Fan-Art! Fan-Art!

I drew this on a train, coming home from a short vacation. Originally it was going to be all elaborate with Blanka swinging through the trees complete with this insane detailed background. Then I was like, screw that– it’s fan-art. I’m not putting any more than the bare minimum of work into this.

In coloring the drawing with that same attitude, I tried a bit of a sketchy style. I was very free with the brushes, not caring too much about boundaries. It ended up developing into a pretty cool, very painterly coloring stlye. And although it didn’t take me any less time to finish, I think this coloring stlye fits the subject matter– wild, free, beastly! haha.

Blanka is a character from Street Fighter and although he isn’t my favorite Street Fighter, he is the one character I can consistently win with. Whenever I’m in the arcades and some punk keeps beating my Chun-Li or Rose, I pick up Blanka and KICK THEIR ASS!

    Very nice picture !
    Thank you

  • Patrick says:

    Ooooooohh YEAAAHHHH!!!!! LOL!!! Dude, this is AWESOME! I just love your Capcom art, and I have to say you really did old Blanka BIG TIME justice in this awesome pic! I love it!!!

    Thanks so much for posting him!

    And by the way… I totally know what you mean about pulling Blanka out in the arcades to exact revenge on bastards who trash your other characters. Sometimes, you just need a little satisfaction, know what I mean? I used to Love Storm in the Street Fighter/X-Men arcade games. Most other players were pretty helpless in the face of her monstrous TYPHOONS!!!! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!

    I say it serves ’em right! LOL!!!

    Love the image, JC. Feel free to show us your take on Street Fighter characters any time you like!

    Hugz + Kisses,
    Patrick XOXOX

    Looks awesome 🙂

    Actually, Patrick, it would be awesome to see your take on Blanka with the big green brazilian meat swinging around 😀

    Hey Fabrissou! I was just on your blog the other day admiring your work. I’ve had a folder on my HD dedicated to your stuff ever since I discovered you on y!gallery. I still like that Rival Schools piecee– and the G.I.!

  • JC says:

    Hey thanks Patrick. I think a lot of my style is influenced by Capcom– so whenever I draw those guys, it almost looks authentic. heehee.

    X-Men vs. Street Fighter is still my favorite game of all time. It was so unexpected! And my team of Storm / Rogue was the first pair I ever won with! Strong ladies!
    Kind-of a shame Blanka and Beast weren’t in there because that would have been an awesome team.

    Oh– and f we’re on the subject of Street Fighter requests for Patrick… ahem… KEN cough cough.

    Hehe. That’s so saaweeet! Love the balls peak’n out on each side.

    Your “sketchy” style has a very anime feel.

    This piece is SO awesome! ^_^ I always loved Blanka! He was so fun to play with and despite his being all green and beastly, I always loved hi chest fur. XD You’ve really created the ultimate forbidden taboo version of Blanka that I was never willing to admit I so desperately wanted to see. 😛 Love his long foreskin, btw. ^_^; Thanks a million for sharing! 😀

  • Jessica says:

    Love the foreskin and balls… Love the pic!

    Excellent work, JC! Everytime I see your work, you get me going with creative nostalgia–and your work continues to grow by leaps and bounds, my friend!
    Glad to see you cranking out the “goodies” on a continual basis.

    Looking forward to seeing what you do next.

    P.S. Persuasions is “da bomb,” my friend–keep up the good work.


  • JC says:
