Ado

The boss of Cloudy Park in KDL3; Ado is a master painter who can bring a picture to life, right off the cloud-canvas! In the art-battle, Ado will paint a simplified form of one of KDL2's bosses in this order: Ice Dragon, Sweet Stuff, Mr. Shine & Mr. Bright, and Kracko. Each one is only a fraction as hard as it's real world self; all four of the bosses can be dealt with fairly quickly. Finally, Ado jumps out from hiding, and begins to run around the stage, swiping at Kirby with a brush as a last resort attack. Contact is all that is needed at this point to sent the painter flying. Ado is either a 'relative' of Adeleine, from Kirby 64, or they are the same person.
>XionGaTaosenai mentioned in 'Gurus that Ado might be based off of a Chinese legend, which got my gears a-turnin'. I could not recall a single painter of Ado's magnitude in Chinese mythology, however, there is a very famous group of Taoist sages called The Eight Immortals, of which I am very familiar with. (Here's a story! Gather 'round, kiddies!) ~The leader of the eight, Lu Tung-Pin, was alone at a tavern late one night, drinking much rice-wine, and living-up the moment, like we all wish to be. The tavern's owner was growing suspicious of Lu, since he had been there all night, and consumed much of the best, and most expensive, stuff the establishment had to offer; and that he showed no signs of stopping, or paying! When confronted about the bill, Lu simply said that he had no money to pay his tab. At this, the owner nearly flew into an outrage, but Lu stood up and walked over to the plain wall of the tavern. The bar-tender watched on as in only a few minutes, Lu was able to paint a large and incredibly realistic looking crane on the tavern's wall. Lu then explained to the owner that people will come from far and wide to view the beautiful bird on his wall, and the increased business will repay his extensive bill. Apprehensive at first, the tavern's owner agreed to this and Lu was free to go. By the next day, the tavern was filled with people who had come to gaze at the painted crane, and purchase a drink or two at the bar. In no time, the bill Lu had accumulated that night was paid off, and the tavern now had regular customers. Suddenly, the realistic crane painting flashed, and off the bird came from the wall. The Lu's crane flew away, yet the bar had continued to generate good profit. ~Coincidentally, another of The Eight Immortals, Lan Tsai-Ho, had an ambiguous gender. No one could tell if he was male or female, from the way he dressed and wore his hair. He was a young boy/ girl who liked to sing and dance. ~Further delving into this recalls the 'historical' eight immortals of China, who were an actual group of painters and poets revered for their artistic and literary superiority. Chinese Guru-man, out :)

Hilarious description. Very Happy
EDIT: Nevermind. It's been edited.

(Not talking to anyone, especially Krakocloud. Just late on posting all this) You've read what is written up in the description box... But that's not what you want to hear, is it?! You just want to hear about the character's gender; as if it were some divine fruit to devour for complete, universal enlightenment! Nobody questions the gender of the average Waddle Dee or Scarfy, because their forms are so outlandish that no normal person would care if it was male or female. But when a human-like character, such as our fair Ado, is shown, everyone all-of-a-sudden feels the need to label them like they intend to mate with them. Take for example, the humble Cappy. In the games, it is all too common to run into this creature; but when would one ever ponder its sex? However, all things change in the anime, where every Cappy is given specific human qualities, and defined gender, so no one will disorient themselves. Certain characters are intended to be male (in the games), such as KING Dedede, SIR Meta Knight, and unapparently, the protagonist, Kirby. Deliberate female labeling is clearly defined by bows and/or makeup, in characters like Grill and Chuchu, but may be less apparent in more realistic beings, i.e. Acro. That is where Ado comes in. Stuck in the middle-- lacking the definitive characteristics to warrant either gender stereotype, and complicating the matter by wearing ambiguous clothing and displaying both boy/ girl mannerisms. Is conclusion, most of the inhabitants of Dreamland are taken to be genderless, and therefore, all characters should be considered genderless. It is a videogame. It is not 'our world', so any notion of gender should be discarded. Though certain characters are generally defined as a specified sex, and are referred to with such pronouns, it all comes down to personal preference. Some may not agree with my opinion on the matter, but it does no good to question me. I am not the Great Guru Bimblesnaff, but with all this ranting, I sure feel like 'im!

Whilst Ado/Adeleine's name comes from Mizumori Ado, an illustrator, singer, voice actor, artist, and novelist who was the illustrator for KDL3 and K64. That said, Ado is most likely female. Also Adeliene is officially a girl at the least. And the picture coming to life concept in Kirby was really first used by Paint Roller, where it was probably carried over to Ado&Adeliene later. The concept is actually widely used in Japanese works, although the chinese legend described is likely to be the origin.
Dedede-Daimyo   [Jul 06, 2009 at 08:20 PM]
Ah, yes! That was my first assumption-- that the character was a direct representation of one of the people responsible for the production of those two games. I know artists tend to place themselves somewhere in their works... I'm just glad I didn't make the mistake of saying he was based on Shinichi Shimomura! I agree with all you say, Minon; you are intensely smart!

*fanboy... er, fangirl spasm* Man, you've already made it so far in your sculpture collection... and I finally get to see one I was especially looking forward to! Laughing Not only can you do pink puff balls, blue penguins and, well, heavy moles, you can sculpt human figures with perfection too! Amazing! It reflects the style of the official art perfectly, especially the eyes. I like the way her hair spikes out in the back. Ado will always be a mystery to the Kirby fandom, but the Chinese legend you explained in the description is very interesting! At least I've learned something. I absolutely love the smooth color mixing on her rainbow paintbrush. I never knew the name Ado actually came from somewhere. Awesome!

I recall a friend of mine talking to me about a Asian myth about a little girl who got a paintbrush or something, and whatever she painted came to life. I'm not sure what it's name was about, or if he was remembering it correctly, but I thought I might as well point it out. As for the sculpture itself, perfect as always. The only thing that sets me off is the odd roundish-rectangle shape of Ado's head... maybe I just have bad eyesight. Hm.
Destructo-Knight   [Jul 07, 2009 at 11:48 AM]
Holy Science! you have even masterd human forms as well I love everything about this sculpture Laughing the head and body shape, the clothing, the hair and hat! and especially the eyes. the details are just awesome! and this sculpture looks lilke it could be from an anime!
gerugeon   [Jul 07, 2009 at 12:06 PM]
This is simply cute and awesome! I love so much Ado!
krackocloud   [Jul 07, 2009 at 04:28 PM]
Hey. The description suddenly inflated like, to the power of 10 five times. :\
Screffy   [Jul 07, 2009 at 06:44 PM]
Wow! I never knew there was a history behind a painter making things come to life from his paint brush, but something puzzles me Dedede-Daimyo. Ado looks more like Adeleine than what he looks like in KDL3. If you watch the credits after defeating Dark Matter for the first time, Ado is shown to have his/her bonet on the back of his/her head. Plus Ado's hair style is different from Adeleine: he/she has less spikey hair in the back, and the forehead is covered. P.S. Your artwork is so awesome. Smile

DUUUUDDEEE! Explosive Kirby's in da house! Dedede Daimyo, you just blew my mind. How did you research ALL that?!
AnimeKittyCafe   [Jul 15, 2009 at 02:40 PM]
YOUR HEAD ASPLODE!
Dedede-Daimyo   [Aug 06, 2009 at 02:03 PM]
Thank you, everyone~! Yes, I did in fact base this figure on that of Adeleine, seen in Kirby 64. When I first made this sculpture, I did not consider the two separate characters, so I just went with the more reconsigned design. However, I kept in mind small details that could distinguish between the two, if I ever decided to make an official Adeleine figure. This Ado has brown eyes and paintbrush of primary colors (contrasted with the paintbrush of the Paint Roller sculpture, which has secondary colors; go see!). The upcoming Adeleine figure will look exactly like her Crystal Shards counterpart. If I could go back in time, I would change this Ado to appear more like the KDL3 version.
