Baby Elephant Walk - PASTEL PAINTING by AstridBruning Baby Elephant Walk - PASTEL PAINTING by AstridBruning
24x23inch Pastel Elephants in North Thailand. This baby was only 2 days old.

This is an entry for the contest "Motherhood" of :iconmesmerizing-animals:




This is a scan of a photo of the drawing, so the quality is not 100%

First time I had painted an elephant and I found getting the skin texture right very challenging.

I'd like to start out by saying that when I first saw this I thought it was a photograph. A simply amazing attention to detail is evident here for sure.

The only thing here that I could say critique wise is that sharper edges on the animals would make it a bit more realistic and less soft pastel like. A little more shadow on the little elephants front leg might make it stick out a little less awkwardly as well. Otherwise there isn't really anything to complain about at all.

The details are fantastic, the skin looks very real, the shadows are simply amazing and the color choices are wonderful. I'm in love with the lighting and the composition as well. You picked a beautiful piece to create for sure. Its very pleasing to look at and enjoy.

Keep up the great work!
