After the demoralising Sunday, I wanted to go back to drawing animals.
My not-yet-two year old nephew loves elephants, so I’d been thinking for a while that I should learn to draw them realistically. Happily, Flickr explore in the previous week had an elephant photo that I saved for later:
I was still demoralised, so I did only the elephant, and not the background buffalo or trees.
It still seems a little cartoony – I’m not too sure how to get the wrinkles just right.
