First of all I would like to dedicate this drawing to everyone who is a fan of Martial Arts and especially Bruce Lee..
I finally end the year with a drawing that I consider long overdue..
I had plans to draw Bruce 2 years ago, but found it difficult to find a ref pic that not only hasn't been drawn much, but one that is of decent size to work from..
Last week I found that pic, and decided now it's time..
The ref image is a off the set shot from his uncompleted movie "Game of Death"..
Isn't it strange that both Bruce and Brandon died without completing their final movies, but involving death either in the title or in the movie..
I have always enjoyed watching the Bruce Lee movies, and of Martial Art movies in general, and even though I grew up with new Idols like Ti Lung, Donnie Yen, Philip Ko, Bruce Liang, etc.. My fave was always Bruce Lee
Bruce Lee was regarded as the most influential martial artist of the twentieth century, he has captured the hearts of millions with his Martial Art teachings (Jeet Kune Do), and through his Movies.
What can one say about the man that hasn't already been said, he is regarded as the King of Kung Fu, a total bad A$$ fighter with a defined physique , a Legend, a Icon and a true Idol of mine, someone that succeeded in bringing the Chinese culture to the west..
Of course this description wouldn't be complete without a link to one of his fights
Okay I regard this fight --> [link]
as probably the finest fight ever captured on camera.
It's the cavern fight scene from the movie "Enter the Dragon"
Bruce shows intensity, speed and power and also the fact that he kicks Jackie's butt in it (1.20 on the link above)..
I end with one of Bruce's famous quotes
"Be formless... shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle; it becomes the bottle. You put it into a teapot; it becomes the teapot. Water can flow, and it can crash. Be water, my friend..."
May Bruce Lee (27 November 1940 20 July 1973) and Brandon Lee (February 1, 1965 March 31, 1993) RIP
