Kangaroo
Contest Directions: This Friday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images. Kangaroos are amazing animals native to Australia and New Guinea. They mostly move by hopping on two back legs, but they can also walk on all four legs (quite slowly). Kangaroos are the only four legged mammals that can't walk backwards. They are decent swimmers though.
Photoshop this kangaroo photo any way you wish. Some examples are - show any of these kangaroos in a new environment, make them perform some stunts, etc. (Image credit: Stephan L)

        • This looks like the Hitmans work :0) but either way it's GREAT, EXCELLENT job
        • Good One!
          For some reason he reminds me of Wile E. Coyote.
        • I gotta dedicate this one to Mac and Kellie, our fearless sprites that work behind the scenes from down under. TY Retral, Pat, Evirio, Eric, MrVman, Armatien, Splatshot, Gary, Hobbit and Retral again.
        • Masterpiece ! In some way looks like Vile Coyote at thr beginning of one of his adventures.
        • Indeed it does LOL It is a critter mix of Roo, Bunny, dingo-ish and human I snipped it apart, added a few bits and reassembled. Very therapeutic
        • Creative as heck, and reminds me Wile E. Coyote too!
        • Congratulations on the Win Hitz!
          Damn....tough to beat you chopping this well!
        • This is the best yet, you're just plain amazing, congrats on a well deserved
          win.
        • Thanks so much, Bob, Retral. SplatShot, Doc and Newsey. Retral, it really isn't a question of cartooning but more of illustration. I do a lot of over painting and sampling on these images that move them more into the art category. I will see if I can put a video together on some techniques
        • Thanks for your answer hitspinner.Respect
        • You are most welcome. Thanks back and to Gummy, Elegary and Wanderer

        • Thanks much Mr. Vman I did consider the pouch. I wanted the Alien to be bloody and it just seemed a little too gory for my taste.

          Thanks Eric..LOL.. I do hope you survive!

          Thanks very much Evirio!

          Thanks Lu! Your right! Her expression does remind one of Rowan Atkinson.

        • Awesome work overall, though the shadows could use more work
        • I see you are making up for any shortcommings in the next one LOL. Want to know a quick shadowing trick? This chop for instance,,,Copy the roo, re-paste with softest edge selection. You want the shadow edge to be as fuzzy as you can make it. Saturate all the way to full black. Grab the black layer at the top and compress down 2/3rds or so. Swap layer to fit behind the roo and reduce density to 15-25%. Set eraser tool to 5% and fade out any areas of shadow that don't look right or leave it if it looks cool. I use that method quite a bit when the image allows
