I really really love this piece. Not because he's a chimpanzee but because he's a mobster. And not just any mobster but THE mob from the 30's. I love that hes wearing a pinstriped suit with a fedora! And that he's literaly contemplating on using his Thompson.
But I would like to get your permission to use your piece as a reference? I will credit you accordingly. I have a character that I would like to incorporate wearing a suit but he's going to be playing a trumpet and not holding a gun.
Because my Drawing final is specific to an animal playing an insturment. I've been using real animals to draw my stuff. But I like this piece specifically because it has several of my particular interests within it. 1. Old School Mobsters 2. A chimp.
