's Street Fighter 20th Anniversary Tribute
book is almost here.
Finally I'm posting this for all to see. 'The Vitruvian Beast' was created for the Street Fighter Tribute Book competition. Happy to say this was accepted. I went for an unexpected concept for the Street Fighter universe. Which is probably the reason it was chosen. Obviously this is based on 'The Vitruvian Man' by Leonardo DaVinci. I also have a Spider-Man shirt like this so I may have been wearing the day I drew this but can't remember.
Blanka is one of my favourites from the game basically because he was a monster. I used to play as Chun Li a lot too because I liked her kick and she's hot but that's neither here nor there.
The writing up the top is from Blanka's ending video from Street Fighter II. "JIMMY...? ARE YOU MY LONG LOST SON, JIMMY"
"WHO ARE YOU? WHY WOULD I BE YOUR SON? MY NAME'S BLANKA"
"MY SON WAS LOST IN AN AIRPLANE CRASH OVER BRAZIL WHEN HE WAS ONLY A LITTLE BOY"
"WAIT! THAT ANKLET... I GAVE THAT TO YOU ON YOUR BIRTHDAY!"
The writing at the bottom is just a list of characters from the games.
