The Evolution of Toothed Whales (Muscle Study)

Here’s the second part of my “Evolution of Toothed Whales” series. I wanted to illustrate how odontoceti whales have evolved and changed over the years. It’s cool seeing how their muscles changed in order to adapt to a marine lifestyle. I will be posting closeups of each animal throughout this month. Check out my skeletal studies to learn more about these animals! Muscles done in marker, colored pencil, and white pen.

My books are for sale!!
