I just did these for Sabertooth Games Streetfighter and Darkstalkers series. They were hard for me due to the inherent comic book nature of the material and I hope I didn't overcompensate by making them more realistic than fits the series.
Akuma was my 3rd digital painting and Victor was my 4th. I am still figuring things out so these were done with a minimum of layers and using only the default round brush. I hope to get more fancy as I learn photoshop.
