First post - need help on moving body part

First post. Coming out of lurkdom. Nice site.

I was wondering if someone can point me to some tutorials/books etc., or give me some tips on moving a body part.

In the attached image (if it worked), I want to move the right leg closer to the left leg. I'm having trouble making it look right.

Thanks!

Legs

Here I've just selected off the right leg, duplicated layer, moved over, and cloned over the original. Also, I duplicated and multiplied just because I thought it looked better.

Hi Babuska,

glad you decided to come "out of lurkdom" and joined us!!!

Welcome to RP!

If this is what you had in mind, I got there by:

* Selecting the whole right leg.

* Ctrl+J copied the selection on its own Layer.

* Moved and rotated the top Layer until I had the leg where I wanted it.

* Created a layer mask on the 'rotated' Layer and with a soft black brush (Opacity 30-40%) carefully blended it with the original background.

* Used the Heal Brush (Mode>Replace) to cover what was still visible of the original right leg with the stone ground.

Hope this helps.

P.S. I work with Photoshop CS.

TylerRB,

great job!!

Thanks Flora!

I'm pretty much just forcing myself to try and accomplish some of these tasks/challenges when I can. I am pretty new, so hopefully I will slowly gain understanding.

Tyler,

you are welcome, and you are surely getting there ....

P.S. couldn't agree more about "forcing myself to try and accomplish some of these tasks/challenges when I can"

Hi Babuska, like the others I did a copy and paste. However, I moved both legs slightly towards each other, to keep the geometry more correct.

Then cloned and patched to hide legs on Background layer. Was in a bit of a rush, so cloning of grass by her right foot is not as good as it should be. If i had time I'd correct, but it's getting a little late here. (2.25 am).

Thanks! You certainly did a better job than I did though I'm not sure why. You didn't do anything too much different than I did. Perhaps I was just making it harder than it is? I'll go play some more and find out. Thanks again!
