Artist's notes:

The Malayan Tapir was completed on 8.22,2012. For the most part, I rarely go back and completely re-do an illustration. In the case of the Malayan Tapir, however, the original really was quite bad. I've developed a few new techniques that allow me to complete a drawing like this in less time, while allowing me to work with a larger original which results in a stronger drawing when completed. It really feels good to replace one of the weakest drawings in the image library with a much stronger one. The drawing is based on a photo by Ellen van Yperen.

Information about the Malayan Tapir:

The Malayan Tapir - also called the Asian Tapir - is the largest of the four extant species of Tapir. The Tapirs habitat is the tropical lowland rainforests of Southeast Asia. Their diet includes grasses, aquatic plants, leaves, soft twigs and fruits of low-growing shrubs, which it tugs with its nostrils that it uses like fingers . Like many other animals of the rainforest, their numbers are in decline due to habitat loss and poaching. Despite protection and attempts to stem hunting, the Malayan Tapir conservation status is considered endangered and it's future is uncertain.
