This was done in my rotoscoping class. The rotoscoped images are from Jet Li's last martial arts movie:
Huo Yuan Jia, a.k.a. Fearless
Honestly speaking I didn't like tracing frame by frame over unclear still image that are hard to make clear off but I do enjoy drawing the motion lines of the hand, sword, kick, triple chained staff, the slashing motion of the katana hitting the staff.
The motion lines were more enjoyable to draw than tracing. (I know its contradicting)
Planning to model him for my graduate porfolio. The one on top is my sketch and the one below is a clean up version of the sketch(I wouldn't consider this one inking yet). I should learn how to ink like the comic artist we know out there.
Artist like, Alvin Lee, Adam Hughs, Tetsuya Nomura, Ma Wing Seng.
The character, Wu Jing Ren is wearing a Dragon Armor that he made by himself to fight a war that would ultimately decide the fate of world. In this story, a Dragon Armor can only be allowed to be worn by the emperor himself and his militia elites and guards. Jing Ren was called to the palace to fight for the emperor, as he was the last of the best elites in the country.
