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.
