Ok, well I've been looking to make a cool avy + sig set, but it isn't turning out so well. I want to do something on how Kirby would look after sucking up Colonel Sanders from KFC. I'm using Photoshop CS3. Can someone give me a hand if you have to time? A good tutorial would help or you can make one for me if you want. I'll really appreciate any help, but the latter is what I'm hoping for

Here's my work:

My edits usually come out pretty blurry. I do use the blur tool alot, but I don't know what else to do to smooth out lines and such. The original Kirby image was also edited by me and there is some blur in it as well. It's just not as noticeable as the end result.

Here is the original:

My current avatar is the work of Gian. It's nice but I wanted to go with something more complex.

Sounds fun. It'll take a swing at it; see what I can come up with.

Edit:

Here's what I came up with:
kirbysanders.png


What I did was magnify the original picture and trace over it. Instead of cutting and pasting from the Sanders picture, I did a rough sketch of his hair and facial hair with the pen tool (either "make selection" and fill with the color or simply "fill path").

Here's the PSD if you want to dissect it. [link]

I gave it a go last month but stopped halfway through when I realised it looked nothing like Kirby

OMG thats awesome! Just what I was looking for. I kinda butchered your work to get it into my avatar in a fast manner (took me like 30 mins and yes that is fast for me
