Clone out rig

I am having problems cloning out the rig in this shot. I have tried the patch tool and have tried the sans cloning technique but it is still obvious where I have been.

Please can someone have a go and tell me where I am going wrong.

Steve.

Re: Clone out rig

Steve, for something like that, your best bet is the pen tool.

Re: Clone out rig

I gave this a try with the clone and patch tools. I also used a Dodge and burn layer, to darken and lighten up the ground.

Re: Clone out rig

for the dark part of the tire track, i would cut & paste it from another section, then adjust it with free transorm to make it fit...instead of trying to clone it, because it will be hard to clone it perfectly with the curve it's on, maintaining texture.

*also, don't firget to get rid of the rig's subtle shadow.

Re: Clone out rig

My appologies, I misunderstood what you were trying to do. I completely missed the reflection! Getting old and addlebrained! :-)
