Check out this spectacular art from fighting game fans!
Welcome back to Friday Night Fan Art! Tonight we’ll pit the poster girls from two big fighting franchises against each other: Street Fighter’s Chun-Li, and The King of Fighters’ Mai Shiranui! These ladies have developed a sort of mascot rivalry, especially since facing each other in the Capcom vs. SNK titles. We’ll be featuring the work of many different DeviantArt artists below; you can decide which femme fatale fights the fiercest.
Since Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, Chun-Li has been widely accepted as the “first lady of fighting games,” a symbol of both strength and beauty.
SNK’s fiery Mai Shiranui is definitely one of the most prominent faces for The King of Fighters series, thanks in no small part to her sex appeal. She actually got her start way back in Fatal Fury.
Chrissy-Tee works with the lighting and poses on character models from various games to create new fan renders; getting their hands on some models from The King of Fighters XIV has resulted in some new images that help show off how detailed the KOFXIV character models actually are. Here’s Alice, and the meme-worthy “fingerguns” Kula:
Also, because it wouldn’t be right to end without another picture of Guilty Gear Xrd’s Baiken, here’s one by 人斬り Battousai!:
Finally had a minute to really just draw Baiken~ ❤️ pic.twitter.com/SNvym6CG4H
