Sinister Monkey?

I just couldn’t resist sketching this guy

So, one of the blogs I follow posted a photo of this monkey with a subtle, yet unusual, expression recently.

The monkey’s expression had a slight “I’m going to take over the world” look and I knew I wanted to capture his expression in a sketch.  So, I reached out to the photographer and asked permission to use his photo as a reference for this sketch.  He was very willing to give me permission, and I was very appreciative of his generosity.

The photographer that “got the shot” is Rabirius.  He is a digital artist and photographer.  He is certainly talented and I simply insist that you pay his site a visit, you won’t be disappointed.  Click here to view the original photo.

This sketch was created on Strathmore Toned Tan paper using 2H, HB, 4B, 6B, & a white colored pencil.  I also used a bit of charcoal powder.
