It's not often that people get to witness the beauty of nature firsthand, but luckily, artists like Amy Dover are bringing the wonderful world of wildlife into people's homes via these realistically rendered animal illustrations.
Drawn using only graphite pencils, these Amy Dover creations are a breath of fresh air to those who feel bogged down by the pristine digitally enhanced look of images currently saturating mainstream media. When you look at a Dover piece, you're leaving city life behind and this special quality sets her illustrations apart from many artists currently working in industry.
Among the animals Dover renders recurrently are birds, wolves, bunnies and bears. Though some of these creatures are predatory by nature, Dover always manages to render them with an elegance and grace only attainable by skilled artists.
