Zangief by JayAxer Zangief by JayAxer
Street Fighter's USSR rep. Never been able to use him efficiently, though a friend of mine can do proper damage. Zangief is always good for a laugh with his over the top expressions and always has a hug for his friends.
Pencil and ink on cheap typing paper, tossed into Painter IX. Much love.

Excellent rendition of Zangief here...You don't find too many these days...Love the cape...Nice way of drawing his signature red boots...Very crazy way you drew his expession, pose, and all-around appearance, but with all that apparent that what makes him look wicked cool...Thankx for this and please keep drawing.

love the style...the definition in the face is drawn like afro samurai character...what style is that called? i know a local graff artist who does pieces with characters like that...dope design on my favorite character...

Nicelly done! I never like too much this goofy style that Capcom gave to him. He is a killing machine...ont the right hands, he can kill the opponent in seconds.

How many heads I'd nailed on the floor with ScrewPilerDriver

I loved him in the movie, so silly! My brother liked to use him in the game. I used cammy and kicked his butt though.

Great posing and colouring.

The muscular structure looks quite awesome! The skin rendering is quite wicked as well!

There is nothing better than mastering a Lv. 3 Final Atomic Buster without jumping and wipe out your opponents MWAHAHAHA....

Oh, back to the main thing, it looks a mix between the original and the Pocket Fighter character. Very well done and smooth body lines. Great work!

ZANGIEF!! yay! ^___^

XD Dood! Zangief is adorable, and only because he tries to make himself seem so serious and yet will always remain the noval character that he is. He tries, bless - but i've seen him used really well in the games, so never underestimate him, me thinks :D

Excellent, by the way - I love his cape and his expression. The colouring is really groovy, as well as the anatomy.
Eggplantm Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
Awesome! Zangief remains one of my favorite Street Fighter characters. I loved that a lot of people thought he sucked until they ran into someone who really knows how to use him. If he was such a bad character, why did they keep restricting his abilities in every version? anyway this is a great pic and not just because I love the character.

Heh, I haven't seen this guy around for a long while. I've never been able to use him, either. =D

Wow, that looks great! The expression you used on him is cool, too. XD

You did an awesome job with his anatomy. All the muscles turned out so well, and he almost looks like he's actually alive! Hehe. Very well drawn and colored.
tornadot Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2005
Cool job on the drawing. He is a pretty funny character, very easy to fight though (Just keep him away from you) but the funny thing is that he is gay, according to Capcom which puts him in a whole new light now...he'd make mincemeat of anyone from the WWE, that's for sure.
tsunamidusher Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
HAHA!! Yeah! Teh Gief!

This is a style of him I could easily get used to. Top Notch! :D

Fucking great, fav!!!
Shabutaro Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2005
haha he reminds me of Mr. T XD...but white. when i first saw this i thought he was giving me the finger. you draw hands very well and the coloring defines where the knuckles are. do you use hand references or you just picture it in your head?
Pretty crazy!
blackladybinary Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2005
Awesome as always :3 Very big and bulky, and he looks like he'll kick your ass without any questions. The coloring is very cool, and it makes him look shiney :D Very good, very good!
