Well... whoever told those orks that enraging that oliphant was agood idea had a very strange sense of humor.
I am very impressed by the angry look on that big ones face - you really caught that well. And you did a good job on the motion here - one can almost feel the ground shaking!
Nice one Richard Svensson

Sometimes simplicity is the best. I wish my paintings could be so ’simple.’ Richard Svensson
replies: "When you do a painting (and you will recognize this) you almost always wish it could’ve been better. So I’m glad I managed to reach out and touch you with my oliphaunt "

Beautiful, however I can’t help thinking how much more he looks like a mammoth than an elephant. Maybe that’s why he’s an Oliphaunt. Richard Svensson
replies: "Yep, his look is inspired by Mammuthus imperator and other giants."
