Whats App pictures are downloaded to your Gallery by default but a separate copy is also kept in a sent folder within WhatsApp that you can retrieve:

2. Find WhatsApp folder.
3. Media and now if you select WhatsApp images you can see what pictures you received or the ones that you have sent in a sent folder. Even if the pictures were deleted from Gallery or from WhatsApp they will still be here.

WhatsApp Video and voice notes contain the audio and so on that were sent or received in WhatsApp also.
