Colobus Monkey finished ( for now)


Ive added another branch to balance the drawing, and at the moment I dont want to add any more to this, I think more branches would clutter the background, and shading it would make a mess, I may come back to this in the near future though.

Sometimes simple is better. I like it just as it is. If it gets too busy, your eye will not focus on your monkey. Keep up the good work.

Hi Judy many thanks for your comments, I agree with you, I dont want the background to dominate the monkey, so I will just leave alone for now.

I like it as it is too! It's very fine work, I don't know how you get the darks so dark, it's super!

Thanks Felicity, Thanks for your comments, the softest pencil I use is a 2B, I think I do tend to put a few layers down to get the darks, and then lift for the high lights with blue tack.
