At this size it's hard to critique it, you could have just slapped textures on a super simple shape and it would have looked the same.
A grey ground plane, black background and a jagged shadow isn't doing you any favors either.
You said you used zbrush, so why not show off the model properly, without textures.
Just a screengrab or bpr render straight out of ZB would be fine.

All that said, it looks more like a human in a chimp suit then a chimp...his posture and proportions aren't very ape like. The anatomy looks questionable too...use more and better refs!
And yes you can animate hair/fur, but if you ask me it's too early to worry about that stuff...the model needs some work first.

I feel uncomfortable when I look at him.. Like I should go hide somewhere. With my gun.

beyond that, ya, his proportions are too human.
Go here and scroll down to the full skeleton comparison picture.. Per the caption, the chimp is the middle one. Hands appear to be down to the knees.

you should either put a backlgiht on it to seperate it from the background, or put it on a white background to add more contrast.

Black on black/dark is hard to see.

Edit: and it looks to me like you have in the makings a pretty nice rogain commercial.
