Drawing tips by elen89 Drawing tips by elen89
Drawing tips tutorial.
Photoshop CS4, Wacom intuos 3.

I was practicing on drawing elephants and I though it would make a nice tutorial, I ended up using more time on writing this
then I used on drawing the elephant.. I hate writing and I feel like this turned out so weird =P But I tried my best,
there probably is a few grammar or spelling errors so I'm prepared for comments about that =P

I hope this is to some help for some.

Oo I don't remember giving permission to use the picture as a reference.
Not a horrible thing, I just like to know who is using them and where they end up.

And I like to see the finished products as well. :D

I'm sorry I didn't ask :/ I didn't know where to find you, or if you where on DA.
I just didn't remember where I found the picture, maybe it was google.., So I just wrote your name (that was on the picture) in the artist description.
I will link to your photo now :)

I didn't really mean to upload this to DA at all, I was just practicing on drawing elephants and I just thought the end result would make a good tutorial,
And then when I remembered that I had used a ref, so did I not found out where I got it from.

Thanks for not being very angry :3

That's okay. I'm usually more upset at people who use the pictures for manipulation purposes since none of my photos are stock pictures. But using them for references is usually okay with me.
Could be a chance that it was a link from the zoo since I took the picture for them for the event.
Thanks for linking back too!

Thank you :)
I'm glad I finally found you :D
This picture has been bothering me a little because I didn't know where I got it, and I prefer to ask permission.
