Love the pointy pony styles, so went goofing around in photoshop last night. Stayed up way too late, but it was worth it. Have a laundry list of other bits to animate next...mane, tail, eyes and magical horn aura. Whee!!!
So with the trailers for the next installment of one of the best fighting games of all time coming out, I've had Street Fighter on the brain. Anyone who does martial arts in real life knows that weapons feature heavily in many styles, some more than others. While there have been some characters in the franchise that either make use of or are sometimes depicted packing, Vega most notably with his claw but also Eagle (escrima sticks), Fei Long (nunchaku), Viper (taser gloves/jet shoes), Rolento (quarterstaff and grenades), and more; but for the most part the characters eschew weapons. I like this creative decision as the fighting styles are distinct and stylized, whether armed or empty handed. Just for fun though, what are some weapons you think your favorite Street Fighter characters would use if they decided to go into a fight with some teeth? Be it based in their actual martial art style or just something you think the character would choose to use. Now let me make myself crystal clear as I had problems with this exact post before. I am NOT suggesting Street Fighter become more focused on weapon combat, this is just a theoretical question on what some of you think the characters from the game would choose to arm themselves with IF they were forced or chose to use a weapon of their choosing. With that out of the way, for example: T. Hawk: Tomohawks. (Hey "Tomohawk" T. Hawk? Wonder if that was intentional. Yes I know his first name is "Thunder." . . . Which only brings to mind another Native American fighting game character . . .) Dhalsim: Urumi and shield Makoto: Katana (not trying to stereotype just that A ) Street Fighter has always used national identity to inform character and B ) she's old school and the heir to an old school.) Zangief: Hammer and axe combo. (Again, not stereotyping, but Zangief IS a patriotic Russian after all.)
