'Shady' The Mountain Gorilla

This was the very first animal I drew earlier this year. While I was drawing him, my 7 year old son kept a watchful eye on his progress and affectionally called him 'Shady.' Not sure why, but it stuck and I think it really suits him. Photographer for original work is Craig Sholley-http://www.awf.org/ Thank you for any comments, have a great weekend, Joanne:)
