I was quite surprised when I noticed this was done in acrylic and that it wasn't a photograph! First and foremost, the gloomy fantasia purple and devilish red colors you used made me very interested in this. The structure of the elephant is very cool, especially the skull, ears, trunk, and cheeks. I also liked the clay colored light on the forehead. The wrinkles on the trunk and cheeks are awesome. I still cannot believe that this is not a photo! I was so compelled to critique this. *:+fav:s* Please continue this beautiful work. Space Elephant is an interesting title for this piece of work... please explain?

Wow, great realism, while also taking that little shift to the left. I mean, it's an elephant in space, but it's definitely an elephant in space. And anyway, why not? Maybe it's one of the Discworld elephants...

Yes you got it - why wouldn't elephants be on Space Arks of the future? This one could be a little sad, I think it misses Africa....

Thanks again for visiting some of my older and less-discovered works :hug:
