Always thought this was brilliant. Everybody's postures are incredibly funny... not to mention the beautiful visual.

I just love the gleaming light behind the mountains and the flying leafs and the picture's dynamic and this beautiful paper-cut-outs-look.

This really strikes a perfect balance between detail and stylization. The silhouettes are very striking and instantly recognisable (I love how you drew Zhu Bajie's rake) and the colours are amazing. I love it!

Very nice work! The silhouettes communicate really well, and the red~yellow background makes this piece even more striking.

CHINESE CLASSICAL FICTION 西游记“THE JOURNEY TO THE WEST" written in 18century!SO IMPRESSED!!!!I LOVE THE DUSK!
BY the way, uh, in our Chinese culture, dragon is kind of powerful and sacred animal,rather than a dreadful monster
^-^i'm so happy that foreign friends an be inspired by chinses culture~~~

It is a little funny, the total drama of it and then you see the front character pointing his finger at the dragon as it is almost atop him. Really put a smile on my face. I love it! Love the light and shadow, the silhouettes and the epic dragon.
