This is a tiny request but it's been driving me crazy ever since I noticed it.


I always thought the monkey in the Giving Tree art was holding a twig, or maybe a stick insect between finger and thumb. It was only looking more closely that I realised it's caused by a tangent between the monkey's fingers and a branch in the background. Now every time I look at the image it leaps out at me.

Could the artwork possibly be tweaked to fix the tangent / clarify the pose? Even adjusting the colouring to push the branch further into the background might do it.

Here are a couple of quick and dirty adjustments to show you what I mean:


Fingers extended to break the tangent.


Branch colours adjusted to recede.


Both adjustments.

It's a tiny thing, but I'm sure others have noticed it and it would only take a minute to fix. Thanks for considering it!

support, it's small and easy to fix if you just add leaves or something but it does bother me a little.

give him a stick to hold, he deserves it after his years of service

Support. This has bothered me for so long! xD Simply adjusting the color would make a huge difference.

the entire thing shold probably be redrawn, considering the art updates old encounters and shops have been getting!

Support, because now I know he isn't holding a stick, and I'm really upset.

Am I the only one who didn't think he was holding a stick? Now that you've mentioned he looks like he's holding a stick you've ruined the way I look at the monkey. Nice job. I think the monkey's art should be changed considering it's pretty outdated.
