This illustration was inspired by the Thai version of the Indian Ramayana. By the ancient Siamese "Thais" it is called Ramakien. Hanuman is the monkey god in the Ramayana epic. I wanted to take ancient concepts and illustrations and make my version as realistic as possible.
When I see something live action with hanuman, I see the actor being very monkey-like and always looking for something over the horizon. I just wanted to add that little bit in the illustraion because its such an iconic pose.
