cool story. I don't care. Every artist draws her different, I still haven't decided the way I want to draw her. If everyone drew her the same way then we'd be copying and stealing another artist's style. We're taking Felicia and drawing her in our OWN eyes. To bash an artist for their interpretation of a character just makes you seem petty and ignorant.
depends on what you go by. The reference i used from The Darkstalkers Manga printed by Udon Comics has it as fur across her forehead. The same in Marvel Vs Capcom 3. You make a valid point, but it's up to interpretation. you say hairband, others say fur. Just like in 94 when Darkstalkers came out, people thought she wore a bikini of sorts. Now we all say its fur. Next time you want to "help" with a flaw in artwork, don't be such an ass.
Well, that last statement being put like that.... I'll say this. No, it's not up to interpretation. The concept art is the end all be all of felicia. It states she has a hairband, there's no arguing against it.
MVC3 also has it as a hairband, I have the 3D model myself.
Udon comics obviously doesn't know what they're doing, and because they were too lazy to be bothered to look up the concept artwork, they missed that little detail. Other Udon comic artists got it right, only the silly retard responsible for drawing the pages failed to draw Felicia correctly.
Really, all I did was post a link. You came to the conclusion I was being an ass based on what I how I was talking in the deviation.
You are being ass. You post on my artwork a link leading to a bitch fit of how "fucktards can't draw Felicia right." Like I said if you wanted to help you could have simply said "I think Felicia's fur on her head is actually a hairband, I have concept art that shows this."
And it is up to interpretation, because when I look at her concept art It doesn't look like a hairband to me. Thats how I see it, thats how I INTERPRET what I see in that art. Granted the original game art does have it circling around her head and not as a crown like in the Udon Comics (and i'm sure they are more successful than you or I will ever be in our meager lives so they're doing something right). Regardless I don't care, I think the Udon design looks cuter. I suppose you want me to make her as horridly disproportional as that concept art to? Her arms are to long, waist to small and her pelvis is insanely undersized giving her a spine and ass that looks scrunched up, not to mention those shoulders you could land a plane on. I prefer the Udon design done by that artist. When it comes to those old fighting games It's not that big a deal, there's not much you can gather from a sprite that size. I drew this while homeless and when you live in your car you don't have access to the internet to fact check a god-damned hair band. The only thing I ever argue about with her is her eye color, as far as I know it's green But it looks just as good if they were blue, but I'm not going to call an artist a talent-less hack if he/she makes her blue eyed. And if the original concept is the end all, well then everyone (including the darkstalkers games!) need to back up and stop drawing her as a catholic nun who loves to sing and dance because she was originally pitched as a stripper who was the sultry sexaholic until they found Morrigan to be "hotter/mature" and Felicia to be "Cuter/childish" plus it was easy since Morrigan is a succubus and all. These side-scrollers change over time, very little is set in stone. Art is expression, express it as YOU the ARTIST see fit. Now good day sir!
