    I just got this yesterday and am really happy with the way it turned out. I just wanted to see what some other people thought of it. I am doing another session for the color which will be a lot of reds. I've got crazy pale skin so I am all about bright colors with all of my work. Honest opinions.. and I know I am basically the epitome of a lurker.

    I like it how it is, but if I was going to do color, I'd probably just do the rug or whatever is on its back. but either way, that looks pretty good. I bet that hurt like a bitch. how long did it take?

    also the one issue I see is the back left leg appears to be a bit skinny compared to the rest of the baby. maybe its just the angle though.

    The original plan was to have the colors be mostly reds, but after seeing the way it turned out with just the shading I might go a little easy on the color. As far as the back leg the angle does make it look really skinny, from straight on it is pretty proportionate. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.. It was a take on Dali's elephants with a bit of a more modern feel to it.

    and the pain wasn't as bad as I was expecting. Some parts were pretty brutal, but overall not too bad. If I actually had some mass around my ribs it wouldn't have been bad at all

    Does it mean anything special to you? I'm curious as to the image used as I've never seen an elephant with long, thin legs before :)

    OK wow, how did I miss that? Thanks for the posting that's a famous image.


    I guess this sinus and ear infection is doing enough to my brain as well.

    I also wanted to know if it meant anything or just liked the painting.

    I'm glad you guys like it. I don't have anything else worth posting.. I've been a broke college kid and just now have money to get work I have wanted. I'll post an updated pic next week after the next session

    I forgot to mention I got it at freaks on Broadway in Kansas City
