Tips For Coloring Ape
What colors should I use for an ape coloring page?
Most species of apes, including gorillas and chimpanzees, are primarily black or very dark brown, though the orangutan is reddish-brown. You might also incorporate lighter shades of brown or gray for highlights or aging. Apes’ faces can sometimes have more color variation including pinks, browns, and blacks, and their eyes are often brown or hazel.
How can I add more detail and realism to my ape coloring?
To add more detail and realistic touch to your ape coloring, try to incorporate the texture of their fur by using pencil strokes that follow the direction the fur would grow in. Most apes also have defined facial expressions, so paying close attention to the details of the face, like eyes and mouth lines, can help make your coloring more authentic.
Are there any special features I should focus on when coloring an ape?
Absolutely, apes have several distinct features. Their bodies are covered in fur except for parts of their faces and sometimes their hands and feet. They often have pronounced brow ridges and broad noses. Some species also have unique features, like the orange hair of orangutans or the sagittal crest (the ridge of bone running lengthwise along the midline of the top of the skull) in male gorillas.
Can you provide some interesting facts about apes that I could incorporate into my art?
Yes, there are many interesting aspects to ape life. Many species, such as the gorilla, live in complex social groups. Others, like the orangutan, are more solitary. Apes are known for their use of tools and problem-solving abilities, a characteristic you might want to include in a dynamic coloring page. They are also found in diverse environments, from African savannahs to Asian rainforests, showcasing a variety of scenery.
