercing and earings, but I don’t think it would be that cool. Besides, I thought about the same red pant and a black waistcoast. And, then, black boots instead of tenis.
About Mike, first of all Capcom must say if he is or isn’t Mike Bison/Balrog. If not, I have some ideas. He wouldn’t use box gloves, but would use the same strips Sagat use on hands. I think his hair could be grey-headed in a short cut. I thought about puttin in him some big cutlets. I thought also about using in hands that iron instrument fighters use on the four fingers, you know…? I dont remember that shit’s name…
But that’s it. What do you think, guys? Let’s go, suggest something.
Sure, it’d be cool to draw SF1 characters, but I have no idea how most of them look, you got any pics?
I have a Capcom Early Games art book, I’ll scan the portraits of the SF1 characters when I get home if no one can find them online. One thing about redesigning them… Dan’s dad was killed by Sagat in this tournament, so would he be like a zombie or something?
Hey, guys, there’s a great site about sf1 pics: http://www.slateman.net/sf/art/sf/
Hope you like it. And… about Dan… I don’t know, but I wonder how would Go Hibiki’s be like…
Ha ha Birdies white. This is good reference thanks! Now I just gotta decide who I’m gonna draw.
He was sick! Really!
And Mike from SF1 is NOT M. Bison/Balrog from SF2. This has already been said by Capcom.
Wahh wahh Warzard character artwork! Great site.:bgrin:
It’s an interesting idea, but as you’re aware, more than half of the characters have already been redesigned by Capcom. So…
I was thinking of drawing Birdie Vomiting or something. Or hungover.
Dan’s father makes a couple of appearances in Pocket Fighter. Kinda severe looking with a goatee. I think.
Munta that’s a wicked idea! Let me know if you’re gonna go thru with it because I’ll steal it if you arn’t.
Not exactly a redesign, but I did a pic of Retsu today, so here it is,
Man your retsu is great!
My Drunk puking Birdie idea has ryu about to fight him and Birdie with bottles of beer lying around saying: “Hold on a second, then BLEUUUWWHHHHH!!!” (Pukeage)Then his aplha 3 Win quote. Something like “He was “sick” on that day” or something.
I don’t mind if you do your own drunk hungoyer Birdie deal. I’d love to see it in your bitchinly awesome style. Just cread me with the idea.
That’s a great pic, man! I’d like so much to draw like you do. I’m practicing, at all… In a decade I do like you, haha.
That Retsu is bloody good my chap. Goin for the NG approach I see :bgrin:
Thanks, but whats the NG approach?
SF III New Generation of course.:shy:
Ahh the the New Generation, of course! As awsome as those pics are I actually wasn’t influenced by them, just thought it’d be cool if I left a black outline in.
looks good DZ Esp like the colours.
for some reason I couldn’t view the page at first, but now I can.
been a while man… good to see you popping in
I’ll post here as long as srk is alive. :bgrin: Tho in terms of art I doubt I can contribute as much as I used to.
This is actually very interesting! I may do one of them in 3D if I have time… I’ll keep an eye on this thread.
