As for the DoctNiks review, well... http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/draw/a158c420717e353e7930fac45396fb6b at least he is honest indeed.
The only tiny error I can see that I would bother mentioning is the shading on his feet from his ankles doesn't reflect the fur that is there on them. Otherwise a superb piece without even being familiar with the subject matter, a great homage to the original.
Aww thanks! Those shadows weren't my number 1 concern, I felt they could be simplified and still work.
This is a decent piece, perhaps it could be someone's pp but other then that, this is just a doodle worth little more than a drawing on a wall. There are many tiny errors that disappoint an investigative eye. To start with, the monkeys top row teeth have smaller teeth between them and then theirs the strange object between left arm and hip. The things purpose evades me, it's location is also unclear, it appears that it was between arm and side, but just as easily could've been launched from the arm. I don't see another on his other arm so I assume the latter. Next we examine the odd backpack, it seems very strange and oddly packed, and to be honest I think you could've done without it. In closing, you obviously have the skill but you don't explain the odd existence of this monkey and why it carries a laser beam and sleeping bag.
It sounds like most of your questions can be answered by doing a search for the character. As for the teeth maybe I shouldn't have left them like that, but I thought nobody would notice.
