Fine art illustration of a Duck-Billed Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Duck-Billed Platypus was completed on 4.26.2011. After a few requests, and my own desire to draw this (and add to my Australian animal image library) finally was able to create this drawing. What a odd animal! A mammal, yet it lays eggs and has a bill like a duck. As this wasn’t enough, the platypus is poisonous! It was a pleasure to draw and I’m happy with the way the fur turned out. The drawing is based on a photo by Mark Jekabsons
