Free Elephant Clip Art!- How to make your own
1st- Google search royalty free photographs of the silhouette you want. Animals work great! Flickr is an amazing source. Once you find your image, transfer it into Photoshop or similar program.
Then, switch the mask back over so your image is selected perfectly :) in my case, not-so-perfectly-but-good-enough! I'm all about being "good enough!"
Then, open up a new page and drag your selected image over to your new canvas. You should have your selected image against a white background. Then all you have to do is black it out with your paint bucket. To do this, select the paint bucket and make sure your color is set to black. Fill the image by clicking in various areas over the entire animal. Careful not to click outside the lines! If you do, your entire background will be black. Use your go back option. I use that a lot in Photoshop.
You can also set your contrast to dark and use a paintbrush to fill in the fine lines.
