quote: There's at least a good amount of evidance there that he is, just no hard evidance where SNK plainly states her character designers. Angel's move names are based on songs from the band Soulflower Union, which Syleos is apparently a fan of and he links to their web site at his.
I remember reading somewhere that he designed Angel originally. Can anybody confirm this? Is he the artist refered in Angel's profile at the KOF anniversary site?
She does look like his style of character, specially after looking at the Ibara designs.
Styleos' drawing style makes it seem to me that he'd be the artist of Angel. I believe Styleos liked American wrestling, Angel has dialogue mimicked from WWF (or WWE is the new name) wrestler Rock (& maybe the corporate/people's elbo move? I read in something about some Rock move but I didn't play her too much)...and she does look a bit like one of their starring bimbos too, at least in that picture where she's making horns as I believe Professor points out on his site. Styleos seems to like Mexico, Angel is from Mexico.
Also he would have designed K', Maxima, and Lin's 3 buddies.
"You can see his preferences in almost every aspect of her."
We don't know but I'd say he's the artist mentioned. Of cource it might be possible they could be talking about someone else who designs sprite moves & graphics, while he would just design primary design-graphics.
