Zebra flavoured shark

Using very simple techniques we will be skinning a shark with a zebra pattern. Pick your sources carefully, as they are the most important part. I've picked a zebra and a shark from www.sxc.hu, a very vast resource of free stock photography. You will need Photoshop CS2 to do this tutorial.

Open the zebra image in Photoshop, select a large portion of it, either by using quick mask or by using the polygonal lasso tool and copy the selected portion into the shark image into a new layer.

Using the transform tool (Ctrl+T) on the newly created layer, position the zebra patch so it will more or less cover the shark.

Use Filter -> Liquify. Make sure you have "Show backdrop" checked and only use the Background layer with the "Behind" mode and a 50% opacity to see what you are doing. Start working with a big brush to move the zebra pattern to cover the shark. You can use the bracket keys [] to adjust your brush size as you need it.
With a lot of patience and trial and error you will soon have an image that looks a lot like this one.

Using the Levels command I've darkened the zebra layer a little to give it a more aggresive feel.

Hope you've learned something from this.

OK, you probably have been putting this off for some time now. I really wanted to let people know that bad credit can be repaired by bad credit mortgage credit repair FICO and bankruptcy buyout and foreclosure bailout may or may not apply. And that is all I have to say about that (at this time).

Excellent job, I didn't expect that outcome. Thanks for the tips. I will try to do the same. There are a lot of tool that I don't know how to use in photoshop
