Fine art illustration of a Fossa (Cryptoprocta ferox.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Fossa was completed on 2.26.2015. Recently, I decided to focus on the island of Madagascar and try and completed some illustrations of some of the more unique animals that inhabit that wonderful and amazing place. A few years ago my wife and I went to San Diego and spent my birthday at the zoo. We were taken very much by the Fossa, and since then I’ve been wanting to illustrate one. I studied several photos and came up with this pose. I didn’t want a straight on view, but because the animal is very long it had to conform to the general size and proportions I keep all the drawings in line with.
