Makafushigi Adventure by Robaato Makafushigi Adventure by Robaato
I was very excited to receive this commission. I also applied some painting techniques and practice with this image, with the mountains in the background. The non-blurred version looks real good. So I'm happy with tryin' it and the result.

This lil' guy, people, is none other than Goku, as all of you already know. If you've never seen or read Dragonball, you may need to pack your things and move out that boulder you've been living under for the past 25 years.

This is an outside commission and only the client receives a Hi-Res.

UPDATE: Retouched and resized for print. I never got a chance to sell this one as a print, so I figured I make a few for this year. :)

Great coloring job, you nailed it on this one.
There's a patch of empty space around his staff on the left side though. Funny how small things like that can pass over your head while your working on them.

Didn't really affect the final result though, so I'm good with it. :) Glad you like it. :D

Funny thing about that boulder reference you made. in the original story (Monkey King: Journey to the west) The monkey king (Goku) is born, or explodes from a boulder. I was just reading up on that so I found it funny that you said that.

It looks great, and I am sure the commissioner will be appreciative of all the hard work you put into this piece. The colors and pose are superb, but what really makes this is the composition. That's a pro-level look, I think, to the layout and concept. Great job!

Very good job. Now, how about doing the one where he pulls his pants down and starts to do push ups on his tail? Quote Krilin: ...You have no dignity, do you?...
