Fine art illustration of a Sumatran Orangutan (Pongo abelii.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Sumatran Orangutan was completed on 11/15/2008. I originally wanted to draw a female, but when I started doing some research the bizarre shape of the male’s face made for a more interesting drawing. This is the 2nd primate I’ve drawn(the other was a Mountain Gorilla) and I’m still learning how to render fur. Overall I think the drawing is fine, but for some reason the Great Apes are really challenging me and pushing me out of my comfort zone.
