#asianheroesmonth...Sister Tse of Snakehead
May 29, 2017
Ok....now this is my final #asianheroesmonth drawing for sure. Before I could call it quits, I HAD to show some love to my boyz Brian Yang and Evan Leong. They're making a movie Snakehead that features a strong female lead. It's the story of the smuggling of illegal immigrants into Chinatown New York.
This drawing is of Sister Tse, the lead character in this film. If you didn't know, Evan was not only the guy that helped me with my Legend Kickstarter video, but he is also the director of the film Linsanity among others. Brian is one of my closest friends, and is the producer of both Linsanity and Snakehead.
My drawing does Evan's vision very little to no justice at all. Evan has an amazing eye for layout, composition and color. To say I'm excited to see the final product of his passion film project is to put it mildly.
I had a lot of fun drawing this, so I tried 2 different color options. Of course I colored these with Copic Markers, but I wanted to try and add some texture and color via photoshop to help add some mood. Here's my first failed attempt.
I learned a lot by doing this month long exercise. And I realized just how important Asian representation was to me after all this time. I thought after Secret Identities I had gotten it out of my system. But after seeing Ghost in The Shell and IronFist and The Great Wall...and the Oscars...I guess I still had something to say. Hope everyone was there with me and was able to pick up a little something something from all of this.
