“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

Actually, I don't know if any of these characters from Street Fighter actually use that attack? Maybe Sakura? I don't know. I have no business drawing nor coloring this image since I'm not a SF fan. But I figured anything to get me out my my comfort zone of just drawing superhero-type stuff all day can only help? Okay, more later.

Oh, and I don't know if that over-saturation of color is on my screen of it's really how it looks. I haven't calibrated this monitor since I got it so it's always a surprise when I transfer stuff from the Cintiq to this thing. Oh well - I'll get it right someday.

Wow. That's beautiful, Eric. I love those thick Chun Li legs. I like this outfit a lot better than her other regular one.
Fantastic colors dude. I don't think it's too saturated at all. It gives you a nice dusk-like atmosphere.

Not a fan of SF? Meh... me neither. Been loving the last few installements of the VF series. Plus I'm more a fan of the ol' SNK fighters.

Wonderful piece, Eric. Wish I knew what the writing at the bottom said :)
