This is what I've loved working on the most lately. Clean, simple illustrations of megafauna for Information Illustration. Oh my god, it's been satisfying my craving for rendering. I've been wanting to do more serious and clean drawings, and while I enjoy painting and stylizing as well, I've been itching to do more serious and realistic art (or at least a style that combines realism with a clean graphic quality). I've been spending more time than I should on this project in particular, just because I also am fascinated by animals in general, and even more so by some of the crazy prehistoric species with really distinct or unique anatomy.

There's the finished (though I may touch them up) renders of the Paraceratherium and the White Rhinoceros, as well as the line drawings of the ground sloths and three toed sloth. I've also included a rough layout of how the pages will kind of look. I need to rearrange some type, and finish rendering the Coelodonta (it's not done, that's why it looks bad) and possibly add some more spot drawings like the skulls to highlight interesting facts about each species.
