Monkey King meets Buddha

Back in the studio after being away for 2 days. I hadn't planned out what I was doing with this image (other than having the Monkey King wear Nike shoes and fly through the sky). Here I've decided to use the fable of the Monkey King's encounter with Buddha. The Monkey King is very boastful and vain; one day, he met up with Buddha and was telling Buddha about his tremendous powers, how far he could run, how quickly he could fly, etc. Buddha wagered him (would Buddha really gamble?) that however far he could run or fly, he would never escape Buddha's palm. (To be continued...)
