 A spinning variety of my monkey, meant to help with 3D modelling efforts.

 You have some good points. Perhaps I should revisit this as it is actually a bit old and I have done a fair bit of life drawing practice since then, it could well end up much better on a second go round.

I just had a look at the other monkey drawing, but I like that one better.

I think it might be the high shoulders and the long arms that make it look a bit awkward to me. However of course it could just be his pose..
Also his body has too long straight lines (from the chest to his knees) which is also a bit boring. Where are the hips?

 Does your "from the front" criticism apply also to the other monkey drawing this is based on? 

The feet change like that mainly so that they actually look like feet from the front. You are right that, if it were actually an accurate front drawing the feet would be flatter. I may revisit this, as perhaps a dialogue between the drawing and the model. I'd want a model that can be rendered in such a way to very closely replicate the appearance of the original 1-bit image.

From the side it looks awesome! From the front not as great but it might work perfectly for the model.

Why is the feet position different on the two poses?
