View Full Version : [FIGHTER] Street Fighter, SAKURA, OmenD4

I've tried as hard as I could not to enter but I just canít do it. It's my first post over here on Polycount, hopefully not my last.
I've decided to do Sakura from Street Fighter.
My take on it will be an older version of her in the same universe. Here is my initial sketch. Sakura is now one of the most deadly fighters in the world. Even though Ryu has long since passed on she still wears part of his outfit as a tribute to her mentor and idol. One of her eyes is badly scarred and she uses her tell tale bandana as a patch.
Here are a couple of outfit variation thumbs. a) Is the same as the sketch above. Maybe she has defeated Akuma as well and wears his beads as a trophy. I'm not sure which one to plump for yet. Any thoughts?

hey OmenD4 beautiful concept....I think that you nailed it with the first concept, I would probably add the trousers of e and end up with some sort of mirrors edge Karate kid mashup.....but no, stick with a it looks great.

Solid concept, i like the idea.
The only thing is the pose (assuming that will be her final pose)... her body is twisted unnaturally with her shoulders one way and her hips the other. If she's walking forward or something it would work, but only if her back foot wasn't so far behind the front foot and twisted the wrong way. I think you should switch the legs up (forward to back) OR you could take her left leg and move it away from her a bit and point the left toe the other direction. Anyway, just a thought.
Keep up the good work!.

Thanks for the feed back. Seth I'm inclined to agree with you. Some of the others are not faithful enough to the original character I'll stick with A. Clintus Maximus you are so right about the pose, its all over the shop. This was never intended to be the final pose more of a get the character out of my brain onto paper before I got distracted........ or drunk. If only pencil and paper had a CtrlZ and the warp tool ;)
Hopefully if I get time I will do a more finished concept tonight without the broken spine this time

This canít fail, I enter late, and Iím late finishing the concept now I'm off on holiday. I'm sure when I return I will be in some kind of 3D fighting character generating Zen mode and it will all be fine. Lets hope.....Deep breaths.......
Here's the latest concept of our older Sakura.

while it's a nice concept, it miss the mythic red panty :p

Agreed with ezmeow. Great Concept though. I still really like this redesign. But I feel this in combination with your (B) thumbnail would really retain that Sakura feel. Boy shorts would be really cool. Either way you take this I'm sure it'll be amazing.

Love the take on the character. I'd like to see a flannel shirt with ripped sleeves, and fingerless leather gloves. :)

Thanks folks, wow 20 odd days and nothing. I'm setting new records here. I blame Venice (and booze), a beautiful city but not good for forum challenges. I finally got time recently to sit down and work on her, well a little bit.
First it was the zsphere sketch to get her blocked out.
Then on to the clean topology. Soon after a little UV pain I will get to do the fun bit in the brush and hopefully be able to post up something pretty.
If I'm back in another 20 days I've missed the dealine right ;)

Looks like she has a case of Man Hands. Man Hands It could just be those thick gloves though.

Hehe yeah I think its a bit of both. Hopefully when its looks more like wrapping they will look less gigantic. But I'll scale them back a bit and remove the adams apple ;)

As a huge fan of Sakura, that concept sketch is pretty awesome.

Sadly redundancy has reared its ugly head again so I will be dusting of my cv and web site rather than finishing my model in time. Sorry folks but I will be back next year I promise.
