Chun Li Movie Concept

I’ve been wanting to try my hand at some new fighting game character designs, so I first wanted to try out the first lady of video games Chun-Li. This was based off a concept sketch I did a while back, the idea was to lean more towards a mixture of Chun-Li’s video game costume and her job as a police officer.  It still leans towards the former more but a bit more toned down in its execution. Her original costume is a bit too over the top and just wouldn’t work in live-action film so I feel this is a nice compromise, and captures the spirit of her iconic costume significantly more than what the 1993 Street Fighter movie did.   The model is Crystal Liu (or Liu Yifei as she’s also known) who I think has the right look for Chun-Li. About 10-12 hours done in Affinity Photo. I’ve moved entirely over to Affinity Photo for all my work now and as far as I’m concerned it’s more than equal to Photoshop for a fraction of the price.

Here’s the original concept.  Plan to eventually do the Cammy concept also, and maybe a few others too. street_fighter_concepts.jpg

Ms Marvel Concept

I thought it would be kind of fun to see what Brie Larson would look like as Carol Danvers in her previous identity as Ms Marvel. A bit challenging trying to make the costume work but I think I got there in the end. I’m doing most of my work in Affinity Photo now as Photoshop has become too expensive to rent, so I recommend Affinity Photo as an alternative if people want a cheaper option.

So I used a cosplay image as my foundations, but gradually replaced each area of the figure adding in different limbs and body parts.  I call this ‘Frankensteining’.  The costume has different leather textures to keep it from looking too boring. The lightning stripe was probably the most challenging thing to design, it’s asymmetrical so was tricky to get looking right. Her sash I turned into more of a tied belt, and her domino mask I changed into some hi-tech goggles.  About 16 hours of work in total.
