Elephant in a Box
I tried out a lot of new techniques when I drew this. The wrinkles on the skin were etched in before I started shading. That was a really cool effect. It gave it sort of a 3D look. It was also the first time I'd really put in much of a background on a drawing. The most fun part was showing it to people. I could tell who had an artistic eye, and who just didn't "get it". The ones who liked it saw that it's just sort of an abstract drawing. But some people just asked me why I drew an elephant's butt lol.
