Newgrounds Background Image Theme

Shin Akuma


This dude is one of my favorite characters for the SF series. Nothing better than watching opponents squirm during a Raging Demon. >:)

I love this, the whole image is just great.

What program was this done in?

Akuma is without a doubt, a figure of destruction. This picture is really well done and reminds me a lot of JohnnyUtah's version of Akuma. The two pictures have a very cartoonistic approach and I like how you have captured his anger in a caricature. My favorite things about this piece are the necklace, the eyes, the slight showing of the teeth and the crease right above his nose. These elements show an eye for detail in expressing the emotion, from the color red to the snarl he has. Another thing that I like about this picture is the Japanese symbol in the background (or what I'm assuming is Japanese.) It just adds to the Street Fighter Essence of it! One thing that I don't like too much in this picture is his hair. This is just a personal preference because as well done as it is, I think it looks like Garlic. It doesn't really take away from this piece, it's just something that caught my eye. Once again, this picture is awesome and it's a great caricature of Akuma!
