Fine art illustration of an Indian Gharial (Gavialis gangeticus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Indian Gharial was completed on 3.20.2013. I have been meaning to draw one of these remarkable looking reptiles for many years now. When I decided to create a gallery of animals native to Bangladesh they immediately came to mind. I was sad, however, to learn how few of them are left in the wild – perhaps just a couple hundred if estimates are to be believed. As usual I had a lot of fun rendered the distinctive crocodile hide. The drawing is based on a photo by Mario Pineda.
