Fine art illustration of an Eastern Gray Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Eastern Gray Squirrel was completed on 11.18.2011. This was a really tough drawing, and I’m a little disappointed it’s not as good as some of my more recent work. I sometimes struggle with fur, and this is a good example of what can go wrong if the foundational ink drawing isn’t as strong as it could or should be. I believe I was able to salvage the drawing to some extent. But overall I wish it could have been a little stronger. The drawing is based on a photo by Brett Klaproth.
