A Gallery of Hyper Realistic Street Fighter Portraits

(click to enlarge)

Hyper realism is a digital art form I’m still wrapping my head around. Is it insanely good CGI, or is it a hybrid of real photos and computer work? Take a look for yourself and see what you think from this gallery of amazing Street Fighter portraits from artist Kode.

They feature many of the major and minor characters from the series, and yes, some renditions are better than other (ehh Dhalsim), but when they’re good, they’re spectacular, and I’m particularly fond of Ryu and Ken’s.

Check out the full selection below, and more of Kode’s work at his site.

    Is it the Street Fighter Alpha characters that are unfamiliar? If so, you’re missing out! That’s a great game.
