During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.
The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.
I get very defensive of film as an art form, and animation especially, because of stuff like this. People sometimes place it lower on the scale of narrative, or say it isn’t as powerful as the written word, but there are things like this; things you can only imply through the visual language that’s exclusive to film. It’s communicating an idea in a way that you might not even realize, but you feel it. It’s a whole different way of storytelling.

But what if Sora turned into a mermaid on a world where they’re not so nice like Neverland or Port Royal and started getting intense sudden urges to drown people.
#here let me just help you across this lagoon and#my god you’re pale you’d shine like a full moon at the bottom of the sea forever#wait i mean no#the water’s super cold we should get you out#but at the bottom you wouldn’t shiver you’d be still and beautiful forever#NO NO NO#your legs are too tired and you’re swallowing seawater i need to help before you run out of air#because it’s mine your breath should be mine i’ll wrap you up and pull it from your lungs#and we’ll go down down down and you’ll stay with me forever#……….
This escalated way more quickly than I meant for it to, I am so sorry

I NEED THESE IN MY LIFE!!!
Practicing of human figure (2) (first post here)
The first drawing was very early one. Weak and unskilled I think. The second drawing was after six months I had started this practice. Look at the tiny circles beside drawings :-) These were given by my teacher because I drew right proportion. So precious.
Someone who studied with me said “It’s just waste my time. Because drawing has to be something sensitive and freely. This practice makes me as a drawing machine.” I agree with her. But, you know, we are comicbook artist so have to be a drawing machine. We need to draw a lot of human body without a model or original picture in various angle for a very short period of time if we want to be a professional.
This practice is for people like that. If you are amateur artist and don’t want to be a drawing machine, you don’t need this. But every professional artist is drawing machine I think. And they always crave for development of drawing skill. So I’ll do this again after finishing my book :-)
Sorry for nagging :)) It reminds me when I was a useless a budding comicbook artist. I cried a lot at that moment.
