Junjie: Sly As A Fox by DolphinMoana Junjie: Sly As A Fox by DolphinMoana
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

That he is. :giggle: Shifu needs a fuzzy rival.

Yeah, he is.
You know? If Shifu were on a fighting game, one of his palettes should be Junjie's color scheme.

Well, on the multiplayer mode of the film game, he does get different colored outfits based on the player. :lol:

So, it's posible to make him look like Junjie?
