Kinu Nishimura is one of the most accomplished artists to have ever worked in video games. She started out at Capcom in 1991, and in the two decades to follow worked on everything from Street Fighter II to Darkstalkers.

It’s been over 25 years since then, and while she’s no longer a full-time employee, she’s helped out on titles as recent as Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Nishimura’s first job at Capcom was on the brawler King of Dragons, and afterwards she contributed either promotional art or character design work for classics like Rival Schools, Street Fighter III and Capcom vs. SNK.

[To see the larger pics in all their glory (or so you can save them as wallpaper), right-click on the "expand" icon on the main image above and select "open in new tab".]

As great advice as this is, I much prefer viewing pictures the way Kotaku used to show them; ie. all on same page simultaneously. Clicking pictures one by one is a) taxing b) time consuming and c) crops pictures; which requires d) a further click to expand. None of these problems in the original viewing style!

The original style can be viewed by deleting the "/gallery/1" part in the html address. But is there an option to set this viewing style to default?
