The Dingo was completed on 5.1.2011. Australian animals are incredible. The oddness of the animals there makes them excellent subjects to draw. At this time I've completed four of the more notable animals (platypus, koala, red kangaroo and now the dingo) but I'll probably add more soon. Working on this drawing, I occasionally looked over at my dog to make sure I was getting the facial features correct. The drawing is based on a photo by 'Cheeseness' of Flickr.
The Australian Dingo is a free-roaming carnivore and member of the Canidae family, which are "wolf-like" or "dog-like" animals. It is believed that the dingo might have arrived with humans from Southeast Asia thousands of years ago. This would mean that the animals would have evolved to the conditions of Australia, and having been so separated and isolated they developed into their own unique species. Dingo live in a variety of habitats, including deserts, mountains, tropical forests as well as some urban areas where they occasionally can come into conflict with humans. They play an important role as one of Australia's apex predators. Over the last decades, the species has been interbreeding with the domestic dog, which they are close relatives to, and these dog-dingo hybrids now have caused their conservation status to be considered 'vulnerable.'
