Animal Instinct ......

Ok, so I am doing something a little odd .... mainly just to play around and try to get to grips with all sorts of layers, blends, masks etc .....

I took a snap of me and then was trying to turn myself into an animal (clearly a tiger) in the jungle .....

I have been copying, pasting, painting, layering, all sorts .... I've actually really struggled and been getting impatient - but here is my final outcome ...

Does anyone have any advice on good ways to do this? Or if you fancy having a go yourself I've included the before and after! Well ... I couldn't make the files small enough to post, so .....

Before -

After -

Re: Animal Instinct ......

It looks cool to me and.... well... shamelessly done :P

One thing that caught my eye was the odd ammount of shadow bleeding off your (viewers) left arm. Dunno if that's a shoddy cutout or something you painted on the body and forgot to mask out, but that looked off. Otherwise it looked like you had some fun with it
