Sumthin special for you guys this time!
Did you ever wonder why John Crawley quit the U.S. Marines after AoF1?
Here's a take for you in the shape of a great rival fight!
Shortly after the events of the 1st Art of Fighting, Sergeant Guile, official U.S. Air Force martial arts champ, faced Crawley, a Marine close combat Instructor on the deck of an aircraft carrier (the best place for Air Force and Marine to meet up), after the latter had mouthed up a lil too much...
From the greatness of the haircut to the strength of their (energy) balls, notwithstanding almost 20 kgs (about 40-45 pounds) difference in weight, we can safely assume Guile beat the crap out the coolest-military-character wannabe contender!
Though as we can see the fight happened at first light, there were a few witnesses and they didn't take Crawley's loss lightly.
Deemed unworthy of his instructor's position (also maybe cause the guy's a d..), he was forced to quit..
Which is why, all shameful that he was, he didn't want to answer Ryo, and was very pissed by the question, when asked (in AoF2) if he chose private life since their last encounter!
Design note: did John's costume with a mix of his AoF1 and AoF2 outfits while recreating the BG from John's AoF1 stage.
Choregraphy side note: And no... (despite some of youz might think!) it isn't a farting contest lol... merely the very moment before John lost all hope of sitting again within the next 3 weeks... and fanart can be fun sometimes too!
