Street Fighter fan-art inspires weird feelings

Recommended Videos

I’ve always had mixed emotions about the “take some popular superheroes and make them sexy ladies” school of character design. It’s simultaneously a cheap gimmick, and a inarguably effective technique to take characters that young men want to be, and turn them into characters young men want to be with. I’d be lying if it didn’t work on me in the past. I definitely had a thing for She-Hulk and Devil Man Lady at one point in my life.

Artist Bastien Vives has gone ahead and run with that idea, while taking stops along the way to show us M. Bison as a country club preppy, and Sagat as a short shorts adorned sailor. All the art is well crafted, but I have strong feeling that some pieces will illicit a much stronger response than others.

Do any of you ladies want to boink Chun-Li-Man?
