Let's kick off with some of my favorite artwork from the Capcom fighting game, Rival Schools (on the ps1). The original art work is by Edayan.
The aim of my studies is NOT to replicate the image perfectly. I am not a copy machine. I only want to try and investigate how an image would be created and what tools I could use to create something similar in style.
Ok, here we go!
1) Sketched out the shapes, and I highlighted the negative spaces, because I am quite conscious about them while I am drawing. I actually drew the ball too small and as a result the figure is also a bit more squashed than the original :P
