Very nice linework! I'm glad you posted him larger so we could see him. I like the face. He looks playful. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif
What is your next project?

Very well done animal..I agree...do another primate.
When I draw I use another piece of clean scrap paper of the same type as I am drawing on to rest my hand on as I move around the drawing. It can also be used to test the tip of a freshly sharpened pencil before going to your sketch, but mostly it emininates the smudging I see in your sketches animal. You should try it...takes a bit of getting used to but you will have a cleaner looking drawing at the end result.

Thanks Darrell for your comments. I am going to try using paper under my hand when I`m drawing to get rid of the smudges. I am going to do some sort of primate again, maybe a chimpanzee,gorilla or another orangutan. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/eek.gif

Love this picture, and will look forward to you showing us some other primates..one of my favourite animals.

Take care

PS I tend to try and use the paper under my hand now, but can be a bit tricky with charcoal if you move it around. If all else fails, get out the kneadable putty eraser when you've finished and just tidy up the smudges.

Thanks Bevl for your comments. I am not sure what my next project will be, maybe another primate. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/cool.gif
