Chimpanzee Sketches by Eurwentala Chimpanzee Sketches by Eurwentala
Marker sketches of common chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes).

Sometimes you need to learn new things really fast, and that's a good thing. I had pretty much never drawn an ape before, when the book publisher I work for suddenly asked one. This is one of the pages I filled when trying to learn how these oddly human creatures work.

How so many people think chimps don't look like humans never ceases to astound me...

Agreed! I used to think chimps are ugly, which is probably because they are just human enough to hit the Uncanny Valley. The more I got to know them, the more I like them. Though they are still scary.

It's said that Homo and Pan shared one common ancestor.  Any idea who that was?

I'm pretty sure it's one of those guys currently throwing stones at volunteers helping refugees in Finland. At least their concept of modern society is some six million years backwards.

Oh well, seriously speaking, the identity and characteristics of the last common ancestor or humans and chimpanzees is the focus of a heated debate which for a great part consists of pure speculation. It would be really interesting to find some reasonably well preserved fossils from that time.
