Sakura by regourso Sakura by regourso
Alright, so. I’ve always had a peeve with how most characters in SF seldom age throughout the series. I remember playing SFA for the first time and saying “wow, it’s awesome to look at Ryu, Ken, Chun-li, etc. as young people!” and I always wondered if the time would come when they’d move forward with them and actually make them look older. I had this issue a lot with Sakura so I just tried to imagine how’d she’d look if she actually moved forward, idk. Maybe she actually got to train with Ryu for a while and then took off on her own. I added the red bandana detail to still keep some of Ryu in her (a parting gift perhaps?), but I also wanted to show in her outfit that she’s not only matured as a fighter but actually moved on from her admiration/infatuation of/with Ryu and decided to pursue her own path in martial arts seriously. I’m aware her outfit looks disgustingly similar to Abel’s so I may do some other options later on. Figured she’d sew in patches of flags from the places she’s been to, sort of a track record of where she’s fought, maybe to remember her friends by. She pursues the warrior’s path with the same dedication as her former mentor, but she does it with much more cheerfulness and personality and I wanted to show that in how she presents herself. I’m definitely gonna keep doing this, maybe more characters. We’ll see.

I like your dimensional interpretation of her. I hope Capcom eventually puts her ever-school girl personality to rest... As for her rival Karin, I can kind of see her being a dysfunctional version of Helena from DOA. Personality-wise, anyways..

I don't know, Capcom has been making very bad decisions recently and I don't think they'll stop. You know, I might just go ahead and work on Karin, too. I hope you don't mind me taking your suggestion in consideration!

Agreed.. *sigh* I kind of stopped caring when they didn't include Elena in the recent installments.. They did compensate with Yang, but I still am disappointed in Capcom..

Oh yeah, I don't mind at all! I actually would love to see you render a mature Karin. Looking forward to it..

It's a lot of things, yes. Not including Elena certainly disappointed me too, among other things. I'll try to make the time work more SF characters like I did Sakura.

I like it! It's like if Sakura actually made it into SFIII... I'd love to see more characters. :)
