For those not in the know of current British Politics (you’re missing out, clearly) there’s a bit of competition between Gordon Brown (Prime Minister, left) and David Cameron (Leader of the opposition, right).
Just to clarify, I’m not some angry youth trying to project my voice, it all started with a rather cool photo on the front of the Guardian Newspaper last week. Brown and Cameron were both at a 38% poll and the photo comparing each other made me instantly think of versus screens (see inspiration file on my site) on all fighting games.
Although I’m sure they wouldn’t lift a fist to each other (well, some might, and some have) the photo had that kind of feeling to it all. Besides, it’s put an interesting spin on politics for me at least!
This is nothing too special, I just wanted a chance to draw these two characters. Very simple colour with lots of cheap Street Fighter style effects – especially the ‘VS’ text which I thought was unique until I spotted Street Fighter Alpha 2’s…
