For this Free Pic Friday, another of Ryuji Higurashi’s fan art submissions from before he was Capcom, as appeared in CAP! magazine #5 in late 1997. His bunny-eared Lilly design was recently voted 5th place by fans in the Legends 3 New Heroine Contest!
As noted on the side by the image, Capcom was really taking notice of him by that time. “This one got rave reviews by everyone in the design room! What an excellent grasp on the details!” Within a year or so of this piece’s publication, he became an official Capcom artist. From fan art to famous!

Perhaps that explains the helmet Roll’s holding in one bit on BnC art. 🙂
Hey RADical! Battle and Chase had come out earlier that year, so this picture is based on the other one.
A cleaner version with no overlay could have made for a great wallpaper!
Why does Roll have so many outfits? Most of them went unused…
I guess it’s to give her layers.
