I call it mental illness because of the way it stares... rage? insanity?... no it's just coincidence! The monkeys eyes are completely black! What you can see as blue is the sky.... and black (that seems to be staring at you) is just a building behind me in the zoo.

Still flat acryllic, just done slightly different.

In PS, poster edges and cutout on a duplicate layer and erased through the eyes. Adjusted saturation/color saved. Then, in GIMP, bumpmap.
