Sketch #8 - Monkey King Study



Obviously, monkeys will continue to feature on my sketch blog. A few months ago, I went to the National Zoo in D.C. with my fiance and her sister. We tried to see Tai Shan, but we couldn't get in. So we walked around. In the House of Small Mammals, I saw a number of golden lion tamarins. Instantly, I thought of the Monkey King! So I want to develop my own version of the mystical hero. This is my first study. Looks a bit more like a dark-faced lion. But it's a start.

wow. If I can draw like you, I would happy like Monkey King when he's fighting with the demons. The detail is what I lack.
