Hypothetically: GAROU 2 - WILD BOUT (B. Jenet) by G-for-Galdelico Hypothetically: GAROU 2 - WILD BOUT (B. Jenet) by G-for-Galdelico
--- Quick recap, since these profiles will go to clubs too (WIP lineup here: fav.me/d9q4xyf ) ---

Everyone is talking about Street Fighter V, about what they love/hate in the new game's artstyle, about what CAPCOM should've/shouldn't have done etc... And I believe it's all good and fair, to be honest.
So, my idea here is pretty simple: what happens when you (well, 'I', since this is totally personal and subjective XD) apply some SFV design elements/choices to another game? I picked up GAROU - Mark of the Wolves because I love Fatal Fury, and also because I believe it's a game that could be reimagined in a very similar way, compared to SF. There will be classic characters, new entries, and maybe a few guests from other SNK titles... Everything will be kept at a 'concept sketch' level, to keep up the pace and - hopefully - your interest.

Third entry, B. JENET!

Ok, I expect this to be pretty divisive. :D
Main source of inspiration was the asymmetric, alternate outfit for Zangief and Mika, which I immediately tought it could be a perfect fit for my new Jenet. I had alot of fun trying to imagine how a thief could evolve into Garou's storyline, so - very simply - she's now a crime superstar, who gained full awareness of herself, almost as a fashion brand, and she acts consequently. The iron ball is purely an ornament (even though it would be cool if her fighting style made use of it in some crazy, over the top way), in homage to another famous bad guy from SNK, Chang Koehan.

Hope everyone likes, and please feel free to comment/critique!
Peace :peace:

Love that pose!
Classic european exhibitionist thief look too, the ball on chain should definitely be included in a special move somewhere.
Pretty revealing outfit though, wow :0

Wow! Now that's quite a departure. I like your idea for where to take the character, it's goofily over the top and a great excuse for an equally over the top costume! Considering her "magical skirt" in the original game, the half-naked look and the boob sticker is not exactly what I would've expected, heh... but I think it's super sexy and stylish, and goes great with the background you came up with! Absolutely top notch work on the anatomy, pose, and proportions as always. Would love to see more of this design! :D

It's always interesting to see people's reaction to this kind of stuff, reading comments like yours, that truly help me to look at my own work under different angles. It's extremely difficult to predict others' expectations - especially with some super popular characters like these ones - and that's the reason why I always try to contextualize my design choices with a bit of back-story.

I'm pretty excited to reveal the next entry! :D

I did not liked this one until reading your insight. Now this design makes even more sense and makes me see you really know Jenet and the characters. Loved it again!

Keep it up, bro! Cheers!

These are the comments that keep me going, man. Thank you!

Design is so subjective, see what's happening with SFV Alex right now... One person loves the new look, the next one hates it. It's totally fair and should be expected. That said, this shouldn't stop you to pour into your creations as much thought as you can possibly do, no matter what.

I think most pinups' success hinge on how well the legs are drawn, so it's definitely a good area to concentrate on!

Her hair . . . has it been cut short?  B. Jenet can't rock short hair as good as Blue Mary (probably because Mary is one of my favorites . . . along with Yuri)

And Chang.  Yes!  Great character, and I'm glad he's back in XIV.

Hair isn't supposed to be short, just tied up. Not a huge fan of loose, long hair in fighting game ladies, I guess because it usually looks real bad in motion. XD

Nice wine glass and that flower matches nicely with her gloves.
I also love the Chang Koehan inspired iron ball!

And yes, initially I thought to give her a Chang key chain too - to make the reference even clearer - but then I felt like she should've carried some Choi gadget too, which seemed a bit too heavy, so I only kept the iron ball.

I agree and a chain necklace would totally obscure our view of the "heavenly bodies" and SNK marketing execs/higher-ups would surely disapprove of that idea!

The way I see it is that the ball could possibly handicap her move sets but ultimately do sufficient damage when used properly. The whole Zangief approach is totally applicable to this set-up, I guess?

Exactly! Even though I'm not planning fighting style/movesets, here, I still try to imagine how these characters would behave in a real game... And for Jenet I could definitely give SNK gurus some idea to work with (I mean, one can dream... XD).
The iron ball could be so heavy she can only move/jump according to the lenght of the chain - she could still kick it, in order to move it around a bit and change position - but it would be a physical obstacle for her opponents too, as in they'd have to jump over it, taking the risk of leaving themselves open to attacks... Or it could be a simple ornament, light and actually usable, in a similar way to her magical skirt in the original game. Lots of possibilities. :D

Ah yes, the skirt was indeed a memorable design from Garou.
Lots of possibilities indeed.
I like how most of your redesigns does have the color scheme and familiar element from the original design as opposed to changing everything all up and further alienating the fans. It's the best of both worlds, kinda like Hannah Montana!

And thank you again, that's my main objective, here. I had to stop this for a while, due to some lethal combinations of job related deadlines, but I'm on it again now, so hopefully the next character will be up soon. :D

These redesigns are as avant-garde as the original and quite frankly, I kinda miss them!

A mia discolpa c'è la prova che il simbolo harlockiano arriva direttamente dal design originale (la tipa è una ladra piratessa che si muove per i mari a bordo di un sommergibile!)... :D
