Shek you killer. Awesome work I really like the style you had going with the drawings over coloured pages. cant wait to see what you do whenever you make it out to India

Andre Barnwell said...

Dang Shek! I don't even know how you do it when you do it, but I'm glad you do it. Keep doing it.

These are so great! I'll just repeat what I always post, which is that I admire how you can feed your design sense off the feel and specifics of the animals you're drawing... making them appealing and interesting not by homogenizing them or slicking them out, but by making them more quintessentially an elephant...

Hoony said...

Awesome drawing!

Thomps said...

these are some phenomenal drawings. the paint you apply to the page before even starting to draw makes them that more appealing.

Wonderful studies. Elephants are surprisingly soft on their feet (judging by your video).

these elephant sketches ROCK!

Kasey said...

Wow, how freakin' cool to see so many animals up close like that? Seeing that wild bull saunter right on by you must've been incredible.

As always, love your sketches--the character and style never cease to inspire me, thanks so much for sharing.
