I was going to call this one finished. After scanning it, I realize that the contrast between the skin in sunlight and the skin in the shade is too stark. I will go back in and scratch the black areas in the ear and knock it back with ink washes, which I've done on part of his trunk.

This is 5x7. Used Xacto #11 blade.

Good catch on the contrast. When you've done as you described it will be another stellar elephant piece. The textures are wonderful.

Definitely looks unfinished so looking forward to the update. I absolutely love your technique and the character you bring to your work Hector.
