Just some sketches of the silhouette, and as much I'd think it'd cool to animate it actually in the sketchy line way, it's not the style I'm going for, so I can't :/ oh well, maybe another time if I do something abstract. Besides that would be quite a nightmare animating it like that if I were to, wouldn't it...?
It's not a monster, it's just a silhouette of Bananas, mistaken by Elliot to be a monster, and appears like a somewhat "Gorilla" (well that was the idea) because it's dark and Elliot's panicked and scared so he's doesn't take his time to see what it really is. He's just going to appear as a black silhouette.

After a long time of researching real elephants and all the other cartoons I could think of, I came across a DVD, a really old cartoon which I had completely forgotten about, which I used to love and adore. All those memories and even the the song came back to me. Bump the Elephant! I bought the DVD, but stupidly left it back home with my 3 year old nephew so I can't take any screen captures and decent pictures are hard to find let alone any at all. But Bump is the almost the perfect example of what I'm aiming for, flat colours but slightly washed out, simple shapes all over, simple backgrounds etc.
