I guess it's cool to show these now since :iconel-grimlock: and :iconmanarama: are showing theirs.

I did four more but you'll have to buy my next artbook if you want to see them. Or the trading cards I guess.

I did these before I actually played Soul Calibur 4. Turns out Algol is slightly inaccurate.

This game is too addictive. Fighting Mitsurugi just isn't fair. I still win though. My gamertag is hattaman if you ever want to try (if you win it's because my connection's slow).

Heya, i like your Algol from SoulCalibur fan art and would like to share / feature it on my website about video game characters in an article like this one… where i write about game characters and share official art, screenshots as well as selected fan art.

Of course with full credit and a backlink to your dA gallery or any other website you prefer.

Please reply to this comment if that is okay with you

Greets and a good start into 2014!

Gah. Seems there are hundreds of great illustrations of fighting game characters done for the UFS cards some years ago but only those shared by you the artists behind there here on dA made it into the internet. Its a shame.

That hit probably had no effect on astaroth because he is a half rock.

Very cool pic, been a fan of your art for a while, cool to see that you're a SC fan too. I'd like to see anybody's Mitsurugi beat my Siegfried tho!

ahhhh! i love it I'm an Ivy girl Forever tho =]
Neobakeneko's avatar boyfriend uses mitsurugi all the time, and any character he creates, has that style. It's totally pointless to play against him. But I am getting better :D and if he picks any other character I've got a good 60% of kickin' his ass :D

learn to anticipate his moves and guard impact. Set up a character with auto impact and impact edge too.

LOL like that gonna really work on me and by the way this artwork is stupid it should be the opposite since astaroth is bigger and stronger maybe I can show you what you are dealing with fight me on SC4 my PSN is espada9000.
Neobakeneko's avatar
Yea, guard impact seems to be the only thing that saves me in those fights. Those attributes are through the character or the weapons? Cuz I know when we fight we use standard versus so the weapons attributes don't count.

oh, well you're luck might just be worse if you played special versus. Mitsurugi has auto unblockable attacks.
