Junjie: Sly As A Fox by FaithFirefly Junjie: Sly As A Fox by FaithFirefly
As painful as they guy was to color, he was a blast to draw. :lol: And how handy that the markings on his face should mimic the classic elliptical guidelines of drawing character heads.

So you've heard me talk about this guy already in my journal, but I'm going to say more. :lol: He's just a really fun addition to the KFP World, and I've come to love him. He has a doggone amazing design, and he seems strongly based on the fox character Dreamworks cut out of Kung Fu Panda 2 for slight resemblance to Shifu.

I do have to give the show credit that Junjie doesn't ramble on about how Shifu did him wrong and how much he loooooathes him. In fact, you never hear him say he hates Shifu (not to mention the tapestry, the topiary, the statue, the teapot...), it's Shifu himself to decides to briefly taunt him with the fact that Oogway didn't choose him to lead the Jade Palace. But it becomes clear pretty early on that Junjie has an agenda against the old red panda - in the middle of apparently some very formal sparring, he breaks the rhythm by dealing Shifu a hard kick to the chest (lower-right pic). Why? 'Cause he jolly well FELT like it. :unimpressed: But the great thing is that Shifu retorts with his own smooth, er...violence.

Shifu: It's all right, I was just a little slow. *TACKLE*

And then he flips the fox punk in a wrist hold......LIKE A BOSS. :D

So yeah, Junjie's left more of an impression for me more than any of LOA's villains thus far. One, he's another little guy for Shifu to brawl with, I don't know why that adds points. :lol: Two, he's a trickster - he plays with his victim's mind and emotions, something I haven't really seen much of in other villains of the show. It would've been interesting in "Ghost of Oogway" if he had used his deceitful act to confront Shifu directly and really strike a blow to his emotions, maybe by confirming Shifu's fear that he wasn't everything he could've been for his master. :o And three, a cuddly, old good guy needs a cuddly, old rival. :lol: With ears to rival his own.

I have a feeling Junjie will show up again in "Father Crime" for whatever ultimatum reasons. :D I hope so.

Love the poses and expressions here very in-character of Junjie! He's one of my favorite violans on the show, really. You did an overall great job on these.

Thanks! :aww: To me, Legends of Awesomeness is seriously hit and miss. ^^; One episode will actually be pretty well done, and the next will be horrid. :lol: But I've been relatively impressed by the episodes with Junjie in it, especially Ghost of Oogway. Kung Fu Daycare was pretty funny - I'm not a Tigress fan, but her fail as a babysitter in that episode was a good laugh. XD

He kinda sounds like he's hiccuping and coughing. :laughing: That makes it a dork laugh.

Junjie totally had no true respect for Oogway in Ghost of Oogway as he used Oogway's image to take over the Jade Palace. Now I would see this as a disrespect to the dead, even more so his master.

Oogway will probably come back and haunt Junjie in Chor Gom for awhile by showing a display of dominance a galopagos tortoise would with his neck raised high!

He even did it in Kung Fu Panda while Shifu was saying "I know you said that already."

And how ironic it is that my favourite animal in the whole world should be an enemy of my favourite KFP character in the whole world. XD.

When I was watching the Sight For Sore Eyes episode, my impressions were this:

Me: OMG A FOX! SQUEE!
Me: Oh noes! Shifu and Jun Jie are fighting!!! Who do I go for???!!!
Me: GRR JUN JIE LOCKED SHIFU UP. DIE U STUPID FOX!!!

ahahaha. But the funny thing is that I just can't stay mad at the little Jun Jie. Awesome as villain, he is! Though if Nick wanted to stay closer to Chinese mythology, they would have added a female, seductive fox character - a huli jing. :o ohwell. I much prefer Jun Jie XD with his annoying, sophisticated ways :lol:

Thank u so much for this pic. U made my day. :lol:

I rly hope to see more of that fox ;P

And thanks for pointing out that in fact Jun Jie never DID say he hates Shifu. Thats quite unlike ur average everyday villain. And when they do that, it can get anoying at times, :XD:

Your Shifu-buddy, Jess :lol:

Oddly enough, back when the first movie came out, I had made up a fox rival for Shifu, but she was female and was a bit bigger than Shifu. :lol: Unfortunately, she never saw the light of day, but I still have a sketch of her in my sketchbook.

OMIGOSH I LOVE JUNJIE SO MUCH and you TOTALLY did him justice! I love you for drawing him! :hug:

I totally agree, his character design pretty much outclasses the entire show. He's almost too good for the show, you know? It's a pity the movie scripters didn't think of him. I could definitely see him as a main villain the likes of Shen and Tai Lung, can't you?

:iconfaithfirefly:
FaithFirefly Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2011  Professional Filmographer
:lol: Well, if we thought Shen would have a hard time living up to Tai Lung, we can only imagine how a little fox can really size up to to BOTH of those guys now. ^^; It'd be tough work. But I hope Junjie stays around for a long while. :D

I was also pleasantly suprised to see that character design pop up as well, that's a hint to me that at least someone cares about this show. I think Mr. Marlet would be happy to see that.

I love his color scheme and his bushy little eyebrows. I'd like to see more episodes with him, I'm still not sure if I like him or not. I think his motives are clear live you said. And his and Shifu's little rivalry is entertaining. I really liked Master Chao for some reason.

Are these referenced in anyway? They're really fluid and crisp. I like the bottom left quite a bit.

:iconfaithfirefly:
FaithFirefly Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2011  Professional Filmographer
Boy, I should hope so. :lol: Why let a great design go by the wayside?

I hope to see him in the future too. :D Seeing as how we have Shifu's father in a future episode and he's a con artist, I have a feeling Junjie will be back to use him against Shifu somehow.

Thanks! :) And yeah, they're all referenced from "Sight For Sore Eyes". I think the bottom-left is my fave too. :D

I have to confess that this is one of my few favorite characters on Legends of Awesomeness. I do like that they used the original concept design for foxes when they designed him. I can't put my finger on why, but I kind of have a crush on Junjie. What is it about him that keeps me coming back? His charm, good looks, silver tongue? If only I were shallow. It seems like Junjie has something deeper going on than what we've already seen of him, and maybe that mysterious something else is what attracts me to him. Either way, you sure did a good job of recreating this wily little fox.

FaithFirefly Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2011  Professional Filmographer
I'd say there is something deeper indeed. :D :) It'd be interesting to further explore his relationship with Oogway and what went down when Shifu was chosen as Oogway's heir. Junjie seemed rather respectful and almost afraid when he thought Oogway had come, and looked so happy when Oogway complimented his passion. :lol:
