4th batch of the fish illustrations for the Fishes of River Safari. Slowly but surely I will finish uploading all. Haha.
This year Chinese New Year happened to falls on a January, which make it feels faster and lesser time for me to do my yearly CNY greeting poster. Nevertheless, I managed to complete one just before the Chinese New Year. Done with traditional drawing pen and enhance/color digitally in Photoshop. I am actually still working on another piece which I promise myself to do yearly featuring my children in the greeting poster. Hope to get it done just before the Chinese New Year.
Wishing everyone prosperous, healthy and wealthy year of The Horse. 恭喜发财！万事如意！
Sharing more fish illustrations done from River Safari Singapore. Not too sure where are these illustrations located on the actual panel. Some are used on interpretive panels while some on digital panels.
This batch of illustration was done in aboriginal art style and is about how the murray was created. An aboriginal myth.
Ngurunderi is a great ancestor of the Ngarrindjeri people. One day, he travelled down the Murray in search of his two wives who had run away. The Murray was then a small stream.
A giant Murray cod was swimming ahead. Ngurunderi tried to spear it from his canoe but the fish swam away, widening the river with sweeps of its tail.
At last, Ngurunderi speared the fish. He cut it into many pieces and threw them in the river. Each piece became a new species of fish.

Second batch of Yangtze River fish illustrations for River Safari.
Before working on this project, I honestly have no idea how to tell the difference between a Crocodile or Alligator. I don’t even know what is Indian Gharial or False Ghavial.
The actual panel…
