"I’ve always loved Ibuki and Makoto in Street Fighter III. It was nice to see more female characters added to the roster. This basically emerged from Makoto and Ibuki’s “rival” sequence whenever the two meet in game before a match….through my warped, yuri-goggles… although, this seems more like an aftermath pic. lol I wanted to go with a softer, warmer palette for this while maintaining a sketchy feel. Also went for more anime-ish features on their faces. This was strictly to appease my inner fan-girl. Moment over."
