I know I said that Chun-Li isn’t my favorite fighting video game character, but I felt like giving her another go. This fan art is more of the Street Fighter Alpha style Chun-Li, which I do like. I’m not sure if I necessarily like her Alpha costume more than her original costume, but it’s always neat to see some change and evolution.
I don’t have too many bad things to say about this drawing. Her face ended up looking a bit like Scarlett Johansson’s (stare at her nose and lips long enough and you should see it), though that wasn’t planned out in advance. Just a happy accident. I feel like her eyes ended up looking a little weird, but it seems like a pretty minor issue, all things considered.
The thinner line art ended up serving the drawing fairly well again. I do like using bolder lines too, but I guess it all depends on what you’re going for. For any character drawings with finer details, it’s often good to go a little thinner, and certainly there are some finer details with Chun-Li’s hair.
I hope you enjoyed this fan art. Let me know what you thought in the comments section below, and don’t be too shy about making requests!
