A colleague did me a favour and I should like to make her a drawing in return. She used to work with gorillas and we always make jokes about gorillas, so I have been sketching gorillas. Their expressions are sometimes incredible human-like, but some of the face features like the nose are so different from humans. And then there is the fur - on the pictures I have found, the gorillas have this amazing shiny fur. It is quite difficult to draw.

  1. Gry - I love the fact that you've used different media to portray these creatures. Two things I'd never thought about - their inside-out noses and shiny fur. You've expertly captured their faces: comic but somehow noble.
