I love elephants! And so does Cheryl Merril, who’s posting an elephant photo every day!
I did this drawing after this elephant photo
And I think it turned out pretty good.. When you look from afar. Except for one ear which is a little too small. There just wasn’t enough space for it. Elephants are big things – I should have known that it wouldn’t fit into a small sketchbook !
Thanks to Cheryl Merril for letting me use the photo!

Wow, I think this is your best work yet! Well done!
Thanks a lot ;).. I’m really happy you like it!
It’s ok to go off the edge!
Ill just go ahead and do that next time 😉
Nice drawing from my photo. I wish I had that sort of talent, but all I can do is point and shoot a camera.
You do that really well though! Thanks a lot! I’ve been drawing every day since September, and a lot has happened since then. I think that anyone can get good at drawing it it’s just done often enough!
The shading on this is great! & I agree with Ian – I think it’d look cool to have the drawing go off the page a bit.
