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. (
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)
well, this new version is amazing. im a bit of a fan of the Monkey King from legend, being born in the year of the monkey; monkeys are cool; etc. i really like your take on the ideal of the Monkey King. oh, and the old version was not so bad.... kind of cute in a mischievous sort of way.
