First, that quote is from Naked Gun 2 1/2: the Smell of Fear. And I won’t go into the baboon/mandrill debate. I just thought of the quote

I loved the colors on the face and wanted them to be the main focus.

Overall, I’m pretty happy with it, but I may mess around with it again.  What do you think?
