here's a little something i did a couple of days ago. i'd sketched this ape character a few months back and found it the other day and decided to give it a little bit of life (aren't second chances nice?)
the original sketch
with a simple background shape finish
i wanted to try something different and decided to avoid line work as much as possible and tried to use shape and color to show form and change in planes. i'm happy with how it came out.
special shout out to my dear maddie for being my belly button ring model :p
