M.Bison her Entry
While widely known within the Street Fighter universe as the world’s most powerful dictator, M. Bison really is something to be feared.
Claiming to be immortal due to a mysterious energy known as psycho power, I thought him perfect for my muse.
Within almost all of the Street Fighter series, I have used M. Bison and overall find him very fun (Of course, my main is Vega, but I have always had a soft spot for Mister Tall, Dark and Menacing.) and fell in love with his personality and character design.

“The terror is overwhelming, isn’t it? There is no end to this nightmare!”
– M. Bison, Street Fighter IV

Of course, M. Bison’s encounter with Akuma (Gouki in Japan) proved that even immortality had it’s limits. What was left of Bison after their encounter was not a pretty sight and it disheartened me to see that no one to my knowledge had created a piece to document this moment.

It had been on my mind for a while and with the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter coming up, it was definitely my opportunity to show that.

I really wanted to experiment with colours and blending with this piece and aside a few shaky lines, I think I started to get it toward the end.
The toughest part was the blood and scratches, which I’m still not too pleased about. But it taught me a lot on the way.

It originally looked very different from this since in the original, he was awake and it was just straight on. But it seemed boring so to add a little bit of atmosphere and depth, I decided to change up the perspective.

The original lines were done in PaintToolSAI while the colour was done in Photoshop CS5 with a tablet.
