After the first set-up
I started with the eyes.
Most important part of the 
human body!
If the eyes are not ready.
I starting over till I think
they are OK now.
With small dots I go on with 
the face.
In a later stage I will get 
everything together in one 
Now I have first get the
real expression on the face.

The face get his final look.
Its a matter of placing
points, points and points!
It's growing!
The man get his final look.

His hair is now done.
This weekend I will work 
on the clothing.

This weekend I make the 
most of the clothing.
OK the man is finished.
Tomorrow I begin with 
the ape first in pastel.
With pastel I make the first
colors of the ape.
I make more details in
the face of the ape.
With color pencils and pen
I make more details and
There he is "the ape man"
Complete and in his full glory.
I hope you enjoyed this trip into the birth 
of the ape man drawing.
