Suah by Tammara Suah by Tammara
~Quality Prints available for purchase here~ [link]

The name Suah comes from Liberia, West Africa and it belongs to the dialect of Gio. It means "A new era, a new beginning"

I'm almost finished with another painting I've been working on but thought I would post this until it's done. I painted this one a while back but held off posting it until a friend gave a print of it to his wife for their anniversary.

Reference for the elephant coloring and wrinkleness :rofl: came from :iconetereas-stock: and can be found here: [link]

This is really adorable. Good job on the wrinkly textures, it is elephant-y without ruining the gentleness of the picture. :)
