Here is my contribution to this week’s Illustration Friday theme, “Primitive”. I sketched it in graphite and used soft pastels for the colors.
There are four kinds of Great Apes: Gorillas, Orangutans, Chimps and Bonobos. Gorillas, Chimps and Bonobos live in Indonesia and spend much of their time alone.
Some scientists think that humans should be considered Great Apes too. Chimps share more genetic material with humans – about 99% – than they do with Gorillas.
