Mother Macaque (Ink Drawing)



Hello Everyone.
Earlier today, I made this wildlife drawing depicting a female macaque climbing on a tree with her young one holding on to her. The macaque are a family of monkeys found mostly in Northern Asia and like humans and several other family of monkeys as well as apes, the care so much for their young ones and provide support for till they grown enough to fend for themselves.

I used a black ball point pen and pelican paper for this drawing.
Here are the steps involved;
Firstly, I drew the outline of both the macaque and her young one holding on to the tree. I also drew their facial features and pattern of fur flow here.

Next, I began shading and adding fur details to the skin of both the mother and her baby.
Finally, I shaded the tree the mother was holding on to until the drawing looked appealing.

Thanks for reading and checking out my drawing. Stay safe and enjoy the rest of your day.

@steemingcurators curate. @firefly2020 makes breathtaking art, I could have chosen any of his pictures because they all make you feel the picture, as in this case the motherly love. But he does not just draw the pictures, he explains his steps and has the huge potential to inspire ohers to draw aswell! I believe that his post is underappreciated consideng the value of the drawing, his explanation and the emotions in this picture.
