Elephant by Graywolf95
Once common throughout Africa and Asia, elephant numbers were severely depleted during the 20th century, largely due to the massive ivory trade. While some populations are now stable and growing, poaching, conflict and habitat destruction continue to threaten the species.

The largest land mammal on earth, the African elephant weighs up to eight tons. The elephant is distinguished by its massive body, large ears and a long trunk, which has many uses ranging from using it as a hand to pick up objects, as a horn to trumpet warnings, an arm raised in greeting to a hose for drinking water or bathing.

Asian elephants differ in several ways from their African relatives. They are much smaller in size and their ears are straight at the bottom, unlike the large fan-shape ears of the African species. Only some Asian male elephants have tusks. All African elephants, including females, have tusks. Elephants are either left or right-tusked and the one they use more is usually smaller because of wear and tear. The Asian elephant has four toes on the hind foot and five on the forefoot, while the African elephant has three on the hind foot and five on the forefoot.

Led by a matriarch, elephants are organized into complex social structures of females and calves, while male elephants tend to live in isolation. A single calf is born to a female once every 4-5 years and after a gestation period of 22 months—the longest of any mammal. These calves stay with their mothers for years and are also cared for by other females in the group.

The two species of elephants—African and Asian—need extensive land to survive. Roaming in herds and consuming hundreds of pounds of plant matter in a single day, both species of elephant require extensive amounts of food, water and space. As a result, these large mammals place great demands on the environment and often come into conflict with people in competition for resources.…

Art Class Excercise by Graywolf95
Art Class Excercise
Something I did for my art class in junior year. We had to choose a photo and put a filter over it in photoshop that would break it apart into a black and white mosaic. Next, we had the manipulated photo printed onto a transparent slide and projected onto a large piece of cardboard where we carefully drew the outlines in pencil. Finally, we filled it in with shades of gray, black, and white. The photo I used was of my cat, Derwood.

Ke$ha by Graywolf95
This was an old school assignment on faces. I normally don't draw people, but I was happy about how this portrait turned out. Ke$ha was one of my favorite singers back in high school.

Kesha Rose Sebert, known as Kesha, is an American singer, rapper, and songwriter. In 2005, at age 18, Kesha was signed to producer Dr. Luke's record label, Kemosabe Entertainment, and publishing company.

I just made a tribute video to my favorite artist, Goldenwolf, who has been inspiring me for years. It includes her complete collection of anthro art from 1999 up to now, all of which is breathtakingly beautiful. Even if you aren't a big fan of anthro art, you won't be able to look at hers and not smile. Please watch here:… :D

Hey! It's me, that random fanfic writer x-The Devil's Advocate-x. You know, the one who always starts a lot of stories and then deletes them. ;P Anyways, nice dA page you've got here! And this is totally random, but I love Skillet and Hollywood Undead. :D
