Elephant Universe by JonBeinart Elephant Universe by JonBeinart
This is a Pencil and ink drawing on A4. This one was a mission, but I am very happy with the result. I'm pretty certain that it is the most detailed drawing i have done in my life. It is very important that it is viewed at full size. I hope you enjoy it. Here is the first drawing in this series Large Lady Themepark [link]

Daily Deviation

Given 2006-06-17
Today's Print of the Day is something for the jigsaw puzzle lovers amongst us. Elephant Universe by =JonBeinart, a complex surreal drawing of a myriad of life-forms merging into a few key elements, is a mind-boggling puzzle in more than one sense. Warm up your gray matter, this one's gonna be tricky to solve. ( Featured by Thunderstatement )

It looks like it should be an ivory carving or something.

I have the sudden strangest urge to color in all the tiny people and animals. But they look much better white.
