Blossom by 2dforever Blossom by 2dforever

If you follow me on Twitter you would of seen this girl once before in sprite form. This girl (of no current name) is a character I invented for a side project. She’s a fairly generic Japanese fighter, but I like her regardless… and with the Cherry Blossom season just finishing I was inspired to draw her!

I wanted to do this in a cel-shaded style initially but I just can’t help myself but paint when it comes to doing faces. It’s really nice to paint in finer detail on facial expressions… and yet, here she is with a poker face.

I noticed something - she has realistic muscle mass and wearing an actual non-skimpy, somewhat pragmatic fighting costume!

:D Thank you! I'm really glad you noticed that in particular. If I make characters I want them to be just plain cool. Not some eye candy doll... I guess this is also a tester though - I bet if I uploaded the same pose with frailer arms, bigger boobs on show and a softer face it would get more favourites. Oh well...

It makes a change to the eight stone high school/college aged girls.

A fellow Bristolian, huh? Do you go to the RWA from time to time?

(sorry for the slow reply)
The museum? Honestly haven't been in there for years... I should go revisit it though, it's great in there. Why'd you ask?

Well I saw a uploaded photo of your life drawing over on Twitter and you made the life model into a strange caricature.

reminds me of the striking presence of Kasumi Todo, but much more graceful and beautiful.  Since Kasumi is full of sass and proverbs lol

Thanks! I know what you mean about her looking like Kasumi Todo... it's annoying as Kasumi basically wears traditional clothing and that's what I wanted to capture here - hense the similarity! Oh well, I prefer mine ;)

Thanks for the comment!

i really prefer yours as well. Kasumi todo looked bland and didnt really stand out design wise. 
They had an interesting idea about "Passing along the torch" but she just never really picked off, kinda like Rock Howard. I guess a continuation of both their respective series or more involvement in the KOF tourney coulda boosted em or better designs XD dammit snk, hire this guy.

I agree with everything until you got upto Rock Howard... woah there, totally have a man crush on the guy, he's much better than Kasumi ;)
I joke... kind of. Back to the point, it's a shame how SNK have kind of disappeared aside from KOF13. Which is an ok game, but they used to be so prolific. At least there's lots of goodies in the back catalogue!
