Sako's love, Tokido's tears and lots of Menats; these fighting game paintings from SAE are powerful

We stumbled across some pretty great art from Japanese fighting game enthusiast SAE0407.

SAE's primarily watercolor style is different from a lot of the visual pieces we see here on EventHubs, and seems to inspire a naturally more tranquil emotion.

The artist primarily focuses on characters from within games (mainly Street Fighter 5) but also has a few pieces featuring players FOX|Tokido and FA|Sako.

We see Sako with his baby girl (dressed appropriately as Menat) and then the Murderface, Tokido, with tears streaming down his cheek... presumably after his emotional loss to CYG|Daigo back at Kemonomichi 2.

Give the gallery a look through and let us know what you think of this impressive art in the comments after you're done.
