Okay, i hope that a lot artists participate in this contest to kick off 2013 on FGE in a really cool way for a really cool oldschool fighting game series, so i thought..okay..if over 20 artists participate, it better has 3 winners instead of only one. this means, instead of "only" a 12 Month Premium Account here on dA for the number 1 winner, gold and silver are getting something too!

2nd Prize 3 Month dA Premium Subscription
3rd Prize 1 Month dA Premium Subscription

Good luck and much fun to you in this contest and some love for Earthquake, TamTam and Wan Fu!!

The long running but almost dead weapon based fighting game series by SNK featuring a crazy cast of over 50 characters like Haohmaru, Amakusa, Charlotte, Galford and many many more.

This contest is of course meant as a challenge for all artists, but also to tribute this great series of fighting games and change the fact that almost no related art is created for it except a few Haohmaru, Genjuro and Hanzo Hattori stuff from time to time.
