Sun Wukong

Sketch of Sun Wukong the Monkey King from the Chinese novel “Journey to the West”.

In my version he can control his heavy staff also with his tail – this way he can reach out much further. I imagined a moment of surprise for the enemy.

I wanted him to not only look monkey-like but also very manly, so he could first protect me and then I could fall in love 😀 … wait what? Different story.
