This year I have been drawing concept art of fighting game characters. Previously, I posted live streams. Today, I’m sharing a finished art piece – Ramses II.
Ramses II in this conceptual fighting game would be the Zoner archetype. Zoners are very good at keeping their distance and striking with long-range blows. The drawback is they don’t have very much overall health. Frieza from Dragonball Fighterz and Peacock from Skullgirls fall under this archetype.
(For context, I borrowed a lot of these fighting game definitions from pages like this one on Gamerant.)
If you would like to watch how I drew Ramses II, check out this video on Youtube or on this blog. I drew him at every step in Clip Studio Paint.
You can watch me draw live on Twitch, or catch the archived streams on YouTube.
This originally aired on my Twitch channel on August 23, 2022.
Don’t mind me, just drawing Ramses II for a conceptual fighting game. Maybe one day this game will be a reality! Until then, I’m drawing character art for it. You can also watch past streams here on the blog or on my YouTube channel.
I draw on my Twitch channel almost every Tuesday and Saturday at 2 pm EST. The exceptions are when I’m out of town for stuff (or I get sick).
This year I have been drawing concept art of fighting game characters. Previously, I posted live streams. Today, I’m sharing a finished art piece – the Puppet Master character.
Puppet Master is a fighting game archetype in the character roster. Their gimmick is that they are a fighter who also controls a puppet. For this character, I decided to play with the idea of a “puppet” and make the controlled character a spirit.
My first draft was closer in concept to the Earth spirit dancers of the Bwa people in Burkina Faso. But I decided to revisit the idea and draft a few more takes. I’m very pleased with how this turned out.
If you would like to see the process of drawing this piece, check out this stream archived on YouTube and here on the blog. Each step got done in Clip Studio Paint.

I’m revisiting a personal project – drawing character concept art for a fighting game! This character is the Puppet Master archetype.
Want to see more character concept art? Want to see it drawn live? Head on over to my Twitch channel and follow me there! I stream Tuesdays and Saturdays at 2 pm EST (except during conventions or if I’m sick).
If you miss any of the streams, they get archived on my YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe – other video projects will drop between stream updates.
And be sure to subscribe to this blog. I post the character concept art I make on Twitch and post it here. Like with Charlie.
I’m at Small Press Expo this weekend! Sept 17 and 18 in Bethesda, MD. Find me at table D8, side B. Hope to see you there!
To me it only makes sense. In the comics, she’s a student of Tae Kwon Do. So why not have her put that to use in a fighting game?
She was the first character I drew as part of the character line-up for this game idea. After sketching a few ideas, I went with this pose. It captures her attitude well, I think. And then I drew her in every stage on Clip Studio Paint. (This was before I discovered the timelapse feature in Clip Studio, so sadly, I have no timelapse animation of drawing her, like I do most of the other characters).
I’ll be posting more character art as time goes on. So stay tuned!
If you would like to watch me draw these characters, I do live streams on Twitch on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 2 pm EST. So be sure to tune in sometime! Like, today even! Of course, I don’t stream if I’m out of town or sick, but I do my best to let you know ahead of time about schedule changes.
