Chuanmei graduates honoured gods, drawing dragon received tens of millions of praise: goose bumps are all up
Have you seen a dragon?
What does the dragon in your imagination look like?
Is it swimming in the mountains and forests, stirring up the wind and clouds to call thunderstorms? Or spit out the old and add to the new, and the rice fields are harvested with the breath?
These depictions of the gods come from Wu Junda, a 98-year Sichuan American graduate Xision.
The combination of the dragon in the painting with the characteristic scenery of various parts of China not only creates a visual beauty, but also brings shocking thinking about people and nature.
The fixed topic selected by Chuanmei Interactive Media Experimental Class is to choose one of the several ancient classics given to create.
Xision was very touched by "Sunny to rain, earth to sky, and heaven to mountains" in "Sound Rhythm Enlightenment". Many bizarre pictures and inspirations suddenly appeared in his mind, so he decided to present it with a brush.

Appreciable from afar, his works are magnificent, but also very detailed.
In the terraced fields, lanterns are used to ride oxen, and rice seedlings are planted for harvesting. The peasants' clothing and postures are all exquisite and true.

The reason why he chooses terraced fields as the main background of the picture is because the terraced fields are the crystallization of farmers' long-term labor and wisdom. They also have the beauty of rhythm and can express the rhythm of the entire picture.
The dragon has the ability to call the wind and call the rain in Chinese culture, and its appearance represents hard work and a good harvest.
So the whole set of works is a tribute to Chinese farming culture.

Legend of god
Although Xision was known to the majority of netizens through his works, he has long been a god-like figure in the CG circle.
At the end of November 2020, the GGAC Global Game Animation Art Concept Competition came to an end. As an "Oscar" in the field of CG art, the works that can be awarded are the most professionally recognized works.
When Xision participated in the first GGAC, he won the 2D gold award in the campus group. The second GGAC won the 2D silver award in the campus group. The third GGAC directly won the special prize.

According to Xision, in the context of Chinese traditional culture, choosing the theme of ancient gods and animals (blue dragon, white tiger, vermilion bird, basalt) is to reflect the conflict between traditional culture and modern civilization.
An excellent painter can never "paint like". The story and cinematic sense of the picture, the impact and attractiveness of the picture, and the moral behind the picture will be directly transmitted to the audience and be sensitively captured.
Xision has always been very concerned about the connotation of the works. He hopes that the values and worldview in the paintings are self-consistent and can cause the resonance of the same thinking.

Love is motivation
Regardless of the shining golden resume of the great god, the youth and sweat devoted to this is also unimaginable for ordinary people.
Xision first came into contact with painting when he was 3 years old, and his mother was a teacher of enlightenment. There are many problems in the color and structure of the works in junior high school.
In the high school interest class, he learned about the new world of CG for the first time, and also tried to learn, but at that time his ability was not enough, so he gave up, determined to lay a solid foundation first.
Sketches, watercolors, comics, board paintings... He kept experimenting with various painting techniques and painting themes, actively looking for his own style, and making progress all the time.
In the third year of high school, Xision was admitted to Chuanmei’s interactive media experimental class and began to reopen the door of CG to meet challenges in a new field.

Four years of college has become one of the most important stages in his painting career. His painting level has improved rapidly, and every piece of work is breaking through.
Even with such an advanced level, when participating in the GGAC competition, Xision still drafted half a year in advance, drawing from 8 am to one or two in the morning every day after school starts, and finally selected 5 of the hundreds of drafts for the competition.
The 23-year-old genius painter received numerous praises just after graduation. Not only did the media rush to report, but also the brand owners. But this Chongqing boy Xision still maintains a humble and peaceful attitude.
"If I can, I hope to paint all my life."
For him, painting is just to present the world in his own eyes to the world. The Chinese legend and the beautiful scenery of mountains and rivers naturally merge with each other, and then use their own time to polish it.
