Chun-Li from the Street Fighter series, referenced from her Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 appearance. Took a shorter amount of time than my usual pieces as I was working at full steam thinking my capturing program was recording properly... it wasn't ^^ The recording will have to wait for the next picture. PS CS6 in about 4 hours.
That's the translation of Chun Li's name. I chose to draw her again as my first pic for 2013, and also my first properly rendered (to my current abilities anyway) drawing since October last year, because she's actually one of the harder characters to draw for me.
The composition was actually inspired by another Chun drawing by Nishimura that I saw recently, and I thought it was quite interesting so I had a go in my style with Chun in one of her alt costumes
