WIP...Gorilla close Up

Hi All

I haven't been around for a while...been pretty slack with the drawing thing, but finally knuckled down and got one going.
This is A2 in size, on 200gsm paper...and so far have used pencils ranging from 3B to 2H.
Enjoying all the contours, although it is quite time consuming.
Let me know what you all think, and where I can improve ;o)

Re: WIP...Gorilla close Up

Thank you for the compliments Guys!! Its really what keeps me going.
Here's an update...

This mouth/lips was quite difficult to draw, eventhough it isn't even done yet...and the worst is yet to come I think...fine hairs and skin textures.
Not sure how many hours I've put in this yet, but to guess I would say between 15 and 20 hours.

Re: WIP...Gorilla close Up

Sorry it's going so slowly Guys, but just been too busy to do much drawing...I have added a bit more though, and i've put in the reference picture, so you can see what it will hopefully look like...



Reference...


I am considering excluding the lower section of the drawing ie. the arm, as I feel it just diverts the attention off the focal point - the face/eyes.
what do you all think?

Re: WIP...Gorilla close Up

I think it's up to you what you include,on a personal note,I would add as much to it as the paper size depicted...you owe it to the Gorilla :D
It wouldn't have to be hair for hair,just good filler.
Have a look at my Mel Gibson on my dA account...very similar :D
