You wish you thought of this minimalist Street Fighter 2 art

Shares

What do you see when the above pic strikes your ocular cavities? A bunch of horizontal colored lines, you say? Philistine. That white splotch with a red stripe is Ryu from the Street Fighter series’ victory pose. Wait, you don’t see it? Well, UK illustrator and SCE Europe UI artist Ashley Browning does, and now, so will you.


From his website, Browning says it’s a one-off piece, and a departure from the usual Videogame Minimalism pieces that he’s known –and oft-imitated- for. “

This time, the idea was to go really, really basic. Initially, it felt like a Bauhaus/De Stijl inspired piece, but once it was finished, it also looked like the primitive graphics from Atari 2600 or Intellivision consoles.”

The keen t-shirt buyers among you can wear this image proudly on their chest if you hit MySoti.com. The rest of us are either just cultureless buffoons or jive ass turkeys. Either or.

    Very cool. I wish they were available as a series of prints instead of just a T-shirt.

    Dhalsim is too white, not accurate! But what an incredible t-shirt, looks so damned awesome.

    Very innovative!

    I recognized most of these right away and I've barely played Street Fighter. They're very cool.

    Proud to say I can identify all eight World Warriors- Ryu, Honda, Blanka, Guile, Ken, Chun-Li, Zangief, Dhalsim. Go Street Fighter Maniacs!

    This makes me proud of my brain

    Neat concept... never really thought about just how iconic these characters' colour schemes are. Was instantly able to get them all. Having said that though, why the heck would you buy one of these when you could easily reproduce it yourself at one of those novelty shirt places?
  • Felixthecat - August 10, 2010 2:11 a.m.

    Ryu, Ken, Blanka, Guile, E. Honda, Dhalsim, Zangief and Chun-Li. They're pretty schnazzy.
  • shyfonzie - August 10, 2010 2:10 a.m.

    Now that's a classy game shirt.
  • TheWebSwinger - August 10, 2010 1:48 a.m.

    This is pretty damn inspired.
  • mastersword369 - August 10, 2010 1:18 a.m.

    I only got Ryu, Ken, Blanka, Chun Lee and Guile, from never playing street fighter in my life.
  • yoyoguy - August 10, 2010 1:14 a.m.

  • lovinmyps3 - August 10, 2010 1:07 a.m.

    Ryu, ?, Blanka, Guile, Ken, Chun Li, Zangief, ?. Second and last are the only ones I couldn't get.

    @BlankBrush You need to learn how to read.
  • 510BrotherPanda - August 10, 2010 12:51 a.m.

    Whoa, Ryu, Honda, Blanka, Guile, Ken, Chun Li, Zangief and Dhalsim... I'm surprised no other artists thought of this before! Genius!
  • BlankBrush - August 10, 2010 12:48 a.m.

    I can spot ALL the characters!But wheres Abel? My fav character. MAKE MORE OF THESE! Also, THE GAME!!
  • Metroidhunter32 - August 10, 2010 12:48 a.m.

    These are kinda cool, but not being a street fighter fan, I can only recongize 2-3
