Monkey King!

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.



Also I figured you might be interested to see that I drew them separate. For some reason I LOVE drawing the whole body as it's own entity. I rough it all out together, and then I clean each element separate... I like to show the paper who's it's daddy. hahaha

A couple of peeps asked for a larger images, so I hope this version is big enough for your monitors.

Hope ya'll digs!
