Ken Masters (Alpha) by TixieLix Ken Masters (Alpha) by TixieLix
Soooo when was the last time I drew some Street Fighter? Like 1/4 yr ago heh..  I rarely get motivated to draw certain characters and Ken is one of them (something to do with him being my husband's main and fav... urrrr....) but I just saw Assassin's Fist recently and o. m. g. I was just so impressed.  It actually made me care a bit more about these characters who aren't anywhere near in my favs :iconclapplz:

Went with Ken coz I found him more relatable out of the lot in that series.  I tried really, really hard to capture his raw, fiery spirit, which is what I think his fiery shoryuken represents in contrast to the more calm and collected Ryu.  His eye is only yellow because of the fire reflecting in it, not coz I 'changed' it :P  I did use bits of footage from the series for references especially in poses and constructing a face similar to Christian Howard's - as a tribute to his brilliant portrayal of the character :)  Think I got a bit carried away with the "raw/fiery" idea and went crazy with the background... eh...

So if you're a SF fan and you haven't seen SFAF yet (where have you been? lol XD), go check out the complete season here www.youtube.com/playlist?list=…

Somehow, he looks more like Vega, then Ken. :/

Maybe it's beacuse both of them are Aquarius hahahah

(so is Blanka, but that's not relevant)

Well, I'm Aquaris too, but I don't look like any of them.

This pic kicks ass. It reminds me of one of my Street Fighter Comics with the foil edition cover of Ken's Dragon Punch. (It wasn't Alpha but it's friggin Ken, XD)

I've played Alpha and Alpha 3 and Street Fighter II as well as Turbo. Sadly I just own Alpha 3 and SF x TK on my PS Vita but heck that'll hold me down until I get another Street Fighter game like IV or some editions of II.

Anyways yeah this picture kicks ass and I definitely agree with you. Between the two of them Ken is more fiery. He even mentions it in one of his win quotes and you can see his raw spirit unleashed in his moves. I mostly use Ken in Street Fighter because well.... (when I was younger it was because he wore red, my favorite color.) Ryu's too mellow for me though I don't mind using him.

I don't think you went overboard with the fire. (You should see the cover of the comic I have.)

Overall great job with this and definitely keep up the great work. =D

No problem! Also Vega's Stage in Alpha 3 is my favorite stage to fight in. Also he's pretty badass in Street Fighter x Tekken.
Keep up the great work. =D

Thanks for the constructive comment!  I am aware that I prefer drawing certain face types (and using certain proportions)  I did try to make this one look a bit like the actual actor, Christian Howard but I agree that he still have those similar facial proportions - will work on diversifying :)
