Fine art illustration of an American Crocodile (Crocodylus acutus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The American Crocodile was completed on 1.24.2011. Some time ago, I noticed I had never drawn a large crocodilian (I had completed drawing of alligators however.) So I decided to draw three of the best known; American, Nile and Saltwater Crocs. They are challenging to render, but also a lot of fun too. I had seen American Crocs in the wild in Costa Rica and marveled at their size compared to their smaller relative the alligators I had seen in Florida. The drawing is based on a photo by Charlie Charlton.
