Shen meets his parents by JWiesner Shen meets his parents by JWiesner
"My parents... hated me. Do you understand? They wronged me. And.. I.. will make it right!"
"They loved you! They loved you so much that having to send you away killed them!"


Shen's parents weren't actually shown in the movie except as nicely animated Chinese shadow play figures in the intro of Kung Fu Panda 2. But I drew them anyway, if stylized a bit. And older, to fit the situation. Personally think there's something weird and refreshing about seeing a villain with his mommy and daddy. Makes him humane, in a way.

I still don't entirely believe Shen died in that movie but it would be kinda nice if he met his parents in afterlife. So they got lots of things to talk over.

Or maybe they don't talk, they just get all family mushy for all eternity. I don't know.

Actually I don't even know if I believe in afterlife at all.

This is vent art anyway. Boohoo boohoo. :'D So distracted with crap lately. Aren't we all.

Edit: ~MudstarMord-Sith made this nice music video www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdmpo1… about Shen and his parents. Before it was made, she respectfully asked me for permission to use the sketches giving credits and all, and I said yes. Check it out! :D It's quite lovely.

If I may ask, why do think Shen didn't die in the movie?

Trust that feeling, bro. It'd be a miracle if he lived and a miracle is what we all need to witness. :)

Emotional images like this stab me in the heart. I feel sorry for Shen.

Me: They love you, Shen. They love you so much that banishment killed them both..

I think I've got a tear in my eye.

Anyway, great sketch! I absolutely love the way you drew them (them beaks!) – the ruffled feathers did add a nice touch to the situation. And their facial expressions were beautifully done as well, especially the relieved yet sad look on his parents' faces. If Shen did die, then I think he deserves this at the very least, in spite of the fact that he had committed countless unspeakable acts of evil. I mean, come on, even evil peacock overlords need a break sometimes.

Once again, great job!
