I’m a sucker for awesome art, so when I saw Mr. lariat’s entry for Capcom’s Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 art contest, I knew it was an instant win!
Here’s what Capcom producer Ryota Niitsuma had to say about Mr. lariat’s drawing which took the grand prize (a signed limited run poster for the game by manga artist Yusuke Tamura):
The results are based on votes from core members of the R&D, art and marketing/PR teams at Capcom Japan. This artist incorporated the theme of Marvel vs Capcom skillfully into his artwork and it was very well received by our staff, so he is the winner. The quality of the artwork is so good that we can use it as-is for PR and marketing!
