Hypothetically: GAROU 2 - WILD BOUT (Terry) by G-for-Galdelico Hypothetically: GAROU 2 - WILD BOUT (Terry) 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.

First entry, TERRY BOGARD!

Even though the beard may lead to believe I followed the 'hot Ryu way' with Terry, I actually went full-out Ken here. I think the two characters share some similarities, both in their attitude and flashy combat style.
I tried to imagine an older Terry - still trendy and good looking, yet a little scruffy - returning from one of his turbulent, lone wolf journeys. The classic Airborne jacket is still here, but I tried to mix up new details with classic features from his Fatal Fury outfits (once again, like Ken in SFV).

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

Ah man this is a brilliant idea!

I do recall this game from the Dreamcast days/early 2000's when there were so many amazing ideas flashing around and everything still seemed great and exciting (hope you understand what I mean?!?).
That time when SNK and Capcom seemed to have a friendly competition, mimicking and egging each other on was really fun!

Your design is superb, I love how your style has a loose rough sketchy look yet seems nicely polished too!
What's your prog of choice? I'm assuming photoshop? I like how you get those pastel like lines and that mix of worn and sharp texture in there.
One question I have is that a tied back hipster bun on the back of his head there??
Anyway great work as always :thumbsup::thumbsup::+fav:

Damn, really not sure how I feel about Hipster Terry! lol :D
Your art sells the concept well however, and as always  the silhouette is just immaculate!
The one part of the design I'm not quite sold on is the colour of the shoes. It's a little unclear if they are meant to be red or brown, but either way I don't think the monochrome look really works. I love high top sneakers and I think they're a great fit for Terry, but I really think they could do with at least a dash of white (recalling his old All-Stars, for that matter).

In any case I think you're off to a fantastic start and I can't wait to see what's in store!

Haha, thanks J, always appreciate your passionate comments! That's what I'm looking for.

I really want to try and bring two different design directions to a cohesive result. On the one hand, my most personal/subjective preferences - in terms of 'what I'd love for a new Garou to look like' - and the idea of remaining faithful to the classic SNK style, on the other one. Sure, elements such as the Converse or the cap, are pretty much iconic, but in a way part of the challenge (and the fun) is to look beyond them, as in nothing is 100% untouchable.
Hopefully, it will all lead to some interesting finale. XD

Of course, there would be no point to an exercise like this is everything was sacred. And I wouldn't be interested in seeing you do it if you weren't bringing your perspective into the artwork either! I enjoy trying to straddle that line between faithfulness and respect on one hand, and personal interpretations on the other, and I think it's always fun to see iconic characters filtered through the lens of someone's distinct artistic vision.

Having said that I don't care so much about Terry's All-Stars, I just think any sneakers look better with some white on em :laughing:

Oh wow, Hobo Terry!
I really liked the pajama pants. It's very age appropriate for an older Terry since he's probably pass his prime and tight jeans wouldn't be to forgiving towards his prostate!

I like the man bun, again very age appropriate but I kinda miss the cap though. He doesn't even have to wear it, he could tie it around his belt area as a sort of "recall" to a younger Terry.

I thought about it alot, but in the end I decided to leave it out. I mean - of course you're right - you say Terry, you immediately think about the cap, but in the end this is Garou Terry, and he looked just different there.

:icondarkchapel666:
darkchapel666 Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2016
I agree!
He actually looked like a different character altogether.
But I guess they're bringing the cap back for KOF XIV.
And seriously speaking, how many characters does this game need?????

They could've done the same for Ryu in SFIII. But they didn't and speaking of updates....they couldn't even design a proper Alex.
:no:

Haha, not a big fan of new Alex either. XD
I mean, he looks kinda cool, but also weird at the same time... There's definitely something off to me, even though I can't specifically point out what it is.

It's those darn sideburns, those damn things had to go on the next revision!
Also worth mentioning is Alex packing on some extra pounds, is this some Hulk Hogan reference we're missing out on.
If yes then this certainly isn't the right path for the said character.

Haha, yeah. I've seen fan-edits of his hairstyle that literally make him look better with a couple of Photoshop stamp touches. Knowing CAPCOM, though, nothing will change. XD

Eh, I really hope they'll manage to come out with a decent looking game in the end, because this new KoF seems proper solid otherwise, and the 50 characters roster is quite the right way to relaunch the series. I'm still positive about it! :D

I can say, this kind of redesign looks more bold that those from SFV, where they gave spade beard to Dhalsim, but kept bunch of other classic characters just as they were in their original appearances. It could actually be interesting to see all of the characters get equally older and different. Will Hokutomaru grow into cool ninja from annoying kid, will Rock have more resemblance to Geese when he will become older?
Also I wonder, what kind of rendering style would you prefer for hypothetical Fatal Fury sequel?

I can tell we share a VERY similar mindset, here, but I won't spoil anything... :plotting:

To your question, you have no idea how much I fantasized - I still do that! - about a new Fatal Fury. The most irrational me would die for a fully 2D game, with pixel-based sprites, Third Strike-level animations and backgrounds as lively as those seen in Last Blade. That said - even ignoring the fact that such graphics would be undoable in this era - I don't think they'd impact as strongly as I like to believe. So - since the technology could most likely allow it, now - I'd go with a '3D Shinkiro' design, in a combat flow on this vibe: www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-jbjV…
What about you?

What style to be most appropriate for new FF instalment is a quite interesting thing to think about. Visually - maybe something "Prince of Persia 2008"-ish: pretty detailed, but still with a cartoonish tint. Сombat flow - damn, I must say this Garouden Breakblow thing is almost perfectly suitable.

Grazie mitico. :worship:

Oramai la semplicità ho imparato ad accettarla come 'cifra stilistica' e a coltivarla come tale, ma ce n'è voluto... Cioè, il mio occhio gode di fronte alla ricchezza - di dettagli, di colore, di luci/ombre - e adoro gli stili complessi e ricercati (tipo il tuo), ma non ce n'è, non ce la posso fare. Ho questo intervallo di tempo molto ristretto, in cui l'hype creativo deve esaurirsi e arrivare a compimento, altrimenti salta tutto. E la cosa mi ha portato a sviluppare un disegno veloce e semplificato, con il quale però cerco sempre di esprimere tutto quello che mi gira in testa.
Poi, vabbè, capita che mi pianto 13 ore su una minuzia stronza che nessuno noterà mai... XD

hahaha capisco totalmente (qua e la nella mia gallery ci sono esempi di tale logica) ma ormai tendo a far sfogare quella stesso impeto nella tecnica dello speedpainting, massimo risultato con minimo(si fa per dire) sforzo. C'è da dire che il tuo è stile e linguaggio, ha un quid in più proprio per questo, è personalissimo e questo per esperienza so che presto o tardi paga sempre, facendo un paragone con la musica è come un cantautore dalla voce particolare, magari non piace a tutti ma a chi piace, piace proprio perchè è lui;)
