Greets all

I've been muddling over this one for awhile.

I originally had this as a anti-poaching poster with gallons of blood all over the place, even on the tusks.

I placed it in the After 9 forum because of the nature but then i pulled it.
It just didn't sit well with me i guess.

So i re-worked it as a ink and watercolor sketch with a gloop pen border.
Now i can sleep better :)

Enjoy

Mike

This is just remarkable and beautiful, Mike. I am so glad that you've reworked this and have removed the blood. I am along with you and despise poaching of wild animals. You did the beauty of this beast justice by painting it in this light and so wonderfully at that!

Beautiful elephant Mike. It is tragic that some of these horrors still exist.:(

Uuuuh! It recalls me Hugo Pratt style (see Corto Maltese). Good!

Nice style and great work with the watercolors and gloop. The gloop border is a very nice effect.

I like the spontaneity this little piece shows, and the old time look of the good honest workmanship, lovely piece, Picasso. Something that could go into the schoolbook.

Very unique style you have and meaningful on this one. You have made this beautiful elephant very alive. It's just my feel and it passes a message and open their eyes to see the beauty of all wild animals. :):)
