Horatio was inspired by the drive to attempt to create a realistic looking gorilla. At first I did try to paint hair but soon realised I was fighting with the smooth curves and unnatural surface, so I decided I had to change the surface itself. Using specialist pastes from the USA I applied resin texture to the surface and shape it in to hair. This is then painted in fur colour and built up several times if required until the gorilla looks hairy.
