Barbary Macaque - 5x7 monkey

I finished this one up a few weeks ago now, but have not been around the forum very frequently. Now that a few shows are over, I wanted to hop on and share one of my favorite pieces as of late!
This is done primarily with fiberglass brush and x-acto knife.

Thanks for looking!

I can see why this is one od your favorites, Melissa, I really like it too. The eyes are particularly nice, and so is the depth in the fur. All in all, a really fine job.

Terrific job on the fur - you've really captured the softness and various textures, Melissa!

Exquisitely rendered! I like the really close up view point and the brightness of the piece. Wonderful expression.
