Fine art illustration of a Lion-Tailed Macaque (Macaca silenus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Lion-Tailed Macaque was completed in the summer/fall of 2015. When putting together a collection of animal native to India, I wanted to select a primate that was distinctive and emblematic. I had never drawn a macaque, but knew a little about them. As usual, I struggled with the dark fur but I think the drawing works pretty well. The drawing is based on a photo by Roger Sargeant and was used with permission.
