Street Fighter by cabal-art Street Fighter by cabal-art
As I was looking for ideas for new illustrations, I started sketching a few characters from the Street Fighter 2 video-game. The sketches turned out fine but the characters were a little too simple and I ended up going with a few more challenging projects.

A few weeks later I saw the trailer for Street Fight IV which got me the motivation I needed to go back to the sketches. As my favorite character, Ryu had to be in the illustration and I chose the intro sequence against Sagat from the animated Street Fighter movie. Like the everlasting fights between Ken and Ryu, that sequence is probably one of the most iconic and defining moments of the Street Fighter storyline.

As stated above Ryu and Sagat were relatively easy to draw, the real challenge came with the background. I really wanted to capture some of the look from both the intro sequence and the new trailer, but both required the use of clouds and a stormy grass field... I already knew from previous illustrations that vector primitives would take me only so far for clouds so I cheated: I used a raster layer. The rest however (aside from the logo) is pure vector so, hopefully, nobody will hold a grudge :)

Enjoy!
