wow! thank you so very much! I've always wanted to sculpt nice big statues of most of these characters for my own personal collection. It would be nice to make them the way I like to see them. I happen to be a big fan of the way they all look in sf4 as well as 3rd strike. Most people don't realize, these things have to go through approvals and sometimes its hard to just say ok and change whatever they ask you to but its the reality of it. I'm a hired hand and its their product, not mine.
wow thank you for a more-than-one-word response. I really appreciate your work. I tried sculpting and I repainted a few SF resin models from back in the day. The models is no easy business. Especially the faces I have the utmost respect. Plus I'm a huge SF fan, so to see this kind of treatment is lovely as hell. I LOVE the art style of SF3, I think that's the best art we've experienced from SF. It'd be nice to see big statues with the faces in the SF3 style. It also sucks that some dont get approved. You always wonder why
Its the least I could do, if someone takes the time to appreciate my work and write such nice comments.. Ussually, I'm hit and run on here though so noone feels too neglected. I tend to be a very busy person and get hit with lots of crazy tight deadlines working sometimes 48 hours straight with no sleep...(Just came off one actually). But I do love me some street fighter! Its the reason I got into sculpting even. The very first thing I made was a bust of Sagat (that I won't dare show!) I used to manage a video game store and all we did was play third strike. I am also in love with Ikeno's artwork and there's a guy on here that goes by the name of Kandoken..as far as I'm concerned, he is my #1 official sf artist. I have always wanted to sculpt Dudley and Oro from 3s they have such fun faces lots of character...I'm sure some day...
For what is this figure for? Just regular SFIV stuff or for SFxT? All I know is that no matter what Capcom's going to have a hell of a time doing lots of stuff with the franchise this year! (25th Anniversary! Yet another game that has hit the grand mark, joining Donkey Kong and Mario...it's a bit like the Simpsons, really, not much ever lasts that long!)
actually this was from like 2008 or so when sf iv first came out...they did a bunch of them and were never released. They went along with the figures that came with the Collector's edition game-(Ryu and C. Viper)
