well many have said both
but i dont like them THAT much, i just cant model people. Besides with a "company" name of Elephant Inc. people exspect to see an elephant here and there.
(BTW if an Elephant was going to raid a temple, in an indy spoof style, what do you think he would nick?)

Hmm, a peanut is a good idea, but what comicla characters would protect it? (i thought of a giant gummie bear but its not really related)

how about a couple mice?

the mythbusters tested the myth that elephants are afraid of them and everytime the mouse came close the elephant would back off lol

idk sounds funny in theory

yeah, thats a good idea
the ironic thing is that elephants cant actualt see mice (there eyesight is poor)
so they are probably scared because for all they now it might be a 15foot monster

There eyesight must be really poor if they think something that is 6 inches long is 15 foot tall!

More than likely its the movement of the mouse that makes it a bit worried.

Yeah see many years ago my friends helped me to coin Crimson Designs as my alias. Well to there dismay I gave them website after website which contained no red in it whatsoever. It threw people for a loop but then they started to associate that I was the Crimson out there that wasn't based on literal connections.

It never hurts to do the unexpected

the character is looking pretty good so far mate, keep it up.

Wow 400 people that is amazing, is it a school presentation or?

If it wasnt for your time limit then I will suggest that you should get him some fingers so that he can do the exchange with the golden statue/peanut.

It seems that your character resembles the one in your avatar, I guess its okey on this challange as its an animation challange really. That used to be a felony on some of the previous modeling/texturing challanges.

And regarding mice, if I remember correctly they get frightened becouse they think that the mouse looks like the head of a snake with its small size and fast movement. (Snakes are one of the elephants few enemies)

Good luck with your presentation.
