cartoon postal pigeon avoiding elephant's airplane

This digital photoshop illustration features a 'postal pigeon', complete with mail sack, flying in the air and startled by an elephant piloting a small plane close by.

The horizon is slightly tilted to give extra dynamics to the action, as do the letters flying out of the postal bag. The pigeon is painted quite realistically, whereas the elephant is cartoonised to a point to allow his anatomy to fit within the small airplane, and also has a large head! A river was added to help break up the landscape and add some from, helping to creat distance and height in the artwork.

Painted in 2009, to a small size of 1200px X 1600px.
