International Art - Socotra Boy Character Study

 

This art is hand drawn and inked in my sketchbook. 

 

The past few years, I've been developing a story that revolves around a small archipelago in the Indian Ocean named Socotra. Socotra is a Yemeni territory and one of the most-isolated landforms on Earth. It's considered the jewel of biodiversity in the Arabian Sea and like other more famous isolated and biodiverse archipelagos, like Madagascar or the Galapagos, it hosts scores of endemic species. 

 

One of the most striking of Socotra's plants is the cucumber tree, Dendrosicyos socotranus, drawn in the background here.
