Nick Carter
Using Photoshop 6.1 and Starbits.
1] Opened a new working window, set to 800*1100.
2[ Dragged into it the previous selection I had made of the bike.
3] This time I wanted to head the bike in a different direction.
4] Found the perfect cow in my clipart collection, selected it, and dragged
into the working window.
5] To make it interesting I decided to head the bike in the same direction as
the cow.
5] Selected out the rider. Selected the front wheel, cut and pasted into its
own level.
6] Flipped the wheel and rotated it, altered the lighting with dodge and burn
tools.
8} Moved it into position, altered thickness, and lighting on the rear wheel.
9] Altered headlight to bring every thing into alignment. Built drive and
engine where the riders leg and foot had been. Dodged and burnt to give
consistent visual aspect.
10] Moved cow into position, colourised him, gave rocket assist and some
handle bars to hold on to.
11] Found a picture of the Moon, selected and dragged in to working window.
12] Operated Omni lighting filter to give the moon some light, then turned it
into blocks of green cheese. Did you know that that is what it is actually
made of.
13] Went into the 'Starbits' program and constructed a typical starfield, as
can be seen on any starry night.
14] Copied it in to the clipboard then pasted into a new level.

I'll tell you what I really did.
01] Sent the authentic photo into the local 'Daily Blah-Blurb'
02] Scanned the cover page that they sent me, reduced to size and sent off to
RetouchPRO for your 'edification and amazement!!!!????'
P.S. its Gorgonzola.

I love it. It's whimsical and so well done, I just can't fault a thing. I'm with Lori, I just can't stop chuckling.

Very clever. What I like best is how you expressed the fantasy mood with the cartoon-like quality of the colorful sky and moon to tie in with the cartoon cow, and your colors are all coordinated to bring it all together.
