That Picture of Ryu. by gammon That Picture of Ryu. by gammon
This is a picture of Tony Hawk, moments after the advent exhibition of his newly perfected 1080. An otherwise eclat performance, now a photo of memorial.

Tony Hawk has passed away.

A combination of the ill-conceived relocation of the X-Games to Ryu's backyard, and Ryu's own genuine excitement, lead to his untimely demise.

The picture was taken in the final moments of the 1080 as he banked off the back of a koi fish. Sadly, Tony Hawk's masterstroke was unable to be captured. Ryu, so thrilled by Tony's showmanship lead to the premature evocation of a hadouken. He was vaporized in the mere preparation of the technique before the 1080 was completed. His glory unseen, but not unfelt. The tender presence of Tony Hawk's remains blanket the forest in the background. If you look closely, a warm smile can be seen as he is dispersed back into the verdant loving arms of the green mother. His ashes a reminder, Ryu is a busy man, and he doesn't get out often. So keep the excitement to a minimum.

May he rest in peace, forever with nature, and the word of his majestic final stunt unforgotten.

His name was Tony Hawk.

Just saw this on the capcom community page. This one stands out as the only one with this super intense feeling of combat. I feel like there's a hadouken flying at my face just by looking at this.

Yeah, actually, it seems I might. "A certain somebody" was wondering how far along you've gotten on "that certain project." He hasn't heard back from you.

You know, the one we're not allowed to comment or speculate on here?

Definitely a solid piece, but if you'd like a little bit of critique, I do see an area that could be improved. It's very small, so you may not even feel the need to correct it, but Ryu's pinky on his right hand seems a tad large, as it seems about the same size as the rest of his fingers. An easy fix would be to just move it more behind the other fingers.

No worries, it's still a really awesome piece, I had to really scan it over to find that little area alone, but I'm sure as an artist, you like hearing where you can improve just as much as you like hearing praise for your work lol.
