DarkStalkers Tribute Sneak-Peek!
I entered the Darkstalkers Tribute contest sponsored by UDON over the weekend, it was a lot of hard work and because I put off the drawing til Thursday I was working up until 20 minutes before the image was due last night. Yikes!
The character I chose to illustrate was Hsien-ko, a chinese ghost - which explains why she is blue. ;)
I am really proud of my piece but I can't share the entire image. UDON discourages the final piece being posted until the book is out, so I can only share a snippet!
I checked the website this morning, and the competition is FIERCE:
We are awed by the number of submissions - over 2000! We thought last year's 1400+ Street Fighter submissions was impressive, but this is just bonkers. The variety and quality we're seeing overall is fantastic. Really, really great stuff. This Tribute book will be one for the ages.
Needless to say, this is going to take a bit to get fully organized and judging may take some time while we go through this mass of material.
Wish me luck, guys! :)
