A new painting

A new painting, just started. This is an iconic image of the Chinese trickster god the Monkey King. I did something I've not done before -- drawing the image in pencil first before going in with the paint, but I wanted a very iconic, very recognizable image, and so I decided to do that. This is from a traditional Chinese papercut image of the Monkey King, only I have him wearing a pair of Nike shoes.
