‘Another elephant?’ I hear you cry. Or even, ‘Yet another elephant?’ Yes, yet another elephant but very different from the last. One day soon, when poaching, trafficking and killing for pleasure have been eradicated from the planet and the herds are increasing, I hope we’ll be saying the same thing with delighted relief.
This magnificent creature comes originally from Wikimedia, that great repository of public domain images.
You might imagine that I added a layer of black in Photoshop to create the effect, this is not so. I duplicated the elephant to the power of four and used several of my backgrounds and textures. By playing around with blending modes, I was able to create the effect of an elephant coming out of the darkness.
I just might do something with the baby elephant next!
Take care and keep laughing!
