Here is a trick for hair extending out: make a brush with just random dots. Use that brush with the smudge tool, and you'll say .
Not fair, you pulled the cute card hahahaha. Delightful. Congrats on the cup
I was going to offer the same advice as MsgtBob -- it's brush #100, I believe. I duplicate the layer, then use the smudge with a hardness of 100 and small and a less than 100 strength. Then a little masking of the edge of the layer on top and they'll blend, but with hairs instead of smooth. The other way is to use the magic wand on the negative space, choose select inverse, then use the modify edge so the marquee moves out from the edge. Create a new layer and use the paint brush with a small hard tip and sample colors from the fur to rapidly draw hair away from the animal, but not too far. You probably know this, but I love your work and if this had better hair work, it'd be up there for Gold. Terrifically cute and creative. Congrats on the bronze.
