So for those that don’t know, Akiman is the designer and creator of Chun-Li, Zangief, and several other original SF II characters. He had a critical role in the original SF II game development.
Anyway, yesterday I watched him do a livestream and it was sort of a… humanizing moment for me. Here’s the man who had a hand in one of my favorite video games and created several characters all those years ago who have really influenced me (especially Chun-Li ) and here he is, just drawing and humming to himself like any artist might. It was kind of amazing to think about, really.
