Monkey King_ COLOR by tombancroft Monkey King_ COLOR by tombancroft
This is the final Piece of the finished art for the MONKEY KING project I have been picking at. It's an illustration for a book that is going to be published in China with 78 different illustrators from all over the world doing their version of the Monkey King story. This is a detail from my final, two page spread image. I'm not showing the whole thing because the book hasn't been printed and I'm planning on using a lot of the development artwork for my next book. Two birds, one project baby!

Oh, I designed it, drew it and inked it, but my good friend and former Disney background painter, Chuck Vollmer, painted it digitally. Awesome work Chucky!

Kinda reminds me of Monkey Khan from the Archie Sonic the hedgehog issues. The Monkey king book must've been released in China for a few years hasn't it?

Wow, it's pretty cool to have a someone who used to work for Disney paint your work digitally. Came out so freaking nice, too. I can never get enough of "Journey to the West". :D
