227 Virtua Fighter
Realistic 3-D Fighting!
Despite the name 2DForever, I do have a soft spot for Virtua Fighter. I remember being wowed by the 3D graphics in arcades and buying a Saturn for the game alone.
It didn’t quite look like this. I was inspired to draw some of the blocky characters from Virtua Fighter thanks to a fellow artist’s approach to clothing practice (see inspiration below).
To commemorate the fact that my Saturn died this Christmas (I will fix it!), I wanted to draw something from one of my favourite fighting games. Virtua Fighter appeals to the Japanese side of me… it’s super technical, incredibly fast paced and very arcadey!
