In the tall grass by Toxic-dolls In the tall grass by Toxic-dolls
Some ViperXMantis for...people who like this ship :D
I admittedly think they are really cute together, and it gives mantis some attention, who is unfortunately very ignored XD
I told a couple of people I planned on drawing these two, and I wasn't lying :P

Enjoy!

Viper and Mantis (C) Dreamworks kung fu panda

It is sad. Mantis even gets ignored by the writers of the movie. It is nice that in the TV show he gets more lines, and some more depth of his character.

:rage: Ugh Tigress, Viper is much prettier I say!! ):<
I think Mantis gets it the worst,although I agree the others are very neglected :( I noticed that when I draw him with the others he ends up so small hardly any details can be seen, especially if the others are full body in the frame. even in the movie/shows have this problem XD (Sometimes I wonder if the animators just don't animate him because hes so small no one would notice)

Viper is my favorite and was overjoyed when I saw the first movie's character bios, and it turned out that Viper will be a female. I'm tired of seeing male snakes =A= and they brought Viper so much justice.

However DW needs to stop doing this 'chosen one' formula. It's getting old. Po was the first and now Jack Frost.

Furious Five--The Big Four...all pushed aside for the chosen one.

In the second movie, I was shouting in my mind 'how the heck did they get caught by Shen--not once but twice!' They are dumbing the characters down, for the sake of one, that ruins a franchise. I like Mantis, but because all we hear is Po Tigress Po Tigress...storyline, I never get to connect with the dude or any of the others.

Viper and Crane are my favorites, I like them both a lot, it is hard to choose between them XD But I am really warming up to so many of the characters, they are pretty much all close together, except Tigress and PO >8(

OHHHHH MAN Jack frost, what a shame they wrote him in. THE OTHER GUARDIANS WERE 100% MORE INTERESTING I want to hear their story's, not the story about Albino Justin Bieber -__- He was so obviously playing up to the fangirl crowd (a little surprised I did not fan over him!)
Also wish Pitch had some more character, when you think about it he really had no motivation or reason for being evil XD
He was also beat up a lot, Shen got no abuse, (No one physically harmed him) so he looks really dignified as a character, but Pitch was always being humiliated so he was not very dignified or threatening like I thought he should have been.

RotG was done by a first time director, I think he will do better in the future, the movie was great for his first time.

I agree with that, the five are very incapable, makes me wonder how they did anything before Po, they were built up so much and now its just so disappointing. They should not have gotten caught the second time, or ran away in the first movie. I was so disappointed when they did and I found out the battle was just between Po and Tai lung. Lame.

I liked Viper because, she was actually the first one to be nice to Po when he joined, the others were jerks. I'm not even sure if they only did that because of Tigress's feelings on it. I see you have a distaste for both Tigress and Po? XD

Nah I'm not surprised that you are not fangirling over Jack Frost. I don't like him. I listened to a review on the movie from these hilarious movie critics and they referred to Jack as a gay anime character who shops at Old Navy XDDDD

I wish Pitch was given the villain treatment too, but nope, he was tossed around and humiliated. I expected that kind of crap from a Disney movie, not Dreamworks, I was hoping for a more satisfying backstory...I mean the movie is based on the books. In the book Pitch's character is solid, all they had to do is transfer the facts from the book onto the big screen, and Pitch would have been epic.

One he's not even a real villain, he got possessed by fearlings and two he's a father. None of these things are mentioned in the film, because had they done that, the audience would have sympathized with the 'bad guy.'

The fact that Shen didn't get abused really brought down my spirits, because now I'm not even sure if Shen is as great as we put him to be. Tai Lung threw punches and got punch. Shen just threw words and weapons, heck I would have love a fight between him and Shifu or Crane and Shen. Or having him take on all the Five in a physical fight scene, now that would have given him much more credited respect :boogie:

But what's done is done XD nothing I can do about it.

For a first timer he did do a great job. The only downside is he had the material to an even greater story right in front of him, the actually novels. Also Jack Frost doesn't even exist in the novels XD

Wow, that's a good point Toxic, how did they manage this long. Surely if trained by Shifu, one would be an even match for Shen. Also you are not alone, I was disappointed with Tai Lung only going one on one with Po and the same with Shen...fight the villain as a team =A=;;

That is actually why I have a soft spot for Viper/Po, I honestly thought they were going to be a thing in the next movies (when I was a stupid shipper kid XD) but I am glad no one is dating.

I would have treated him bad, I would have been pissed, the five worked really hard and now some immature, insensitive, untrained guy gets what I worked for? I also do not believe in fate (commenting on your journal now) so I would be like "It was just a coincidence!!! D:" I think I would be more pissed at the turtle, because Po looked like a kicked puppy a lot (I am not completely void of empathy), and tried to explain the incident himself.
I would have been like Tai Lung... -Flips tables, punches baby-

HAHAHA XD That is so him! I don't even get why he has such modern clothing. What movie critics do you listen to? I watch SO many movie critics X3 I recommend you watch the nostalgia critic on youtube, he reviews movies we would have grown up with as kids :P he is hilarious. (Do not watch the scooby doo review first, it is confusing unless you have seen his other reviews, but all the other ones you can watch randomly and you will get it. XD)

What was his back story? XD he was evil...because he was evil O_O?
I understand having to make chances to put a book to a movie, but they skimped out to much on pitch XD I do not think I would have bad him possessed, because then the heros look like bad guys when they abuse the body of someone with no free will XD Would be a little complex for a kids movie. I heard about the little girl he had, I thought he turned into pitch after she passed away and he got angry and depressed? I need to do more research.

You like Shen abuse to? :O We should team up and beat him up some time XD
I think he is a good fighter, but not as good as the five, or Shifu, That's why he needs weapons because he cannot rely on himself to take over china
OMG REALLY? I need to read the books then, they sound much better. They should have just focused on the original guardians like the books.

All together they should be able to kick Shen's butt XD unless they try to stop the canon ball the way Rhino did....should have dodged.
to be fair no one really fought Shen XD Po just threw stuff at him, I don't think the five missed much.
