Illustration Friday - 'acrobat'



A quick line sketch, some scribbles with colored pencil and a bit of Photoshop magic for IF's theme this week 'acrobat'. I originally thought of doing a traditional (human) acrobat, but decided to focus on an animal one instead.

This is my first ever drawing of an elephant, actually I don't generally draw animals at all, mostly just birds, but I really enjoyed it. I had mentioned the saying to a friend of mine awhile back on how to tackle a huge task or project (like my new Etsy shop). Do it the same way you would if you had to eat an elephant - one bite at a time - so I added a few nibbles to the ear :) Thanks for the nudge to sketch this Kris, I think with some tweaking it would make a great inspirational card or print......

Have a creative week friends - and as always, be well.
