Update: Capcom asks Street Fighter 5 players to draw their main characters from memory with results varying from surprisingly good to funny as hell

Update: Capcom Fighters has uploaded part two of their player drawings this time focusing on commentators and the Wednesday Night Fight crew / regulars likes IFC|YipeS, Vicious, Tempo|Alex Myers, James Chen, Logansama, Stupendous, ESE|Sherry Jenix and Dankadillas among others. You can find all three compiled images after the jump.

Somehow Combo Breaker is almost two weeks behind us already, yet it is still finding new ways to provide us with wholesome fighting game entertainment thanks to the community.

It appears as though one of the representatives for Capcom at the major event went around and asked top players and community members to draw their main characters on a white board completely from memory. The results speak for themselves and should probably give you a chuckle or two.

Some of the portraits turned out surprisingly well considering they weren't allowed to use references and were forced to draw on a white board. Liquid|John Takeuchi, GRPT|Gllty, GG|Vegapatch and especially XO|Mahreen were able to do great work with their limited resources.

We are most certainly not going to belittle or put down any one of the players here that agreed to this and tried though we can still get a kick out of UYU|BornFree's rendering of Akuma and Todakai's Blanka-chan.

Some other players that got roped into this by Capcom include Neon, CYG|Gamerbee, SB|DoomSnake, NVD|Phenom, NVD|Veggey, GRPT|Gllty, NASR|AngryBird, RB|Luffy, Mago and CYG|PR Balrog among others.

Apparently we have more drawings to look forward to considering that Capcom Fighters has since posted that there will be more coming shortly, but until then you can check out the first collection below — and do please try to keep the comments friendly and positive here.
