BATELEUR Terathopius ecaudatus (DIGITAL PAINTING NOT A PHOTOGRAPH) by 


First of 4 digital paintings created using Corel Painter v X, for a WWF FDC issue for Guinea Bissau. A Bateleur is a kind of eagle

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.

    WOW ‘O’ !!

  • Thanks Tai. As usual, the eye is what grabs your attention first, I think. Get that right and the rest is easy. X

    A wonderful work of art !

  • Thanks Trish. When I got the ref pix, I looked at this and thought ‘Well, that’s at least a couple of day’s work’…and it was. It took one to do the feathers alone.X

    look in his eye that says ‘dont mess with the Bateleur terathopius ecaudatus’…

  • Which I certainly wouldn’t…it’s not the eye I’d be watching, but that beak (not to mention the talons) X

    Amazing detail. Really wonderful!

  • Thanks Veronica. As usual, by the time this is reduced in size and printed, much of this detail is lost…but I stick it in anyway…keeps me off the streets…X
