So we got the go ahead to show our pieces for the upcoming Capcom tribute book being put out by
It still hasn't really sunk in that I managed to make it into the book. I really wasn't expecting to get in and I ended up rushing to complete this before the deadline. At the same time, I am extremely excited since this will be my first piece of published artwork!
The characters featured in the piece are:
Thawk, El Fuerte, Noembelu (Street Fighter)
Originally I wanted to make a full on concert poster since this piece was heavily inspired from Cinco de Mayo bar posters. I ended up running out of time towards the end and just submitted it as is.
Another thing to note is that outside of the background, the entire piece is 100% vector (I drew the entire thing in Adobe Illustrator).
So that is about it. I guess I will need to look into how to make prints since we are allowed to sell a limited number of prints of our pieces, As well, if you happen to run into me and wish me to sign the book, I would feel honoured to do so.
Capcom Fighting Tribute will premiere with a limited-run convention edition hardcover at San Diego Comic-Con, July 9-12! www.udonentertainment.com/blog…
The standard edition of Capcom Fighting Tribute will be released September 2015. Links to pre-order the book at a variety of online retailers can be found here: www.udonentertainment.com/blog…

So no Juli, huh? Lol. I can understand why you wouldn't have her since she's German. But...she also lives in Mexico. It's like the Oro situation, Japanese guy living in Brazil (Amazon Basin). They're like the only 2 characters with this type of designation in Street Fighter so far. It's interesting.
I am pretty sure I am missing a few other people so might be a idea to revisit down the road.
I think an update to this would be nice to see later on. I can't think of any other Capcom fighting game characters from Mexico that haven't been added yet besides Juli (since she lives there) and El Stingray of Slam Masters fame.
