This is an original design based on the game "Rival Schools" for a Capcom art contest on a forum called DrawStick. The entries were great, so there was little chance of me winning, but I hope at least maybe a few people will like my design.

I wanted to create a character who can kick some butt and someone I can relate to- the Artist! This guy has a lot of frustrations in life and vents his feelings though his art and fighting (of course!)- using a variety of media to get the job done.

His stats & Story:

Sex: Male
Home life: Living with his Japanese mother. His Korean father works over seas.
Likes: Reading manga, being creative, RPGs.
Dislikes: People watching him, Girly things.
Special talents: Making things, fixing broken things.
School: Recent Transfer to Gedo HS.
Subjects good at: Art and any that make use of computers.
Subjects bad at: Japanese, Mathematics, English.
Part-time job: Draws and sells caricatures in the mall after school instead of doing homework.

Spending many hours working on his artwork and original comic book stories, Sosuke has become a real perfectionist. He takes criticism very badly- and this can provoke his violent streak! Daigo noticed his strong fighting spirit during an “art criticism incident” and asked him to join his gang. Edge is jealous of Sosuke as Edge takes great pride in his “Gedo gang patrol teams” logo designs but thinks they seem worthless compared to anything Sosuke might draw.
Although polite and friendly with fellow class mates, Sosuke spends much of his time alone to concentrate on his personal projects and goals. He doesn’t engage much in social chit-chat although he realises this is giving the girls the impression he’s not interested, despite having a secret crush on Akira. He regrets his attitude most when he sees her helping Gan with homework instead of him!
As with other artists, Sosuke has a keen eye for detail and can quickly pick up and mimic movies he has seen performed by others. He is able to launch projectile attacks in the form of various artistic media which he keeps in his pockets and school bag.

I never got around to colouring these character images for the contest, but I'm glad I finally got around to completing these designs for my own personal satisfaction ^_^

Sosuke was also entered into the IMAF contest and his character select pose was featured in the London 'Evening Standard' newpaper under the IMAF event listings

Wow, this is really awesome. I can really relate to this character. I'm always drawing when I'm supposed to be doing something else..oh, and I hate math too.
