Sagat, Ken, Ryu, Akuma. This illustration was made by Japanese artist Edayan who has worked on multiple Street Fighter games. These dynamic illustrations are the last Street Fighter characters he drew for Capcom.
This sequential piece of art of Ryu performing a Hadouken was the basis for the opening animation of Super Street Fighter II™. It was the first game since the original Street Fighter II™ that utilized completely new and more powerful hardware. This allowed for new graphics and more complex animations and the old Street Fighter II opening screen got replaced therefore with this new, more characteristic one of Ryu performing his trademark move. The illustration has been made by Akiman.
