New Sketches

It's been a while since my last entry. Halloween and boring relatives has kept the house pretty cooped up for the last couple of weeks. I finally have a free room to work again, though it's still not my own room, I don't know how long they're going to stay but I can't wait to get my room back!
I was pretty disappointed with the way the last painting turned out, I kinda took a break away from the Wacom and turned to more traditional mode of art: sketching. There's nothing more soothing than simple black and white lines.
The following are series of character reimagining sketches of your favorite video game STREET FIGHTER. I got the idea from artist Marko Djurdjevic who did series of X-MEN revamps (link) and so I took on this new project to give your favorite STREET FIGHTER character a complete makeover, taking into consideration the newest fashion trends and questions like what would these ferocious world warriors be doing when they're not busy beating each other up, I mean fighting isn't their only lifestyle, don't you think?
I'm working merely from memory here, it's been too long since I last played the game, I may have to start fishing on the Net for ref pics of other characters especially the hulky ones like Zangief and DeeJay. Here are the first set of sketches, hope you recognize them. More will be on the way.
