I had the pleasure of coloring a short film for the Wildlife Conservation Society's recent gala honoring Hillary and Chelsea Clinton.
It might sound crazy, but I spent just as much time getting the "skin tone" right on the elephants as I usually do for people. Grey is a difficult color to get right, one nudge in the wrong direction and it can look red, purple, or green! Another challenge was creating a consistent look throughout even though the elephants all have different amounts of red mud on them.
