I used many different tools to create this after shot of Stanley. I went overboard, but still think the after is kind of cool. This is most certainly is a “Monet”. Remember the movie “Clueless”? They called something that looks good from afar but not so great close up a Monet.
First I used the quick selection tool to get rid of the background around Stanley.
The I opened up a sky picture I love and created a gradient with it and saved it.
I used the paint bucket tool to make it appear that Stanley is on the beach.
I don’t think he’s ever been to the beach before!
Have a great day!
