Drawing - Pencil On Paper
Although I have never really seen a giant tortoise in the wild (but I hope I will one day!), I can easily say I'm in love with these creatures. My passion for animals has been the key to vast knowledge about them. I spent my childhood studying the nature of animals, some in the wild, others in books only.
The Galapagos Giant Tortoise is a species of tortoise inhabiting the amazing islands of Galapagos. What inspired this picture is not only the giant on it, but the work of another group of concerned individuals trying to save the species from extinction, called Darwin Animal Doctors (www.darwinanimaldoctors.org). My work for DAD has given me the chance to learn about many unique animals and inspired me to create art and express my impressions that way.
I personally love the little tortoise in the down left angle of the drawing. It gives the impression of how big the giant tortoise is and is a nice addition to the composition, making it complete and more attractive.
