X-mas for Giant Gorilla

Monday, January 13th, 2014

So, today is January 13 and I just now finished the illustration for my wife’s X-mas card. I can’t explain why it took so long to finish, I guess time just got away from me. It’s been doing that a lot lately, although maybe this time it’s because I had to do more prospective drawing. Anyway, here it is:



I’m pretty happy with how it came out, I suppose. I just wish it didn’t take me so long. I probably need to start working on the illustration for Valentine’s Day if I ever hope to finish on time.

Giant Gorilla Valentine

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Here is the Valentine’s Day card I made for my wife this year.

Some of you may be wondering why I didn’t draw the giant gorilla’s junk. Initially, I just didn’t think about it. I’ve drawn many, many apes, looking at many, many sources for reference and never have I actually taken notice of what a gorilla’s junk looks like. Somehow the junk must have always been obscured by the ape’s position or whatever, and I apparently didn’t need that information for whatever ape pose I was drawing. In THIS drawing, however, the lack of gorilla junk is pretty noticeable. I even had a chance to cover that area with clouds, but for whatever reason, I just didn’t realize until after I was finished. I suppose I could still go back into it and either add gorilla junk or move that one cloud slightly lower, but I’m just too lazy. Also, as always, I need to stop myself now, or I could keep working on the same drawing forever. Perhaps the next time I draw a gorilla (which will definitely be some time this year) I will add the junk. We’ll just have to wait and see. Perhaps the next gorilla I draw will be wearing pants.
