Another dip into obscure/forgotten characters, this one is Chintai, a mid-level bad guy character from the NES version of Double Dragon. Hespecializes in Kung Fu and throwing you into the air when you try to ground attack him. I wanted to use this as an opportunity to play around with the watercolor tools in Manga Studio 5, as I had mainly been using the oil paint tools up to this point.
And just in case it wasn't clear from previous posts, I kind of love manga-style line-based motion blur.
Lately, I've taken to drawing obscure video game characters from the 80's and early 90s because why not? I like to call it Fan Art for Forgotten Characters. This character is Aska, a female ninja from the 1993 fighting game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters aka TMNT: Mutant Warriors. Aska is an original character made specifically for the game because ... I guess Konami felt like the game needed a Japanese character?
As fighting games go, it's pretty good though it probably appeared a little too late in the 90s fighting game boom. One thing that always puts a smile on my face is that Shredder has a special move that sounds like he's yelling, "More Pushups!"
