Yes, I remember that the same picture was on the game cartridge too if I recall right. I also had the strategy guide too and it had alot of the same artwork. In many ways I like those pictures better than the 3d computer generated ones that are around today. There is alot to be said for the time and skill that went into those paintings.

There was a time when ace posted a much worse picture as an "optical illusion" if anyone remember, no one minded that. Plus you see much worse stuff in PG-13 movies these days. You have to be 13 to be on this board BTW (part of the agreement that no one reads)...

I have a big original poster from this cover, on which you can see the 3 thrashing opponents in a larger shape, so I must admit, that Chun Li has a little too much muscles on this cover,especially to see this on her both powerful legs. .She was a young Chinese girl at her first appearance in 1992, it seems the american artist didn't know exactly, how must to draw such an asian woman, perhaps he thought he must draw Chun Li in this tough style, to show that she can keep up with her male counterparts, but this style let she appears herself too masculine, that is not very realistic, she must be much more female.

What you are thinking about it?

Here is a scan from the poster, which is showing the painting from this cover. I must take it down from the wall to make a scan. The poster was hanging there for about 10 years already.
