Wong Fei Hung
I wanted to honor the great and beloved hero of China, Wong Fei Hung. His legacy has impacted China in such a way that there is a museum dedicated to him in Foshang, China. He's been portrayed in many movies, most famously "Drunken Master," where he's played by a young Jackie Chan.
I started by modeling and animating the character in simple clothing. I felt the look wasn’t enough to grab the attention of viewers. The image needed to look more mystical and majestic, like he was the prince of a mystic army. I took inspiration from Hong Kong cinema and the aesthetic of their movie posters to create the current look he has now.
