Tripitaka


Another quickie, this time of Tripitaka from the 70's TV series 'Monkey'. I loved that show growing up.

About 2-3 hours in Photoshop. Background textures made with my custom brushes.

Thanks!

Nicole- There are a lot of clips from the show on Youtube. It's basically a Chinese martial arts comedy, humourously dubbed in English.

Sorry, I should correct myself. It's a Japanese (not Chinese) comedy TV show about the Chinese tale, 'Journey to the West', dubbed in English. It was a massive hit here in Australia.

Hi Chris,
Nice painting of the Asian woman - not familiar with this series. Just started a photoshop painting class in Cincinatti - about an 1.5 hour drive North from my home in KY. First class was all about custom brushes - guess I need to kick my lazy arse into gear and learn that stuff! :-)
Here's a link to the class,

Dave Nash is our instructor - an incredible artist and a surprise to find he's not migrated to one of the coasts :-o
Take care, Jonathan Gilpin
