Fine art illustration of a Narwhal Whale (Monodon monoceros.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Narwhal Whale was completed on 3.20.2012. Drawing this animal has been on my mind for many years, but how to come at it was a problem. Their anatomy is fairly simple, but the patterns as they relate to the shape of the animal’s form made this kid of a tricky tinting job. Also, getting good reference photos proved challenging, as there are few underwater images of narwhals, and precious few above water. But with the help of my friend Carl Buell (who supplies the sketch that underpins the drawing) I believe I came out with decent representation of this amazing arctic whale.
