This squiggle is done entirely with colored pencils. I wanted to experiment with the grey color and wrinkling hide of an elephant. I used blue, orange, yellow and purple for an interesting effect. Not quite the grey I was looking for but interesting.
Elephants never cease to amaze me. That may be why they turn up so often in my squiggles.
I did this squiggle of the elephant using only red, blue and yellow color pencils. This was before I used black to bring out some depth and I can see how that would help. I do like the way though that not all of the color is blended. This does add some depth and lots of texture.
The mouse and the butterfly are a combination of marker and pencil. They are there because the elephant was lonely.
