Elephants in Ink

Here's another one drawn from a photo. I really liked the composition and the deep shadows in the original image and I wanted to see if I could capture that with a pen.

I also find myself wondering what exactly these two elephants are up to. I like to think the one on the right is saying something along the lines of "Hey, you've got something on your face. No, not there. A little to the right. No, wait, a little to the left. Oh, let me just get it for you." Either that or they're sending secret trunk signals that will precede their taking over as the dominant species on this planet and sending us all to work in their underground salt mines. I call the big shovel!
