The Rhinoceros sondaicus or also know as the Javan Rhino are the most threatened of the five rhino species with only 58-68 individuals surviving in Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia. Looking into the treat they face it has massively changed with human effects being much less than in the past. Like all the Rhino species poachers have treated them with taking there horns for trophies and to make medicine but the last Javan Rhino poached was in 2010.

The Pseudoryx nghetinhensis or most commonly known as the Saola is now classed as a critically endangered animal. Is is unknown how many are still alive but they estimate less then 250 are in existence. One of the biggest reason these animals are nearly extinct is because of humans. The Saola have been hunted for years. There horns have made them a big target amongst the locals as they take like trophies because they look impressive. Saola live in Evergreen forests but the constant removal of there habitat with deforestation and being hunted for the impressive horns has resulted in a huge decrees to their population.

For one of my University Projects I’m doing a series of Endangered animals but still carrying the previous spirit animals afterwards. To start this new series I have created the Logo and hope you all like it. This is also on my Redbubble account.
Another experimental piece with blue and purple Chameleon Pens. Like my previous post this is very different to my usual style but I really like the style and how it has turned out making it look a bit like my previous fox drawing. The Tiger’s spirit animal has a lot of will power and courage but also has a dark side of anger and aggression. Does this match your personality?
Creating this piece, I think this style is not like my work in the slightest. I was looking into using colour in my work but I think it has gone more into a realism pencil drawing. The turtle spirit animal is slow but has a lot of wisdom and is straight and understanding.
The next of the spirit animals, the Dragonfly. Easily adaptable, dives deep into their feelings. Being on the look out for illusions and deceits, but also has a connection with nature.
The next spirit animal is the crow. Their spirit is intelligent, fearless but also a trickster. Does this sound like you ?
