3D Quilling: Enrique the Elephant

Enrique the Elephant is the first of the tiny animals in the Kurlikins collection (lots more to follow). He stands proudly and toots his trunk loudly.

I've given Enrique plenty of ventilation in the ear department, as well as a cool colour contrast.

Getting his trunk to stand up and out without tipping his body forward took a little bit of work. I got around this problem by placing his back legs a little further out to balance him.

Enrique stands at 3cm (1.2in) tall and is made from 6mm strips.
