Great details in the elephant's trunk and the splashing water is really well done. Must have been a difficult artwork. It's beautiful.

Well! No wonder you made the pen-and-ink elephant look so easy. ;p This is so realistic that I wondered if it was a photograph upon seeing the tiny thumbnail image in your gallery. The crisp detail of the animal against the less distinct backdrop coloration really helps to pop the subject forward and command attention to it. The spray of water looks great, too, and adds life to the piece.

I did this painting mostly to practice painting teh splashing water and got sidetracked with all those details on the elephant but I´m really happy with how it turned out :D
