Monkeys from trees

Apes falling down from a tree, attacking humans.

Hi there,
I decided that maybe I should just share the drawings I made this week. So I am working on re-inking Joseph Clement Coll's illustrations which he made for the story “The Lost World.” The originals were scans from newspaper prints, and while I am thankful they still exist, I found them hard to read. So I decided to re-ink them. I learned so much in the process!

In both, I tried to only suggest the background, for clarity. The originals had better-defined backgrounds, but there was not much contrast between the foreground and the background. I'm not sure if this was the right approach, I might have been able to come up with better compositions.

I'm still trying to figure out the newsletter thing. What do you think, is it better if I just shut up and share the art I make every week?

Yours truly,
