2015-Chunli'92 by Vandrell 2015-Chunli'92 by Vandrell
Rejected Illustration done for the book Tribute to Capcom Udon. However, the truth is I'm happy with the result, because I have never been satisfied when I painted her, and in this illustration, in my opinion, I think I nailed quite what I had in mind. Cool days when I played street fighter 2 in my super nintendo on 1992. Want to know more? take a look at my new facebook page ( and don't miss to like it xD) www.facebook.com/ArtofVandrell…

El dibujo está genial y sobretodo me gusta el ángulo de la prespectiva. Imagino que si exite algún motivo para rechazar una ilustración así es posiblemente porque la cara recuerda demasiado a la modelo/actriz que supongo que tomaste como referencia, si no me equivoco Rila Fukushima. Si no la has cogido de referencia te ha salido ella clavada XD

La verdad es que no había caído en ese hecho, lo del parecido con la actriz, que por otra parte sí, fue uno de mis referentes xD. En fin supongo que se me fue la mano al querer hacer una escena de este estilo y una especie de chun-li definitiva tal como me la imaginaba, de corte tan realista. Si hubiera tirado por un estilo mas cartoon quizás otro gallo cantaría. Aun así, estoy contento en como me quedo, sobretodo con el maratón que me pegue al hacerla. Muchas gracias por el comment, veo que eres un crack del retrato :D. Ahora entiendo lo rápido que has sacado referencias. A seguir dandole caña!

De nada (con un poco de retraso XD) y gracias también por el cumplido, ahora tengo ésto del dibujo un poco abandonado, esperando poder retomar algún día algunas cosas que tengo por ahí a medias... Te entiendo cuando dices que te pegaste un buen maratón, jejeje, espero que no te falten fuerzas como a mí y continues a gran nivel como hasta ahora ;)

Oh man this is like the PERFECT STYLE. I love everything about it. I never say this, but damn, HOW DID THIS GET REJECTED.

Thanks for your enthusiastic comment. About the rejecting, maybe the perspective, maybe the some much realistic style, I really don't know, but I'm not worried about. As I said in the main comment, I'm happy with this chun-li :D. Thanks again! Oh and if you have facebook and want to see more about my work process, like line arts, or wips, take a look at my facebook page, I update it more often than my deviant.

I feel that. Art directors can make decisions based more on taste, art is all subjective and whatnot. I wouldn't be totally bummed by the rejection either, because this is a stellar piece. Honestly, like the best Chun Li artwork I've seen. It's so fun yet realistic, I almost get a bit of a Kim Jung Gi vibe as well.

And will do! It's much easier to update on Facebook. I think I post more art there than here, myself. >_<

Wow thanks for the feature :D This is a gift, for things like this, it's great do a little effort in my retro gaming fanarts, most of them made for art's sake.

*high 5* That Chun Li fan art really deserved a bit more attention. That they did not choose it for the Tribute Book is a shame.

Btw, I am organizing a SoulEdge/Calibur Tribute for its 20th Anniversary in Januar 2016. Online only as usual but a lot great artists are on board already and there will be some crazy illustrations like one with all of Voldo's different costumes, and you know he had a lot. If you have the time in the next 6 months for a SoulCalibur fan art, consider yourself very welcome.

Maybe the forced perspective and the realistic style  in some way don't played in my favor. In any case I'm happy with the results. Thanks for your nice words ^^

Shame it got rejected. But I can sort of see why with the odd angle her arm seems to be at and the slightly butchered perspective.
But those are hard things to obtain in one single piece when trying to show it off against so many other artists to be selected. I mean it still looks very good in terms of render and the rest of the dynamics. Chun Li seems to be our leading lady in testing out perspective and technique in rendering. And this is still good to me regardless of its rejection.
