colour patchwork Elephant


It's amazing as you look at elephants, all the colours that you can find in there. You get all the way from cool greys through paynes grey into pale sky blue, then across the warmer tones from warm greys right through ochre to terracotta. Tonights offering is a quick digial sketch to try and explore this range of colours in an attempt to liven things up a little. I was also aiming for a bit of a 1950's 60's stylized animation feel for no other reason than I like that sort of thing.

thats a great elephant! I love how its digitally created but looks like a collage done traditionally. So many tomes of colour too.
How good is drwan.ca! I've been visiting it quite religiously for the last few months. I have also recently started a creative blog and would love some visits and comments.. its a bit lonely floating all alone somewhere out there on the world wide web. www.skechup.blogspot.com

great elephant. the way the colors blend together and form a flowing natura whole as opposed to a patchwork of color is very well done. I saved it to my cool folder!

I love it too. Great colour and shape. The subtle lines add so much character. I'm a sucker for that "50's-60's stylised animation feel."
