A.O.T.D. (Animal of the Day) Gorilla

With DNA 98-99%, gorillas are amongst the primates most closely related to us. Pretty impressive. I get a kick out of their name which is derived from the greek word Gorillai, which translates as a "tribe of hairy women". Good times!
I decided to just go with a sketch this time, since I liked the way it was going. I really tried to emphasize that upper arm mass they have.

Thats very cool! I totally was thinking the idea of drawing every single animal from A to Z... but dangitt, never got around to doing so. Not to late tho, and by seeing others do things like this, I am inspired. :) Great style! KUTGW
