Year Of The Monkey Tribal Design by WildSpiritWolf Year Of The Monkey Tribal Design by WildSpiritWolf
This is :iconiayuboy: 's completed commission one of two, this one of a pair of starry tribal Japanese macaques in bamboo with the kanji for "Year of the Monkey."


:bulletred: I do apologize for the obnoxious watermarks but they have been put in place to help cut down on the prolific theft of my artwork as well as to protect the commissioned art that was designed for my clients' use. It is an intensely frustrating thing seeing a design you worked so hard to create being reposted or even sold elsewhere without your knowledge or consent and that does not even begin to cover how my clients feel about it. And that is why the watermarks exist and are going to remain. Any snarky comments regarding them will be marked as spam. :bulletred:


Please do not copy, trace, alter, or redistribute this anywhere in any way, shape, or form!

This design was created specifically for the commissioner's use only. If you would like a design custom created for you, drop me a note or see my FAQ journal entry here: [link] if you need more info.



Lineart: Micron Pen Size 03
Color: Copic Markers

The pop of gorgeous green makes the picture. And matching watermarks! :dummy: They can't say you don't try to make them less of an "eyesore" lol

Monkeys are cute creatures, but they are unpredictable and can be very dangerous. My mom use to work with all kinds of monkeys and apes, and my step-dad still does. It's amazing work that they do. This is really awesome and I love the small amounts of color you add. It gives your art life.

I'm pretty sure the first kanji character does not say "monkey"... But the second one does say "year"! Nice design by the way!

This is the kanji for monkey: [link] But when "Year of the Monkey" is written, it looks like this: [link]

Keep in mind that when a phrase is written, the kanji will sometimes be written differently.

This is truly beautiful :aww:
Annoying though the watermarks are, they help so much! On more than one occasion I have seen traced/stolen work of yours, it must be heart-braking to have such wonderful images snatched from under your palms. If ever I see a stolen work of yours, I'll be sure to report it :heart:

And also let her know via note. dA's is really bad about handling stolen work unless the artist reports it.
