Balrog is a heavily built, very muscular boxer. He wears blue boxing trunks with white trim and a torn white shirt under a blue tank top. He wears red boxing gloves and boxing shoes. He lacks a canine tooth in the upper right side of his mouth and his hairstyle consists of short hair in what appears to be wide cornrows – this hairstyle is similar to Mike Tyson’s haircuts from the time Street Fighter II was made. Balrog is a self-centered, hot-tempered, arrogant, flippant, self-seeking and sadistic pugilist who possesses an insatiable urge for money.

Here is a final drawing of Balrog from Street Fighter.

Below are step by step process of how I draw Balrog from Street Fighter. Step one, I start drawing simple geometry shapes to get the basic shapes down. It is an easy way to sketch out just shape first. Step two, I then draw over more detail on his face and body structure. It is very important to get correct shape, proportion, and accuracy for initial sketch. Remember to always observe the character with keen eyes then keep it simple and keep the foundation correct before going on to the next step.
