This drawing bothered me the first time I saw it and I decided to do a redraw. Of course it had to be a hard pose. I couldn’t pick an easy one where she was sitting down..
First I tried to do her pose, to the best of my ability. I am not an athlete by any means and I had…
You know, until you said it here, I had no idea she was taking her hair scrunchie thing off. That at least explains what’s going on. I really like your redraw and what you were able to do with it, even though, as you said, another pose likely would have conveyed the action better.

Chun Li is in the process of using her newly learned 2 dimensional technique to dodge attacks.
