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.
