Drawing a Japanese Macaque, coloring with Pastel sticks and pencils on paper.

The Japanese macaque (/məˈkɑːk/;[2] Macaca fuscata), also known as the snow monkey, is a terrestrial Old World monkey species that is native to Japan. They get their name "snow monkey" because they live in areas where snow covers the ground for months each year – no other nonhuman primate is more northern-living, nor lives in a colder climate.[3][4] Individuals have brown-grey fur, red faces, and short tails. Two subspecies are known.[5]

In Japan, the species is known as Nihonzaru (Nihon 日本 "Japan" + saru 猿 "monkey") to distinguish it from other primates, but the Japanese macaque is very familiar in Japan, so when Japanese people simply say saru, they usually have in mind the Japanese macaque.

Dang, my eyes were almost fooled thinking this was a photograph. Excellent job, and especially the focus blur which adds a nice touch to the photographic impression. :clap:

This is a really great painting. There are so many details in it.
It is a pity that one can not recognize them because of the resolution of the photo.
It is a little better to see in the video.
Well done.
