This is excellent! You captured extremely well the characteristics of a gorilla. That can't be easy when you start with a square of paper. How many tries did it take to get it right?

Thank you Jen! It took me quite a while to get the proportions like this. I did fold at least 30 to 40 gorillas till I was satisfied. The choice in paper was also quite important, especially for the facial features.

Well it all worked out excellently. I see what you mean for the paper on the face - you needed to get the texture right. Well done :clap:
