Elephants are really fascinating animals. They are said to be able to live up to 70 years in the wild and able to communicate by touch, sight, smell and sound. They are very intelligent. Not only do they have a reputation for remembering people and being seemingly self aware, they also morn their death.
I used pebeo watercolours and staedler watercolour pencils for this drawing. For the little details like the eyes, I used a black pen (Micron).
