Kung fu monkey by Keaze Kung fu monkey by Keaze
I've found a sketch from a few years ago (must've been 2008) and I decided to finish it because I really like the character design.

No, it wasn't inspired by Kung fu panda. Sadly, the sketch was made when I had no means of checking its accuracy, which is u usually what I try to do. I'm just generalizing by calling it kung fu, don't hold it against me.

Kung fu majmun

Pronašla sam skicu od prije nekoliko godina (valjda 2008) pa sam ju odlučila obojati jer mi se baš svidio dizajn lika.

Ne, nije me nadahnula Kung fu panda.

Looks like it has some inspiration from journey to the west. Did you start out with a particular species in mind?

borilačke vještine rulez :D! treniraš li nešto, ili gledaš li treninge? to je jako korisno kad želiš nacritati borce ;-).

i jako mi se sviđa ovi plavi sjaj, posebno na hlačama.

Trenirala sam karate nekoliko godina kad sam bila mala.
Obično pogledam neke videe prije nego krenem crtati borce (primjerice, za Bodoriko sam potražila videe mečeva s naginatom, a za samuraje ponekad gledam iaido tehnike). Ovaj crtež je jedan od rijetkih slučajeva kada sam lika nacrtala bez ikakvog prethodnog istraživanja.

Mislim da mu je baš taj sjaj dao neku dodatnu dimenziju. A i paše mu uz majicu :giggle:

(so, is that how you write "kung fu monkey" in Japanese? Is it hiragana or katakana or kanji? I can never tell the difference..)

anyways... ninja ftw! It looks very cool ^^

It's Chinese hanzi, actually. Kung fu is a Chinese martial art, not Japanese.

You just have to spend a bit of time looking at hiragana and katakana and comparing them. I had trouble differentiating the two as well at first but they do look different. Hiragana is rounder, for example.
Kanji are generally more complicated and composed of more brushstrokes. They represent words (such as nouns and roots of verbs and adjectives), not syllables like the other two.

yes, I've heard that Kanji is very complicated...

It looks complicated but after you learn around 50-70 it gets easier. Many kanji are combinations of already existing ones (for example, the kanji for vulcano is composed of a kanji for fire and mountain).

oh yeah, I've heard of that before too XD like for example a kanji for forest is two kanjis for tree? :) that simplifies it a bit... ^^;
