Big Guy


What a magnificent guy....yes white gel pens on black are lovely to use like the subtle colour.

Good big guy!

Very effective, and I like the little use of yellow/gold.

This is really effective. You’ve definitely captured his character!

Sylvia, Heather , Tessa and Spencer many thank for the kind comments.

Such an effective use of the medium Paul. Love the textures you have created and his expression.

You've captured the calm disposition and intelligence of the species so well, Paul.

Thank you Fiona , Michale and Seok for taking the time to look and comment.

Great drawing Paul.

Great use of media Dixie. Such an expression too!

Good one Paul, like his eyes.

Thank you Val , sad eyes I think ?.

A4 gel pen and pastel of a silver back gorilla, such beautiful creatures that can be so gentle. I do like using the white gel pen on black paper.
