The face is my design while the rest of the body is based off a monkey I bought from a home furnishings store.
UPDATE: Step 1. now shows how I used SketchBook Express to make this project.
Step 1: SketchBook Express
I started by taking a picture with my Ipad and then opening it through Autodesk’s free app “SketchBook Express”.
I created a layer and sketched out what I wanted my monkey to look like. Once I was done I removed the original picture layer so all I saw was my sketch.
I printed out the sketch and used that “blue print” to make the project.
Step 2: Cut open a couple bullet shells
Use a pipe cutter to remove the primer end from the shell. Start cutting the shell from the business side with a pair of metal shears. As you cut, use a small hammer to tap the shell further into the shears. This makes it easier to move the cut along the length of the shell.
Open the shell up with pliers. Hammer it flat on a hard surface.
