:wave: Thank you so much Li for the wonderful photos. Chose this ref as I thought it was a good subject to use colored pencil, boy did I take on a detailers' "delight or dilemma" LOL. This took about 9 hrs. off and on since Saturday. The leaves were driving me bonkers. Wished I had other greens for them as I feel they are a bit bright. Loved doing the monkey, he seemed easy enough once I got what I call the phantom strokes done in the fur. These are the strokes that you put in with a tool so that color does not transfer to these areas. It is done on 11x14 Strathmore Vellum with Derwent Drawing and ColorSoft pencils. I will come back later folks to give comments on your works.

Beautiful job on this little guy and I like the bright leaves, plan to lighten mine up with some yellow to make it look sunnier.
