What's with me and elephants?

Well, this is my first in months!  It's from the new Johanna Basford book, Magical Jungle. I chose this picture because it is simple. The toucan doesn't blend in to the sand (? in the jungle?), as much in real life; they are different colours. I used all Copics, probably about twenty.  I wasn't going to post it as it is certainly nothing special but, obviously, I decided to anyway.  I'm happy to be back at it though!

Love the elephant and the parrot!  Especially like the blue tusks and the rich color of the elephant's highlights against the lighter body color.  Cool pic.   :my_shy:

Ah, you're sweet, @Tikobaby. I guess that IS a parrot!  I do like the hits of blue but the rest is pretty blah. But, I had fun doing it and hope to do a nicer one this weekend!  It's raining here so it was a good day fof colouring, and it didn't take much time (clearly :pb_confused:).

Looks like a parrot to me!  :my_smile:

I'm still working on my latest page. Did photography today and editing so my eyes are too tired to color tonight, but it's about half finished. I'm a slow colorist, what can I say?  :marker:

It's lovely @Fascinated, the elephant is really good with the contrasting purples and the blue tusks and I really like the way you have done the background :my_smile:

this turned out great.  I love Magical jungle.  It was my favorite book until I got one called Super Cute Animals, which is my current favorite.  Have you seen the new Millie Marrota, Curious Creatures?

      I truly try not the judge other parents. I was at a pool with friends the other day and there was a fecal incident. My friend was like, “the parent should know of the child is potty trained and put them in a swim diaper!” I’m a terrible devil’s advocate so I couldn’t bite my tongue. Of course I had to say that the child who pooped may have special needs and we never know. And my friend agreed. 
       

      Of course we didn’t set foot in that pool even long after it was cleaned! The mental image was seared into our brains 🤣

      Jeremy and Jinger did a new you tube video. They are going back to vlogging. They are in a new house, in LA, and it sounds like they plan to be there awhile. They are remodeling. They talked about moving. It was riveting. 💤

      Blaming the parent is a cop out and empowers the child to act out.

      Absolutely - kids are individuals just like adults.  All you can do is your best but nobody is able to be ON 100% of the time without breaks.  We're not machines.

      It's moving day for the entitlement twins.  Anyone want to guess when their next grift will be?  I am sure it will be less than a day for their next "funding request" to appear.

      My guess is that some of their "boxes*" will have been lost, damaged, stolen, etc and they will be needing the items** in those particular boxes replaced ASAP.

      * boxes... if any boxes even exist. They collect free money then do whatever they want. 

      ** items... the lost boxes will "contain" their most valuable belongings so they can beg for as much money as possible.

      You know, it just occurred to me.. why would Josh even think he deserves another hearing? He is nobody but a minor D-list player.. and a bad one at that. Yeah, I know we're all equal under the law, but... he's not all that..
