Well, this piece is quite a bit strange, isn't it?
The story behind this piece is that last week, my students and I were exploring the bone structure/locomotory system of elephants and were watching the Disney short 'Goliath II' and became totally lost in designing characters from those references. The funny legged monsters (below on the right) are btw by the talented Dustin Schiele. Great abstraction on the theme, love it.
For the most beautiful elephant designs on this very planet please go over here, Andrew's talent is high at the highest levels.
