Zhuge Liang Portrait by Ahyicodae Zhuge Liang Portrait by Ahyicodae
Though I'm not too good at drawing from my imagination, I can copy things from references. This is Three Kingdoms' Zhuge Liang, from the Chinese television series in which he is played by Tang Guo Qiang. I just paused the vcd and started drawing. He doesn't look quite Chinese enough... somehow he ended up with a western look to him. It really bothers me. Other than that, I'm pleased with how this turned out.

Zhuge Liang was a brilliant strategist and politician who lived around 200 AD during the Three Kingdoms era. He's my favorite character, ever, from my favorite novel ever, which is Three Kingdoms. The...er... television series could've used a little work... particularly on the fight scenes. However, Zhuge Liang is still an awesome character.

Edit: Forgot to add... this was done with a ball-point pen on bristol paper.

Looks nice... I am trying to work on my own version of Zhuge Liang... but I hope to find some references from the Classic TV series... I like that actor more than "Red Cliff" 's actor...

He really was a geniouse of his time. I adore the rival relationship he had with Sima Yi XD. Especially when Zhuge Liang sent Sima Yi womens clothes to taunt him when he holed himelf up lmfaooo!!!

I love this picture, it certinately gives him justuice, and although he does have a little bit of a westen look, I still recognized him as chinese.
