Title: News Flash: Giant Panda Destroys Tokyo
Name: Simon Bull
Country: Japan

Lord Panda (as he is known to locals) laid waste to a large section of Japan's Saitama Prefecture in an unprovoked fit of wanton destruction. Thousands have been displaced from homes as Lord Panda's wake grows (he has moved over four kilometers since his initial outburst), and the Japanese Self-Defense Force (SDF) has been mobilized to protect denizens against the gargantuan threat.

painter elements 2 is a fun game. ^-^ anyone want to give me a free, real copy of painter? in english -- this one came with my intuos 3 and it's all in japanese that i can't read.

that last part was a joke.

filesize: 54 meg

Heh. One of the most awesome pics I've seen in a long time! Only little thing is that the aircrafts are a bit redundant. Colors, rendering, detailing, concept - all is top notch.

Great piece. The foreground with the wires is really nice. Overall, the composition is fantastic. The jets are barely noticeable, but a nice touch. I would like to see a litte more definition in the panda though. Feels kinda flat.

On a different note, what do you do in Japan? Please tell me you went to see Howl's Moving Castle.

Thanks peoples!

I think the panda looks flat because of all the smoke in the
forground, I think its washed him out a little...gonna have to fix that, thanks!!

And yeah I saw Howl, it was one of the most beautiful movies that
I have ever seen...although I liked the story from the
book better...but then again the animation and backgrounds were
And in japan I teach English...although I really really want to change Jobs!!! lol
Anyway thanks for the comments

The part that none of you guys know about is that he actually kidnapped a real panda from the Ueno zoo for this image. He fed it all the meat the fridge (half of which was mine), as well as two small ferns and a lit cigarette.

The destruction what followed was horrific beyond description... But as his roommate there's nothing I can do but rebuild...

... or shave him in his sleep.

I kind of like the planes, although the army here would take about a week to get themselves mobilized in real life.

Looks fantastic Cyb. I love the look on Lord Pandas face. Classic Japanesse Monstrosity. Devestating and cute. And I like the subtly of the planes, adds the human element into it, even though you can't see them, you know they're there.

Keep it up. I wanna see more.
