As the Webmaster of FightersGeneration.com... Allow me to introduce TFG's Featured Artist.
 

BACKSTORY:  Jet and I originally met at a mall arcade around the year 2000, when Marvel VS Capcom 2 first hit the scene. Ahh the memories. . . we were undisputedly the top two players at our local arcade. Over time, Jet and I became known among the arcade regulars for breaking each other's ridiculous win streaks (usually upwards of 30 to 40 wins) upon arrival to the arcade (no mercy for the mall scrubs!). After a few insanely close matches, eventually, one of us would send the other back to the token machine with a "good game," leaving the crowd in awe. Furthermore, we were both known for being proficient with Guile in our MVC2 teams (which was ironic, since nobody used Guile in MVC2). This only added fuel to our rivalry, of course. . .

Some time later, we crossed paths at a local coffee shop. I saw Jet drawing in a sketchbook at his table, something that immediately caught my attention (being a casual pencil artist myself). He had a hot girl with him too, which also caught my attention. ^o^ Long story short, it wasn't long before we became good friends after discovering we share uncannily similar passions in life. . . a common love for drawing since childhood, martial arts, collecting toys, Marvel comics, Asian culture (although that's a given for Jet), a similar taste in music, and of course, fighting games. Even back then, we shared the same appreciation for artwork - more specifically: Marvel, Capcom, SNK & Namco art! Upon realizing this, there's no doubt that I had found a kindred spirit.

Wow Jet, can you believe we've been friends for almost 15 years now? After countless gaming sessions (notably MVC2, Tekken Tag Tournament, Tekken 5 & Soul Calibur 2)... Epic CardFighters Clash battles at Starbucks (accompanied by the third musketeer, Josuke)... 100's of drawing sessions... Travels to distant lands... and... after all the unforgettable, crazy good times, we're family. Not to be sappy here, but I'm a lucky guy to have met such a true friend in my lifetime.

Rock on.

 
Over the years, Jet has taught me a lot about life (while I've taught him the ways of TEKKEN ). But more importantly (for this page), Jet has taught me eons regarding the art of Drawing! That said, I'm proud to feature some of JET3000's amazing, hilarious, and inspiring artwork on The Fighters Generation. Please keep in mind everything Jet draws is completely from scratch (no tracing or copying whatsoever). I hope you can appreciate his unique art style (and sense of humor) as much as I have over the years. Also note that some art on this page he drew 10+ years ago.

In January 2013, Team TFG (Mr. Yagami, Jet3000 & JudoDarkFist) created a character for Capcom's "Embrace The Dark" Darkstalkers contest, with Jet as the lead artist on the project. Our entry placed 5th (out of 800)... not bad.

In June 2012, Jet was asked to create the official poster art for major fighting game tournament, CEO 2012. This ended up being his biggest art project to date, as he drew a ton of different characters. I had the privilege of inputting a few suggestions on which characters he should draw for the poster (which was quite fun, let me tell you). All of this was drawn on tablet.

Back in April 2009, Jet was asked to do the prologue and epilogue artwork for Tony V's short film, The Shadow's Ambition... This artwork was done solely on the computer with a pen tablet and mouse, a new medium for Jet, but his style definitely shows through! And by the way, he whipped these up in about 2 days flat.

Jet has also drawn yours truly a handful of times, and he does manage to capture my aura if I do say so myself. Jet also portrayed me as several characters that I'm known for using in games. xD Also shown are some drawings of friends of ours.

Now for some of Jet's comical stuff. The first series is properly entitled "Akuma in the morning".... Self explanatory and simply brilliant if you ask me. These were created in 2003.

Next up... The infamous "Shadowlootron." Yes, Shadaloo pretty much meets Transformers here. I swear, only Jet could think something like this up. Never can I look at the following series of pictures and not laugh my ass off. These were created in 2003.

Last but not least is a hilarious Dan comic that Jet created sometime in 2003 (while at work), and it never fails to crack me up, still to this day. I particularly love Vega's vivid facial expressions... yes, Vega (mask). These go in order - left to right & top to bottom. Enjoy!
