Elephants (A Work-In-Progress)

                                   Colored pencil, black paper.

 Meant to be a Father's Day gift, but(like most projects I start) has taken longer than expected to finish.  Though unfinished, Dad was very pleased when he saw it. It's been very nice, actually, being able to ask him(and other people) what he likes about it or what he thinks needs some adjusting.

Indian Python

Colored pencil.
This is a large non-venomous species of python found in tropical and subtropical regions of Southern and Southeast Asia.  Their record length is nearly 4.6 metres (15 ft) and weighing 52 kilograms(115 lb).  These snakes are endangered because they are often killed for their beautiful skin.

Bali Starling

Colored pencil on black paper. (In real life, the blue around the eyes is more like ultramarine. I was looking at an older photo when I drew this.)

These gorgeous birds are currently classified as Critically endangered. Possibly extinct in the wild, it would be a shame for them to disappear forever.

Mindoro Stripe-Faced Fruit Bat

Colored pencil on purple paper.

This unique species of flying fox was discovered in the Philippines in 2006.  Due to deforestation of forests on Mindoro( as well as being hunted for food by the locals) this species may be threatened with extinction.


Colored pencil on paper.

Bongo antelopes are found in dense tropical jungles in Africa. They are currently classified a "Near Threatened" due to poaching and human pressure on their habitat.
