    ChoW#221 :: Sun Wukong - The Monkey King

    ChoW#221 :: Sun Wukong - The Monkey King



    ROUND #221 :: Sun Wukong – The Monkey King


    DESCRIPTION


    Sun Wukong – The Monkey King

    Now this is a very interesting character from the Chinese epic novel “Journey to the West”. The novel tells the story of The Monkey King accompanying a monk on an epic journey to India. Sun Wukong is incredibly strong and has the power to transform himself into 72 different creatures and objects; however when he turns himself in to a human form, he’s not able to hide his monkey tail! The myth of the Monkey King inspired many movies, tv-shows and manga like the 2008 movie “The Forbidden Kingdom” and ofcourse the manga and anime “Dragonball”. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journey...opular_culture)

    Now it’s time this character inspires you!

    Design Sun Wukong, The Monkey King!

    • Think of his attributes, like his monkey tail (when in human form) and his staff.
    • Setting can be anything, but make him recognizable as the Monkey King!


    Some inspiration and information:


    Good luck!

    Enslaved - Odyssey To The West? Big game, just released, same inspiration :p Anyhoot, I think I'll take a pass on this one. I'll probably get tainted by the game and I don't really like re-doing existing characters.

    Tuner people, not Turner.

    A mind that wanders so much, it brings back souvenirs.

    I love the Monkey King, but every time he's brought up in any context I can't help but think of Dragon Ball.

    @Arthur:
    Going for the demon aspect huh ? Quiet thrilling and wild. And I like the depth effect in the bg.

    Heres my first impression on him.
    From what I read Wukong is neither kind nor wise. He appears to be greedy and impatient, just like a child.
    So I will give him a look that shows his immaturity.

    Going in order:
    1. Getting refs
    2. Planning the layout
    3. paint !

    First start.
