88 - The Dazhong Mountains by FaithFirefly 88 - The Dazhong Mountains by FaithFirefly
100 Theme Challenge #88 - "Journey"

More background practice!! So this is your first pictorial view ever of a scene from my Kung Fu Panda sequel. This is a scene where - once their journey takes them beyond the safety of the Thread of Hope - Po, Shifu, and the Furious Five have to cross the perilous territory of the Dazhong Mountains. This is an actual "shot" from the story. Yes, the rest of the Five are with them, I just didn't have the current patience to draw them.

Heh-heh, look at poor Po, somebody help the guy!! :ohnoes:

Although I didn't follow it exactly, I got a boost in doing the background with help of a wonderful tutorial I found by :iconnaomi-shikaru: Link to it here: [link]

If I remember correctly from reading the story at age 12, Shifu isn't wearing that outfit.

Poor Po, Pandas' are usually very good climbers...at least when they're babies :lol: But I can see Tigress is having a hard time too, luckily Shifu is there ^^

All three animals here are pretty good climbers, actually, including tigers (not competely sure about South China Tigers, though). I didn't know pandas were especially good climbers as babies, though I know they're certainly climbers as is. But that's perfect, since we get to see infant Po later on in "Origins" and he has a thing with climbing. :lol:

Tigers are really great climbers! (0)__(0) When you consider how heavy and long their body is, its amazing as how they can climb up a tree.

Red Pandas are one of the little specilists when it comes to climbing trees :P

Those big cats have more muscle than I thought at first. It's not until you see one up close that you realize just how much they have. :o I wouldn't put it beyond them to hoist their own weight up with those muscles and claws!

Yep! :D Did you notice that they made Shifu rather animalistic in his movements when he climbed the pillars during his fight with Tai Lung? :love:

Hmm, for some reason, only one little thought enters my head.
Tigress: Po! Stop staring at my butt!
Po: *looks down* It's better than the other view.
Tigress: What was that?!
Po: :blush: Nothing.
