THE GREAT TEN #2
Written by Tony Bedard
Art by Scott McDaniel & Andy Owens

Cover by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau

The Old Chinese Gods have returned and they’re out for vengeance! With the citizens of China caught in the middle, the Old Gods battle against the Great Ten, but the super functionaries are no match for the angry, ancient gods, not when one member – the Celestial Archer – chooses to turn against his team and fight alongside the gods!

Dear Stanley,
As usual your talent sings...
Great anatomical tension here. Quite believable.
I hope you will allow me some constructive criticism on a minor detail however.
As you might be aware, the bow and arrow was exploited (and refined)in China over centuries in ways quite different than in the West.
The use of THUMB RINGS was quite prevalent in ancient times,a device well suited for launching an arrow.

In addition the chock which the arrow is laid against on the bow with the LEFT hand appears absent in your painting.
Might I suggest a cursory study of archeology to add a further level of believability and authenticity to your fantasy work...
With respect,Stephen Fitz-Gerald

I cringe every time I see an "archer" in my deviantWATCH box. The reason being is that very few artists seem to do there homework when it comes to depicting something that they may not have ever done or seen before. I do like the asian references in the background, but was very distracted by the factual errors in the piece.

To start with the arrows in the quiver have feathers, but the one on the bow does not. The hand drawing the bow is not holding the bowstring correctly, either. Secondly, the arrow is on the wrong side of the bow, and it should be resting on the extended index finger of that hand.

Other than that, it's a very nice piece of work, despite the detail flaws ....
