Here is the final version of the elephant I started in class last week. I did some more detail on the eyes and then darkened his body and added some shadows. Finally, I used some sharp scissors to scratch in the grasses against his dark body while the paint was still damp.
Adding some contrast really made a difference!
I wasn't able to finish this little guy in class, but I really like him so I'll hopefully put the final touches on tonight or tomorrow.
