Kordelia, thank you for a collection of amazing pics! I especially love the one of you with the motorcycle :)

On a different thread, I hope to do the moose later in the week. Very cool :cool:

For this thread though, I'm posting that elephant note holder perched on your cool wall hanging. I couldn't believe it when I spied it there. I have the exact same elephant, and sketched it last winter for the Wet Canvas Scavenger Hunt (#471). I hope it's okay, but I'm putting that same sketch here in this thread because I love the expression on the little one's face :heart: It's my fav note holder :)



Non-virtual pencil:
..... Cretacolor Fine Art Graphite Pencils (2H and 9B)

Non-virtual paper:
..... Stonehenge 100% cotton drawing paper (250 gsm)


Freehand, no drafting tools or tracing, no grid.

Reference item located several inches away.

O so cute!! I love these guys and the childish wallhanging seemed the perfect b/g.... did you notice See/Hear/Speak no Evil??? My favorite little girl tho is The Flirty Gerty next to the flower bouquet.... she usually spends her days flirting with the big cat teapot..... waiting for The Moose..... did you know they "bugle"??? :wave:

Thanks for your kind words Kay and EP and tyree and Maureen! :wave:

Thanks Kor! I did spy out the three No-Evils :evil: They crack me up :lol: :angel: Oh, and I have the white tiger too! I love your Flirty Gerty too, and I've been trying to draw her on the back of the moose. Failure though :o I blame that thin back :cat: Maybe she could ride on those antlers, but that could be a little risky :eek:

PC((((whispering: you could use her wide bottom as a tutu, and give her ballet dancer legs.... they would fit......))))):clear: carry on.........

Thanks for dropping by Christine, Roz and Kate :wave:

Kor, I'm still trying with the moose, but it is sure a tough one :eek: I liked your ballerina idea, so I turned her into a prima ballerina. But I thought I could have her swinging from an antler, hanging from the flower garland, doing a grand jeté, instead of trying to balance on a perilous antler or rump :eek: But it seems I've bitten off more than I can chew. I can see it in my head, but I can't get it down on the page.
