animal b&w

I knew I wanted to paint an elephant for this project and I knew I wanted to use the oil paint sticks again because it worked very well for me with the color animal. I did the elephant first and then added the pops of pink to make it more exciting. I utilized shading to create the illusion of texture. I began by looking at the plastic elephant for the basic form but after that I added my own details. I am happy with the outcome, If I were to add something I would add a crown on the elephant's head.
