Reptile Pencil Drawings

Our first post covering exclusively reptiles.

This is the work of Japanese artist A Hirata. If the online translation is correct: Hirata has been breeding reptiles for 20 years. The drawings are created after work and are of a variety of different species.

The artist started with black and white drawings and has just transitioned to color ones. Given the response from the viewers and followers, plus the new found love for this colored medium, I am guessing we will be seeing many more of them.

Realistic drawings, helped in no small measure by cuteness of the animals drawn. They make for a fascinating watch and one a little bit different, than what you might be used to seeing here.

In the spirit of change and new: How about you trying something with your Sunday you are not in the habit of doing? You might just find something special.
