Congrats on the win @SHADOWSTORM Didn’t notice till I looked at the higher quality render that those were people. Awesome job!


I showed that image to my mother, an she thought they were bugs, like ants and stuff.

In the eyes of the Monkey King, they’re nothing but insects waiting to be squashed. :smiley:

what about those people that only have 1 vote by voting for themselves (DEFINITELY not talking about me wink wink wink)

You got my F

what does that mean…?

Heh, hey thanks for the hat tip. I knew I didn’t execute very well this time. But I’m always happy when I can participate.


Is this female monkey in the first rendered image?

Copy-pasted from my entry:
“This is Sun Wukong, the Monkey King, from the Chinese classical “The journey to the west”. Fun fact, this is the inspiration for the character Goku, from dragon ball z. So, if it is looking like anime, that’s not a coincidence.
I tried to do something that would make justice to the absurdity of the powers of this trickster immortal monkey, So, a full on battle scene.”
I didn’t get the question, but felt like explaining this again. the journey to the west is amazing :smile:
