Nuri's artistic style is perfect for fighting game characters

We're kicking off the weekend here on EventHubs with a gallery from an artist by the name of Nuri. Nuri (also known as ActionHankBeard) has a very distinct cartoon style that seems to cause every one of his subjects to simply drip with personality.

Characters from all over the fighting game world make appearances today as get to see figures from Darkstalkers, Street Fighter, Soul Calibur, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Marvel vs. Capcom, Super Smash Bros., and Soul Calibur.

These seem to have a simultaneous seriousness and lightheartedness to them, but you can almost always tell exactly what kind of mood each of these characters are in. It's hard to pick out a favorite, but Ivy, Chun, Wolverine, and Morrigan are definitely in the running.

Nuri's inspiration and subjects clearly stem from all over the pop culture world, not just fighting games. In our compilation of today's gallery, we also noticed some awesome drawings of characters from the Friday films, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and plenty of other iconic properties, and so we'd recommend you check out the artist's art page and Twitch stream for more.

You can request commissions if you'd like a personalized piece for yourself, and please consider donating at Nuri's Patreon page if you like what you see and want to ensure this talented individual can keep making this beautiful art.

Before you do any of that, however, check out our selection via the gallery below and be sure to shout out your favorites in the comments after you're done.
