For this one I replaced the background with a texture. I did this using layers and layer masks in Photoshop, laying the texture under a duplicate of the image and then putting a reveal layer mask on that. I then erased or revealed down the the texture around the monkey and the branch he was sitting on. To make the masking easier and the selection more natural looking, I re-toned the texture to the tones of the natural background which went from a greenish gray to browns.
