    ROUND #202:: The Ultimate World Tournament Fighter

    DESCRIPTION

    The Ultimate World Tournament Fighter!

    The worlds toughest fighters from all ages and all over the world are

    will come out on top?

    Design a fighter based on a culture or country. He/she can be from any

    England? Its up to you to design the best fighter!

    Some inspiring ref:

    I'm thinking something a little like this.

    Name:  CHOW#202_STOPH.jpg
Views: 2589
Size:  155.0 KB

    In the late 1940's, Jerome T. Hawkins was a young American man suffering from severely debilitating and unsightly birth defects, leaving him with a misshapen head, stumps for feet, and an atrophied hand. He had it tough from the beginning, and found solace in pulling the wings off of flies with his good hand, and plotting revenge. Dark, morbid revenge.

    After persuading his 6th carer to commit suicide with his manipulative words and twisted thoughts, he was locked up in a ward for the criminally insane. Without a body to back up his brain, he was all but helpless.

    That is, until, he was put into solitary for convincing a young female nurse that she needed to reduce her wrists to ribbons for looking at him with distaste and judgement (such were his powers of persuasion).

    Solitary was, in this case, an old boiler room-cum-storage closet, and in it were all the makings of a mind-control device. An old wheelchair, a set of modified 2-way headphones, a few simple inputs on the makeshift joystick and console, and he would have his subject at his complete and utter disposal. He bid his time until the biggest and meanest brute of an orderly came to do "obs", and within seconds the man was under his control.

    Breaking from the ward, Hawkins made straight for the darkest and most depraved streets and neighbourhoods the city could offer him. With the help of black market surgeons, and a bit of persuasive talk, Hawkins found himself tinkering about inside his ward's skull, making numerous tweaks and adjustments and improved response time significantly - reducing lag to nothing, tuning host with parasite perfectly.

    He was soon introduced to the underground fight clubs, which in turn led to his discovery of his ability to easily dispatch any opponent without as much as a scratch on his own deformed body. This made him a powerful adversary, because as soon as his brain melded with another's brawn, there was very little that could stop either of them.
    will most likely change a lot about the design, but unlike #201 I've started straight away

    Great round !
    Stoph : I really like your draw. Your ease with line is impresssve.

    My wip (very less potic :p) Concept : a warrior with a living armor technology/symbiotic who took the time to "grow" with survivor exceptional. The fusion of core technology and core living have created a beast with the intuition of a man and the reflexes of a machine without latency.

    Please all Google some Bengus or Akiman images. Those guys did a lot of Street Fighter and Darkstalkers designs and next to the fact that they're awesome designs they're also 'videogame' designs. Iconic, full of character with a really strong silhouette.

    EDIT: Here are my first thumbs. For years I've been missing some kind of voodoo priestess character in a Capcom fighter so that's gonna be my take. I'm starting from a silhouette to get that right first and then get some design issues worked out. The bones behind the head, the pouches with potion to distract the opponent and the magic voodoo-skull/orb as a projectile weapon. :p Lot of things to cover and more to exaggerate as well, but here's a start. This is gonna be an awesome round

    EDIT2: Here's a rough paint of the character. Having fun

    Pixel I like that!! Nice powerful 'look at my groin' female stance!! LOVE IT!! Although not sure how she is balancing in that position with her heels up instead of flat on the floor? Loving the facepaint too.

    Could this ultimate fighter be a famous warrior from history or legend?

    This is an absolutely fantastic theme. So many possibilities!!

    Stinger - I think the pose works really well for the theme, and I love the way you're emphasizing different parts of the anatomy. As for the hair... well I like wacky hair, so I'm probably diggin the first style.

    Lodin - love the energy and action you've got going. eye flows through the composition very smoothly, and I think the fact that you've included his opposition will strengthen the illustration quite a bit. awesome so far!

    ArtByManon: Thx! And yeah, you're right. Balance looked a bit shoddy. So I redrew the pose in a different angle to make her look a bit more grounded. Still have to work out some design issues, but this is a better foundation methinks

    Should we do player 2 alternate costumes too?

    Anyway here's my first concept: Brosephus, from ancient Greece. He's totally wicked, I'm not even gonna lie bro. Also, he somehow managed to pop the collar of a toga.

    Quick sketch to design costume elements, definitely not a final design or pose by any means.

    Still deciding on making him Italian or a Jamie Yager look-alike.

    @ stoph - hahahahahaha! weird, right?

    @ mordus - thank you for completing that.

    ---

    some silhouette runs. most of these are based off an idea involving a sword with a demon on the hilt that possess the arm that uses it, hence the repeated demon arms in most of these.
