Harness by LuxDani Harness by LuxDani
Personal piece.
Elephants are a symbol for me, a symbol that helps me in a time of great need. In need of strength.

Feedback is highly appreciated. C:

I like talking to people, especially right now..

Ref: [link]

The elephant is done entirely with black pen, plain old black ballpoint, and the black background is a mix of India ink and pen.

The original is for sale on Etsy : [link]

I love Elephants, have since I was a kid, and I am a very picky person as well, but this is just amazing. The detail is incredible. I applaud you on your amazing work!

Thank you so much! Elephants hold a special place in my heart so I was a little nervous about doing this piece but I'm pretty happy with it. :) Definitely plan on doing a large elephant painting in the future though

This has so much impact. It really made me sad :(  I love elephants. The wrinkles are so realistic and perfect!

I guess this was a vent/emotional piece for me, but it can be so much more than that. I love elephants <3

Wow!  Just a ballpoint pen?!  That is amazing!  I thought maybe pencils, but pen!  That makes it even more amazing.
