Darkstalkers Art Tribute Contest


Surely this will be of interest to the  artistic minded readers out there. Darkstalkers is like Street Fighter, but not as popular, you could say. It’s mired more in fantasy than anything else, but like most of Capcom’s franchises, it has its fans. Udon produced a successful Street Fighter tribute book recently, and now they’re opening up the doors for entries for their Darkstalkers tribute book. The deadline is March 1 and the official skinny is below.


Given the success and fan glee generated by last year’s Street Fighter Tribute book, many of you asked us whether or not we’d do another Tribute book. Finally, we can answer that question.

Talking at length with Capcom and checking the dates, we saw that Capcom’s other popular fighting game franchise was celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2009, and it all fell into place. 

So… after much speculation/expectation, we’re very proud to announce Darkstalkers Tribute!

Go here for contest details and a standardized entry form for art sample submissions. Please help us spread the word about this contest by sending the link around and telling all your friends.

Darkstalkers is not as well known as Street Fighter but the fanbase is rabid and the characters are just as distinctive and engaging. Considering that Street Fighter Tribute arrived to rave reviews, we’re very excited to see the artwork we get this time out.

Even if you won a spot in the Street Fighter Tribute book you’ll have to push yourself even harder this time. Expect the competition to be stiff as even more artists from around the world send us their artwork. Go for quality and a distinctive approach. Show us what you can do.
