WIP: Sun Wukong

This is what I managed to work on today:

As you can probably notice from the first panel, that the underdrawing was based on the form which mother nature had already outlined for me 🙂 I just followed the lines. It was a good feeling 🙂 when I finished the basic composition. Next step is to work in the background…which I will attempt to do this week.

Sun Wukong is probably the most famous character in chinese mythology. His story is also spread out all throughout Asia. He was also my favourite figure in chinese folklore as a child.
Also today, I sent my application off to ymc –its time for me to come out of the woodwork and start getting know other creatives here in my community and taking the chance to collaborate and leave my mark. If you are an illustrator, a painter, a designer, a composer, a creative mind in general who would like to broaden their network and collaborate on projects make sure to check em’ out 🙂  Meanwhile, I am three sheets to the wind and need my beauty sleep. Gute Nacht aus Minga 🙂 Ihr Paintblotch

    1. Haha! Sure when its finshed 🙂 if it turns out i can have prints made up for you. I just found out that a film starring chow yun fat is due ths year…called Monkey King in english…produced in china.

  1. This first stage looks very promising. It’s a blast to see your creative process “in progress”. Do the colors in the drawing relate to the colors you expect to use in the finished piece? Or do I have to wait and see…?

    1. Hey Gabriel! It was just as much a blast for me! The colours were unintentional its just a tactic I use in order to have a better “overview” of the composition…I do this often when I make really complicated vector illustrations (eg. an explosion view of an espresso machine), I thought I should apply it to my underdrawings too. I guess I could use the colours as a basis for the final palette though 😀 thanks for the idea! heh heh!
