Creature Composite

Here I have my creature composite in which I blended several animal parts onto a bear’s body. I wanted the pieces to match in color, so I experimented heavily with the hue and saturation.

The most challenging part was trying to match up the elephant trunk. While the color of the trunk was similar to the bear, the texture didn’t line up, so it looks awkward in it’s placement.

Other parts I was able to blend in more smoothly such as the feet or tail using the clone stamp tool.

Photo Restoration

For this project I colorized this Star Trek poster. I mainly used a brush tool and primary colors to achieve this.

The 2nd part of the project was to restore a photo. I removed the holes, used noise filters, changed the the color/contrast, applied the clone stamp tool to areas missing content and sharpened the image.
