Epic Fan-made Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Splash

In honor of the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom 2 360/PS3 re-release, Steven Chase whipped up this truly epic promotional splash, worthy of gracing just about anybody's desktop:

A portion of Steven's commentary:
What were my resources?
• The art of Wolverine and Ryu are the promotional images drawn by Udon Entertainment for the re-release.
• All of the portraits along the bottom are from the original Arcade/Dreamcast/Playstation 2/Xbox releases of the game, found on Creative Uncut's art archive. Some characters were missing, and I found the rest through Google Image search.
• All of the logos were found on Google Image search.

What did I do?
• Aside from Storm and Magneto, all of the portraits below were very crisp and clean. I had to sharpen Storm and Magneto up myself, and it's noticeable if you're looking for it.
• I added all of the lightning effects, inserted the lightning radiating from Ryu's palms and the clash separating Wolverine and Ryu down the middle, and did some basic hue/transparency altering to give everything the same tone and shade.
Hankering for a download? You can find two variations of the splash at right here.

Thanks for pointing this out Steven, awesome job.

  4. Is it just me or does Ryu not have a portrait at the bottom like Wolverine does?

    I got un-lazy and looked back into it.

    The font used for MARVEL, CAPCOM, and the giant 2 in the center is "Base01".

    The font used for NEW AGE OF HEROES is "Dirty Ego."

    You can download both at www.dafont.com

    Nathan: I actually addressed this in my Capcom-Unity post. There are two separate Wolverines in the 56 character line-up: Adamanatium-claws and bone-claws. Each occupies a separate slot in the roster and even has unique artwork.

    And to correct my previous post, the font is actually called Base02, not Base01. If Base01 exists, I do not know what it is like.

  7. Ah, I see. I honestly never played MvC2(though I've always wanted to I just could never find it) so I didn't know about that. Still a great piece of art.
