Leap of Faith by mitanei Leap of Faith by mitanei
Acknowledge your wings and fly!


Winged Elephant wet-folded from a 50 x 50 cm square of double-colored "Elefantenhaut"-paper (two papers where glued together with MC to achieve the double-colored effect).

Design by me.

I do not allow the commercial use of my artwork without my approval!

Update:

Thank you for the DD! That was a very lovely surprise when I logged in.
Thank you especially to Mouselemur for suggesting and cakecrumbs for featuring my artwork and thank you all for your nice comments!

Ha, I like them a lot too. Haven't read much of them yet (They used to be a bit to hard for me when I started to read them, although I still enjoyed them), but as I'm reading game of thrones now, I'm sure I'll be able to read them soon enough ^_^

This is beautiful! I adore the curve of the trunk and the way it forms the eye, the detail is excellent!

Thank you ShermanSquiggly! That shape is the reason I prefer to fold him over my other elephant designs.

Very good!    The head of the elephant is excellent and those wings are cute too.   
 They better be magical, because they have a lot to lift.
