rhino

"Rhino" 
Original image size 11"X14"

Rhino's are awesome creatures. I am attracted to their complacent attidute due to their strength and muscular build. No one would walk up to a rhino and deliberately pick a fight! That would be biting off more than one could chew. I saw this rhino at the Los Angeles Zoo back in the mid-90's. He carelessly walked about his pen while I snapped my images to use one day as reference for a rhino drawing. The challenge when drawing a rhino is to capture the many textures of his hide. There are many folds to their hide also which makes for an interesting drawing in ink. Hope you like him.
The original was created in all stippling on Plate Bristol Board.
