Streetfighter 2 was the theme of the month over at the character design challenge. So I draw some Blanka fan art … the character I probably picked most of the time back in the 90s. More poses of Blanka in my IG Feed.

New illustration online – a boxing sheep! To be honest, I’m not that much into that sport but I wanted to capture the lighting effects. And finally draw some glittering shorts ;)
You can check out the sketch on instagram.
