cool btw malikstudios what do u think of battle of gods and could u give me a few pointers on fixing my dbz universe without having me contradict myself and my style cause it seems i'm gonna be doing that alot
Oh boy… Oh… my… GOD! YEEEESSSS! I LOVE IT! Geez, for a Human technique-based form, this thing looks so epic! Better than the Kaio-ken! YES! Malik, you've totally impressed me. No, you've made my day even brighter! I saw this yesterday, the day I came home from a retreat, all refreshed and happy, yet really tired… Still, I'm glad I got to commission you to do this for my OC. Ba Xing Quan, Sunto's newest form, FINALLY has a design! And the design for NA kinda reminds me of U16 Pan, as does the pose. Oh, I hope she's brought back soon. But anyway, thanks again! I give it 5 stars!
Used to be how it went, but the version Malik speaks of is the style Humans teach, and the original Cyberite version turns your energy into a contrast of the chosen element you summon. So it's like an energy construct of the elements in the original Cyberite style.
Tempest's original idea was pulled almost verbatim from Avatar. Sunto was able to conjure fire, mold water to his choosing, etc. He even had a picture where Sunto was keeping rain off his head using what might as well be called water-bending.
In this version, he cannot do those things. His aura is comprised of water vapor, dust, wind, and heat, but thats it. He uses the external forces of nature (once his chi is focused properly) to simply give him greater physical strength, speed, durability, and at its peak, greater chi output. But Sunto won't be using water or anything like that as a weapon XD
I see... I only asked 'cause he's surrounded by that windy aura... made me think of airbending. Mind you, nearly every character in Bragon Ball is somehow capable of "fire-bending" (ya know, energy blast and all those things), so it wouldn't be that unusual if someone was able to light up things with his mind XD
OK, thanks, that's nice, but, to tell the truth, that's not really what I meant xD! I meant that it'd be great id I had an OC like that/drawn by Malik/in the Tournament, that I can't have, but anyway ^^! Thanks for the consideration anyway ^^! But we could do something if you want to anyway ^^!
I didn't come up with the concept, I merely took the original concept by Tempest and modified it.
Here was my pitch to Tempest, based on his original concept:
Ba Xing Do derives from the Chinese medicinal and martial arts theory of Wu Xing (Five Elements). As such, the first 4 Elements are elements of Nature (Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire). The remaining 4 Elements are elements of self (Anger, Happiness, Fear, and Love).
These Eight Elements form a cycle, each one feeding into and from the other. Fire is fed by Anger. Earth is fed by Love. Water is fed by Fear. And Wind is fed by Happiness. The ultimate discipline of Ba Xing Do is the complete harmony of the eight elements, synchronizing them completely to form the Ba Xing Quan (Eight Elements Fist).
The mastery of each element of nature must first come from mastery of one's self. Each part of the body represents one of the elements, and the source of self.
Your body itself is the Earth, with the stomach being the core and center of your chi. Fire is represented by one's own heart. Water is represented by your bones. Wind is represented by your lungs.
Each core part of the body (stomach, bones, heart, and lungs) must be trained, maintained, and properly controlled in order to first master the elements of self, for only when one knows themselves do they know of all things.
Once one has mastered self, the mind can focus the part of the body needed for mastering the four elements of nature. By focusing your chi in your stomach to control Earth, your physical power increases. By focusing your chi to your lungs to control Wind, you become faster. By focusing your chi into your heart for Fire, your body's ability to manipulate your own energy vastly increases. By focusing your chi into your bones for Water, your resiliency increases.
Each element of self must by properly focused in order to gain the control of the corresponding element of nature. Broken focus results in one being untrue to one's self, and therefore unworthy of the control of the element. At first, a student of Ba Xing Do will only be able to harmonize the corresponding element of self with that element of nature. Meaning, a novice of Ba Xing Do will only be able to make themselves faster, stronger, more resilient, or capable of greater chi output, but not all at once.
When all eight elements can be perfectly synchronized, Ba Xing Quan, the style's ultimate technique, becomes possible. All the elements cycle into one another, increasing the user's strength, speed, resiliency, and energy output by a factor of eight.
