elephant sketching

I spent some time doing a bit more research on anatomy by refferencing Ken Hultgrens excellent book, the art of animal drawing. Research pays off.

sniper elephant!

Ajit the Invincible
I realized that my story needed to change and to have the elephant be the main character.  So now I've got a Hyper-Indian elephant sniper.  He lives to right the wrongs of society with his peanut firing trunk.  His main enemies would be ivory hunters and most likely he has a need to destroy the cast system and free any and all under tyrannies hand.  Whether he is just a renegade Indian elephant or something more God-like I've not determined as of yet.

I've got to tie together Indian culture, sniper, and hyper-active for this assignment.  I'm thinking about taking it to a child's fantasy where a little kid dreams of riding his or her elephant to the rescue....  I reserve the right to switch things up a lot.  I've asked the students to try their hands at 3 different styles as well.  Good luck.
