232 Special Team ’97
The left overs
This is for the King of Fighters (KOF) Art Tribute over at DeviantArt. I chose the tackle the “Special Team” – i.e: the left overs bundled into a team.
I always liked the strange dynamic between these. Ryuji Yamazaki (left) and Billy Kane (right) are thugs for hire, while Blue Mary (middle) is an undercover officer just following their tracks. I’d imagine she’d often have to deal with the other two fighting, so this was born.
I liked the idea for this, but it didn’t come to life how I wanted it to. If all my artworks were my children, and if this one ran off to the circus… I wouldn’t be upset.
I wanted to try some old school comic-style art, but I just don’t really love it for some reason. Oh well, onto the next one!
I was inspired by the fantastic promotional artwork for KOF '97 as it really shows the character of each of them:
