So Capcom's well-known ex-artist Akiman posted on his twitter the very first sketch of Chun-li, drawn at the beginning of the game's development. Why would we care about this, you wonder...?

...Probably not, since I put it in the thread's subtitle but still... tongue.gif

One Japanese actually commented on the two girls' similar looks and asked, but Akiman doesn't seem like he's going to answer, unfortunately. IMO, I think it's pretty obvious the early influence, specially since this was apparently done around 1989 (before Final Fight), so Strider was still relatively recent. I wish he'd had included the text though, but ah well...
