Hwang Jang Lee – “Thunder Kicks of the Silver Fox” [Art]
This is an original hand-drawn piece of art that I did as a tribute to master kicker, martial arts actor extraordinaire Hwang Jang-Lee (aka. Wong Ching-Lee, Huang Cheng-Li, Huong Cheng-Li, Wong Ching-Lei, Wang Chang-Li, Wong Cheng-Lee, Wang Cheng-Li, Wang Jang-Li , Wang Jang-Lee ). Hwang has played an amazing assortment of unforgettable villains (and occasionally heroes) throughout the kung fu films of the ‘70s and ‘80s. He dazzled us in the genre classics DRUNKEN MASTER, HITMAN IN THE HAND OF BUDDHA, SNAKE IN THE EAGLE’S SHADOW, INVINCIBLE ARMOR, and many more. It doesn’t matter which name you best know him by: “Thunderleg”, “Rubber Legs”, “Ghost Hand Lo Hsin”, “Kam, Invincible Golden Rings”, the wizard that fought using a cannonball as a weapon at the end of NINJA IN THE DRAGON’S DEN, or as the “Silver Fox” himself! If you’ve EVER seen him in a movie… he was definitely blowing your mind with his jaw-dropping (and jaw-smashing) legwork as he kicked the stuffing out of whomever he was facing.
The original art was accomplished with a Bamboo Wacom tablet. I only used a few select tools- various paintbrushes, smudge tool, and a little airbrushing in April, 2011. This amazing tool (which is new to me) has allowed me to draw, correct, erase, redraw et. without limit. That means that I was able to keep at every detail until I was satisfied without worrying about destroying the paper or canvas! Absolutely freeing! I put in about a hundred and thirty hours on this piece, and so far it’s the piece of art that I am happiest with of everything I’ve ever created.
This artwork has been professionally reproduced on acid and lignin-free, glossy 12 pt. light card-stock paper for all 11×17″ prints, and on high-quality, semi-gloss poster paper for 24×36″ poster prints.
