Lee Majin, Fierce Heart

June 10, 2016

Intending to work on one of two other painting projects that I had been working on since last weekend, I was surprised that inspiration struck on a completely different and barely started painting from a sketch I made a couple weeks back. Inspiration can be unpredictable.


Of the team of four, Majin is the fierce heart. Her nature is fire - but she doesn't fly off the handle, she's rather controlled. It's just that she is driven, and when injustice requires retribution, count on Majin to burn the purifying flame in the lanterns of her eyes.

 who is thewoodenboy? 


Daniel lives in the Orient with his wife and son. He's a digital artist-designer who studied Media Arts and Animation receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2002.

He spent three wonderful years teaching design courses in character art, design fundamentals, artistic drawing, creative thinking, and digital art software as a Professor of Computer Graphic Design at Chungkang College of Cultural Arts in South Korea.

These days he shares his love of creativity by merging the drawing and acting skills of animation into teaching EFL to cute Asian children.


Weaving through and around his day job is his project, Character Issues, a brand of his vision and style of character art & design - plus whatever other creative art project that comes across his desk.

Thanks for visiting!
