Akuma’s head has a very almost rectangular rather than typical taper down egg shape. His facial structure demonstrated masculinity, agression and power. Before you start drawing, it is very useful if you can look at any subject and able to break it down into simple geometry shapes. In this case, you can see strong rectangular shapes and random flame on top as his hair. Breaking your subject down into simple shape is a very good observation exercise for artists. It can be a lot easier when you already know the geometric structure of the subject.
Akuma (in Japanese, “Devil”) known in Japan as Gouki (豪鬼 Gōki lit. Great Demon?), is a video game character from the Street Fighter series of fighting games. Akuma made his debut in Super Street Fighter II Turbo as a secret character and hidden boss. In the storyline of the Street Fighter video games, he is the younger brother of Gouken, Ryu and Ken’s sensei. In some games he also has an enhanced version named Shin Akuma, or Shin Gouki (真・豪鬼?, the “true Gouki”) in Japanese. Akuma has maroon hair, wears prayer beads around his neck, a charcoal gray dogi and a piece of twine around his waist in lieu of an obi. The kanji ‘ten’ (天) – meaning “sky/heaven”, (all in the spiritual sense) – can be seen on his back when it appears during certain win animations. Shin Akuma’s appearance is very similar to Akuma’s; for example, in the Street Fighter Alpha series, Shin Akuma had a purple gi instead of a gray one and marginally lighter tone. Akuma’s introduction in Super Street Fighter II Turbo stemmed from the development team’s desire to introduce a “mysterious and really powerful” character, with his status as a hidden character within the game resulting from later discussions.

  • Love your Drawings :D

    Wish I could draw this, well.. it’s really early here (1:14 xD) so I might have a sleep then later on try it after lunch or something. I drew your street fighter ryu one ok but this one also needs lots of time. I also cannot do the figure drawing thing that you do and I just draw it from the paper, haha. Anyways.. it’s a really epic drawing and I hope you keep making more epic ones :D !!
