Akuma :: Chibi Raging Demon
Today, on this fine Monday evening, I would like to share a drawing I did of Akuma from Street Fighter.
This is one bad ass design for a character. The way he looks says so much about him. He is powerful, angry and full of rage. I love how his hair resembles flames. I'm aware that I am geeking out on this design even as I type this!
So, drawing a cute chibi version of him is kind of tough, cause on one hand you are drawing something kind of cute and fun, while on the other hand you still want to keep the aspects of the design that tell us so much about his character, which in this case are not so cute and friendly. It's not my place to say weather I have succeded or failed in finding the right balance of cute and bad ass, but this is what I was going for.
SKILL! Go to 2:37 to see what the fuss is about. I love SFIII.
So, there you have it... my chibi Akuma.
