The newest member of the ostrich family, the Scottstrich (self portrait) by 

I replaced an ostrich’s face with mine and worked some major blending, smudging, erasing, melding, merging, cloning, cloning, and then some more cloning, and…um, feathering (giggle)….and just about 2 hours of editing, but it was SO worth it. I love my new creation – the Scottstrich. I had so much incredible fun creating this, and laughing throughout the entire editing process. I make a bizarre looking bird.
Completely created, edited, manipulated, processed, and ridiculed with Gimp.
