Going for a Heavy Brow

A mountain gorilla has an interesting head shape. They do have a brow area of sorts... it is often lighter than the area around the eyes, so I chose a twisted black/silver thread for this quilting effort. I wanted these brow-like areas to appear somewhwat haphazard, as they would in life, so I was allowed to stitch loosely one hair over another to represent a bad hair day appearance.

Continuing plan of working inside out, now that I have worked upward a bit from the eyes, I will go next to work to the left and right of the nostrils. That will be next post.
