'To The River' 4.25" x 16.5"

My latest Elephant drawing is now finished and I'm really pleased with how the crop turned out.i think its condensed the movement and detail into a nice format without 'losing' anything that I wanted to show in the drawing.the drawing is based on an encounter beside the Chobe river in Botswana where a group of elephants on there way to the river to drink crossed the trail in front of our safari vehicle,each one giving us a cursory flap of those huge ears as they passed in front of us.

Super work Clive, and an interesting departure in terms of composition.

It was on the banks of the Chobe that a slightly agitated elephant passed close to the rear of our safari vehicle and directed a deafening warning blast, seemingly at me. Needless to say, my heart rate instantly rocketed!

haha I can imagine that was a wakener peter! I enjoyed the experiment with cropping and will certainly think more in future about livening up the composition with cropping.
marc thanks very much ,glad you like it.
