100 theme challenge #62 - "Light & Dark"
My entry for
's current contest.
Heeeey, haven't done one'a these in a while.
But I've had it in my mind since I first saw Kung Fu Panda 2. I went back and watched the first one again, and it's really cool to see how Shifu grows between movies.
You certainly get an Oogway vibe from him now - not to mention I love the way he carries himself in the sequel. Most of the time through the first KFP, he was rather hunched over and always had his arms behind his back. In this one, he holds his head up and has a rather regal air about him, even in the way he holds his hands. Even if we didn't get to see much of him, it was really neat to see the small ways in which he is becoming Oogway.
And you, know not to mention that he......*SPOILERS*
SOMEHOW TREKKED ACROSS THE COUNTRY BY HIMSELF JUST TO HELP HIS STUDENTS. O____O That's a mighty journey for a little old man!!*END SPOILERS*
Anyhoo, I thought this also fit well into my 100 theme contest.
And I hope I didn't make old Shifu's despondency too obvious with the rain.
I used the film's color theory for this - blue for cold and negativity, and green for peace and wisdom.
