How cute is that! I didn't get that elephant last year and regret it now! When I was taught how to use Copics, they told us to use a circular motion while colouring larger, open spaces ~ they also said to layer, layer, layer and layer the colour ... apparently you should be able to see the colour through the back so if you can't, you didn't layer enough! Do you think that might help? Even without my comments, I think this elephant is done beautifully :)

I think your coloring is fantastic, don't see anything wrong with it. I came across a blog that did a tutorial but I can't find it right now. Here are some links that may help you though

I think you did an excellent job. He's the best looking elephant I've ever seen.
