I just decided this guy looks like he's being introduced before a fight in "Street Fighter 2". This is the first of a group of figures on wood that I did a few months back. They're some of the best pieces I've done and a few are on my website. They're done without any sketches or underdrawings. All the line-work is done with paint makers in response to a few layers of mostly loose, free-form areas of acrylic. In the first couple, I used tan paint to cover the paint that ended up beyond the silhouette, but it felt fussy and artificial.
