Oni Akuma SSF4 by rgm501 Oni Akuma SSF4 by rgm501
Oni Akuma, one of the four new characters to Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition.

Some of you might remember this from the wip [link] i posted awhile ago.

Oni (鬼) are creatures from Japanese folklore, variously translated as demons, devils, ogres or trolls. They are popular characters in Japanese art, literature and theater.

The word "oni" is sometimes speculated to be derived from on, the on'yomi reading of a character (隠) meaning to hide or conceal, as oni were originally invisible spirits or gods which caused disasters, disease, and other unpleasant things. These nebulous beings could also take on a variety of forms to deceive (and often devour) humans. Thus a Chinese character (鬼) meaning "ghost" came to be used for these formless creatures.

funny enough the chinese also use the character (鬼) meaning "ghost", to refer to foreigners.

Oni Akuma is referenced from the popular manga 'RYU FINAL' [link] in the manga ryu kills akuma but not before akuma punches a hole through ryu's chest.
so now we have oni akuma, a demon/ghost.

please leave a comment if you like the drawing, gonna start on evil ryu soon.

peace!

I love the way you color stuff. It's really eye catching. Would you mind giving a few pointers?

rgm501 Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2012
the way i color is by using the paint brush on about 15 to 25 opacity.
i color the whole thing in really dark tones then go over them in the lighter tones, thet gives the flat areas texture.
then i add the shadows and blend.
hope that helps.

? I didn't sculpt the ryu one.. I just did an alternate head that was never released but can't wait to see it nonetheless!!

oh my bad, i thought you sculpted it.
you know who did?

EvilNinjaChris Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
some guy from the ukraine. I did Crimson Viper, Akuma, and both editions of Guile.. some of the parts were hacked from the original Ryu figure to save on budget. I was pretty bummed with the way the shotos and chun li turned out but what can ya do ;b
Reply
:iconrgm501:
rgm501 Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011
yeah i didn't like how chun li n ken came out, mostly just the faces that bothered me.
ryu was a bit troll faced but then again he is pretty ugly in the game...
was fun customizing ryu, i'm also doing an oni akuma but i'm using the snk vs capcom akuma figure for the base.
couldn't find a sf4 akuma for cheap enough...
