I've been researching and designing orangutans for a short I'm thinking of doing. I got super inspired from the Orangutans at the LA Zoo, especially Bruno and Berani. I wanted to really animate these orangutans as orangutans and not humans with animal suits on. So, I've been spending a lot of time observing and researching. Though, I stopped in the middle of development (spending time to work on CG animation, which I am throughly enjoying actually). Here is a collage of some of the work I've been doing for it.
