I found out that monkey is nos the appropriate terms – most of the tail-less big “monkeys” that remind us a bit of humans are “apes” And then is has something to do with their shoulder-joints aswell.. And there are exeptions.. I figure that it’ll easier if i just use both tags. I’m really happy with this one!. The eyes could be better though.

The eyes are so good. You really caught his (or her) gestalt.
This is a fantastic portrait of a gorilla, really expressive. I think what you mean about the eyes is they lack a bit of vitality. Some catch lights would do it. A tiny spot of white pigment would do the trick.
I really like the eyes…it certainly shows intelligence and compassion
This is really good – well done -love the eyes
