Re: Pachyderm

[...] The tusk and trunk can stand to be squeezed/stretched a little perhaps, but I don't want to quibble. [...] True, but only if I really wanted to make it more elephant-like. I opted to keep the tree part as close to original as possible and just add the "elephant" parts, if that makes...

Re: 'Chug-a-lug, Chug-a-lug'

Alright Dave, roll up your sleeves. I'm a gonna put ya to work... Linda touched a bit on the light issue with the fingers. There is definitely an incongruity of light direction between the subject and background. One solution may be to flip the background so that the light on both look like they're ...
