Fine art illustration of a Malayan Tapir (Acrocodia indica.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Malayan Tapir was completed on 8.22,2012. For the most part, I rarely go back and completely re-do an illustration. In the case of the Malayan Tapir, however, the original really was quite bad. I’ve developed a few new techniques that allow me to complete a drawing like this in less time, while allowing me to work with a larger original which results in a stronger drawing when completed. It really feels good to replace one of the weakest drawings in the image library with a much stronger one. The drawing is based on a photo by Ellen van Yperen.
