Martial Arts - Taekwondo 2 by jmdesantis Martial Arts - Taekwondo 2 by jmdesantis
One of a series of martial arts watercolour paintings I did some years ago for an interview with the depicted martial artist (left). Perhaps no longer amongst my best work, but it's worth adding here for a little bit of diversity of subject matter and style. There were ten images altogether, but I've only submitted two here.

Sincerely,

Well, I'm sure your not all that bad. Everyone has their talents in the martial arts (my brother, for one, is nearly a natural and expert at spinning kicks, something, I must admit, requires a lot more practice on my part); perhaps you still have to find yours. Just keep working at it, as the right sort of practice will certainly make perfect.

Cool! Looks like the green belt is going to get hit with that axe kick ^_^

Woah. If that greenbelt doesn't move out of
the way or do an upper block, he's doomed.

Thank you. As I wrote above, the illustrations were done for an interview with the black belt on the left, so luckily for the green belt, that kick wasn't really aimed at him, otherwise I don't think anything could have stopped it. Lucky him.

The man on the left looks like one of the instructors at my Kung Fu school. But anyways, I have to say, this is amazing work. I really love it =)

how fun. I like the style and their poses. It's less stiff than some of the other martial arts images I've seen on DA
