The Monkey King by monikapalosz The Monkey King by monikapalosz
I must say i only finished this in a reasonable amount of time, because of ImagineFX, haha. I was like 'what am I going to give them?', opened canvas in panic and drew this.
But i've no idea what they're going to choose in the end orz.
Anywho, I enjoyed drawing this immensely :)

...the Monkey King returns, calling his army! Gonna make a comback this time!
I already drew him, ages ago, he changed a lot XD ending up as a villain in one of my stories.
(I remember being proud of myself for drawing in that incredible amount of detail o.O Haha, what detail........orz; )

I was really fighting myself not to delete that background, I'm not really comfortable with this kind of stuff. I prefer clear, logical details!!

The Monkey King by =saharaam. An exquisite character design and very professionally rendered. I love the muted color scheme and the details on the face. ( Featured by alicexz )

This is so nostalgic. I remember back a few years ago, I used to watch a movie called "The Monkey King". XD

I like the overall muddy look of this piece. It certainly gives it a very neutral feel, which in turn makes the reds appear more saturated. Very beautiful work.

This new version is AMAZING... but I liked the old one better. I loved his human-look better, even if he was undressing, which my girlfriend like but not me LOL

You have gone so far in such a short space of time!! I wanted to let you know that you are my new favourite artist since I saw you in IFX I had to find you on here and watch you (that sounded creeeepy)
your art is exactly what I wanted to do, the colour style and painting technique is beautiful. And you use SAI which is great. (most of the artists I love are old-school and use PS) Would you consider doing a video process of one of your pieces? I would love to study your technique. Or perhaps a few WIP shots? especially of this piece (its my favourite)

Anyway thanks and keep up the outstanding work.

Red.

i'm not sure if i'll be able to record a process, but a couple of WIPs sounds like a nice idea. Thank you so much, i'm very happy that you like my work!! ;^;

Do I have to tell you that you've improved like hell? Nah, you probably know that by yourself.

Amazing work!! : D
