    Elephant Ink and Watercolor

    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!

    You have truly mastered the watercolor/gloop technique
