style 14.1

31 03 2020

during the first months in 1995 working on the style development for MULAN I was researching everything I could get from china, books about traditional art, photography of the environment and graphic novels. I call them graphic novels, because they are so different from the comic strips we are used to in our western world. CHEN-YI CHENG, who was responsible for the character design, and myself went through chinatown in L.A. and found after a while treasures of artwork.
below you will find one of these graphic novels, it must have been created by a real master! I wish I knew his name and could see some more of his work. maybe there is one of my chinese viewers who can help.

I just randomly found your website from a Google image search, and wanted to say it was a very pleasant surprise. Keep up the good work!

These are incredible! I can see direct influence that these had in the stylization of the horses and armor in the movie.
