188 Small She Devil
A while back, there was a competition set by Udon comics, known for the creation of the more recent Street Fighter comics, to have your artwork displayed in fanart tribute book. Pretty cool, eh? However, clearly not stalking the internet enough I missed out and blamed everyone but myself for missing it.
With a good response to the SF book, Udon then posted another competition – same vein, but with DarkStalkers instead. I’ve never been a huge DS fan, but didn’t want to miss out either way…
However I find out that my piece didn’t make it into the book. Bah. The annoying part is I don’t know why I didn’t make the book – there could be a possibility that Anita (shown here) is not considered a DS character and therefore automatically disqualified. I could try to fool myself into thinking this, but judging by the calibre of disappointed artists that also weren’t selected, I’d say quality was certainly an issue too. Ah well… Didn’t like the Darkstalkers anyway… grumble grumble.
As for the actual picture, this is Anita, the loveable little freak, doing her scary finger pointing most prominently seen in Marvel vs Capcom (see inspiration). I really liked the way this turned out, using quite simple colouring (it’s very two toned) and not trying anything too fancy with it.
Still, glad it’s all over so I can show the piece and carry on playing more Capcom games.
