Avatar: Journey to the West by bobangeba Avatar: Journey to the West by bobangeba
I had this idea in my head for a while and I just had to draw it: Gaang as characters from the Chinese epic Journey to the West.

For those who aren't familiar with the story, it's about an arrogant monkey who needs to accompany a monk to India to retrieve the original Buddhist scriptures and redeem himself. Along the way, he and the monk meet a womanizing pig and an exiled general from Heaven, and they all travel west together.

Scrapping later. Photoshop CS, 1.5 hours.

I think pig IS the exiled general. Friar Sand was just a curtain-raiser or something.

:rofl: Sokka as the monk and Zuko as the horse/dragon prince is PRICELESS.

Gotta love journey to the west cameos. XD I saw the Zuko similarity too! Do I get a cookie? Toph is definitely wise enough to be the Friar Sand of the group (even if she isn't quite that calm or unimportant), and I guess they're all pretty good with their 'roles'. Aang as monkey is a total lol, though.

YES, you get a cookie. :cookie: He's the only one who really has anything to do with his counterpart in this picture. Hahaha. Except maybe Aang and Toph (as you mentioned).
