I made this for a friend’s son for his birthday.
I played around with the face style and wanted to try something different.
I used pictures of an astronaut monkey and a Justin Bieber that Dylan Gelinas had made as references and sources for ideas for how to approach it. I found them on his Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Slightly-Twisted-Balloons/133645573385261?fref=ts.
They were great inspiration. The Bieber gave me inspiration for how to approach the body and the monkey gave me inspiration for how to play around with the face more. I want to replicate that monkey astronaut of his sometime,lol.
Here are pictures of what I came up with as a result. Everyone loved it. Yea!
