The King of the Watery Cups

So far, both of the Kings that I've done for this deck have a surrealist quality that I'm happy with. I hope that's something I can make happen for all the Kings... but you never know. 

Our King is actually playing on top of a large overturned bucket. In the background, instead of a ship in full sail and a frolicking dolphin, I have an elephant on a barge. Elephants are emotional creatures who are dependent upon copious amounts of water for their survival, which makes them a perfect mascot for the suit of cups... I hope to incorporate as many elephants as possible into the cards of this suit.
