Ring Tailed Lemur

Its starting to get cold up in Minnesota so we decided to warm up by drawing some very warm primates, Ring Tailed Lemurs.

Ring Tailed Lemur Lesson:
The Ring-tailed Lemur is a large strepsirrhine primate and the most recognized lemur due to its long, black and white ringed tail. Like all lemurs it is endemic to the island of Madagascar. The Ring-tailed Lemur is highly social, living in groups of up to 30 individuals. It is also female dominant, a trait common among lemurs. For this lesson we use wildlife artist Sally Michel painting, working on proportion, shape and color to create a lemur in its natural habitat.
Step# 1: Start with the a circle for the lemurs head, then add the eyes, mouth and ears.
Step #2: Attach a oval for the body and connect the front legs and then the back legs. Connect the long black and white tail.
Step #3: Now draw a large branch for your lemur to walking on.
Step #4: Time to add your jungle details like foliage, snakes, birds and more. Then use your choice of watercolor pencils, pastel chalk, ect. to finish the project
