An elephant update

At last! I have finally done a little more to my elephant drawing. I'm not so happy with it as I was, it's becoming a bit too much like hard work. Doing these elephants has made me realise that I much prefer drawing head studies - they are more difficult to do but I prefer the amount of detail I can get, particularly in the eyes, which show so much emotion and the character of the animal. Anyway, here are two pics of it - the full drawing and a closer crop.

I guess all the great artists are/were self-critical. You are being too hard on yourself, it's superb.

Thank you, Jan.

They are coming on nicely and I think you have lots of detail here in the wrinkly skins!
