The transfer to pen and ink led to multiple changes here- especially with the 4 hands that Sun Wukong has.
Very complex anatomy and angles on a monkey that is “sort of” human… a challenging project indeed.
This turned out with the low light extreme lights and darks looks that I intended from the pencils. I always have thought the low light night vision images of soldiers were very dramatic, and I wanted to capture that here. The wrecked building silhouette was something I experimented with in the M.D. Geist art I did here a few months ago. This building outline is more of an integral part of the composition on this piece and this time I went farther with that process than I did on the M.D. Geist image. I think the building outlines in solid black technique is a nice new addition to my inking style.
