I find it hard to believe that you would care about animal anatomy solely as a "science student", unless you are specifically in the field of zoology. :p Because physics, chemistry, astronomy, and the majority of biology (including the ever popular neuroscience, immunology and molecular biology) students certainly don't.
I am a molecular biology grad student. Obviously, not a zoology student. Ramy is a med student? That should definitely come with an interest in anatomical correctness. And as far as I go, science is beautiful. I have degrees in both molecular and microbiology. I have a minor in biochemistry. Science is infinitely gorgeous. I can be just at peace with the complexity of the Erk1/Erk2 Mapk signaling pathway as I can be with the simple power of Escherichia coli O157 and as I can with gravity and its unbelievable impact on the universe. But all these things, and everything else in science work because of their individual, intricate correctness. I love science. All science. With that comes an honest respect for correctness and ultimately a respect for valid anatomical representation.
Aside from all this, my point was hardly that the anatomy of your elephant was a deciding factor in disliking this design so much. Remember, it really has no wearability. I I have this burning sensation... to wear a shirt with poor animal representation but I really I have this burning sensation... to wear a shirt I think most gradeschoolers would find too childish. My argument is not with you. I do not like your work but I am upset with the voters. I simply do not understand and doubt anyone will ever be able to prove to me otherwise.
