Monkey Steals the Fruit process

Here are some process shots of one of my recent drawings.  In the sketch, I was trying to visually connect the monkeys, not worrying too much about what they would look like.  I had done a sketch for a client of a panther a few months ago which we didn't end up using.  I liked the pose, though, and trotted it out, with some modifications for this first drawing of the fruit monkey.


Flatting the colors for the monkeys.
