One of the most widely recognized animal symbols in human culture, the lion has been extensively depicted in sculptures and paintings, on national flags, and in contemporary films and literature.
Lions have been kept in menageries since the time of the Roman Empire and have been a key species sought for exhibition in zoological gardens across the world since the late 18th century.
Using only graphite pencil, Doug has really outdone himself with this image. When you see this drawing in person you'd swear you could feel the softness of the lion's fur. It remains one his most impressive and best-selling images.
This iconic image features a beautiful, majestic elephant walking across the grassy plains with Mount Kilimanjaro in the background.
The African elephant population dropped dramatically over the past century, from several million at the turn of the 20th century to less than 500,000 today. As a result, they have been listed as Vulnerable by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.
With its three volcanic cones, "Kibo", "Mawenzi", and "Shira", Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa, about 4,900 metres from its base, and 5,895 metres above sea level
We truly hope that you will enjoy this Stirring Image as much as we have enjoyed bringing it to you.
This image is a stunning example of pencil realism perfection and a great showcase of Doug's talent. You will have difficulty believing, but it really was drawn with only a pencil and eraser. Doug spent many long hours perfecting the detail in this elephant face, which has become one of our fan favourites.
An endangered species, we've done our best to capture the essence of these majestic, beautiful giants and hope to spread the love for them before they're all gone.
We truly hope that you will enjoy these Stirring Images as much as we have enjoyed bringing them to you.
The iconic wolf; ancestor to man's best friend. Wild and free, these stealthy hunters are often used to symbolize the toughest and most fearless side of ourselves - the warrior.
Doug has become known as "The Wolfman" thanks to his many perfect, photo-realistic drawings of these hauntingly beautiful animals.
The Harris's hawk (Parabuteo unicinctus) formerly known as the bay-winged hawk or dusky hawk, is a medium-large bird of prey that breeds from the southwestern United States south to Chile, central Argentina, and Brazil. Birds are sometimes reported at large in Western Europe, especially Britain, but it is a popular species in falconry and these records almost certainly all refer to escapes from captivity.
