The other Gokuh by AnnouncerGuy The other Gokuh by AnnouncerGuy
Or rather uh... THE Gokuh, our Gokuh being the other Gokuh.....or whatever. Yeah, I'd been wanting to do some Journey to the West fanart for quite some time, ever since I read an english translation some years back. I really enjoyed it, it's a little like the Odyssey in that it's hella long but at the same time stuff is constantly happening, only JTW is probably more fun (in my opinion). So here I have the four main characters: Son Gokuh the Monkey King who is portrayed as mischievious yet wise (which is strange since he's always a retard in anime), Tripitaka (Xuanzang) who is the virtuous but somewhat faint-hearted priest that frees Gokuh and takes him as his disciple, Pigsy, the second disciple who is somewhat lazy yet loyal, and of course Sandy......nobody knows what the hell Sandy looks like....he was kind of just there.... Fun bunch.

I finally did art, FINALLY!!! School is torture I tell you, absolute torture and all I really wanna do is draw!! I hate society!!!!

done in colored pencil, don't hate me, I know about as much about China as I do about rocket science.....In case you don't know, pretty much nothing.

In the time travel season of Dinosaur King, our main protagonists team up with Dr Z and his Alpha Gang to go to ancient China, where they meet the priest that inspired the story "Journey to the West". The Alpha Gang disguise themselves as the priest and his companions, Sandy, Pigsy, and Monkey King.

I remember seeing the first ten minutes of what i thought had to be the CHEAPEST-LOOKING version of Journey To The West ever filmed, with music stolen from 1979's Star Trek: The Motion Picture and the cheesiest looking Gokou costume that made Hanuman from the Thai-Japanese co-production Hanuman & The Six Ultra Brothers look good by comparison. Of course, it was added as filler for a bootleg VHS of some episodes of the Super Sentai series Goseii Sentai Dairanger at the time.

That aside, this is quite an impressive piece. And I see one or two areas where the influence of manga artist Akira Toriyama has found its way into the piece.

May I have permission to feature this on my website for a school project (Mythology final)? I will credit and not lay any claim to this picture. There will be a link leading back to this page.
