Victory poses

Unread postby Lady Wu » Mon Feb 12, 2007 4:46 pm

Zuo Ci's victory pose intrigues me. It's a move called "Wild Horse Spreads its Mane" in Taichi, but AFAIK you can't end a set with that move. Furthermore, Zuo Ci's attacks in the game all seem pretty antithetical to Taichi!

An other one that bugs me is Cao Cao's in DW5. His DW4 pose is fine, and his DW5 one is fine up to the point where he lifts his left arm toward the sky and looks at it. It just feels like, uh, a girly move.

And what's with Pang Tong's levitating? I mean, not even *Zhang Jiao* levitates like that!

Yeah that was a thing that annoyed me about Cao Cao, I thought that it made him look weak.

It is suppose to be him holding up the heavens.

I don't mind Cao Cao's pose at all.

Sima Yi's is one of my favourites. The reason I like it so much is that I made a huge beefcake character with Sima Yi's moveset, named Mr. Suck, and he does that move whenever I win a level and it always makes me fill with happiness.

I like Guan Yu's DW5 pose. When he twirls the Guan Dao though his finger. That's some bad ass shit.

Zhang Fei's victory pose should just be him cracking open a musou wine and indulging himself until the next battle.

The Man's pose is good.
What's wrong with you?
It might be the best one in the game.

Dong Zhuo's pose is also a fine expression of his character. He stands with split legs and gives that "You will never escape me..." gesture. Classic!

I almost have the same opinion about Meng Huo, but his pose resembles more to the "on the prowl" gesture. :)
I don't get proud when I finish my arts after all the hard work... until you like them. Why? Because I'm doing it for your sake.

I like Dong Zhuo's too. I also like Cao Pi's. Both of their victory poses look pretty evil, and also happen to look great with custom characters!
