Monkey Monkey by ChemicalAlia Monkey Monkey by ChemicalAlia
I drew this guy as part of an art trade with :iconpembroke:. Monkey Monkey is a character in his comic strip, Impy and Aevy. I wanted him to have something to stand on, so I took a few extra Monkey King liberties along the way and drew him on a cloud.

Aha! I vaguely remember this guy (or someone like this guy) in a Saturday morning cartoon I randomly flipped to once many years ago. I don't recall the name, though. Maybe it was Monkey King.

Anyway, sweet image, and a really neat background to match! I like how it kind of looks like marble.

It's a name in Chinese which I am a bit rusty with but that sounds about right.

That looks exactly like Monkey Khan from the Archie Sonic comics.

Are you serious? I remember thinking this reminded me a lot of Monkey Khan while I was drawing it, but after seeing so many different variations of the Sun Wukong character, they all start to look very much alike to me!

Well, the circlet and the cloud kinda finished the look off.

Yeah, but those characteristics were adapted from the original literary character to Monkey Khan, and this one as well in Pembroke's case.

I didn't know Monkey Khan was a literary character. I thought the Archie guys just made up a monkey guy.

Heh, yep. I showed the preliminary sketch to my friend, and he was like "Lol, goku!" Look up Sun Wukong on wikipedia sometime if you get a chance, it's pretty crazy how many popular versions there are of him.
