Fine art illustration of a Galapagos Giant Tortoise (Chelonoidis niger.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
A Galapagos Tortoise was one of my earliest animal subjects (done in Germany in 1999) but seeing as I’ve improved since then I decided to redraw this impressive reptile. As with all tortoises the ink drawing was pretty straightforward, but the color version was more difficult but I think it turned out fine – certainly much stronger than the original. The drawing is based on a photo by Eddie Anderson.
