Capcom continues their delve into the designs that didn't make the cut for Street Fighter 5's latest DLC characters. Over on the Shadaloo C.R.I. website, the company added another blog entry showcasing the rejected artwork for Final Fight veteran and SF5 newcomer, Poison.

Last time, we were given a look at the different ideas for fellow Final Fight character Lucia. Now we get a glimpse at what concepts the development team had in mind for the whip wielding contender.

The blog entry doesn't give us much in the way of details for these design ideas, unfortunately. According to Google's translation, it does mention that we're seeing more Final Fight content in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition due to the series celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

While Poison's final iteration sees her with her new haircut, it looks like there were indeed designs that incorporated her traditional long hairdo. Of course, the long hair was added to her Nostalgia costume, so it did end up making it into the game.

There are a variety of different styles to these rejected designs. In one of the pieces, we see Poison rocking a big, puffy camouflage coat with an explorer's hat on.

On the other side of the spectrum, we see a Poison wearing a frilly dress with thigh-high stockings and heels.

Interestingly enough, we don't see any pieces of art that resemble Poison's actual default costume in Street Fighter 5 — though it is mainly an updated version of her original look. We do, however, see various elements that made it into her other costumes in-game.
