Hosted by Kris Bather and Mladen Luketin from Western Australia, ES is a weekly podcast filled with news, reviews and pop culture shenanigans. Kris (loyal superhero fan) and Mladen (manga, anime and indie defender) chat about their varying, and occasional overlapping, interests in the wonderful world of sequential art.

Darkstalkers Art Contest

From the fine folks at Udon (the publishers of the Street Fighter comics), comes an opportunity to become the next big thing. Well, have some of your art published anyway. Like they did with their successful Street Fighter tribute book, Udon are now putting together a similar tome for the lesser-known Darkstalkers game franchise. The deadline for submitting your art is March 1, and the entry form and rules can be seen here. Press release below.



Darkstalkers is Capcom’s horror-infused fighting game, filled with strange creatures and mysterious temptresses, loved by tens of thousands of fans around the world. 2009 is the 15th anniversary of the franchise and, to celebrate the property’s rich history, UDON Entertainment is producing an all-new full color art book – Darkstalkers Tribute.

The Darkstalkers fans who were young players when the franchise first launched are now grown up, but their love of the game continues. This high quality art book will showcase a cross section of brand new artistic interpretations of the Darkstalkers cast in a series of full size pin-up style illustrations. The book will launch this summer with UDON’s convention content and then be released in stores next fall.

UDON artists and other comic, video game and freelance illustrators have been invited to interpret their favourite Darkstalkers characters for inclusion in this special book. Along with these invited artists UDON is sending out a widespread open art submission call to the video game fan artist community to submit artwork for possible inclusion in the tribute volume.

You could be part of Capcom history as part of the Darkstalkers Tribute art book and have your artwork showcased alongside top names in the industry! It’s time to show UDON and Capcom your unique vision of Darkstalkers!
