  1. Not even a fraction of a second. Left to right, top then bottom: Ryu, E. Honda, Blanka, Guile, Ken, Chun Li, Zangief and Dhalsim.

    I’m not even much of a Street Fighter II fan, but wow, I’m stunned at how well that works. I want to re-create this at super high resolution and print out a poster for my wall.

    Took me a lot longer. I finally realized that the two on the left looked like ken and ryu, then I put it all together.
