I have always wanted to draw Chinese Mythologies and especially anything from “Journey To the West”. It was one of my favorite childhood stories and still is today. Here’s a sketch that i did today really quick which i hope will become somewhat even more in the future. it was mostly drawn from memory so i definitely need to get more reference on his clothing, especially during the time when he was promoted to be a God and wore a higher class warrior outfit.
it feels nice working in pencil again. There was a time where i was using the “James jean pens” a little too much for everything. i know you’re supposed to be more confident with your lines, much like the rules of calligraphy, but i think i’ve moved onto a different stage where i’m more concerned with the design aspect of the drawing.
