Above, white rhino. Below, Indian rhino. Pen and ink on plate Bristol Board. I really love the smooth texture of this gorgeous 500 series surface. Okay, it's just cotton paper. I love it. I am also experimenting with different pens.
I was not happy with the Indian Rhinoceros drawing I recently completed. It was crude. I decided to draw another one (above) and told my friends I was going to draw it again. My brother, ever the inquisitor:
Him: How do you know this is from India?
Me: I did not say it is from India. It is the Indian rhino species - Rhinoceros unicornis. It is primarily found in India's Assam region and also in Nepal. It is the only Asian rhino.
Him: There are Javan and Sumatran rhinos. He he , now you have to draw 3 species.
Me: WHOOOAAAA!!! You are right. Okay. Never heard of Javan and Sumatran rhino. Thanks for the information. Oh boy so many things to learn.
Him: so many things to draw by you.
Me: Sumatran rhinos look different and they have hair! Javan rhinos are so ugly. Hahahah!
Him: you have to give them a shave, ha ha ha.
Me: Hahaha. Okay, gotta go to work. Tsup!
