The Indian rhino, with its shorter face and skull, and its deeply folded skin that looks almost like armor, has a distinctly different appearance from the African rhino, which has smoother skin and an enormously long face. I enjoy painting skin textures and the opportunity to show the beauty of these fascinating creatures.
