Bengus (べんがす) is a Japanese freelance illustrator, character designer, and game creator. He is known for being one of Capcom's most famous main designers from the company's early days as well as one of the most influential artists in the art, comic and gaming communities. He has had several different pen names before his current one, some of which include "Mido Shiito" (水戸椎土), "CRMK", "Holy Homerun" and others. Since 2009, he has often gone by the pen name "Gouda Cheese".

HistoryEdit

Bengus grew up copying Leiji Matsumoto and Akira Toriyama's illustrations as a hobby and found that he had a passion for art. He joined Capcom in 1992 and used paints and markers early on. He describes his style as somewhat counterproductive as he usually conceives, sketches, and colors an illustration in one shot. Back when he used paper media, he would occasionally touch up artwork with a few polishing details. He now uses Photoshop and mainly draws with a tablet. He left the company in 2006 and mainly works as a freelancer, though he has done a promotional images for Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

After several years, Bengus returned to work on a Capcom fighting game, being one of the key artwork artists for Street Fighter V.

TriviaEdit

  • For some reason, "Naoto Kuroshima" is written as, and generally believed to be, his real name on some online sites, but this has never been officialy confirmed by Bengus himself, who only uses a pseudonym on his social media profiles.
  • His favorite Street Fighter character is Sakura. He comments on how he's able to express himself freely in his art compared to the high expectations that come with drawing Ryu or Chun-Li. [1]
