My husband andmy step daughter. I played with this one and put Melissa in John's pocket :-)but this one is totally untouched and has PLENTY of room for improvement!!! :-)

PS - this was taken with my little Kodak 1MP camera. Sorry it's such poor quality to start. Maybe I'll post another photo later in the week.:-)

Cloning around your step-daughter to removed hair, bits of body and the line on the wall.

Much nicer than mine - the blurred background and compensation in exposure really helps this one. :-)

This is an interesting treatment! And much cooler than you know - on the way to the airport, it was raining cats and dogs (or bunnies and cats!). I took a neat shot through the windshield and ths background looks fantastically similar to that shot! :-)

ferny, beside doing a very funny thing ( and thumbs up to monkey143 for accepting the joke ) you did a very good job with that fake !

I appreciated your work with putting the beard over the bunny costume !

ferny, do you have something similar to the liquify tool of PhotoShop in PSP8 ?



http://www.ephotozine.com/techniques....cfm?recid=257

Beside typical liquify effects like twirling this tool allows for puckering and bloating as well as warping.

The puckerand the warp tool can be used to shrink and shift areas in a "natural" way.

So what ?

Well, using that tool you can shrink the area of the bunny costume over the left eyebrow so that the costume profile better follows in a curved way the head hence increasing the realism even more.

So try that tool even if u have nothing to liquify at all ! It's a good help for non-linear transformations !


P.S. : Creating Peter Gabriel's MeltAlbum Cover would be much more easy now than in the beginning of the 80's : http://rec.horus.at/music/gabriel/Lyrics/pg3.html
