Marathon Elephant

Tired of the other animals always calling him a fatty, Tantor started running in order to get into shape. I think he may have overdone it a little.

The elephant is all vector, drawn in InDesign. The background and shadow were done in Photoshop. I'm not crazy about that background, and may end up changing it.

  1. OMG! He's adorable and I love his back story. Are you enjoying the vector drawing more?

  2. Thanks, Dawn! I've been dabbling in vector because I think it's important for an artist to try new things now and then, so as not to stagnate. I like it, but it takes me much longer than drawing a bitmap-- no doubt because I'm still new to it.

    Also when I draw a bitmap it's easy to have fluid, spontaneous lines. It's a struggle to recreate that fluidity with vector, because you're not really drawing, you're setting down points and fiddling with those little levers to make the lines bend the way you want.
