The Monkey King by gaby14link The Monkey King by gaby14link
Wukong, The Monkey King

SO... More League of Legends Fanart!
Because I'm just in love with this game. Playing as Wu is just so fun!

EDIT: I made it look more like my current style. I say it's 1000% better now tbh.

The magic monkey born from a stone who learned several magical techniques and did a few things that pissed off heaven and was imprisoned for 500 years before his journey west towards India for the sutras; is a bit of a sweet-hearted douchebag


OR


The monkey alien who lost his memory and after his journey for the Dragon Balls eventually turned into Earth's heroic savior with his proficiency for solid martial arts skills and ki-based techniques; is a bit naive yet pure-hearted

Born from an egg on a mountain top
The punkiest money that ever popped
He knew every magic trick under the sun
To tease the Gods and everyone and have some fun

Oh my god, I loved the way you drew him, so dynamic and cool and colorful. I've seen your work before, to imagine you would compliment my art is such an honour. Thank you very much, watching you here from now on. :)

It looks....well, shiny! What I mean is the yellow, I don't know if it was intentional but it looks like shiny gold almost. 
Everything else about this picture is great too! I've always loved your art and it seems you're getting even better!

The gold colour was intentional yes! 

Baw I've been working on and off for the last few years to get better and it's great to know it shows !

:iconclapplz: Oh my goodness I mean this is just beautiful I watched all of the video and it just makes me want to cry after seeing how much detail you put into this picture and I assume your others before and now after this... It's just so lovely... Actually this is not my first time glancing at your work I am actually a follower of yours on Wukong's ask tumblr. To be honest your tumblr got me into LoL and my friends and I actually play it together... Lol!!! The main thing was the fact that Wukong was a playable character lol but you did your part too and with that I thank you. But yeah that's all for now I'm going to go be in awe some more... Off to attack your gallery with love bye bye XD))

Hey! awesome pic! I use paint tool SAI aswell and i was wondering how you do that choppy shadeing effect? Do you have a custom brush or something? I think it looks awesome and i'd definately want to give it a try.

I basically just cell shade as seen here :thumb343612119: but i think your effect is better.

...I'm not sure what you mean by choppy effect but all I can say is that practically everything was made by hand with the simple pen tool by default, I'm kinda noob at the program so I don't know how to apply different brushes ): You could watch the progress video linked in the description so you get an idea of how I do it though!

Thanks for the comment!!

I meant like in stead of just a solid black for the shadows yours is comprised of lines at the edges, doesnt sound like theres a secret to it from your response though hahaha maybe ill just give it a try :p cheers! (btw wukong is on this weeks free rotation, just played him yesterday ';D haha)

No worries :D Yeah, you should read it. It's quite good...Hehe, yeah it is very hard to find, but really good. It's not like most modern novels and I like the way it mixes eastern mythology with morals. Great picture!

And you did all that in 13 minutes of a video :O not including the full time which I assume is much longer it took considering you were speeding it up for use to see. Damn all those details :faint:

Thank you so much!:dance::glomp:
The total recorded time was 18 hours @_@ And the video is sped up x64. Besides i had to cut skip a lot of stuff I scrapped: I tried at least 2 other ways of shading, which I didn't like :XD: That's why when I start shading for real, in the video you see the background is already done and its already soft shaded, hehe
So if I had included EVERYTHING this video would be at least 20 minutes long :noes: but totally worth it!
