Gran'pa Kong!

My favourite part of him is the neck, actually...

Maybe a matte finish would better suit him. Some real nice creases on this guy. The texture of that nose really bothers me, and also seems to contrast awkwardly with its smoothed-out bridge. That stuff distracts me from the groovy qualities of the lower lip and chin.

Something that I really appreciate about your models is that you don't much seem to mirror anything but the most basic of forms, and that you value subtle variation. This rewards the viewer for journeying, and better-informs us by offering comparison of like structures and events. When I remember your scorpion, it was three tiny little bumps on a leg segment that were like some intimate treasure left for those who took the time to stroll. With this guy I keep arriving at the beanbag meat of his nose, and I sit there wondering if there are subtleties of form and texture lost in the noise of those highlights.

Love that neck.

Looks great overall, though... My crits are for things that'd easily be tweaked. Are you going to give it any further work, or can you push a button and change the look of the material?

I feel like his neighbor's not home, but their windows are open and those dogs just won't stop barking. :)

Really great work.
the balance you found between human and gorilla characteristics is spot on.
I actually like the subtle "gloss" since Gorillas have somewhat shiny face meat.

The detail is unquestionably believable. It really feels "alive".
the only thing that might spark a little more life into him is being able to see his eyes more,
But just enough to see their depth, i know the brow is meant to cast a heavy shadow.
Well done!
