Baby Nile Crocodile by shoomlah Baby Nile Crocodile by shoomlah
Oooh, iambic pentameter... As long as you pronounce nile as nie-ull, anyway. But I digress!

An acrylic portrait of a nile crocodilian, since they're so durned cute and since reptiles are violently underrepresented in wildlife art.

Darn tootin'! I've been meanting to do some reptilian anthros (/non-anthros) for a while now. I got to play with baby gators yesterday as a matter of fact :) They make the cutest sounds.

Awesome pic. As detailed as it is, so much of you still shows in it.

Wow. I think that's all I can say about this.

This is of the quality that it could be used in an encyclopedia or something in the Nile Crocodile entry or something. It's absolutely amazing. With the right CGing techniques you could make it look like it's a photo.

The detail! Oh my gosh! It's absolutely wonderful how much detail this picture has! *falls over*
