Street Fighter's USSR rep. Never been able to use him efficiently, though a friend of mine can do proper damage. Zangief is always good for a laugh with his over the top expressions and always has a hug for his friends.
Pencil and ink on cheap typing paper, tossed into Painter IX. Much love.

Excellent rendition of Zangief here...You don't find too many these days...Love the cape...Nice way of drawing his signature red boots...Very crazy way you drew his expession, pose, and all-around appearance, but with all that apparent that what makes him look wicked cool...Thankx for this and please keep drawing.

Nicelly done! I never like too much this goofy style that Capcom gave to him. He is a killing machine...ont the right hands, he can kill the opponent in seconds.

How many heads I'd nailed on the floor with ScrewPilerDriver

I loved him in the movie, so silly! My brother liked to use him in the game. I used cammy and kicked his butt though.

Great posing and colouring.

The muscular structure looks quite awesome! The skin rendering is quite wicked as well!

There is nothing better than mastering a Lv. 3 Final Atomic Buster without jumping and wipe out your opponents MWAHAHAHA....

Oh, back to the main thing, it looks a mix between the original and the Pocket Fighter character. Very well done and smooth body lines. Great work!

XD Dood! Zangief is adorable, and only because he tries to make himself seem so serious and yet will always remain the noval character that he is. He tries, bless - but i've seen him used really well in the games, so never underestimate him, me thinks :D

Excellent, by the way - I love his cape and his expression. The colouring is really groovy, as well as the anatomy.

Awesome! Zangief remains one of my favorite Street Fighter characters. I loved that a lot of people thought he sucked until they ran into someone who really knows how to use him. If he was such a bad character, why did they keep restricting his abilities in every version? anyway this is a great pic and not just because I love the character.

Heh, I haven't seen this guy around for a long while. I've never been able to use him, either. =D
