Fine art illustration of an American Pine Marten (Martes americana.) The illustration is available in black and white or color for immediate download.
The American Pine Marten was completed on 6.4.2013. It took me a few days, maybe a week to work up the energy to draw the Pine Marten. The reason being is that the animal is, obviously, covered in dark fur, which when you are rendering in stipple, means a LOT of little dots. But in the end it didn’t take me as long as I thought it would, and I enjoyed the drawing, despite the logistical challenges. The illustration is based on a photo by Gordon Linton.
