 I did this piece this morning for a person on the GMC who asked for a 'sinister ape.  Was good practice for me I think. And I've never had a reason to draw an ape before. A friend just told me it looks a bit like the apes in the music video for 'Clint Eastwood' by Gorillaz. Figured I'd post it here since I ain't had much to contribute to this forum lately. It's pretty much finished and while there are a couple of slight niggles I find, I'm done with it.

Really awesome work, and i love the fact that there is no complex shading, so this way it looks very cartoonish..

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/4/2007 13:08
superb ... great char...

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 4/25/2007 09:14
Thanks for notifying me of that.  It is more certainly an edit as I can clearly see the exact same bits and pieces still left intact in places.

This is awesome. Looks like someone decided to do an edit of this thing on Deviant Art... or maybe they just copied the idea, I can't tell.... Someone else seems to have noticed already, because a link to this page is in the comments.

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 8/25/2006 01:08
Funny you should say that... some mobile phone game company thought so too... and seem to have just taken it without asking...

Necky (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/24/2006 15:55
This is AMAZING!!! What a great a game sprite this would make! Love it! One for the favs me thinks :)

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 8/18/2006 17:09
'If you did that' 

What do you mean by that?

Schnauzer (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 8/18/2006 16:37
If you did that... congratulations!

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 8/6/2006 15:35
Cripes, this thing still getting comments.  And is currently the avatar of 18 users?

Friend of mine printed a recolored version of it on a t-shirt a while back that he wears to the gym sometimes...

2dgamers (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/6/2006 14:18
This is a GREAT cartoon rendition of a gorilla! *set it as my avatar* 

MichaS (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/9/2006 02:17
It looks like from Gorillaz.  I like it.

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 11/10/2005 04:26
Looks like Donkey Kong after somebody stole his banana!

breathingsand (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 10/25/2005 05:35
i like the exspresion on the monkey's face

lase_s5 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/16/2005 14:18
thats excellent, pure style.

PandaPlanet (Level 2 Stalker) @ 10/8/2005 00:18
I also thought it looked like a Gorillaz ape, I bet it's the eyes and the funky hair :p
A very good piece I say, great job!

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 8/24/2005 03:13
 That Ape sure would cream DK in an 1 on 1 fight ;) The color-shades are very well selected,  and the overall look and feel add the rest to the 'evil gorilla" look. Would love to see him animated!

truth (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/15/2005 07:25
That's great, :-) would make a good video game character

mykel (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/10/2005 22:29
 Looks great!

Darin La' Bitchion (Level 1 Private) @ 6/1/2005 19:57
this is amazing, great work.

TakeOut (Level 2 Yellow Belt) @ 5/31/2005 16:32
 Reminds me of one of the Donkey Kong characters from Donkey Kong Jungle Beat.
I really like the coloring. :3

Mull77 (Level 1 Hired Gun) @ 5/27/2005 08:55
Great expression and i love the way you gave the impression of hair with just a couple of pixels sticking out. 

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 5/27/2005 04:28
Wow, very nice. I like it a lot

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 5/26/2005 22:48
