New book about Dadia reserve in Greece

Just received a book published by WWF Greece, which includes a
selection of scientific papers regarding the famous Dadia raptor reserve
in North-eastern Greece.
It is actually a systematic presentation of all studies carried out on this area
over the last 20 years.
I was privileged to be commisioned to illustrate this book.
All of the drawings have been done using a simple BIC ballpoint pen.
Attached, few of the illustrations.....

Attached, my efforts to depict the animal, starting with the initial pencil drawing , and showing the process step by step to the finished pen drawing. Eventually , I noticed several mistakes on his anatomy, decided to revise the image, started a couple of watercolours, and managed to complete at least one . Forgot to mention that videos taken in Hobart zoo( Tasmania) in the 30`s of last century have been a great help while creating my image. The finished watercolour , I managed eventually to complete

I decided to remove the tiger and repainted it over the background but much smaller. Surely not my best attempt but I know that I`ll be able to create a much better painting one day.
