We Are Fighters by Pltnm06Ghost We Are Fighters by Pltnm06Ghost
Sorry for the lazy background! It was the most I could come up with after slaving weeks over a hot laptop trying to make this before September hit :noes:

Basically a random illustration from the top of my head of the four characters I'll most certainly be using in the upcoming Dead or Alive 5; Jann Lee, Hitomi, Eliot, and Akira Yuki from Virtua Fighter. At the moment I am MEGA-HYPED for this game to come out and have been itching to play this ever since I saw the very first footage of the Alpha build. We've been waiting 7 long years for a new DoA game and this is shaping up to be the very best in the series.

When Akira was announced out of nowhere, I was really excited to see his inclusion into the game, and I've been playing Final Showdown day in and day out training to use him in DoA5. Not to sound seriously competitive or anything, but I can't wait to body online with him simply for the fact that Akira IS NOT BORING and I'm tired of him being bashed on by Ryu fanboys. Anyone, and I mean ANYONE, can put on a dogi and be compared to Ryu/Ken/Dan/Akuma/Sean/etc. Akira's an entirely different character, guys, and is hardly anything like Ryu. Accept it~ :B

So yeah, that's all. And look forward to getting DoA5 September 25th. I'm certainly getting it Day 1 for the PS3, so I'd be looking forward to playing anyone willing to use me as a punching bag :P

Oh, and a final note. Go out and buy Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown. One of the most fantastic fighting games to come out this year. TTT2 and DoA5 will eat up all my time, but I'm definitely coming back to this when I'm done with them :D

For some reason I keep remembering the intro vid of Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing where Akira makes Bryant's car go faster by freaking SHOULDER STRIKING IT.

But yeah, this piece is more than boss. You have done well!

You know, the background fits pretty well with this type of drawing. There's really not enough negative space to justify a detailed one (at least in my opinion).

But it's true, you never really see enough love for the MALE DoA characters. Hell, I always mained Ryu Hayabusa at the arcades. In fact, he's my favorite character in the whole damn series :katana:

Ryu Hayabusa is just flat out epic in every form, how could he not be our favorite? Too bad I don't use him very much :B And yeah, this is pretty much the kind of BG I had pictured in my head, so best I roll with it lol
