Graphics Challenge #41. This week's challenge theme is Mythical Creatures. The idea is to create your own creature of
mythology. You can start from scratch, drawing or painting, blend images together, whatever works
best for you. Just make it your own, a brief description of your creature might be fun.
For my mythical creature, I went with a Harry Potter theme. I used a picture of a Mallard duck,
replaced it's head with a dragon's head on a separate layer, added Hagrid's head in another layer.
Used a grunge brush on the whole picture then ran the eraser over the duck and Hagrid. Used several
filters (ink outlines, posterize, gaussian blur) and several blending modes on all the layers
to get the final image. I used Adobe Photoshop Elements 4 to make this image.
