So things have been a bit quiet lately due to a number of things, actual paying jobs have been taking precedent and all the concepts and designs I’ve worked on for this site haven’t been turning out the way I’d hoped. So after taking a break for a little bit and recharging the batteries I started looking for new ideas, and my answer came with playing ridiculous amounts of Street Fighter 4 on my iPod (which is an awesome game app I might add!). The idea came to me to try the idea of combining mediums, and having been reading a lot of books on Disney animation and principles lately something in my mind went ‘What would you get if you cross Street Fighter with Disney?’. The answer is a new series I’m starting called ‘Disney Fighter’, in which I’m gonna Street Fighter-ise a bunch of characters from the house of mouse.
First up, Cinderella. This was a lot of fun to do coz it gave me an excuse to redo her backstory to turn her into a ninja warrior. I looked at all the promo artwork for Street Fighter 4 and tried to emulate the style of the illustrations whilst also trying to keep the look of the Disney character. I’ve never really tried doing Manga style artwork before so this was a bit challenging at first but I think it’s not too bad for a first effort. Done in Painter and Photoshop in about 6-7 hours. If anyone has any particular Disney characters they’d like to see Street Fighter-ise put your suggestions in the comments.
