Hybrid Animal

By popular demand it’s the Photoshopped hybrid animal.  The gorow (crowilla?) is a great example.  Here’s a gallery of more hybrid animals.

Assignment: create two different hybrid animal images in Photoshop

Example:
>create one image of a squirrel/alligator hybrid
>create one image of a dog/gorilla hybrid

For each hybrid animal, you will turn in three files:
1. your final image as a jpeg
2. the file with the first animal that you used (example: the squirrel)
3. the file with the second animal that your used(example: the alligator)

 

Secrets to success:
1. choose an animal body and animal face that have similar colors or tones.  Darks and lights are harder to blend.

2. choose a body and face that are facing roughly the same direction.  Like with the gorilla-crow example, it is much easier to blend two profile views than a profile head and a front facing body.

You will turn in three files on Canvas:
1. your final image as a jpeg
2. the file with the first animal that you used (example: the crow)
3. the file with the second animal that your used(example: the gorilla)
