C’mon, Let’s Fight!

“C’mon, let’s FIGHT!” was what the main characters of this 1986 NES classic shouted before unloading their semi-automatic weapons into the jungles of their 8-bit universe. I’m speaking of Ikari Warriors, a rare game I never actually owned. A friend of mine had it but whenever we played, it would freeze on like the 4th stage. My friend was convinced that it was because he had roaches in his Nintendo and I told him that didn’t make any sense. Then, sure enough, one day we were playing and a cockroach crawled out of his Nintendo and the thing froze. I never played Josh’s Nintendo again after that.

ANYWAY, yeah, random tangent. The characters from this game would later be much more fleshed out in SNK‘s fighting game super-franchise King of Fighters. KOF, as it is called by fans, is the main rival to Capcom’s Street Fighter, and the Ikari Warriors: Ralf and Clark have been in all 10+ installments of the game. Clark is quiet, reserved, and never removes his shades. Ralf is loud, boisterous, and takes a swig of beer before each match. The two are military partners and inseparable friends (which of course leads fans to pair them up romantically!)

So yeah, enjoy my version of the Ikari team in all their dangling glory.

    OMG! How awesome is this pic?! They make an impossibly hot couple! So different, yet so similar; the contrast between the blonde and brunette, then the undeniable shared intense masculinity. The blonde body hair is a particularly hot touch. You don’t get a lot of hairy blondes, in my experience. Plus the cum dripping from their handshake is especially sexy. Leaves the possibility for our imaginations to run wild coming up with whatever sensual rendezvous they were just having. LOVE IT, JC! =) You rock.

    Nothing marks your friendship more than a cum-pact, eh. The guy in the shades looks particularly hot, except why has he got the wee winkee? Don’t you know it’s always the ‘quiet, reserved’ ones which are packing? Disappointed. *shakes head* Lovin the pixellated touch though.

    Wabbit xx

    Hey JC…

    I LOVE it when you do video game art — and this piece is wicked and so naughty! I love the cum in the boys hands! HEH! HEH! HEH! The Cum-pact as Wabbit called it!

    It’s very cool the way you created the “video game screen cap” effect by pixelating some of the elements in the drawing. It makes Clark and Ralph pop off the screen — literally! 😉 Another great image with another pair of impressive wangs! LOL!

    Hugz + Kisses,
    Patrick XOXO

    Hey Dreamerboy. Yeah, you don’t get a lotta hairy blondes in my art becasue depicting blone body hair is a pain in the ass! LOL! But yeah, I agree,, it totally adds to the duo’s masculinity.

    Hey, Wabbit. Clark’s wang here is small just cuz I thought it’d be hot on him. No real reason. Also, I should probably point out that yeah, he began kinda reserved in the 1st few games– but now in the newer games, he’s just as showy as Ralf. Posing all the time and making these crazy sounds. The pair seem very arrogant in the games. But they have a reason to be– they’re the hottest– haha.

    Hey Patrick– thanks for noticing my pixelation effect. It was a total after-thought. I did the image a long time ago and thought the other day, “Oh let me add the dog-tags to that Ikari piece,” and then I ended up opening it and adding the pixelation effect but totally forgot to add their dog-tags! HAHA.

    Huzzah, for more HOT n’ SEXY Game-Art! I’ve been thinking JC, if you aren’t already, you should definitely be doing game/conceptual art for the industry. I think your work and imagination translates well into that medium.
    And yeah, Blonde hair IS a pain to render! LOL.

    Much love JC!

    YAY! I loved Ikari Warriors, though i never made past level two, cause.. i really sucked. But it was a fun game non the less. But i had no idea they moved those guys to KOF. THats awsome!

    And, the cockroaches in the nintendo.. wow.. thats a new one on me. Bugs live in everything.. even us!? AHHH! *coughs up a spider*

  • JC says:

    Hey Z-Maker– you don’t know how good it is to hear that! It would definetely be my dream job– working in the conceptual stage in the gaming industry. There are just so many bad games being produced right now. It makes me wanna cry. I think the industry is pushing new titles further and further away from what I liked abut games in the 1st place. All games are friggin’ 1st person shooters now UGH! 2d fighting and side scrolling adventures are a thing of the past.

    Hey DigitalMairage. Yeah, the roaches in the NES thing stumped me for a while too. I guess they liked it there becasue it was warm??? Who knows.
