My depiction of the legendary Badak Api or “Fire Rhino.”

Thus sayeth Wikipedia:
“There are legends about rhinoceros stamping out fire in Malaysia, India, and Burma. The mythical rhinoceros has a special name in Malay, badak api, where badak means rhinoceros and api means fire. The animal would come when a fire is lit in the forest and stamp it out.”

In this artwork I portrayed the Badak Api as a wise-looking red beast, whose horn sheds a glowing light as he patrols the forests looking for fires to stamp out.

My drawing is based off of the Black Rhino, a critically endangered species of Rhino from Africa.

Original artwork is 11 × 14 on Canson paper and is a mixed media piece featuring oil pastels, marker, and gold paint pen.
