Another digital artwork created using Corel Painter v X for a WWF stamp issue for Sierra Leone. This close up of the head shows the distinctive ‘horns’ on this particular critter, which didn’t appear in the ref photo as it was of another sub-species. I added them using info given to me by the WWF zoologist.
I have been a freelance illustrator for over 40 years. For the last 10 years or so, I have been working exclusively digitally, using Corel Painter x V on PC. I do NOT manipulate photographs to create my paintings. I use photos for reference purposes only.
