Fine art illustration of a Common Eland (Taurotragus oryx.) The illustration is available in black and white or color for immediate download.
The Common Eland was completed on 8.26.2012. While the African animals – especially the ungulates like the eland – don’t sell very well I still enjoy creating them and adding them to the image library. I plan to create a collage of various animals of the African Savannah. I was considering drawing a water buffalo instead, but ended up drawing the eland instead for a few different reasons. The drawing is based on a photo by Amanda Pippin.
