Fei-Long is Capcom’s tribute to the Jeet Kune Do movie legend Bruce Lee, the basis for his design. Not only do the two look alike and come from the same city, Fei-Long also lets out similar battle cries to Lee, and is just as furious and fast. Also, Fei Long (飛龍) is Mandarin for “flying dragon”, as well as a type of kick. Fei Long is very serious most of the time. He is also shown to be calm at times. The best example of this is in his rival fight against Abel, where he is shown to be in a normal mood at first but all of a sudden loses his temper just as the Frenchman asks him for a fight 2 times. There are also times when Fei Long is shown to be a little cocky.
Here is a final drawing of Fei Long.

Below are step by step images how to draw Fei Long. Step one and two, I am just trying to sketch out the structure of the overall shape of the his head. At this point, do not worry so much about little detail, try to get the most accurate big shape of the subject you are drawing first. Step three, I already have the foundation sketch, then I can just add in eyes, nose, mouth, and hair base on the construction line you already have. There are vertical line and horizontal lines to establish the facial structure as instruct on the video tutorial. Step four, Now we begin to see Fei Long’s face coming along. At this point, try to get his facial structure as accurate as it can be. Drawing correctly or accurately is better than getting more lines or add in detail to cover up the mistake or the unsure area, accuracy first then detail.
