Fine art illustration of a Kaiser’s Spotted Newt (Neurergus kaiseri.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Kaiser’s Spotted Newt was completed on 12.26.2014. I have over the last few years found a new method to drive my creativity in selecting species to illustrate. I choose a type of animal and working off images I might already have in the library, I created a series of drawings featuring that animal. It came to me that I only had two newts drawn and that picking some of the more amazing species might make for a nice collage. I researched and learned about this species. Finding a great reference photo on Wikipedia – one that had been released into the public domain by the photographer Dr. R. Bartlett – I created this drawing. I will be adding another 4-5 species before putting the collage together.
