Hi Chrissy – I have been trying to make the 3D elephant you have, but I keep getting caught on section 8 where it tells us to pinch the diagonal. At one point I thought I had it figured out but then none of the other steps worked out really well. Is there any chance you might be able to make a video for this tutorial? I have been struggling with this one for about a week now! ?
