Nothing stands in my way.
Lord Shen

· Simply, this just have to be done!
· So far, between all the animated films I watched, a character that I consider a total challenge for the animators… have you seen how many movements this dude can do?
· This drawing has chinese characters drawn by myself, if you know chinese writings and you find mistakes on it, please excuse me.
· With this drawings it's the second time I try color mixing, I think I learned more, also I first try drawing metals, I think I need to keep training
· I admit I had really tough times trying to draw his feet, plus metal on them, I drew lots of sketches before trying in this picture…
· Yeah, backgrounds are not my best…

Comment and critique please, I need to undertand if my work is having enough progress. Thanks.

awww so cute! I was just passing by and noticed some Chinese here. Something close to Nothing stands in my way would be "世上没有可抵挡我的障碍" literal meaning - there's no obstacle in the world can press me down.
方式 that's being used here does mean way, however it is more like the "method"
