Here come the elephants

Above I have the elephants roughed in. Once they are mostly dry, I can work on the transition from the grasses to their legs.

Like most times when I paint spotted or striped animals, (cheetah, giraffe, leopard, zebra, tiger, etc), I like to paint the spots or stripes first. Next, I'll fill in the background color and then revisit the spots, making sure the fur reads well.
