Always appreciated Sun Wukong and even things from other media influenced by his design, like Goku. So naturally I think this looks really awesome! There really needs to be some kind of anime of Journey to the West, and your style here would totally be a good fit for it.

Just looked up that character.

Of course, I'm going to assume you're aware that all those characters are based on the same mythology.

This is great because it is true to the legend of Monkey King and the five pillars. WuKong (aware of vacuity) was actually a monkey, not a boy who could turn into a monkey! (source = Journey to the West/Monkey). Journey to the West and Monkey are books that have the legend of WuKong (who is known here as Goku because that is his Japanese name) WuKong is really a Chinese legend! I love your version because it goes with the story!!! Thanks.

Is this really a re-imagining? Or an un-imagining? Since this is what Goku was based off of originally? XD

What? you didn't know SonSon was based off of Sun Wukong, otherwise known as the Monkey King?

SonSon or Sun Wukong aren't goku!!!

don't say it is your vision of goku.. when it is just a remake of another character!

Taken from [link]
Son Goku (孫 悟空, Son Gokū?, addressed only as Goku in most English adaptations) is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama. He first appears in the manga chapter Bulma and Son Goku (ブルマと孫悟空, Buruma to Son Gokū?) first published in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on December 3, 1984.[2] He is loosely based on Sun Wukong, a central character in Journey to the West.

So you get what I was doing now?
I was bringing it back to what he was originally Based on.
My Re-imagining of Goku was to bring him back to his source.

I don't know what that means but I've gone almost a day without sleep and your reply made me lulz. If it makes me lulz, I most likely draw it.

sleep deprived sketches do rock.

I think I supposed to say the megaman manga is out

Atleast I think that's what I was supposed to say.
