Fine art illustration of a West Indian Ocean Coelacanth (Latimeria chalumnae.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The West Indian Ocean Coelacanth was completed on 1.4.2013. As I approach 1000 animal drawings (I’m currently on about 750) I’m taking more and freedoms as to the species I draw. I’ve known about the Coelacanth for many years, how it was “discovered” off the coast of Africa when it was thought to have gone extinct millions of years ago. A recent video posted by National Geographic inspired me to draw one. The inking took about three days and the digital tinting another one. I’m pretty happy with the results.
