well I get inspired by the circle, I think is more flexible than the other two shapes, in these case, I decided to create a pigeon/fighter/monk/Shaolin because I think pigeons are funny and looks kinda dumb, so they are really easy to underestimate.
I take reference from some others draws of Shaolin fighters, monks, and pigeons as well. I tried to take and merge some features of both, like the bandage boots (I don't know it that's the correct name) and the foot of the pigeon and the baldness with the curb form of the head.
I learn that the circle form could make the drawings more dynamic and flexible, like the Shaolin fight style, so it's helped me to create an interesting character. Thaks for the class
