Well this was a long lasting dream of mine. I have wanted to make an ape piece for some time now, but kept delaying it... I guess i was a little bit scared. I knew he will had to have a really strong character, and a fierce look, almost human, masculine, even sexy. So I've made a sketch, which was lying in my workbench drawer for 3.5 months (did I mentioned I was scared?!).
Finally I set down and began carving. And what do you know? not so scary after all... He's face just keep popping to my eyes as a vision, the strong look I've wanted just started to become real.
If it wasn't for the crazy holiday season I've would have finished it in 10 days...
Thank you for supporting me in the process!!
