Back in 1999, I was a stone-cold Tekken 2 freak. When I heard that there was a comic being worked on, I started doing some artwork to send to the company producing it. I sent 3 pencilled pics of fighters (Kazuya, Anna and Lei Wulong), one fully drawn and colored cover-style pic and a one page fight scene with Marshall Law vs. Baek. Sent that and contact info to the company, but got no response. First thought: Man, I'm not even worth sending a rejection letter to. Later, I heard that the company either closed shop or lost the Tekken license. The comic shop I buy from never got any of the books it ordered from them, so I'm guessing that was true.
Of all the Tekken 2 pics I did, this is the one that I'm the most proud of. It's based on a Jackie Chan poster for Drunken Master, but I turned the angle of the pose a bit. Heh, I should try drawing that again, but better. Makes me want to play Tekken instead of typing out text for these gallery files...
