Compositing skier with cheetah - any ideas

Hi guys,

I would like to make a composite of a female speed skier (fastest non motorized sport) and I am trying to come up with ideas.

I have this idea of combining a running cheetah (fastest animal on the planet) with the skier but I am not sure how to do it. Any ideas? I mocked around with combining the back of cheetah (up to front legs and) and the front of a skier (arms/helmet etc) but it looked kind of lame.

Another idea was to put the eyes of a cheetah inside a speed skiing helmet so that the eyes of the cheetah are barely visible behind the black glass.

I have not shot the skier yet so if the idea seems viable I will have to find a good stock photo of a cheetah and then work out lighting and angle for the photo from there.

Thanks

maybe just the cheetah running alongside the skier ? not sure which would be faster but they could be put in order! and it would perhaps show the freedom felt while sking ?

just a thought

The skiers are around twice as fast as the cheetah.
