Cool off from the summer heat with Overlord_JC's refreshing fighting game artwork

You already know an artist is of a particular caliber when they're featured in Udon Entertainment, but Overlord_JC may be a cut above the rest.

We've been glancing through his wonderful fighting game art and have come across a handful of refreshing Street Fighter summertime drawings that feel perfect for those of us wrestling with the heat, but that's not where the fun stops.

In addition to the likes of Juri, Karin, Makoto, Ibuki, R. Mika, and others lounging around the beach or at the pool, JC also has some captivating takes on characters from other fighting games such as Guilty Gear Strive's Millia Rage or Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Pyra and Mythra.

I think my personal favorite of this bunch might be Sakura getting ready to swim a few laps, but the images of Juri in the surf and Ibuki and R. Mika standing in knee-deep water are both awesome as well.

The way JC illustrates the water's surface as it's either broken or swelling in various ways is a wonderful detail that can be easy to miss. The technique and execution here are both great, and it's the little details that take these images to the next level.

Give the gallery below a look through and let us know your thoughts in the comments afterwards. There's plenty more where this came from, and so maybe you'll see a bit more from JC here on EventHubs before summer is over.
