Bagua Master: Art of Balance by Seibaru Bagua Master: Art of Balance by Seibaru
Hey there you all! More vector work for you!

This piece is representing a master of bagua. Bagua for those who don't know, is a form of martial arts based upon the theory of balance that not only applies to the way you fight and train, but also the way you live. I did this vector art for my uncle, because he recently became a Grandmaster of this art. It's sooo cool to have such an uncle. ^^ Either way I hope you like the art!

A GRANDMASTER?!?!?! That's awsome! I gotta say I envy you on this. How long did it take him to become that?

wow.. it'a amazing how those lines.. seem to help portray the image. It's cool to see a pose from one of the internal arts, but it's way cooler seeing it in movement... as far as critique.. I can't think of any for this piece. The posture seems to express that the figure has great control over himself. I can only sujjest an idea you may want to incorperate into any future pieces like this... wich is showing the dantien and the focus/balance of the chakra in the martial artists body.. just something i think might be cool. nice job.. + fav!

I think your art in general already have a very powerful line quality, very musculine, you should develop on the idea of vector art and expand on your powerful lines, and shapes. You can do very well with city scape, you should make that even stronger because you already have strength in it.

Keep going. Keep up working and don't you stop.

This is very nice. I like the simplicity (only using blue and white for contrast) and the complexity (the pose) that this picture exhibits.

Sincere congratulations to your uncle. Though I practice some martial arts, I have no idea how hard it must be to become a grandmaster.

I have seen some Baguazhang forms and I really like the various stances and motions. The fluidity that is exhibited throughout as one progresses from motion to motoin is breathtaking to watch. It's like watching water flowing before your eyes.

Kevin, your vector art is always soooo good. The way you utilize pure shades is very proffesional. Doesn't it just look like something you'd see in the proffesional world? And Bagua is sooo awesome X_X. AWESOME JOB :D
