AKUMA - EDIT: alt. version by FabianMonk AKUMA - EDIT: alt. version by FabianMonk
EDIT: Yeah, he's a bit pink in this one. I was trying something out, and while I was working on it I liked it, so I stuck with it. But now that it's been pointed out and I've taken a second, more detached look, I have to agree. So here's a slightly different version, with a slightly different skin tone: [link] !!!


Been a minute since the last update, but when I saw this sketch by LeSean, I just couldn't resist. I've always been a fan of Akuma's design (actually pretty much all Capcom designs...), he looks straight up like the devil beast and I've been itching for something like this. So this afternoon I just put homework to the side for a bit, this had to be done. I hope I pulled the whole evil-and-energetic-as-fuck vibe off with this, because that's what I was going for.
Anyway, school's been keeping me pretty busy over here, but in the good kind of way. Everything I've been doing lately is traditional, and I don't have a scanner here, so I don't know how soon you'll be seeing any of that. I'll have to see if I can access a scanner at school somehow.

And that's it!

Pencils: LeSean Thomas :iconlesean:
Colors by me.

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS.

And I guess Akuma is a property of Capcom!

Creepy. Pink is better. It makes it look more like his eyes are giving off a glow.

Okay cool, but yeah here's what I was talking about: I didn't draw this, I only colored it. So you'll have to give credit to LeSean Thomas :iconlesean: as well, for the lineart.

Cheers mate! :beer:

Well since I didn't draw it, technically you have to get LeSean's permission as well. But I guess as long as you don't distribute it or anything, but just keep it as your own wallpaper, it should be fine.

I prefer the alternative version... however this one is still crazy good, plus you can pick him in this "pink'ish" colour scheme too... so I guess its really just a case of which one prefers... however both are equally crazy, amazing work :-)

So I got this guy hooked on your art. And he's probably one of the largest Akuma fans I know.

I think now, he will want to have your babies.

For sure.

The Pink is sweet. Looks like his eyes are glowing so bright it's changing the skintone of his face to pink reflections. The redux just looks like hes got like a desk lamp on his face.
