Reflective by Mayleth Reflective by Mayleth
She's a little sad and reflective here. Wanted to try a more emotive portrait.

I thought about her back story while drawing this. We usually see Chun-Li as the strong and confident young woman she is, but I imagine she has moments by herself where she feels sadness and grief. :<

What separates Chun-Li from many is the amount of resolve and spirit she has.

And I agree with Chun-Li's background. It seems a little more well developed then some of the other characters. ^^

Yes, I like how she's on a quest for vengeance but it's not your typical narrow path of vengeance; she also wants to enforce justice and ensure that innocents are kept safe. It helps she has made friends like Charlie, Guile, Cammy, etc along the way. :)

That's true. Since most revenge stories are more focused on blind vengeance (like Guile). But Chun-Li just wants Bison arrested, to prevent anymore harm to anyone else.

Yup although I think by now in the storyline (SSFIV and post) Guile is more concerned about Charlie himself. I think if Chun-Li had the opportunity though, she would kill Bison. Chances are he could just teleport out of prison and his record of destruction is really horrific and irredeemable.

I dunno if Chun-li would still consider killing Bison. But I'm sure if things got to out of hand, she would have no choice but have too.
But thinking about it, how can a prison hold him? lol
So Chun may have to change her options.

Like, all of a sudden, the instant I looked at her face, I saw an R. Mika mask on it. LOL

Very lovely. It looks so elegant, even the lines. You can feel her emotion so well in her eyes. I love the detail of her hair and eyes and the way you made her eyes look so soulful. Her expression is really great and expressive, too.
