Capcom's Street Fighter Anatomy Reference Guide


The fleshed out, "exaggerated" and vibrant art style that made Capcom's influential Street Fighter series stand out in the mid-90's has had an undeniable impact on the gaming genre over the past 3 decades... inspiring fighting game fans, aspiring 2D artists, and countless game developers alike. In April 2017, Capcom Art Director Toshiyuki Kamei shared some "top secret" pages from the mysterious and heavily-rumored-about Capcom anatomy reference guide (actually a godsend to to all 2D/3D artists). The guide was edited by legendary Capcom artist, Akura "Akiman" Yasuda and was originally compiled during the mid-90's - yeah, during the heyday of some of the most artistically beloved 2D fighters of them all.








Capcom's Toshiyuki Kamei mentioned that this anatomy guide is a "pretty old" document, but that it's "still very valuable" to Capcom. You can view some additional images from the guide over at Capcom's Japanese blog.
