Drawing Elephants

I don’t know if it’s because I was having a ‘special relationship’ with my nose yesterday (for those of you who didn’t see yesterday’s post, I’ve got a cold – it is getting better now though) but I started drawing elephants.

There are less sketches on a page because elephants are bigger than foxes (see my post entitled ‘Fox Frenzy‘). I had to switch to a different, bigger sketchbook.

As you can see I did my usual thing of looking at a version of the subject that I like (here Elmer the elephant – top of the first page), sketching from the photo of a real subject and finally developing my own version.
