King of Fighters 12

The King of Fighters 12 website has a contest running. Submitting art for their upcoming game under "Fan Art" and there's a $1,000 first prize attached.

I grew up playing a LOT of video games, KoF being one of them. So I have an affinity for doing this sort of thing and since the Darkstalkers thing went so well, I thought "why not?"

For one it gives me another project to work on. For some reason I become way more productive when I have a defined goal or end point to work with. When I'm drawing just to fritter away time I may get some good ideas, but I never flesh something out to the point of completion. Psyching myself out into viewing any artwork as a project tends to accomplish more.

In that spirit, take a gander at some of these process drawings. All characters are copyright SNK/Playmore and I'll update as I put more work into this thing.

05/20/09 - New process at top added.
05/21/09 - Background added.
05/22/09 - Added type, not too sure if I can call it done.

Very cool entry! You've inspired me to join in as well. After all my favorite character got a revamp for this game, so I'm quite excited to play it now. Good luck to you in the contest!

I'm glad you are! I've been trying to get as many illustrators in on this as possible! Good luck man!
