Never have I drawn a piece where it feels the animal is looking straight back at me out of the paper. Gorillas have very humanist expressions and mannerisms meaning it was vital to draw the look of contemplation correctly. This was and is still my most challenging piece to date.
This original piece was drawn using Derwent Graphite Pencils on 285gsm acid free paper.
