Tom Yum Goong by cool-slayer Tom Yum Goong by cool-slayer
Tony Jaa can kick your ass. Shut up, yes he can.
I colored up this semi-old lineart I had lying around the other day... I haven't felt too good about anything in general, so I colored it to procrastinate and avoid doing or thinking of other stuff. The drawing is back from when I saw Tom Yum Goong at the movies, some months ago. It was a pretty cool martial arts movie, not as good as Ong Bak, but still gives a taste of what this man, Tony Jaa, can do. He's one of the best martial artists alive, and the stuff he pulls in his movies is impressive. Go see Ong Bak if you don't believe me!
I used a photo reference for the pose.
Hope you guys like it, let me know what you think.

Th extreme sports part was really weak. They're all up in the warehouse and then...skaters come from every part of town to do battle with him. It was super-cheesey in a bad way. Also, the guy has, like, no charisma. Jet Li and Jackie Chan have a certain presence to them that Tony Jaa just doesn't. Maybe when he gets some more acting under his belt he'll turn out better.

As for the fighting, I was blown away with his brutal style, but I really think they've overexposed him in the last movie. It's less brutal and more campy, to me.

Anyway, you're really talented!

I agree with you, that scene looked like it was copied from some video game, like Streets of Rage or something, with skating thugs coming at him, and the dudes in the bikes, and what not. Not that good. And overall Tom Yum Goon wasn't that good also - I liked Ong Bak so much more. They probably had a bigger budget for this second movie and just focused on putting in scenes as crazy as possible and filming on more expensive locations, which kind of took away from the simplicity of Ong Bak. In Ong Bak you could really just focus on his fighting style, that is pretty brutal and a novelty of sorts. There's not many movies featuring Muay Thai as the main fighting style, so I guess people were pretty blown away by the scenes, it was new and hardly ever seen before.

He's a terrific athlete, from what I've seen in the movies, but I also agree, he's not that good as an actor. That being said, I don't really appreciate any of Jackie Chan's latest movies, he's just become to... hollywoodized, perhaps. Jet Li does some good stuff though. I loved Danny the Dog. I guess it's not easy to find a good athlete who is also a good actor, I don't know, but maybe he'll grow to become one!

And thanks again! and sorry for this huge comment... sometimes I write too much hehe

Yeah, you usually have one or the other. That's why I feel Jaa won't be a super star. Jackie Chan and Jet Li came out as monsters right from the beginning. I'm kinda sad that Donnie didn't see too much success in the US, though. He was in, what, Blade 2 and Hero? C'mon. Give that man some screen time.

haha it would be interesting to see tony and chuck fighting each other. I also think tony would kick chuck's ass :D he's just too awesome. Yeah, actually I made this drawing with The Protector in mind (which the original title is Tom Yum Goong). I thought Ong Bak was better though, but The Protector was pretty crazy :D I can't wait to see what this guy is going to do next. He's so impressive.
