Art of Capcom Complete Edition cover by NgBoy Art of Capcom Complete Edition cover by NgBoy
This year's San Diego exclusive book that Udon will be selling is a complete edition of Udon's Art of Capcom! I had the honour of being tapped to draw the exclusive dust cover that will only be available at this year's San Diego Comiccon. This was a really fun piece to work on. It was inspired by Kinu Nishimura's Capcom Design works cover. It's still no where near that level, but i hope i at least did a decent homage. 

flats by FlattSquat and finished colours by my main man EspenG

p.s.! Before you ask "why isn't (insert favourite character here) in here???" like some of you always do ;), I was given a list of characters who needed to be in it as well as specific titles that can only be included, and then i filled the rest with ones that i just enjoyed drawing. i'm preemptively sorry if your fav got the shaft!

Now THIS would be a sweet cast lineup for a Capcom exclusive fighting game, one that would totally crap all over Capcom Fighting Evolution!

Fantastic. I love the little touches like Dhalsim's foot throughout. Also, it's a real godsend that they did Dino Crisis cause now you can just add a dinosaur to any Capcom artjam. Cause we all need more dinosaurs in our lives.

This is amazing, I knew it reminded me of Nishimura's piece when I saw it. I think it is definitely a great homage!
