This page wouldn't be possible without Jet Li and "Forbidden Kingdom". If only he wouldn't move so damn fast, Joolita had problems with pausing the video at right moments to reference the pose.
Next week will mark the end of chapter one, we are very excited.

If you want to see how the page was created please follow our tumblr.

There's a great feeling of motion on this page :O Impressive! Now's the time for a victory dance!

Jet Li is a kung fu actor, right? To my mind that looks exactly like a movement called hasteira in capoeira :D but I'm biased.

@Legerdimain: Yup, Jet Li does kung-fu. My knowledge of martial arts is very limited, so i felt the need to find an actual move that would fit the needs of this scene. (Poor Munen had to look for visual materials to help me draw it) You do capoeira? It's one of the most fancy-looking martial arts, or do i get it wrong? Do you know any videos i could watch to get a feel of this style? (it might be suitable for some of the scenes i have in mind, so i'll be really grateful for any help).

@joolita I've been doing capoeira for 1,5 years now and while I'm not great at the acrobatics, I can kick like nobody's business xD

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6H0D8VaIli0 - a more fast paced roda with some crazy jump kicks

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8xxgFpK-NM - slow, probably choreographed, game. This should be good for drawing reference :)

Hopefully this is of some use to you :D
