Temper. I dropped color in using photoshop. Erased the background. Created the background in powerpoint, then added the colored elephant image. I think the values are all too similar. Might have been more effective if elephant had been something like a lighter red-violet. I'll have to try that.
I really like this drawing. Coloring it with photoshop was ok but I'm noticing the more you click to change colors, the more detail is absorbed and lost.
Dazzle [left] and Discovery [below] were two of the most successful using drop in colors and not much else. I'm getting the message here that perhaps simpler is better for straight drop in colors.
