This is a fan art by Tom Waterhouse of the fictional character Ryu from the Street Fighter fighting game series by Capcom


Tom`s own description of his work:

“This is a speed-paint of Ryu, I had a simple idea in my head that had to get out. It was originally going to be Akuma, but then I’ve always preferred Evil Ryu, so it went down that route. As it came towards the end I took out all Evil Ryu elements to the piece as it just didn’t need them – Ryu’s damn cool as he is.

I decided to make it black and white with the red headband because of the special colour-creation modes on Capcom vs SNK. I always made Evil Ryu all black apart from the reds showing out – his eyes and headband were the only visible part to him. So the headband element stayed in here.”
