Monkey King by cheeks-74 Monkey King by cheeks-74
Here's a pin-up I did for a magazine called "72". The issue I drew it for was for their Monkey King tribute. It hasn't come out yet, but I believe it will within the next couple of months.

A wallpaper version:

Hope ya'll digs!

Was the tribute of the magazine particularly aimed at the animated movies done of "Journey to The West"? I see to recall the animation design being alike.

The way you colored your piece draws a nice bridge to those animated features and yet it got it`s own touch :)

=D It's funny that I was just reading this legend and then I come on here and see this adorable rendition of these two characters. Somehow, I feel like I could take on the Monkey King if I saw him in this form though. ^__^

It reminds me a lot of the Monkey/Pig short that was done for the Chinese Summer Olympics by the Tank Girl/Gorillaz folks, and that is not a bad thing! It's like... an adorable version instead, haha.
