For my final Q4 project, I chose image editing. I did photoshop in the past so I knew a little bit of what I was doing during the project. I like dogs a lot but I don’t have any, and my favorite dogs are german shepherds and golden retrievers which are adorable as puppies. I wanted to create a mix of those dogs so I fused both of them together, putting the german shepherd’s head on the golden retriever’s body.
I used the lasso to cut off the german shepherds head and placed it on the golden retrievers body. I also used the cloning tool to put certain spots of color from the original german shepherd on the golden retriever and it made the dog look more realistic. I also used this tool for the grass so it wouldn’t look like the dogs head was just sitting there. I used the blur tool to blend the fur. The sponge tool helped to yellow certain areas so it could be a better match for the fur of the golden retriever. The smudge tool was even better than the blur tool even at a lower opacity. It helped to blend the fur faster and more efficiently for me.
