I was so thrilled to be here at the beginning but now, by the end I am so angry. I kept having to go back and redo the save layer over and over again. I kept accidentally deleting the layer. So I only got a few videos lessons finished.
First I needed to expand the canvas to fit the wings in the right spot. So all I did was go to the crop tool and expanded 1894 pixels.
Then I changed the checkered into all white by going to the layer menu and selecting New Adjustment Layer and Brightness/Contrast.
Also I had to changed the background of the crane layer to all white ti match the silhouette layer, and I also got rid of the crane background completely by making a demo layer and changed the color on it.
Then I had to paint over the crane feet and extra wing. I made a new layer (multiple times) called paint away away painted over it used the brush tool, then I used the eraser tool to smooth out the lines.
