Allen Snider 2017 by Arak-8 Allen Snider 2017 by Arak-8
I guess it's true what they say...if you wait long enough,your wish may come true,and this one did for a SF fan like me.
At long last,Arika the game company who collaborated with Capcom with their recent classic STREET FIGHTER EX trilogy have at last brought back my #1 fighter from the original SF EX..ALLEN SNIDER himself!

This new pic of him in his new fighting togs is from the actual official press pics of him and I did the best I could to copy down the style of his new costume.

I admit,I like some of his new costume,but man despite it being patriotic,it sure is pretty gaudy and a huge departure from his old purple gi,ah well beggars can't be chosers.

Anyways,I am so happy they at last brought this dude back,and as the words in the pic's about damn time at that!

I can't wait to see him in action in the new upcoming fighting game that ARIKA are hard at work on.

ALLEN--he rules,next to Ken and Dan that is!

The only thing that could make it even better is if Allen's return bring with him the bonus games from Fighting Layer where you fight a Shark, Tiger, Hawk, or a Knight. (or the Sattelite Fall bonus game from EX2 Plus)
Tho since it is a fighter and mirror matches are a given, his classic purple Gi could come back as an alt.
The only thing that could make me even more happy is seeing Kairi's Shoki Hatsudo beam Super back in action.

Heh,yeah maybe it could at that. And yes,even though I never got to play Fighting Layer(that's a rare hard to find arcade game and they should've released it for the PS1 years ago.)I get what you mean because I did watch some videos of that game on YouTube.

And man,those were some freaky weird bonus games in it,a shark and a knight even. I think we'll just have to wait and see what arika has in store for us with this new game.

And I also have other Allen and street fighter related pics in my gallery,feel free to check them out,and of course thanks for the comment Robothobo,I get more faves here from anyone than actual good comments.

And you know who else is a cool obscure red haired street fighter character? SNK's GAI TENDO,you ever heard of him?

I guess Fighting Layer didn't do as hot as ARIKA and Namco intended and didn't bother with it since ARIKA were probably already working on EX2 and 3 around then. 
I always found it odd tho that Allen and Blair never came back for at least EX3. Not sure if it was because Namco owned the rights for those characters at the time or something like that, weird. I think one of two of tho their moves may have been included in Ace's "Customize" options in EX3. Nothin' beats a good ol' "TREPAL BREEAK" (Ahhh, how I love classic fighting game Engrish)

I'll definitely give a look since your art looks pretty awesome. 
I know the feeling of so many faves yet no comment feedback. Kinda the reason I took a break for a while before I got back into the swing of drawing. (and making taking a drawing class and making some OCs also gives some great motivation)

I'm actually still exploring SNK's library of fighters, my most recent pick-up being King of Fighters '99 for PS1. Tho from what I've seen, Gai seems to be just as hot-blooded as good ol' Allen is!
That actually reminds me, one of my fave obscure characters was almost a redhead during the Beta of his game. Ken "Godhand" Mishima from Ehrgeiz: God Bless the Ring.

Thanks for the reply pesona,it's like a desert around here for me right now trying to get a comment or fave out of anyone.

I know there's an awful lot of competition here,but it looks like the competition is whipping me like a dog.

But I guess i'd better just's an art gallery,not a contest,and I do it because I enjoy it. That's the way to look at it.

yeah i know what you mean i just do art cause its fun 
i dont do it for the likes and views i do it cause it makes m happy to draw 

and u are so right its an art gallery not a competition
