Woolly Rhinoceros

Woolly Rhinoceros

Piece description from the artist

A shaggy beast emerges from the mists of time. This is the Woolly Rhino, Coelodonta Antiquitatis, a species of rhinoceros that existed during the last Ice age. He stands in a grassy clearing with hints of snow tracing the ground. A dense fog, or perhaps smoke from a nearby grass fire, almost completely envelopes him.

I haven’t done much paleoart lately, but I'd been getting the itch to create a prehistoric animal artwork lately, so here is the latest in my extinct creature series. I've made art before depicting the wooly rhino. It's one of my favorite of the Pleistocene megafauna, but I was trying a new fur technique with this one, and I think it turned out rather well. I went for less scenery in this one and went with a more textbook illustration feel. Hence, I have the creature in profile and eliminated any details in the background.
