A few days ago some old art I had posted on Twitter went viral, and all of a sudden I found myself getting a few hundred new followers in just a day or two! Having hovered around 2,700 followers for a while, I’d thought about trying to draw something to commemorate the milestone once I hit 3K, but it ended up happening a lot more suddenly than expected, so I had to kind of rush it 😂
In any case, to celebrate reaching 3,000 followers, I decided to draw three flavours of one of my favourite characters, Cammy! Despite being a bit rushed, I was quite happy with how it turned out, and it was a fun challenge to try and draw the STREET FIGHTER 6 version for the first time. Needless to say there isn’t a lot of good reference out there at this point… 😅
Thank you for following! 🙏

At the end of this year’s Capcom Pro Tour Finals, after a long period of leaks, rumours and speculation, Capcom finally unveiled STREET FIGHTER 6. As a lifelong fan of Capcom and Street Fighter, not to mention as someone with more than their fair share of opinions on the artistic direction of the series over the last decade or two, you can bet I have some thoughts.
Needless to say, we still don’t know much about STREET FIGHTER 6. All we really have to go on is a 40-second teaser which doesn’t really tell us anything concrete, as well as whatever we can extrapolate and predict from the series’ trajectory across the last couple of instalments. That said, I still find it interesting to dissect and analyse what Capcom has chosen to present as the world’s introduction to the next chapter of STREET FIGHTER.
To sum up my overall impressions of the reveal, I guess you could say I’m equal parts disappointed, frustrated, and… unsurprised. If you’ll indulge me, allow me to go into more depth and explain why.
