I'm am shocked and dismayed no one has made the obvious observation...

So you'd say...he's a Sea Monkey? *snickers* Either way, amazing work on this...the colors are so vivid and the composition balanced...awesome man :D

Well, that's a unique concept, a fish monkey. I don't think I would have ever thought of a fish monkey.

This looks really nice. I like how the colours look cartoony, yet not at the same time.

Is it strange that I knew it was probably something related to Hanuman?
:XD: I like to think not, since my father is a devotee of Krishna, therefore I'm vaugely familar with the Ramayana.
Or maybe my mind just associated the way he was dressed with Hanuman.

Anyway! I like your design of Matchanu, and I like the pose you have him in. :D

yep!that's right!
but of course influenced by native culture...so in result
rangda and barong appeared together with hanuman in native folklore... ^^;
hanuman usually appeared in "Pewayangan" or Wayang show in java region
