Hi again, friends!
This time I have modeled a colourful African monkey: the Temminck's red colobus, Piliocolobus (badius) temminckii, in their rainforest coat. Primates are a challenge, due to their high expressivity and human-like gestures, and I think that they require a lot of time looking at their photographs to translate enough naturalness. Well, let's practice...!

What lovely, vibrant colours these monkeys have.
Your little sculpt turned out excellent. It looks very natural in that pose.
Will you make some kind of tree/trunk/branch for it to sit on?
That beautiful tail has to be shown off somehow. Cool

That's again another fabulous work! cheers 1:11 is a quite unusual scale, why not the classic 1:12? monkey Well, it is almost the same and the important is all the talent in a small figure of a very interesting animal. Very Happy

Thank you very much, Andreas, Susanne, Simone, Rogério (and MiniZoo).
With regard to the supporting trunk, it is a possibility, although to be honest I make these models mainly for practice (I don´t have many space in my bookshelves...), and hopefully 'give one's all' on a possible commission or a present for a friend or a relative (including any required base).
And the unusual scale is merely due to the fact that, in this case, I started to model the figure on a size I felt comfortable, and once finished... I calculated the resulted scale!
Here I show you another (bad) photo to focus on the face, with the very particular and difficult proportions and reliefs typical of this species.

Beautiful face! monkey I think when we start thinking in a specific scale, it turns all the work very limited to it. Once you start and adjust some proportions, the original wanted scale needs often to be revised. So, I think it was good option to start the work without thinking in it and just calculating it later. A 1:11 scale works nicely for a large specimen in 1:12 scale, I guess. You're doing a very good job! Very Happy
