I love monkeys! Unfortunately, they are also one of the few animals I don't draw because I have a hard time positioning the body. Here goes...
My muse is the orangutan:
Drawing blind with one or two peeks:
Drawing eyes, noses and shapes:
Inking my orangutan:
I like my little guy. Happy how the positioning and hair movement turned out. Initially I was going to draw an outline of him with no hair but after watching the yak video, thought that using a brush pen to create hair would add more texture and liveliness.
Added the monkey rings to have a little fun in the illustration.
Thanks for the class! Heading to the watercolor class to add a little color. :)
