Also, doodle Trunks guest stars

There wasn't a ton of fighting game art to be found on ShuichiWada's Twitter page, but the 10 images we did find are all well worth sharing.

It's clear that the Japanese artist has a preference for drawing the more feminine fighters (save for a great Super Saiyan Trunks sketch). It's also clear that they're exceedingly good at what they do as we found ourselves melting at the sight of Android 18's icy blue eyes upon first viewing.

We won't shy away from the fact that Shuichi's subjects aren't missing much in the "sex appeal" department. We're certainly used to seeing the usually exceptionally curvy figures of Cammy, Morrigan, and Mai, but these surely stand out as a notable cut above the average.

Boobs and butts aside, the facial features on many of these characters tell stories all by themselves. Back to 18's icy eyes, you'll notice they're actually fairly hazy and relatively low as far as detail (which actually may be precisely why they're so attention-grabbing). This, along with the ever so subtle smile and the tried and true hair brush back nearly give us an animated glimpse of the still the character.

The fading detail of the Morrigan piece is wonderful as well. The viewer's eyes are immediately drawn to one particular place (we'll let you note where) but it's actually the diminishing specifics that pull our gaze out and about the rest of the image.

We also get a pair of alternate takes on two of these, Cammy and Zero Suit Samus, as the former gets a post-fight look and the latter is seen in both realistic and toon-like styles.
