My newest animal illustration, a Keel-billed Toucan. This guy's been in the back of my mind for a year or so and I was finally in the mood to paint something different and colorful.
I drew this Toucan up in the tree canopy of a rainforest, where they spend most of their time. Not especially good flyers, they prefer to hop along branches - and will follow each other in a line from tree to tree. They are quite animated birds that spend their time in groups, sparring with their bills and tossing fruit to themselves and each other!
