I have finely finished my drawing of the maman and baby gorilla, if you can give me your critics so I can improve it please do.  Your comments are always appreciated.

Danielle this is beautiful you have captured the expression in the mother beautifully, my only comment would be, it could be a bit darker? but maybe the scanner or photo has made it appear lighter?  still an excellent rendition you should be proud very proud :yippee:

 :thankyou: Doina for the advice, I though so too but I keept on adding darker tones, and I am starting to be afraid.  Maybe I will add more tonal later on once I can see straight. O0 :thankyou:

 :thankyou:  So much Doina for your comments.

Danielle...you have captured the whole feeling of the picture. It's really wonderful.  Darker would be better, I think, but.....you go with your gut feeling.  If you aren't comfortable...don't do it!  LOL
It's a terrific reproduction.  Great job!     :flowers:

 :thankyou: Patricia  for all your encouragements.  I may have to darken the whole drawing as per PB family and my son's advice.
