Elephant Training
Contest Directions: This Thursday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images. Elephants are one of the smartest mammal kinds. They are easily trained and thus were used by humans since ancient times - for transportation, in battles, and for various entertaining activities and public events. In ancient India any white/albino elephant automatically became the property of the king and was considered a sacred animal.
Photoshop this photo of elephant training any way you wish. Some examples are - show what creative things this elephant is capable of, put him in some unexpected environment, etc. (Image credit: Venson Kuchipudi)

  • Elephant Painting with Flour

    Elephant Painting with Flour
        • Cute elephant, cute babe, cute old man and cute idea. What's not to love This one really has a whole lot of charm!
        • Great chop, but I can't recognize elements from source-
          Am I wrong ?
        • There is a little doll leaning on the peanut bag
        • Very freaking clever! I do wish the elements from the source photo took more central / larger part in the composition though (the doll part is great but quite a small detail in the overall chop). But on its own it's an outstanding chop, hands down!
