Gorilla Progress Picture

A miniature exhibition is coming up so I started this gorilla portrait for it. The piece is 5"x7" and since I'm not used to working so small, I decided to put down fragments of actual photos of gorillas to aide me in the composition of this piece. You can see I haven't quite collaged every spot, but I'm getting there.

I'm realizing I've really been slacking on the posts in October. Let's hope November will be better.
