Digital Photography: Mythological Creatures

A few students have finished their mythological creature projects while others are in the final stages of combining images, adding shadows, and refining edges. Each creature should be made up of 3 different animals. Some things that students could do to make the different parts go together were using the clone stamp to copy textures and/or colors (as shown on the 2 animals below), smudging areas together, painting transparent areas of color above the images, and erasing parts with a soft brush to make the edges transparent for a more gradual transition. Each project needed an environment that was made up of 5 different images as well as 2 mythological creatures. The creatures could be similar or completely different but needed to be created individually (not copy and pasted).
