This is a portrait of Archibald B. Monaghan III, a snapping alligator turtle (Macrochelys temminckii) and part of my trilogy of Elegant Beasts.
I realized that it had been too long since me doing any significant illustration work, so I embarked in this little project. The rules would be simple: it would involve character design, animals I found particularly fascinating and/or badass and a certain degree of realism.

Soon available in clothing, stickers, iPhone and iPad cases.
