Kurt Badge by screwbald Kurt Badge by screwbald
I honestly don't recall the specifics of the conversation which lead to this, since I am fairly certain there was copious amounts of alcohol involved--but back at FurPlanet's party at Texas Furry Fiesta in 2012, I struck up a conversation with a non-furry fellow about how there were very few great ape/chimp "fursonas" out there. This surprised him, and promptly inspired him to "become one."

So, Teiran of FurPlanet and I conspired, and I finished him a chimp badge earlier this year, in time for Texas Furry Fiesta 2013.

Anyhow, I had a lot of fun working on this badge, since I really like chimps, and never have an excuse to draw them!

That's true, I never noticed that but primates aren't that popular as fursonas. I guess because they are so close to use in some ways, I don't know. But it seems a shame, this chimp looks like someone I'd hang out with, hes awesome.

Then again, I love jaguars, you'd think there'd be a lot of us, but not really. When it comes to big cats, it's all lions this and leopards that.

Hehee, this is really cool! I can tell you were very precise, and I like your use of texture around the face! I wish I was that good with traditional, but I always screw up :P

Because of movies that i shall not name, i feel a strong urge to apply a British accent to this primate.

I really don't know why you don't do more primates. This is really good! I've had the same conversation you described about with my boyfriend.
