Legend of Zhen Shu - episode 1


What do you get when you combine one martial arts movie and one cool fall/winter 2011/12 fashion show which undoubtedly borrowed ideas both for the clothes and the show itself from the same movie? Well, this, "Legend of Zhen Shu"! Planned to be released in an episodic manner, the picture story chronicles the antics of a self-proclaimed crime-fighter kind of character. Here we are introduced to the black-clad heroine, fashioned after one of the stars of the said fashion show, and to a mysterious character, fashioned after one of the stars of the said movie.

For those wondering the blocky "subtitles"; it's entirely intentional as I really wanted to get the heartily dodgy feel of a VHS copy of some Hong Kong action flick. For same artistic reasons I omitted the usual "" tag from the black borders so If you feel a need to distribute these pictures somewhere for whatever reason, please do mention the source of their origin. Thank you.

...and one more thing; I love to draw rain, the flow of it, and how it blurs and interacts with contours and surfaces!

[edit]Replaced the poster with a version with hand-written names and the title.
