Not going to lie man seeing this and the other pics you drew of you own personal vision of wukong looks like a something that would be an anime/cartoon, manga/comic, or a video game either way I would watch, read, and play XD this is so awesome!))
Nice work! I have seen so many versions of 孫悟空. But this is the first time that sun-monkey with a gun, but What confused me most is that there was no gun in Tang Dynasty. Wukong is the symbol of justice, freedom and kind-hearted in Chinese traditional literature. Most Chinese people love him because of his audacity and wit. I'm so sorry to see that you've made a grammar mistake. In my opinion, the right order should be 火猴戰士, which could be translated directly into "Fire Monkey Warrior".
Thanks a lot man and thank you for your advice. I have so much love and respect for the chinese traditional literature but i understand what your feeling because i felt the same when i first start thinking about this project...but you know, as you've said, there's so many version of the monkey king and almost all of them stick to the traditional legend... what i wanted to do here is to make something that doesn't follow the legendary journey of the west because that was over done and i didn't wanna make "another" monkey king like everbody knows... i wanted to do something differnt,timeless ( that's why he has a gun ),with all my influences in there (japanese and chinese mix lol) and just use the "icon" of the monkey king but not his real journey...
In my project, my character is sun wukong's descendant, he'll have almost all the powers that the real monkey king had...as you can see, he doesn't have the same appearance, i wanted to make him more like a gorilla than a little monkey but he still have that awareness, mischievousness, smartness, and even bigger strenght that the real monkey king had too...he have the sense of justice but in a different way !
Well i just wanted too justify my choice a little so you can understand that i didn't want in any ways to make a wrong interpretation of that legend that i love and respect so much and precisely is because i love it that i didn't want to make a version that stick to it, because i knew that would be a bad thing
And thank you also for the right translation i should have ask people before doing that way lol because i admit that i don't speak chinese i don't know kanji's very well ! hey so next time, can i ask you to transale me something ? because i want to do the other characters of the project with their names in kanji's !
Thanks you man, your comment was very important and helpful for me, hope we can talk agin !
Yes, you are right, creativity is very important for an artist, and i admire your drawing skill very much! it's my pleasure to translate something for you. You can also visit [link] for translation. I'm a student you know, so i'm afraid that i'm unable to use computer very frequency. By the way, i love your monkey!
