SuperFooStar's pop art-style fighting game artwork

A Juri that would make Andy Warhol proud

Benjamin "SuperFooStar" Faris brings some very unique work to the fighting game community as we look over his intriguing character artwork.

It's been a while since my Film in Modern Art class, so if this doesn't technically fit the exact definition of "pop art," my apologies. I will say that the heavy use of the dotted halftone pattern effect instantly takes us to the prominent style of the 1950's and 60's.

Foo's art is quite nuanced, and in going back through and giving it some detailed attention we notice small themes and preferences. One such example is the way the artist likes to show only one eye for many of their characters.

Sometimes this is achieved simply by drawing the character's profile, but other times one of the eyes is deliberately left out with a patch of blank skin in its place.

Let us know if you recognize any other details like this, and please chime into the comments with your general reactions to the gallery as well as your favorite pieces from it.
