Before Pigsy join Tripitaka's team and got the name Bajie, he lived as a demon.
Zhu Ganglie means "a pig with strong hair"

Your drawing of the pig is the best. Especially after reading part # 19 of Ghostexorcist

I used your image in a scholarly online blog about Journey to the West. I hope you don't mind. I posted a link back to this page. You can see it (#18) here:

Oh wow, what a fantastic take on on BaJie's demon form! I really love the insane details you put into this, particularly on his rake!

I absolutely love how you interpret the nine-pointed rake. It's ornate and still a rake, but it looks much less unwieldy than something like a pitchfork, you know?

Thank you for your comment.
This rake is more like a pitchfork, right? Because it is a transform from an acient Chinese weapon"Tang(镋)"[link]
In some paintings, Marshal Tian Peng's weapon is a tang, so I made this design.
Hope you could understand me:o

No problem. Thanks for the reply!

Not really! A pitchfork would have longer, just slightly curved prongs. I normally see Pigsy wielding one of them in Western interpretations. It looks pretty stupid.

Don't worry; I can understand you perfectly fine.
