A pin up I did for E.J. Su's "Stone Monkey" comic in the mid 2000s.

Thanks man! Yeah my dad use to tell me some of the fables in the car while waiting for my mom to finish shopping back when I was a kid. It was great to have a chance to draw him.

Not Stone Monkey. He's the Monkey King. He looks awesome. Like he could kick some real butt.

There's so much to LOVE about this design
but honestly...the kicker for me is his face, and the fur around his eyes and brow is just so wicked

and his armor isn't too shabby, I like how its still flexible enough for him to move around in

Sigh, it's been a little sad looking at old work. I use to explore and dig a little (even if it wasn't all that great), I need to get back into it. Thanks for the nice words!

it's ok, I look at my old work and think it's just downright awful...but I was way more productive back then, compared to now

Yeah it's hard keeping up the motivation as you get older. More things to detract you. When you're younger you don't know any better, if you're good or bad. You just are engrossed in the art. I'm envious of the people that can maintain.

Sam, how long does it take for you to create something like this? (I know it's personal, but I'm curious, thank you)

I did this when I was working in video games so I think I spent 2 nights pounding it out (about 8 hours total). I am slow... I still remember scanning it and email it out at like 3 in the morning from work.

Well it's an amazing piece of work, I only wish I had even a fragment of the skill you have as an artist.

Thanks! Seriously it just takes time and dedication. Anyone can draw if they are willing to put in the work.

HAHAHAHAHA! OH good lord No, not at all, he was Black and had an afro and carried a 40oz in a paper bag everywhere. No amount of production stress could take you to that point.
