The all-powerful hero Monkey King, recently appeared on Chinese screen and makes a great flutter in China movie market. It says 'Monkey King' Brings Hope to Chinese Animation Industry. Really like 'a hero comes back from the rock'.

This is a course of painting. Due to the sufficient complex details, I made this model by SLA printer. If your don't own a SLA printer yet, I suggest the resolution on your printer shouldn't be larger more than 0.1mm, and scale the size to as large as possible for best results.
