Thanks.

Text from right to left:
Nothing stands in my way.
Lord Shen


Notes:
· 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"

I forgot if I commented on this or not, but I don't think I did so here ya go.
~~~

I loved the first Kung Fu Panda (I love Jack Black) and I can simply not wait for the 2nd one to come out on DVD ( Theatres? Going to a movie that is overly loud in an auditorium filled with stinky, young, loud children in a freezing condition in uncomfortable seats? No thanks c: )

I am also a major bird-fan, so anything having to do with birds I am instantly in love with. You've capture the peacock's tails perfectly, but the thing I love most about this picture is DEM FEETS. OH MY GOD. I LOVE THOSE FEET. BIRD FEET BLADES METAL. The shine really adds to them and the movement always leads me downward to look at them and they are so beautiful. Bird feet are a challenge but you did amazing. <3<3<3

Also screw backgrounds, I hate backgrounds too. I'm not good at them so rarely.. actually I never put backgrounds in LOL. Great picture!

When I get to the cinema, I usually do a lot of evaluations, in example; how the movie flows, perhaps mistakes in the movies, how do the public react to the different scenes in the movie, how they experience it, and some times how the theater shows the movie (if the movie is well centered in the screen projection, sound and that sort of things). Maybe, I go there from 1 to 9 times to see the same movie, depending of how much I love it. When I see a movie that I really like I forget of everyone in the audience and my popcorn and I just watch the film. (That's when I go to movies more than once)

I'm fan of reptiles, dinos, cats, and some other creatures, but, not so much birds, but… oh yes… this guy is a big exception, it's all the group of facts; he's got awesome clothing, some serious flamberge/kris-like swords, mind-blowing weaponry that wears on his feet (adding that they gave a short close-up to them), he can do all those fantastic moves, all his body is a lethal weapon (I loved the part when he fights against masters Croc and Ox), but seriously I've never been so focused on draw feet before. That you noticed it is a great compliment to me, Thank you very much for that.

Wow, pretty awesome comment indeed. Thanks again.!

PSI can't wait for the bluray…

I love being at the movies when there is no one else there, but in order for me to really get into a movie and enjoy it to its fullest I need to have absolutely no distractions, i.e., cell phones, noises, all that. It just totally ruins the experience for me. (and the theatre here just isn't very good.)

I love all of those things, but birds especially. I just got to see the movie yesterday and he was an excellent villain, the way he moved was beautiful. I must say once again that you captured the feet beautifully, and now that I have seen the movie I can say that you captured the character just as well.

Well you have an awesome picture, I could only give it a worthy comment! You're welcome. c:

You know what? I just happen to see your videos on how to make this. Did your hair turn gray or something? I think my hair would've. I just don't know how someone can put tons of detail (not to mention research) in a fanart. Seriously, you deserve to get more views or something or at least should've been featured.

So much free time you have, yet so much dedication... and patience :nod:. I wish I had more patience, I couldn't finish watching even 1 of your videos (They're soo... long). Though, I think your videos would be very well appreciated if you made a 10 minute video or perhaps a two part video of 10 minutes each and upload it to youtube. I usually have a hard time with other video formats since they just buffer even if you've completed downloading a part of a video.
