My first ever attempt at photo editing

Try to contain your jealousy. I know, these skills are unparalleled. Especially the horse.

I just discovered a photo editing website called Pixlr. The site was initially overwhelming, but my coping mechanism for situations like that is to find a few steps that I can do well, then repeat them over and over until they are second nature. At this point, I can “lasso” a chunk of an image, copy it, and paste it onto another background. I did this for several pictures similar to this one, and when I started on Zorro, I decided to go a step further and experiment with actual drawing- hence the horse.

If you squint your eyes and pretend Zorro has a back brace and the horse is wearing a black bag over his head, then it almost looks like a legitimate piece of photo editing. At least that’s what I’m telling myself.
