Step 1: Make the Face

I started off by using a cream / flesh tone face paint to make a round heart shape around the face. Then, for the next step, I used a burnt red to close off the edge around the face, created points across the cheekbones.

Step 2: Eyes & Fur

Next, I used a bit of orange over the eyes and also created fur around the burnt red edge on the face. Then, I went back into my burnt red or create a furry effect over and under the eyes.

Step 3: Features

To finish off, I used black for the bottom lip, and added bold effect to the orange fur around the face, as well as over and under the eyes. Then, I added nostril holes, and skin lines, and a little bit of color to the top lip. A white highlight over the eyebrows, skin lines, and tip of the nose completes this awesome monkey face.

Step 4: Monkey Around

Silly and mysterious as it is, this monkey face will leave animal fans screeching for joy!
