The Puppet Master – Fighting Game Concept Art

an elf with dark brown skin sits in the air, wearing a neon green mask made of wood. Behind her floats an ethereal masked spirit with enlarged, clawed hands.

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.

That’s all for now. Thank you for reading!

You. Are. Awesome.
