Fine art illustration of a Galapagos Penguin (Spheniscus mendiculus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Galapagos Penguin was completed on 5.26.2012. A few weeks ago, I decided to start a gallery of some of the more notable and characteristic animals of the Galapagos Islands. I figured that gallery wouldn’t be complete without the charming Galapagos Penguin. This drawing is somewhat unusual in that much of the areas of black – which in the stipple style takes a very long time to fill – were created using the clone tool in Photoshop, thereby cutting many hours of time out of the foundational ink drawing. The illustration is based on a photo by Scott Portelli.
