Mythological creatures

I had a sudden inspiration to create some critters from mythology. I intended to start with a faun/satyr, but I couldn't find a photo of a goat's hind legs in the right pose, so I went for a centaur instead. Source photos from Pexel.

Source images ...

And the layers ...

For the horse's right shoulder I copied the horse layer and flipped it -- that's the turned-off layer -- and used the clone stamp to copy the rump. I made a rectangle with the chestnut colour of the horse and a gradient of 100% to zero to make the colour change between the horse and the man look seamless and more natural. I blurred and dulled down the background image to make the centaur stand out better.

And now I suppose I'm just going to have to go out and take my own photograph of a goat standing on its back legs!

Shhh. . .never give away your creative secrets, it takes something away from the mythology. 😜

But seriously: a very good composited picture. I dread to think how far down one would have to scroll if I were to display all the source material I use. Good luck in tracking down a goat to pose for you. 

Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.

These are not my own words but I sure like this quote.

It's certainly a hundred or two fewer than some of the vector stuff I've done, Jules!

I can believe that.
